    Awesome Reading! Mahabharata illustrated in best way!

    It is a good work by Devdutt Pattanaik! Very few can explain the whole of mahabharata in such a simple way as he has done it through his work. Clears many things about mahabharat. Thank you for such a divine work, enriching the youth and readers with the culture of this great epic. Go for it! Its a good retelling.
    I also came to know about the writer being consultant of the TV serial Mahabharat telecasted @ Star Plus.
    The Serial is a superhit and most of the instances you can relate with the ...

    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.

    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 Donig...

    One of the most insightful books on Hindu Mythology.

    Devdutt Pattanaik has given one of the best insights into Mahabharata. The book provides with a fresh perspective into the great mythology and also increases the reader's understanding of the purpose of writing the epic. The author has not only painted a vivid picture of the events in the Mahabharata but also has clearly identified the lessons to be learned from it. Such a fine balance is difficult to come by and shows the extensive research that the author has put in. There is no doubt that ...

    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 g...

    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 ...

    Jaya

    Of all the books I have read on Mahabharata, this is what i would call the most amatuerish attempt to decipher one of the gratest tales of our time. The description of events is wrong, the meanings presented border on chlidishness and outright B**l S**t. Mr.Pattanaik please re-study the vedas thoroughly before jumping to conclusions. I would recommend this book to kid's rather than grown up's. Not worth the money and the time.

    All characters and incidents portrayed in negative manner

    I purchased this book seeing overwhelming positive reviews on flipkart. After going through this book,I felt complete disappointment as there is no positive take away from this book. Mahabharat is intended to give positive life lessons.This book completely falls flat in portraying characters as inspiring one,instead this book describes every character in the epic with a ulterior motive and every incident with bad moral take away.

    Finally,This is complete waste of money and time.I never wrote...
