    Description

    Ajaya - Epic of the Kaurava Clan is a story based on one of greatest epics of India, The Mahabharata. But, while Jaya was the story about the victory of the Pandavas, Ajaya is the story from the invincible Kauravas point of view.

The other key characters in the book are Eklavya, Karna, Parashurama, Balarama, Jara, and Takshaka. Amidst, all the confusion and power struggle, Prince Suyodhana, the rightful heir to the throne stands tall, determined to claim the throne. Meanwhile, in the corridors of Hastinapur a plot to overthrow the present King and conquer India is brewing. Who ultimately gets to sit on the throne and be the most deserving King?

    Mahabharata - The most told story; now told in an untold way

    Ajaya - Roll of the Dice is written by 'Anand Neelakantan' and published by Leadstart Publishing

    We have heard the story Mahabharat in a umpteen number of ways... A lot of people have told and retold the story in their own interpretation... Still, not even one version have stopped to capture my and any other reader's attention... The epic has all along, without any doubt, my favorite story... Where this book differs is that it speaks for the lost, the Kauravas... Not just it speaks for the ...

    Ajaya is the real Jaya !!!

    After I read Anand Neelakantan's first book about the Asura leader Ravana's story, I was impressed.. The story of Ravana and his people really made me feel damn sympathetic towards the Asuran leader,,,,

    And the author does it again with Ajaya....
    A Truly amazing rendition of the greatest Epic ever told (Now I feel sympathetic towards the Kauravas)... Ajaya is better than the author's previous book...

    Hopefully The Rise of Kali, the 2nd book in the Ajaya series will be released soon becaus...

    Real nice

    What a book. Seriously what a book. Managed to read it in 3 working days.

    What is this book about?

    A. This book is about Suyodhana(Yeah he was called Suyodhana) or Duryodhana, as he is popularly known and the Mahabharata from his point of view.

    Why is this book interesting?

    B. A dumb question which i asked and would anyways love to answer. It first and foremost teaches you a lot more about Mahabharata than the TV series taught us. Most important it talks from the point of view of the van...

    a completely distorted twisted tale

    i am a big fan of the epic though i am not hindu. i love the stories and the characters. when i purchased this book i thought that it would tell the tale of the Mahabharata from Duryodhana's point of view. but when i did start i was completely shocked. the shocking and reversed portrayal of each and every character. all the good are evil and most of the bad are saintly. especially the protagonist of this story. its not a tale of the Mahabharata rather a story about cast system and not indiv...

    A work of fiction...using characters from Mahabharata

    I had read the author's Asura earlier and appreciated some of the plotlines (not all) which he had developed while rewriting the Ramayana.

    But Ajaya is a mediocre piece of work. The author has taken the central characters in Mahabharata and rewritten the nature of the characters entirely to his convenience.

    Krishna has been given some of the behavioural attributes of Shakuni. Duryodhana is shown as a person who dislikes killing even a bird. Kripa is shown as a better teacher than Drona. Bh...

    Ajaya-Epic of the Kaurava Clan

    As an Indian we always feel proud to have two great eternal epics "Ramayana" & "Mahabharata", which clearly depict our ancient culture and guide us to move in our life. they have been narrated innumerable times through epic, play,drama,serial or movie but all these narrations aim to a common point-The noble Pandavas and the ignoble Kauravas, and how did the 'evil' get vanquished by the so called 'protectors of dharma'. But history is always written by the winners and winners not only write,th...

    Pathetic retelling

    A pathetic, trivialised version of Mahabharatha. I bought this book with so much hope after reading Anand Neelakantan's Asura but was sorely disappointed. I have read many versions of Mahabharatha and stories of different characters. Most of them had class. This is so bad I regret reading it.

    Two Stars

    Its AWESOME!! I hadn't read any of his works before. So I didn't have any idea how this book will be. But oh my god oh my god!! Tbh He could've spoiled the book because he was dealing w a real sensitive issue i.e he wrote from the point of view of the defeated (the Kauravas) which is a lot different from our beliefs. And he did it! Its so logical & to the point that you just cannot argue that he meddled with our history. Just read the book & get an idea how different this theory is.Good to kn...

    Fair

    Author has presented Duryodhana & Kauravas as heroes & Pandavas and Krishna as villains which was difficult to digest. Conditions of lower caste miserable during that era but solo bad hard to believe. Just read to see Mahabharata with different angle but don't take it too seriously after all it is Fiction.
