About the book-
The war is over, but the impact of the war isn’t.
The Great war of Mahabharata and the stories surrounding it has been a real inspiration to every Indian. Sadly, people are losing their interest in Mythology and the teachings in Mahabharata and Ramayana are also eroding from our lives.
A book like Ashwatthama’s Redemption jolted me back to the days when my grandmother used to recite the stories of the great epics. Mahabharata also known as the longest epic in our world has been my inspiration since childhood. One of those interesting events of Mahabharata was Krishna’s cursing of Ashwatthama till eternity. An eternal life with diseases and bruises. A result of the great sin that Ashwatthama committed by trying to destroy the Pandava lineage.
Gunjan Porwal, picks up the story several years after the great war fictionalizing Ashwatthama’s life after the Kurukshetra war.
He delved into the pages of the great epic to find references and create an enthralling storyline about the life of Dronacharya’s son and the rise of Dandak, one of the most formidable Asura.
Every page is laced with mystery and suspense. The plot is excellent and beautifully crafted to keep the readers hooked and craving for more.
Everybody deserves a closure. So did Ashwatthama. Gunjan Porwal, found a fantastic way to answer the million dollar question every reader of Mahabharata had…Is Ashwatthama still alive? Walking on this earth, doomed till eternity?
I’m hoping to find out more about this in the next book of this series.
