I like the writing style. Each character is portrayed with much charisma. Unlike “Yajnaseni” for which I had gone on a lengthy rant trip the women here are portrayed exactly as they should have been. Similarly, there is no great outpouring of affection when he realizes they are his brothers either. This book was translated in Hindi , English , Kannada , Gujarati , Malayalam and received numerous awards and accolades. Probably he was the one who was subjected to the most cruel injustice of them all. This book takes you through the tumultuous journey of Karna and you’ll ride it with him.

What is the purpose of this mantra if its only result is that it creates such ‘bastards’, or else mrityunjay shivaji sawant the mother into lifelong humiliation.

But a time comes when the dead have to speak too. View all 12 comments. Yes, it is Surya devta who is mentioned as Karna’s teacher in the book, because Drona is pre-occupied with teaching the Pandavas and Kshatriyas.

Mrityunjaya – Shivaji Sawant – Google Books

Graduation completed, had to leave IIT. The descriptions are so scintillating and shivaii mrityunjay shivaji sawant the reader is automatically drawn physically inside the story.


That being said this book is a work of genius. The end chapters of the book has left me with such an emptiness as the one that can be imagined after a war is over. He also ends up in trouble for lying to saint Durvasavu about his caste.

I am not sure how the English translation would mriytunjay out what with all the rich flaming descriptions in Marathi. The Mahabharata is an epic more complex than anyone can ever imagine.

I could feel mrityunjay shivaji sawant crying silently at the loss of Karna’s Kavach and Kundals. And even though his foster parents never explicitly tell mrityuniay that he is adopted, it is almost like he senses it from the beginning.

In he wrote a book Chhava based on Great Sambhaji Maharaj’s life. The Pandavas are not villains in his life.

मृत्युंजय by Shivaji Sawant

Arjun may now be his blood brother but that does not absolve him of the crime of having killed Karnas first born as well as his foster brother. I recommend every reader to read this one if you know Mahabharat. Even if you haven’t read this book, even mrityunjay shivaji sawant your introduction to Shivjai is zawant the Mahabharata alone, you cannot help but feel empathy for the eldest son of Kunti.

I am yet to come across an author who has such impeccable research about everything ranging from names and back stories of almost all characters involved, to the names of the food items, flora and fauna, musical instruments, regions and kingdoms smallest to largestmountain ranges, weapons used in the war, the rivers and their tributaries and the distance and time taken to travel from one place to another.

Some mrityunjay shivaji sawant are extremely thought provoking and it is quite evident throughout the book that the author, Mr. No trivia or quizzes yet. Letting go in this world for the glory of it- is it worth it? When Draupadi is stripped in the Hastinapur palace, Karna mrityunjay shivaji sawant the only one in Kaurava side to oppose it.

He suffers humiliation at every point from people for this. The books of Kunti and Krishna more than one for each are middlingly good, but rarely offer any great insight into either Karna or themselves. He does not have an equal relationship with him, Karna is always his inferior, but there is still a great attachment towards him, and genuine concern for his well being.

It is indeed very much a part of Mrittyunjay himself and he has a great attachment to what it signifies. Their wealthy and decadent lifestyle, which is over This is a tremendously well written book. These are the questions that arise in every ones mind.
