About the Author
The author in his own words: "I was born in a quaint little village called thripunithura, on the outskirts of cochin, kerala. Located east of mainland ernakulam, across vembanad lake, this village had the distinction of being the seat of the cochin royal family. However, it was once more famous for its hundred-odd temples, the various classical artists it produced, and its music school. I remember many an evening listening to the faint rhythm of chendas from the temples and the notes of the flute escaping over the rugged walls of the school of music. However, in recent times, gulf money and the rapidly expanding city of cochin have wiped away all remaining vestiges of that old world charm. The village has evolved into the usual, unremarkable, suburban hellhole, clones of which dot india. Growing up in a village with more temples than was necessary, it was little wonder that mythology fascinated me. Ironically, i was drawn to the anti-heroes. Life went on…i became an engineer, joined the indian oil corporation, moved to bangalore, married aparna, and welcomed my daughter ananya, and son, abhinav. But the voices of yore refused to be silenced. I felt impelled to narrate the stories of the vanquished and the dammed, and give life to those silent heroes we have overlooked in our uncritical acceptance of the conventional renderings of our epics.This is anand’s third book and follows the outstanding success of his #1 bestsellers, asura tale of the vanquished and ajaya book i, roll of the dice."

1. Yudhisthira and Duryodhana visited Krishna before Kurukshetra war, when he was sleeping. Both had the intention to ask Krishna to join their side in war along with his band of Yadav warriors. Yudhisthira sat near his head while Duryodhana sat near his feet. Krishna woke up to see Duryodhana first. Thus, he decided that his soldiers, the Narayana Sena will fight for Kauravas, while he, himself, will take on Pandava's side.
2. Gandhari met Duryodhana before his final combat, that is the mace fight with Bheema. Gandhari opened the cloth from her eyes and filled his son with energy. However, since Duryodhana was wearing leaves to protect his modesty, his knees did not receive the energy emitted from Gandhari's eyes. That is why, Bheema was able to hit him in this body part, and which ultimately caused his fall.
Had these been included my reading experience would have been all encompassing. However, I enjoyed reading the book all the same.
What a beautiful style of writing!
