Mahabharatha, the second most famous epic of Hindu mythology has entertained, enlightened, and been a source of much thought and discussion for as long as the text has existed. It has been adapted into uncountable films, books, and TV shows. I remember how back in late ’80s the streets of the entire country would remain deserted on Sunday mornings because everyone was glued to their TV screens, watching B.R. Chopra’s Mahabharatha. The title song still remains one of my all-time favourites.
Lately, mythological fiction has also been a source of not just entertainment but also a change in society. Narratives like Palace of Illusions and now, Yudhishthira – The Unfallen Pandava, shed light on alternate points of view and attempt to answer a pertinent question – What went on in the minds of these characters who transformed the course of History?
So when I got the opportunity to host an excerpt from Readomania‘s latest release I jumped at it.
Written by Mallar Chatterjee and edited by my favourite Indrani Ganguly, Yudhisthira – The Unfallen Pandava is an ambitious imaginary narrative from Yudhisthira’s perspective. And judging from the below excerpt, it promises to be one hell of a read. Continue reading “An Excerpt from Yudhisthira-The Unfallen Pandava”
The best part about being in a community of active readers is that you keep getting introduced to new authors and books you didn’t previously know about.
Early last year, I attended a fun event organised by an innovative start-up, Let’s Barter, where I met lots of new people, played some fun games, and exchanged books with fellow bibliophiles! I got quite a few great books, like Eat Pray Love, and some brand new releases from Harper Collins (they had sponsored a few books).
I think around the same time I was battling with that Great Book Flood too. I am yet to get through my loot from such events and book sales but since I have lost the battle against these unseen (and very welcome) forces I have decided to give up the fight altogether. Which means the reformed reader in me is now hoarding books like never before! Continue reading “A Godsend for Bibliophiles: Books Barter”
Ever since I upgraded my website to a dotcom on WordPress , my previous pingbacks have all gone bad. Of course, since I also deleted with previous blog url too.
I expected the links to connect to the new url since it is supposed to do that. But I just discovered that that’s not actually happening. Which means I’ll be pulling my hair and the bad links out manually. And I don’t want to go bald so soon, so calling for help.
HELLLLPPPPPP!!!! In case if you come across any bad links, please bring it to my notice.
Thank you! God bless you! May Lord be with you! Peace be upon you! Okay, I think you get the sense of desperation here.
This just in 🙂 Please read and share and spread the news.
