Ajaya – Roll Of The Dice | Book Review

Like every other book that tries to break the shackles of the usual story-telling into something very non-contemporary, it is totally up to the reader if he wants to accept the standpoint or not. Not that I was always under the blind impression of the goodness of Pandavas, I somehow knew all is not what it is portrayed as, yet this book w My first book by this much praised author and I must say I totally loved it.


For a nation that has been raised up hearing the virtues of the Pandavas, the first few pages will come as a blow on every mind. Jan 19, Rohit Sharma rated it it was ok.

But do let me know your thoughts on the book if you have read it. But the point is him sticking to Duryodhana was merely symbolic. How did Krishna came to be considered as god. I am surprised Neelakantan did this, because in Asura, both Ravana and Bhadra are complex and real characters, not the paragons of virtue.

While history is written by the victors, the losing side is condemned to silence. But Anand Neelakantan has won this aam admi!!

Located east th mainland Ernakulam, across Vembanad Lake, this village had the distinction of being the seat of the Cochin royal family. Mahabharata from Duryodhana’s eyes!

The beauty of the Mahabharat is that it lends itself to interpretation, despite some very hard-driven facts, and allows the individual to correlate with personal experiences. The central philosophy of the book delves with the principles of Dharma, Adharma and Varna-the caste system.

A fantastic, interesting and engrossing read to o an insight of Mahabharata in an entirely different perspective. Or the epic disaster of Suyodhan kissing Subhadra mind it – lip to lip right below the nose of brother Balaram, that was like foll “Wow” moment of the entire book.

Well, all this is in the realm of the mundane. Arjuna even questions his valour at one point in the war, practically saying that it is upto him and Bhima to win the wars, so that Yudhishtra can rule. That goes to show that our society is truly ajata His friendship with Aswathama and Karna was truly touching and admirable.


Book Review | Ajaya | Roll Of The Dice by Anand Neelkanthan

I have always been fascinated by mythological stories. If only the Indian TV Channels dramatize this epic in a rational way. This book opened up a new dimensionand made me think and debatewhat have we been subject to all along? Dec 18, Samarpita Sharma rated it really liked it.

He is an expert in retelling, remaking, aaya and questioning. This is the first book in a series of two books The thought itself held so much promise. But at the same time he is naive and gullible.

Poets became paid copywriters to glorify the carnage. Anand has depicted how story could be if Suyodhana was not an evil person. The beauty of the Mahabharat i Ajaya is the synthesis between the author’s attempt to portray the other side of the coin, and a generous dose of fiction. The infinite shades are nothing but infinite perspectives. The characters are same but each one of them is a different shade fhe gray in Anand’s version.
