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."

It is not easy to pen down the words of the vanquished. It takes courage and wisdom to put forward such sensitive topics without possibly irking a conservative and rebellious country like ours! So proud to have read this book! A must must read!❤
Some parts of the book touch upon the philosophy of Hinduism (Which is surprisingly very well researched!), while other parts go for an almost atheistic view of the Mahabharata. The main theme revolves around the caste system and how it was misinterpreted throughout the ages.
While some parts might seem like a never ending rant about caste-this and caste-that, the book offers a wonderful insight into the the mind of Dur(Su)yodhana. The characters are very memorable and there are quite a few action filled battle scenes as well.
Overall, this is a BRILLIANT, WELL-WRITTEN, WELL-RESEARCHED book.
I would definitely recommend this book to people of all age groups as this would keep you and your mind occupied for quiet sometime even after you are done reading the book.
