Udayan: The Forgotten Pandava
Author: Rajendra Kher
Publisher: Platinum Press (Leadstart Publishing)
Inspired by the Brihatkatha that has been lost in the pages of the Indian History, Udayan is a story about the king Udayan- the descendant of the Pandavas. A peace lover by nature, king Udayan prefered to indulge in art and literature than fight wars and become a part of the bloodshed. Hence, soon the reins of the empire begin slipping from his grip. Foreshadowing the rise of another promising hero who would restore back the glory of the kingdom, this book narrates a tale that switches between the actions of the two protagonists.
The narrative is simple yet the superfluous descriptions often seem drab. Unless one is truly interested in mythology and legends that are hidden from the mainstream scriptures available in the public domain, one might not find this book intriguing. Nevertheless, the author’s research and effort are laudable.
Best wishes to the author!
