Arjun is the hero of the Mahabharata – he won Draupadi’s hand in the Swayamvar, he killed many of the Kaurava army, felled Karna and Bhishma. He also features prominently in the Bhagvad Gita, with Arjun’s hesitation in killing his own family serving as the reason for Lord Krishn expounding about the laws of the world which are relevant even today. This flawed but heroic character sits at the centre of Dr. Shinde Sweety‘s book Arjun: Without A Doubt along with the other pivotal characters in a book that aims to unravel the aura around the best known Pandava brother.
We have 11 copies of â€˜Arjun: Without A Doubt’ byÂ Dr. Shinde SweetyÂ signed by the author up for review,Â and we’re sure you’ll be very eager to read this new take on the timeless saga of Mahabharata and the legendary characters that make the epic what it is.
Overview of the Book:
I knew there was nothing poetic about death. I knew not that the most horrific battles are fought off the battlefield.
Arjun: The idealist in a non-ideal world; the warrior whose deadliest opponent was his conscience. History forgot his voice, but misquoted his silence.
My self-esteem originates from me and ends in me. Why does your honor depend on me?Â Find your own.
Draupadi: The untamed tigress, the fragrant flame, the unbridled spirit.
Power does not justify sin. Power is not virtue. Virtue is that which lasts in spite of power.
Krishn: The enigma whose unique ideology churned the battlefield into a quest for Truth.
The Missileâ€¦The Trajectoryâ€¦The Vision. The trio that makes for the core of The Mahabharata. This is their saga. Insightful, visceral and candid.
