3.0 out of 5 stars Worth every rupee but there are a few catches
By Harshit Sharma on 15 June 2020
This book is undoubtedly one of the most eye-opening things I have ever come across. Due to my ignorance, I always assumed the Vedas and the Upanishads to be a set of religious commandment just like the Quran & Bible are. But they are so not!
So, read this book as an explanation of an age-old text
THINGS I LOVED:
Easy-going, frank, and cool way that the writer has used make it more appealing
The drawings alongside are just a cherry on top
THINGS I DISLIKED:
The author has, for reasons best known to her, believed the Aryan Invasion Theory to be a reality. This theory-and, it is called a theory for this very reason-has never been backed by any proofs. A 2-crore cash prize is still up for grabs to anyone who can prove its validity. Sad. Dr. Ambedkar, himself, denounced and rejected this European theory.
Further, due to the AIT, all the dates of the vedas and upanishads are incorrect. But ignore the dates, go for the content.
The forced portrayal of ShahJahan as some great guy who wanted to know more about these texts and how he documented them is WRONG. he did so, to smuggle knowledge out to his arab world, not due to his secularism (which again he lacked dearly!)
There is undeniable proof that 27 Rishikas (female sages) were part of the team of the enlightened ancients who wrote these very Vedas and Upanishads. And yet, the author tells the readers that women were not allowed to read these texts. Isn't that quite silly?
CONCLUSIONS:
I say this again, there are portions of this books that just hit the nail on its head perfectly and WILL touch your inner core. You MUST read this but with a grain of salt.
Owing to the minor flaws, I wouldn't recommend this book directly for kids. They are too susceptible to decipher the flaw and the fact. But you as a parent can go through this and filter, after doing your own fact-checking, the stuff.
For someone who is not a historian, I commemorate the author. These flaws occur. It's not a big deal. But the author at least prodded me on a hunt to dig facts, for this reason alone I think I will be buying her version of Gita as well.
Thanks Amazon for the blazing delivery and the secure packaging!

1.0 out of 5 stars An appeal to the publisher.
By Hayagreev on 16 January 2019
****This review is JUST about the awful print quality****

Dear Publisher of hachette!

I bought this book as I already read The Gita for children by the same author, which I loved reading. That was a great reading, both content wise and the printed quality wise. But in this book, the content is so good so far, but the print quality is awful. Why you reduce cost in printing? The letters shall be bit more darker. Please correct it in the future prints. Please see the attached picture. Left side is the new book and the other one is The Gita.

About the writing, I would say 5 stars would not be enough. It is not just for children. I am a father of two and I love it.
