    Description

    The epitome of Sanskrit literature, The Mahabharatha is a story of war, conflict, bloodshed and men. But it also the story of the women by their side, and primarily the story of the children of Ganga and Satyavati. The Winds of Hastinapur is a mythological fantasy about the women behind the Mahabharatha.

    Summary of the Book

    Ganga, the river goddess, is dying. Bereft of a virgin to pass her knowledge and being to, she is fading away and seeks to tell the story of the Mahabharatha as she saw it. In her words and the words of other strong women from the epic such as Satyavati, this book lays bare the greatest epic ever told from the women who knew it best.

    Quite a good read.

    Mahabharata , the great epic , is impregnated with so many sub-stories that it would not be an exaggeration to say that it might take a lifelong read to absorb all the intriguing incidents and their inter-connections. And it is a story of women , women with sharp minds , great political vision and bodacious beauty to allure men of high stature making them mere marionettes . Sharath Komarraju , in his book The Winds of Hastinapur , has woven a story picking two not-so-focused female characters...

    Very interesting premise

    This is a well crafted work, with rich language and narrative that details the starting of Mahabharata. The book takes an unique view point and describes the events from the views point from two main female characters - Ganga and Satyavati. Definitely an impressive read.

    Mahabharata retake from a different angle

    Mahabharata has been retold many times, but in "The Winds of Hastinapur", Sharath Komarraju has analyzed the epic from the perspective of its two most powerful female characters - Ganga and Satyavati. The interpretations of the events leading to the epic war from a different angle, without losing the original plot, is what makes this book engrossing. The author's fluent wit and creativity stand out as the tale is retold with panache. Even if you have heard the story many times before, you wil...

    Love the perspective from which its written - awesome read!

    I loved the author's idea of narrating the story from the lead female characters perspective! I did not think it would be so very much different but was pleasantly surprised at the end on how effective this approach was!

    I also loved the fact that what we often dismiss as a figment of imagination or mythology has been approached in a scientific way which seems very plausible and convincing.

    The transition from one character's story presentation to another is very smooth and does not disrup...

    Brilliant Start!

    The Winds of Hastinapur is the tale of "the Beginning of the End"!!


    It is perhaps, the most beautiful re-telling of the epic, I have ever come across. Beautiful in the sense that it reads much like a poetry! The story is full of colours, vividness and the emotions and depths, expressed by the two leads and paints a really intoxicating and remarkable imprint into one's mind. The characters seem full-fledged, layered upon respective perfections and faults, and woven into a literal state of ar...

    A wonderfuly refreshing read

    This is a fresh, refreshing take on the Mahabharata and makes for quite an interesting read. Sharath has basically told the tale from the point of view of the female characters and in this book he starts all the way at the begining of the drama in the Kuru race. He begins with the characters of Ganga and Satyavati. It’s worth a read, even for someone who is intimately familiar with the story. A number of more obscure legends have been weaved into the tale to create the world of the celestials...

    A other-side of Hastinapur

    Enjoyed reading the winds of hastinapur, a well written descriptive on mythology. What I love overall is a different perspective and the author has chosen a thread from were few people can pick up and weave splendidly. This book requires readers who are ardent fan of Indian mythology, there are certain section or snippets which I found little difficult to comprehend, then over few pages the curiosity was raised. A good read to know the other side Hastinapur.

    Interesting take on Mahabharat featuring Ganga and Satyavati

    We have recently read a lot of books on Mahabharat featuring important characters like Arjun, Draupadi, Bhishma and others. However, this book features two more important women - Ganga and Satyavati, often neglected in mythological fiction.

    Ganga is the mother of Bhishma, who bore and killed seven more children to Shantanu. Satyavati is a fisher-princess who is Bhishma's stepmother, married to Shantanu. The comparison and intricate detailing of these two feisty women becomes the moot point...

    Winds of Hastinapur- Review

    “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. This book has a brilliant cover design. But then, the writing has simply made the cover seem under-rated. It’s refreshingly different in many ways. It’s a unique narration of the Mahabharat-One of the most debated works of Indian mythology. A tinge of retrospective thinking and a vivid role description makes this book stand out from the rest in the book stand. Sharath Kommaraju manages to tickle the right brain of the readers by giving multiple shades to cha...

    The beginning of a magician-in-literature

    Every Indian grows up with the tales of the Mahabharata and the Ramayana from childhood. This embosses in the young mouldable minds a mystic, subconscious and unexplainable reverence for the seemingly complex yet simple Indian mythology.

    Bed time stories by grandmother on the game of dice, the super abridged versions for children by Amar Chitra Katha or the highly dramatic version of the Mahabharata telecasted by Doordarshan every Sunday during the 1990’s, left me feeling that they were all ...
