In this monthly column, Jai Arjun Singh scours through his bookshelves to pick out titles that have impacted him at various times in his life. A dining-table conversation with an elderly uncle when I was 10 or 11 years old. We were on the Mahabharata , and this long-retired army-man — all thick white eyebrows and clipped voice and military bearing — asked about my favourite character. His own preference was for the celibate Bheeshma, mentor to generations of kings despite having renounced the throne himself. Today, knowing how revered that self-denying yet controlling patriarch is among a certain demographic of conservative Indians and how many political leaders we have had who broadly fit this character type , this memory amuses me.

Qsn: How is Mrityunjay by Shivaji Sawant? I finished reading this book at the end of the October 31—10— It is one of the wonderful books I have ever read. The author of the book is Mr. Shivaji Sawant. He was a Marathi writer. He got Moorthi devi award for this masterpiece.
Moorthi devi award is only given to Indians and it is awarded for the best literature and research. Many editions were also published. Author did a lot of research to write this novel. Because Karna was defeated cunningly and died at the th day of war. So the novel ends there. Author wrote this novel very well. The way he described was awesome.
Totally nine units are there. Each and every unit is recited by the character itself. Karna speaks via four units. Duryodhana takes one unit. Queen mother Kunti devi owns one. And the last unit is taken by Lord Shri krishna. That is the awesome one. Unit 4- Duryodhana was criticised by the author in this unit. His selfishness was described here.
But in some places, Duryan was also felt sorry for Karna. Unit 5- Mother Vrushali spoke here. Atleast one should read the real Mahabharatha before reading this one for an unbiased opinion about Karna. It should be read meticulously. Because the twist will be released while reading the consecutive chapters. Here, I am sharing few of them. With my whip on my shoulder, and holding Vayujit by his throat-lash, I turned back, and started descending the slope.
