CHAKRAVYUH is a modern adaptation of the greatest epic ever written in the history of humankind; MAHABHARATA. This is a retelling of a part of the epic from the perspective of a young warrior who was descendant of Kuru dynasty; born to lead; but destiny had some other plans for him. A loyal son, a loving brother, a caring husband, a disciplined disciple and a true warrior defied all the odds to be decorated in history for many generations to come. His skills and intellect were no less than his forefathers, but he was not bound to the dogmas followed by his ancestors. His judgement of situations was his own, and he didn’t follow the dynastic parlances. In many ways, he was ahead of his times and definitely more mature than his age.
When greed was at its epitome; materialistic desires lead to destruction of humility; the rules of Dharma were rewritten to benefit the selfish desires of just a group; A young boy defied all the odds and wrote a new chapter of his life, becoming immortal in our hearts. This is a story of a chosen warrior who was separated from his father at the age of three. This is a story of a boy, as handsome as sons of Ashwin brothers; as strong as the son of Vayu; as calm as son of Yama; and as skilled as the son of Indra. This is a story of the son of Subhadra and nephew of Krishna.
This is the story of ABHIMANYU.
Aniket S Sharma, native Indian, has keen interest in the mythological history of India. He believes in reflecting at the historical events and translate it per the modern era. His interest in understanding the great Indian epics has inspired him in retelling the stories. His idea of following the mythologies is to discuss the achievements of the characters and place them in the modern context. His thoughts of discovering the life from each chapter of history have helped him in identifying the deepest hidden meanings. His mantra of life is “Create Opportunity”, and he believes, “if we create new opportunities each passing day, it would be no less than achieving Nirvana.”
He is also a part of Software Industry and invested more than a decade of his life in it, learning a new chapter every day, as he claims. His previous work was in the field of Business Analysis called “A Quick Reference to Business Analysis” where he added his experiments with the new stream in IT back then.

A good read, the pace of the book is just right and very well expressed. Interesting and unique to see the perspective of 17 year old teenager.
One of the good book I have read after a long time by new generation writer. This book focus on Abhimanyu and his role and life in Mahabharata . Even though the legend of Mahabharata is well known, but the author's narration make every scene visible to readers as they are living in that era only. I like the writing style of Aniket.
