Book : Jaya, the illustrated retelling of the Mahabharata
Author: Devdutt Pattanaik
As I am an avid reader and love tales from from Indian mythology, I bought this book to know more about Kauravas and Pandavas.
It is an interesting and engaging book which retells the story of Mahabharata from the ancestors of the Pandavas and Kauravas, to the end of the snake sacrifice made by Janmenjaya when his father, Parikshit died of snake bite.
This is a tale of division of land and household and the exile of the heroes.
A war takes place at Kuru-kshetra between the Kauravas and Pandavas. Who won the war and what was Krishna’s role in it is what forms the crux of the book.
This heart stopping and dazzling book ,will thrill you till the very last word.
