The Marathi book narrates the story of Karna, the tragic and respected hero from the great epic, The Mahabharata. The author has tried to immortalise Karna through this novel.
Summary Of The Book
Through Radheya, the author strives to find and explore the thin line between righteousness and duty by citing Karna’s story. By painting a picture of Karna’s journey, Desai states that while there is nothing wrong in wanting to win, one must be prepared to accept defeat as well.
The story of Karna, the immortal character from The Mahabharata, has time and again been a matter of interest to all modern writers. His story has been enacted in dramas and has been the subject matter of many novels. This novel is based on Karna's life, and the author, Ranjeet Desai, is an accomplished and authentic writer of ancient and historical events.
In this book, he has portrayed Karna's individuality and his circumstances and resultant compulsion to fight for what’s right. Deprived of his parents’ love, discarded and insulted, Karna experienced suffering throughout his life because of the mistakes committed by others, in which he had no part or control.
He was asked to give away whatever he had, but was given nothing in return by his mother Kunti. At every stage in his life, he was taunted due to his humble origins and ridiculed for hailing from a lower class. Though he was born to noble parents, he was unable to prove the same to his tormentors. This terribly disturbed Karna, and his inherent strength was weakened due to loneliness.
With this novel, the author has paid a rich tribute to Karna. The tale of the fearless warrior who fought against his own kin in order to stay loyal to his friend serves as the perfect story through which Desai talks about victory and defeat, and about how sometimes, losing is not such a bad option after all. This book is available in Hindi as well.

There are a few things that are not sculpted or made, they are created by the creator or an artist as the creations happen through him/her, by the virtue of the God's grace. Radheya is one such biography, a brilliant attempt to portray, arguably, the life of the greatest warrior ever to live on the Earth. A must buy, a must read and an ornament you should give your personal library, a chance to adorn.
This is my first full sledged read in the Marathi language. I am glad i started with this, on the persuasion of my mama. I have read 'Mrutyunjay' as well. This book is definitely at par, if not better, if ever a comparison is to be made.
The key to the fact that the book is a 'one-setting' read is its brevity. The 2nd chapter of the book is probably the best of all.
the man with most power amongst all . the 1st kunti putra......the only man to who has ability to beat arjuna,the man who is invincible with any shastra....the real friend ....and with most unfortunate end...long live karna in my heart
the writer wrote the best ever story of karna than the one in mrutyunjaya...the language was far better than mrutyunjaya....short book can read it very well good story and ....one must learn many things from karna....
I got it a bit late. maybe 5 days. And i completed the book that very day. great book. But "Mrutyunjay" (Shivaji Sawant) is the best if you want to know better the mahabharata and KARNA. Hovever there is a spot on the book maybe of glue which disappointed me bcs I not only read a lot of books but I like to preserve them bcs i myself have a large library. Ayway, Pages and quality is perfect. Love u flipkart, ur the best.........
Ranjit sir Apratim Book "Radheya", I just love the way u have written, Guys you just can not stop once you start the book. its nice to read about Karn & it actually force you to think about "Radheya". After this book I just like Karn a lot.....
