This is the story of Bhima, the second son, the man who's always second in line, a story never adequately told until M.T. Vasudevan Nair conjured him up from the silences in Vyasa's narrative, the minute gaps that allowed conjectures about what must have happened during those intervals. MT's Bhima is a revelation. Lonely, eager to succeed, treated with a mixture of affection and contempt by his brothers - the other four Pandavas and with scorn and hatred by his Kourava cousins, Bhima battles incessantly with failure and disappointment, even as a child. He's adept at disguising his feelings and has an overwhelmingly intuitive understanding of everyone who crosses his path, an uncanny ability to know how others feel. A warrior without equal, he slays innumerable enemies during the Great War. However, all his moments of triumph, starting with the trials of skill he took part in as a young man, remain unrecognized and unrewarded. A whole new look at the greatest story ever told, the Mahabharata, MT's Bhima: Lone Warrior is a masterpiece of Indian literature.

Ritika Chhabra (justagirlhighonbooks) | 530 comments You mean part 6, right? The war is declared in part 6. Part 7 is where it actually happens.
