  • 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.

    Summary

    The book is set in the backdrop of India’s most powerful empire. A revolution is about to happen and Bhishma, finds himself struggling to maintain the unity of his empire. Dhritarashtra, is the reigning King with his foreign-born Queen, Gandhari. Kunti, the Dowager-Queen, meanwhile waits in the background to see her firstborn son become the rightful ruler of the kingdom. 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?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Narration is more live... A good Read!

    The author has portrayed the characters very precisely and the emotions of the characters described here are more live than ever presented in any mythological series till yet…
    The Sub-title ‘DURYODHANA’S MAHABHARAT’ is yet more appealing, appropriate and interesting.

    ‘Life is nothing but the animated manifestation of the supreme soul. Death was its transformation to the inanimate. The soul remains, just the forms change, as per the rhythm of the universe. This is the eternal cycle!’ – The ...

    Ajaya - the other side of the great epic

    What is dharma and what is adarma? What is justice and what is injustice? What is correct and what is not? What we have read as history is correct or it is just a perspective of the historian? Who knows the truth? A person who appears to be good for few people might appear as bad for the others. The history has different versions and different perspectives depending upon the authors or historians. In this book, the author retells the globally well-known tale of Mahabharatha with just one majo...

    Logical version of Epic Mahabharata

    Must read !!
    Best ever book. Logic behind every miracle happened in Mahabharata. This book justifies the phrase "History is written by victor"
    What was the Truth at the time of Mahabharata no one can know. Still being a logical person, one must consider both the sides. After reading this book I can only wonder what would happen if suyodhan emerged as a victor. 5 stars are not enough !!
    Great work Anand neelakantan !!

    Nothing is black and white

    Mahabharatha is never as simple as Pandavas being good and Kauravas being bad. There is always a grey area in which people behave. This book takes this to a completely new level. It introduces Mahabharata from the vantage point of Suyodhana (popularly known as Duryodhana).

    Nice Read for everybody. You have to be patient though as this books challenges the notion that Pandavas were better than Kauravas
