'Adi Parva' is gold!

A divine story so brilliantly told, it isn't surprising that the beautiful hardbound cover charmingly says 'via' Amruta Patil.

If you like me loved her previous masterpiece 'Kari', then you will love this too -- it's a whole new dimension.
Just as 'Kari' had a stunning homage to Frida Kahlo's The Two Fridas, Adi parva has a wonderfully drawn page inspired by Matisse's The Dance (If I am not mistaken. perhaps there are more hidden gems and references, who knows?). The artwork on the whole is stunningly simple, vibrant, and original.
The book is an effortless flow of words and images to make y

Riveting!

The quality of the printing itself is remarkable and once you're able to get over this, the beauty of the artwork with its rich colours and gentle touch will overwhelm! Some of the two-page spreads are absolutely awe-inspiring.

This is not one tale but several, interlinked stories brought together masterfully by the storyteller through common themes and lessons. Even if you have already read the Mahabharata's Adi Parva, nothing can prepare you for the freshness of this interpretation. A recurring thought while reading this was: I know these stories, but not like this.

Absolutely marvellous s

Stunning and sublime

Between Kari and Adi Parva, Amruta Patil makes a huge artistic leap. Stunning paintings, detailed and thorough research and an artistic beauty put together make Adi Parva a treasure for anybody interested in mythology and art. In casting herself as a 'sutradhar', a story teller, Patil adds herself to the ancient Indian tradition of telling stories and keeping traditions alive in a compelling and exciting fashion. A must keep ...and never lend!

Beautiful, Captivating and a Work of Art!

There are few books that erase the thin line between literature and art. Amruta Patil's Adi Parva belongs to that genre. A honest and different take on one of the primordial epics of Indian literature, the book is made even more resplendent with gorgeous works of art on every page. The cover image of Vishnu in an azure ocean and the chaotic picturisations of the yugas are some of the artwork that stands out.

A keeper if you are an avid reader of the Mahabharata or a lover of beautiful images!

Such a illustrative way to know Indian mythological episode

I finished it half, but honestly you never realize time passing while reading this. Novel contains different style in illustrations, so you get this little surprise after in between with the. Its the way you drive in the story with the beautiful scenery passing by. Im excited to finish rest. Graphic novel readers must read this.

Expensive but really nice

I got the book when it was on sale so i got it for 500 instead of it's whooping mrp 800. It's a beautiful book with interesting illustrations and a new take on graphic novel. It's for adults and not entriely a kid's fairy tale book, unless you want to work with them on it. Buy it, wait for it to get discounted though. the copy i got had dog eared pages but flipkart replaced it very soon. the replaced copy is in excellent condition. the delivery was prompt i'd say.

A giant effort in a book

This is surely a different kind of graphic novel, an almost encyclopedic take on Indian mythology with some wonderful art. The text may get tedious at times but the book should be picked so that you can go back to it time and again.

An artist's delight

This book is a marvel of visual delight. Every page has been approached as a work of art and not just another link in a story. That makes the turning of each page a great excitement. The artist/ author's visual style is contemporary yet very Indian, making it a great study of technique and color play for every amateur painter.
The writing style is friendly and somewhat sardonic, giving you the chance for a quite chuckle every now and then. Its narrated in an informal conversational tone, that makes the otherwise heavy topics relatively more approachable, and , perhaps even, a little more under

Adi Parva, churning of the ocean

Not exactly a thriller, 2 or 3 more volumes are still to be done and it begins when the "saga" of the Mahabharata was only in gestation... but wonderful, colorful paintings, Amruta Patil, the author, lives by the sea and you can tell it. Nothing to do with ordinary picture books on the epic for kids. To be enjoyed again and again.

Too philosophical tp be a graphic novel

the book itself has a nice feel to it, with its binding and art, but its too philosophical, and most people might not find it to be their cup of tea as a graphic novel
