    A very sensual easy to read fast paced novelistic version Like all retellings it shows the author's own idiosyncratic take on the characters and events He imbues the sex scenes particularly the seuence in which Kunti summons the Gods to father her children with luscious detail has a science fictional take on the vimanas and is perhaps excessively fond of some unusual words like luculent But it's generally faithful and it would be a good first version to read if you have never read one If you are already familiar with the story you will almost certainly enjoy this take on itIt's in two volumes which are currently going for three dollars each on Kindle at The deal of the millennium

    A lucid racy and vivid interpretation of one of the greatest epic's Once you start you are compelled to read the next page; Truly UN putdown able stuff Hats off to Ramesh menon for undertaking this humongous effort and coming out with this adaptation of an already spellbinding epicVolume 1 covers the events before the war while volume 2 is uite astoundingly all about the 18 dayonly war The memorable ups and downs as you read through the battles stay with you forever For exampleAn indescribable thrill rises up from within as you read through the exploits of daredevil Abhimanyu all of 16 exploiting loopholes as well as keeping the enemies army and its much experienced leaders at bay all with a degree of panache and style that would have made his father burst with pride Alas the sad if inevitable conclusion to this tale as well as the deep introspective way in which either sides are portrayed after this seminal event is one of the high points of this bookThough i'm not sure of whether i would ever get to read and understand the book in it's original all encompassing avatar i would surely recommend this edition of the epic as the starting point

    At the outset of this review I must immediately admit that I am a big fan of The Mahabharata and that it is singularly my favorite story to read I do not say my favorite book because there is no one book on the tale In fact part of the reason why The Mahabharata remains as relevant and eternal today as it was all those 5000 years ago is because it can be interpreted any which way possible limited only by the experiences and perspectives of the authors and readers In that very sense there is no book and there is no one storyHundreds of authors the world over have interpreted The Mahabharata in their own spirit and millions of readers have found different tales characters and subplots to relate to often changing as they themselves grow up and experience new things and gain new perspectivesThe hallmark of any great story lies in the number of times it can adapt itself and be reinterpreted to suit the existing culture and prevalent views blending seamlessly into it while still maintaining its essence In that sense there is no story as vast as The Mahabharata nor as completeHaving said that the narration of the epic by Ramesh Menon is the 6th version of the tale that has crossed my hands Great authors like Kamala Subramaniam Devdutt Pattanaik Maggi Lidchi Grassi a French author Iravati Karve whose Yuganta was an absolute delight to read and study and Chitra Divakaruni The Palace of Illusions is possibly the only modern feminist retelling that I could appreciate notwithstanding the hundreds of clones that came after have adorned my desk or Kindle before himI make it a point to read the epic once a year not to see if the story is any different but to know whether I have changed in the last year The way I interpret the story tells me a lot about myselfWhile it is hard to separate the story from the book in most cases the intention here is not to review The Mahabharata itself but rather the interpretation of it by Mr Menon The story itself is perhaps the most well known one in India with deep roots in every facet of our culture and still used to justify and vilify actions It is also one of the most ambiguous stories known to man introducing us to shades of grey and destroying the concept of black and white characters and situations so much prominent in The Ramayana much before it became trendy to have ambiguity and fifty shades of grey in every story we tellEvidenced by the fact that no character in the epic right from Krishna and Yudhishtira to Duryodhana and Shakuni is purely good or evil with each using their own version and interpretation of Dharma to justify their actions and ultimately facing the conseuence of those actions Cause and Effect itself is a major theme throughout the epic with karma playing a big role in how the story pans out The Butterfly Effect defined much later plays itself out in practically every subplot in The Mahabharata with even the slightest actions having drastic conseuence sometimes immediately and sometimes lifetimes later Actions and decisions taken by multiple unrelated characters across space and time come together to have conseuences which cannot be imagined The importance of following the spirit of the law rather than the letter of the law is emphasized on every page all the stark because this is a uality we still have not imbuedGreat people like Bheeshma Drona and Karna had to die because they knew what Dharma wrote ages ago but forgot why it was written They followed without uestioning and when the uestion arose they had the wrong answerEven today we forget why a particular law custom or tradition is important and follow them blindly even as they stagnate rot and hold society back from progress The Mahabharata in its entirety ultimately asserts why Dharma must be fluid in order to allow progress in the right direction and why a stagnant Dharma inevitably becomes Adharma and what was once an engine becomes a shackle In other words Memetic evolution is as important as Genetic evolutionNeedless to say The Mahabharata due to all these many lessons none of which are very obvious nor are they immune to debate is a very complicated story Multiple characters cause conflict and each is justified in their own motives and destiny The definition of right and wrong good and evil becomes excruciatingly difficult and the only answer may be that it would be impossible to define them without the context which changes from character to character As such it takes an author of extraordinary skill to interpret the story coherently and present it so that the messages are as clear as possibleRamesh Menon has been inspired by Kamala Subramaniam as he states right off the bat Kamala Subramaniam’s I must state here remains my favorite version of the story given how balanced her approach was bringing out the ambiguity embedded in the tale with poise and elegance To write a story like this without bias is extremely difficult given how Krishna is considered a God and how the Pandavas and Kauravas have been immortalized as heroes and villains respectivelyMr Menon tries to take the same approach and does succeed in parts While he tries hard to be balanced there are places where the bias he holds towards Krishna and the Pandavas comes forth and the tendency to vilify the Kauravas shines through Yes the heroes and villains in the story are ultimately clear but they are not nearly as black and white as one would imagine The prime example of this would be Krishna himself the God who came to wipe out adharma in the world The fact that he himself uses treachery and adharma to do this is constantly justified because he is God and because it is his destinyWhile reading Kamala Subramaniam’s version one gets the impression that Krishna was an extraordinarily intelligent politician and kingmaker rather than a God who played the Pandavas much in the same way as Shakuni played the Kauravas to become the most powerful man in the empire He is subject to human failings and mistakes In Ramesh Menon’s version however he is constantly referred to as a God all knowing and practically infallible This serves to somewhat reduce the ambiguity of the story and makes the story much clearer hiding the faults of Yudhishtira and the virtues of DuryodhanaOne other gripe I had with the book was that it was truly inspired by Kamala Subramaniam’s version and does not really differ from the story she told There is nothing new Mr Menon brings to the table and one would rather read the original than the almost exact retelling presented here minus the ambiguity Moreover there are spelling errors to be found in the book at places which is unforgivable in this age of editors and proofreadersHowever the book written by Mr Menon is exhaustive enough that anyone reading the story for the first time would be introduced to most facets of the exceedingly complicated tale without preaching too much The author brings forward the apathy of war and the descent of the human race into decadence with an atmosphere of destiny and irrepressible fate with a sense of epic inevitability as we enter the Kaliyug and Adharma takes center stage Across 2 volumes and 1600 pages the complex story is presented with grandeur and all the splendor worthy of it In most cases I would want books to be short sweet and deep but for a story like this the length is than justified and in fact I’d say necessaryThe reader would be left to his own interpretation and that in my opinion is the crux of the story That every reader has the freedom to choose his own heroes his own villains his own dharma and his own treachery is the reason why The Mahabharata is as relevant as it is today as human beings continue to enact the same traits and cycles they did 5000 years agoThere is no clear message here and there are no clear guidelines The end sometimes justifies the means and the means must be justice themselves at other timesHowever one thing remains clear The Mahabharata is one of the most complete stories ever told encompassing every shade of human character of kindness apathy destruction and construction of human failings and eternal hope of revenge and forgiveness in its pages As it boasts everything which exists finds it place in the tale and what does not find its place does not exist To not read this story from a human perspective would be to rob yourself of something which could fundamentally change the way you look at life and how you interpret situationsIt is after all Ithihas

    There can be nothing timeless than The Mahabharata Ramesh Menon renders the Mahabharata with a distinct taste of the old art of story telling The Mahabharata contains the greatest characters and the greatest dialogues ever and is befittingly titled too After reading the Mahabharata one realizes that every story ever told is just borrowed from some sub plot of this great epic Even the villains in this great epic win your heart and the most inconseuential characters are so full of honorI am proud to belong to a country from where an epic like the Mahabharata was born


  6. says:

    The Mahabharata being a timeless classical tale of love power fratricide and politicsMenon has done a great job in translating it Being an abridged version it makes it easier for the reader to read it through like a novel skipping the heavier prologues A must read for the young reader to understand the Indian epics


  7. says:

    Writing this half way into the Vol 2If you are looking for a JRR Tolkien version of the Vyasa epic this is not the book This is an abridged version for the millennials to appreciate the richness of story play character building and moral ethics This book in a very simple way depicts the great epic as a singular threaded story It has succeeded in showing how Indian culture was totally moral and immoral at the same time with lofty price for values family and friendship You will definitely find all the important characters their struggle with morality twists and turns as suited for a great epic and enjoy the somber evening and a definite read for people reading about this for the first timeHowever the book fails to satisfy the affluent reader who knows the story very well and looks for all the nuances which was not easily accessible Some of the background stories are indeed explained especially in the Vol I however the Vol2 leans towards the recital of Bhagawad Gita and the gray areas of Shakuni's story and few others such as Barbarik are either mentioned on the offing or not there at allWould definitely give it a 35 out of 5 for the magnificent effort for even attempting this and turning into a page turner


  8. says:

    Well it took me like 27 hours 24 days to finish this but it was all worth it Written between 300 BC and 300 AD it is considered the greatest spiritual epic of all time The book largely concerns two groups of warring cousins symbolizing the fight between good and evil The modern retelling I read does a wonderful job of preserving the Indian spiritual vibe of the original but it is also written in a way the modern reader will understand The book deals very much with early developments of Hinduism and I found it was like entering a magical world full of heroes monsters gods and war Every fantasy novel every science fiction novel has been influenced by this text whether they know it or not You are completely immersed in another world that is so fantastic so magical it is incomprehensible it was written so long ago I am so glad I took the time to read this it is such an important basis for all literature This book kind of changed me as a person I just found it to be really spiritually inspirational and I'm sure I will keep coming back to it throughout my life


  9. says:

    A brilliant translation of an epic story that in my opinion has absolutely no parallel It has taken me than 4 months to read this book and its probably the most time i have ever taken but the sheer magnitude of the story the characters and the plot makes for very interesting reading The principles and the dharma on which the entire story is based is true to this era and it surprises me that we are not even half as spiritual or philosophical as our ancestors were Mahabharata is a saga of philosophy and there is hardly a topic in human life that is not touched in the book For people who love politics almost everything that a ruler a leader should be doing is also clearly mapped out in the end chapters of the book It'll need patience but the book is worth a read


  10. says:

    The fluid and accessible version of the Mahabharata is by an Indian journalist and novelist and as a result the account is like reading a novel I find that I can't wait to get back to it Even though it consists of two large volumes it is still an abridged version The long prologue has been omitted However it's a wonderful introduction to the story of the Pandavas Drapaudi and Krishna A great read
