But the past is worth knowing and acknowledging.
मृत्युंजय / Mrityunjaya
He also ends up in trouble for lying to saint Durvasavu about his caste. On 18 SeptemberSawant died at the age of 62 mrityuniay cardiac arrest in Goa. IF you love mythology and wouldnt mind an encore of the story with a fresh narration and perspective,Mrityunjay is the book for you.
I can never compliment the author enough for presenting a story already known my all in a way that doesn't allow the reade Although this has been translated in many languages, something is always lost in the process and i have been lucky to read the original book.
Just like how a single movie 'Oru Vadakkan Veeragaadha' changed the people's outlook about 'Chandu', 'Karnan' is able to glorify Karna. The book is a absolute gem. A strong powerful indestructible force? Born powerful and to the Sun god, ridiculed by all and sundry he retained his nobility and took his secret to the grave.
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.

There are lot of morals to take away from this story. I can never compliment the author enough for presenting a story already known my all in a way that doesn't allow the reader to put down the book.
This is one book that would stay on my bookshelf forever. This was one my favourite books then. There are lot of morals to take away from this story.
That being said, the author manages to balance out the supernatural elements quite well and makes the overall narrative extremely readable. It took me 6 months to find a copy of this book here in mrituunjay US and finally had to ship it from India.
I am not sure how the English translation would work out what with all the rich flaming descriptions in Marathi. One of the best books I have ever read and I will ever read!
Karna was one man against the world and he emerges victorious through his death. And still I would say if you sawxnt lay your hands on this one, please do.
मृत्युंजय by Shivaji Sawant
Torn between wanting to stop Duryodhana and held back by Draupathi's earlier insult of him during her Swayamvar he finally makes the fatal decision of joining Duryodhana.
But none of the Pandavas ever make mrittyunjay attempt to engage him in any way, right from the time he was their fellow student, mrtyunjay he has no special feelings towards them and therefore pledges his allegiance to Duryodhana who at least seems to bother that he exists.

There is no justification for any of his conduct. It is borne out by his reactions to the relevation that he is Kunti's son. It is Yudhishtira himself who pawned Draupadi in the game of gambling. Adirath is a charioteer of King Dhritarashtra in the kingdom of Hastinapur. Even if you haven't read this book, even if your introduction to Karna is through the Mahabharata alone, you cannot help but sasant empathy for the eldest son of Kunti. If he had been so devious, he could very ahivaji have forced Karna to fight under Bheeshma during the first 10 days of the war, instead of agreeing with his decision.
As a feminist, the patriarchy was evident. Even though Duryodhana as the narrator tries to assume a more negative shade, by stating upfront that he only sought Karna because he always perceived him to be special and therefore useful, at some level, without even stating it, the narrative betrays his deep affection for Karna.
Even though Marathi is my mother tongue, I sawanf never studied it formally and therefore have a greater comfort level with reading English than Marathi. Refresh and try again. But Karna will not abandon Adhiratha or Radha.
