Some thoughts on the book

Loved the way the book was presented connecting the past events with the philosophy behind it and making it relevant. A great insight and a different perspective on the epic.

You won't regret it even if you have read the original.

Devdutt has put his knowledge of Indian Mythological in bits and pieces as footnotes,which at times become more interesting than the text.
Coming to Mahabharat content, author has maintained a very logical sequence and also enthused many folk stories aptly(,ie why "Retelling") in the content. (View complete review)

Finest book available on Mahabharata in out times

This is the finest book available on Mahabharata in out times. This gives not only covers Mahabharata of Vedvyas but also many variations of it. Writer also attempted to find the relevance in modern times.

Intersting but...

The book is an easy read, captures the gist of the story, and takes interesting detours that not commonly seen in the standard canon. The book highlights and celebrates what we may find weird by modern mores. So far so good.

Some of the author's comments and observations may seem uber-bold (by say Rajaji's standards) and even provocative. However, the summaries/analysis accompanying each chapter, if one may call them so, seem quite shallow and heavily influenced by others such as Wendy Doniger. Most of these comments go like: "Rationalists say ...". Indeed, they strongly reek of powerpoint su

Jaya

Outstanding book. If you have read Devdutt before, he won't disappoint you with this one. Rich in depth, fluent in language, and simple in style. The greatest epic ever told. Devdutt simplifies it for us to digest the complex meanings and semiotics of The Mahabharata.

Post modern approach

This book is extremely powerful....it does not insult the intelligence of the reader nor tries to 'sell' Mahabharata to children by being defensive and apologetic or editing out controversial episodes, as one observes in Rajagopalachari's books or in BR chopra's teleserial......very intelligent for the young generation....everyone knows Bhisma's story but then Devdutt says - he is the young son who gave up sex so that the old father could remarry - such a radical but honest approach.

A MUST READ..!!

I had always thought of reading and knowing the Mahabharata but somehow I just couldn't sit down and go through the traditional one. That is when I stumbled upon JAYA. And grateful as I am, this book is for all those who just want to know that little something about our culture and beliefs. The work put in by the author in gathering the facts will leave you absolutely stunned and once you are done with it you would feel like acting like an expert on hindu Mythology.....!!! Really it is that good...... So go ahead and grab your copy..... do not borrow it but Buy it..... it is one of the must ha

jaya ho

dev has done a great service to mahabharat by introducing it in short and interesting form while not losing the strands of the story.
the various viewpoints in regional variants have also been taken care of in the book.
overall a collector's item

A research item

A good research work, complete with family hierarchy maps, and relationships between characters in the Mahabharata. A contemporary style of writing. But that's it.

It lacks the passion, emotions, and the spiritual message be found in a version of Mahabharata written by a devotee or a yogi. And it trivialises some deeper aspects; like Brahmacharya is written as just giving up of sex.

It isnt completely illustrated, as i expected. Has a few pictoral depictions in some pages.

Jaya - The illustrated Retelling of the Mahabharata

The book making a very enjoyable reading - more so because of the tit -bits of information and the trivia , the pages are peppered with . Very well written and gripping for a story told so many times and so many ways .

The mention in Dharma about -

1. The sense of casteism seems to have developed strong roots then . The fact of three tier society of Rajas , Priests and commoners and one cannot and should not move from one to another may not be relevant in today's world

2. The fact that people should diligently follow the four stages of life - Bhrammacharya , Grihastacharya , ashramacharya

A retelling divorced from the true Spirit of Mahabharata

I purchased this book to have a easy and interesting read on the Mahabharata. However, I did not think it will be so much divorced from the Spirit of Mahabharata- Spirituality. Any attempt to retell the Epic without dealing with the Spiritual significance of the events, characters and portrayal is bound to fall far short of a faithful retelling.

Mahabharata puts forth every possible human predicament before our eyes, in the form of its characters and situations and tells us the correct way of dealing with them through the various Spiritual messages scattered all over it (including the Bhagav

Spectacular book

This has to be one of the best books on Mahabharat.
The best part of book is it is impartial and factual. Also every chapter end with few bullet points, trying to connect events and customs in story, with probable prevailing customes in reality around that period. It interprets Mahabharat not just as a stoy, but also from a rational point of view.
A Must-Read !

True "Jaya" in totality!

All I have is Respect for Mr.Devdutt for his brilliant understanding of mythology and mastery in portraying the most complex thoughts in the simplest , believable and UN-offending manner.
Jaya is mahabharat the biggest epic ever written uncovered to the roots...
I loved reading every single word from it...like I was discovering my own past.
Its a must read for all mythology buffs!
