's review

it was amazing

First of all, thanks a lot Dr.Shinde for breaking recent proclivity of glorifying villains & vilifying heroes.I fully agreed with sentence in preface of the book that; "The Central theme can never belong to anyone else but the Hero".

Arjun,Draupadi & Krishn : The Missile,The Trajectory & The Vision.Dr.Shinde beautifully portrayed about this concept.

Specific chapters which I found more interesting are;
-The Fish & Two Baits(Marvelous narration of Draupadi's swayamvar with ornaments of words)
-The Defeated Victors(Draupadi's Agony & Arjun's Chagrin)
-A Friend Regained(Draupadi & Krishn's mysterious prediction on Yudhisthira's behavior)
-Savyasachi & His Fragrant Flame(Draupadi's pivotal role in Arjuna's ambidexterity, using Eklavya's story as a turning point)
-Hastinapur Disrobed(Arjuna's bravery,idealism,humanity & his reluctance)
-The Finality of Doom(Finality of doom in karn's eyes)
-An Exquisite Torture(Arjun's unexpected & tough questions directed to Mata Kunti.They highlight his transition to calm,assured confidence & make the reader Rethink many existing beliefs)
-Whys and Why Notes:Exploring Myths(Myths of Karna, Shikhandi, Sanjay, Shalya & Role of Krishna in lives of Bhima & Arjun are based on in-depth research and apt references.)...

Cover of the book is very attractive & that picture describe more than words about book.Dr.Shinde's style of writing is marvelous & intriguing.Such an amazing flawless writing!We find deep insightful worthy Quotes like;

"Success is more difficult to handle than failure."
"Some things in life are just not a coincidence."
"Be careful of what you wish for,you may get it."
"Destiny,however,has its own ways to balance karma."
"Pain should never be the ruling force in life."
"Goodness is an asset - but if you allow it to be exploited, it is a liability.” etc...

Dr.Shinde's aspect "This book is my homage to Arjun's greatness" is completely fulfilled by this book.The 1st person narration makes the reader live every emotion, angst, pain,joy & passion in lives of Arjun-Draupadi.

Overall, A MUST Read & BUY without a doubt!
