  • Description

    In My Gita, acclaimed mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik demystifies The Bhagavad Gita for the contemporary reader. His unique approach thematic rather than verse-by-verse makes the ancient treatise eminently accessible, combined as it is with his trademark illustrations and simple diagrams. In a world that seems spellbound by argument over dialogue, vi-vaad over sam-vaad, Devdutt highlights how Krishna nudges Arjuna to understand rather than judge his relationships. This becomes relevant today when we are increasingly indulging and isolating the self (self-improvement, self-actualization, self-realization even selfies!). We forget that we live in an ecosystem of others, where we can nourish each other with food, love and meaning, even when we fight. So let My Gita inform your Gita

    Mind-blowing!

    This book introduces a new thought, a new perception of Gita. Devadutt Patnaik's perception it is. Having bought three of his books, I have realised that his 'Perception' makes sense.
    Thus, my faith in purchasing the latest book has kept me in good stead.
    It is an engrossing, informative and entertaining read. True to Devadutt's style of presenting his ideas through self-made illustrations and mneumonics which help even a newcomer to hindu philosophy grasp the complicated, but eternal wisdo...

    Must buy!

    Without wasting time on a clichéd note about delivery n all, I'll come straight to the content of the book. It's a remarkable book! I had watched numerous videos on Mr. Pattanaik, some were applauding him but mostly disdaining. Still I decided to give him a try. Reason: his idea of subjectivity was very appealing to me. And besides, it's His Gita. He interprets it the way he feels. And now it's my Gita. I can do whatever the hell I want with it 😅. Anyways I have read only a few pages and I ...

    Value-for-money

    About Product: Impressive page quality and printing, attractive cover, delivered on time.

    About Containt: My Gita is not The Bhagwat Gita but Devdutts Gita that contains a bit of essence of The Bhagwat Gita, literally a simplified version. It is nothing but an endeavour to generalise some complex ideas. I like the brief history of The Gita, the contrast with western ideas, subjective stories and Devdutts illustration specially. But Devdutt could mention translated version of the original ver...

    My Gita - Only for interested

    As the title suggests it's the author's version of the famous book "THE GITA". Pattanaik's version of My Gita has its own order of chapters. Gita consists of 18 chapters and My Gita too has the same number of chapters but this particular book has a flow which connects each chapters and do not flummox the readers.All over the book there were many illustrations which are enough to understand what is said. It would surely spark the reader who is eager to know about the holy book and only for the...
