Review

There has to be a law against writing and releasing books in parts - it is sheer torture to be kept waiting for the next one! The Aryavarta Chronicles is a refreshing retelling of the Mahabharata or rather the part of the Mahabharata that is connected with Krishna. Unlike the stuff dished out by the likes of Ashok Banker, this retelling has its basis in what can best be described as non-mainstream versions of the Mahabharata - stuff that we might have never otherwise read. Krishna Udayasankar is to be thanked for the obvious work of love here (and should be tortured and jailed for keeping the readers waiting for part II); may his tribe live long and prosper well. Quite obviously I am now a great fan of his. --Valmiki Nayak on Oct 21, 2012

Having been a huge fan of the new wave of mythological retelling, I had been looking forward to the release of " The Aryavarta Chronicles ". The author should be commended, first off, in even thinking of tackling an epic the stature of "The Mahabharata". The epic has been etched in our memories with the excellent TV series and the millions of comic and graphic renditions. I was frankly, not looking for it, to hit the levels of "Jaya" by Devdutt Patnaik (a personal favorite in terms of Mahabharat based stories), but I was expecting something riveting, knowing that it was to be from Lord Krishna's view. --Aneen Suresh on Sep 20, 2012

I read the book. I have read other books too. Finally, some class in writing from an Indian in the recent times. Fiction not Fiction. True Not true. Maybe, maybe not. But the book is unput downable. A great job done in stripping the frills (aka myth/divinity/whatever from the epic) and presenting the facts chronologically with a touch of politics at every page. Sweet. A story like Mahabarata has enough and more room for the narration to lose focus. The authoress has done a commendable job of not venturing astray and sticking to the main character Govinda till the end. --Eashwar R on Mar 20, 2013
