Blazing midday finds Arjuna and Krishna battling not just the Kaurava army, but time himself. but to his very thought. Like steeds of light they flit, weaving dizzily through the enemy, while Arjuna’s arrows cut a hot path ahead of them. But unlike the Pandava and his dark sarathy, the white horses begin to tire. Their careen through two dense vyuhas has been long and hard and, nearing the end of Drona’s lotus, they turn sluggish

The Mahabharata is the more recent of India's two great epics, and by far the longer. First composed by the Maharishi Vyasa in verse, it has come down the centuries in the timeless oral tradition of guru and sishya, profoundly influencing the history, culture, and art of not only the Indian subcontinent but most of south-east Asia. At 100,000 couplets, it is seven times as long as the Iliad and the Odyssey combined: far and away the greatest recorded epic known to man.The Mahabharata is the very Book of Life: in its variety, majesty and, also, in its violence and tragedy. It has been said that nothing exists that cannot be found within the pages of this awesome legend. The epic describes a great war of some 5000 years ago, and the events that led to it. The war on Kurukshetra sees ten million warriors slain, brings the dwapara yuga to an end, and ushers in a new and sinister age: this present kali yuga, modern times.At the heart of the Mahabharata nestles the Bhagavad Gita, the Song of God. Senayor ubhayor madhye, between two teeming armies, Krishna expounds the eternal dharma to his warrior of light, Arjuna. At one level, all the restless action of the Mahabharata is a quest for the Gita and its sacred stillness. After the carnage, it is the Gita that survives, immortal lotus floating upon the dark waters of desolation: the final secret!With its magnificent cast of characters, human, demonic, and divine, and its riveting narrative, the Mahabharata continues to enchant readers and scholars the world over. This new rendering brings the epic to the contemporary reader in sparkling modern prose. It brings alive all the excitement, magic, and grandeur of the original-for our times.

OMG, Literally! Ramesh Menon makes me feel that I am there with the characters. He makes the story come alive in a compelling way. A page turner, I could not put it down. It invites reading over and over because it is so enjoyable.This one is broken into two more manageable parts, which makes my Kindle very happy.

Ramesh Menon does a fantastic job. This has become one of my favorite books. Volume 2 is just as good as Volume 1 of course, and this continues the story! This is on the same level as Lord of the Rings! Maybe better!

Reading this book has been a rare privilege. The storytelling is masterful. The Game of Thrones books and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy pale in comparison...Yes, it is that good!! I am completely absorbed and fully transported to a time out of mind that I feel myself witnessing the great War. The real treasure of course is the eternal teachings revealed within the story. The Mahabharata is inspiring and transformative. I am grateful to the author for this work of art.

An excellent version of the epic. The Mahabharata is retold expertly by Menon in gripping prose that rivals the very best fantasy novel. Condensing the Mahabharata into 2 volumes without losing it's true essence is no mean feat. The battle scenes themselves, which accounts for a majority of Volume 2, have great cadence with Bheeshma's death, Abhimanyu's sacrifice, the story of Arjuna's revenge on Jayadratha, and Karna's final hours all making for unforgettable moments. Sometimes the writing can get repetitive when describing the general melee of battle and the final few chapters linger longer than they should, but all that is forgiven in the face of the sheer scope of the greatest epic known to man.

I attempted to read the Mahabharata in a couple other translations and just couldn't. I can't speak to how authentic or close to the original this translation is. However, I did find it to be an enjoyable read.

There is no friend as dharma and understanding it through the Mahabharata us the best gift we can receive in this life .... Thank you for this life changing text
Having read various versions of Mahabharat from childhood, i came across Ramesh Menon's Modern Rendering through some excerpts in the erstwhile Tehelka Tabloid. From that time i wanted to read it. I got the kindle version and read it non-stop after work hours. It is so well-written, captivating, easy-flowing, detailed and simply superb. I thank Mr.Menon for his excellent work and i am glad i spent the money on this book. 5 Stars- no doubt
