review രണ്ടാമൂഴം M.T. Vasudevan Nair × 5 Free read review Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × M.T. Vasudevan Nair Others feel A warrior without eual he slays innumerable enemies during the Great War However all his moments of triumph starting with the trials of skill he took part in as a young man remain unrecognized and unrewarded A whole new look at the greatest story ever told the Mahabharata MT's Bhima Lone Warrior is a masterpiece of Indian literature. This one offers an interesting take The entire Mahabharata is narrated by Bhima It is curious how the author has interpreted the feelings of Bhima as he is shown to live in the shadows of Arjuna I also like it that the character is shown to be unburdened by thinking and lives an almost instinctive life It is also interesting how the author weaves in narratives around lesser known characters like Hidimbi Top notch book for me

review രണ്ടാമൂഴം M.T. Vasudevan Nair × 5 Free read review Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × M.T. Vasudevan Nair Ixture of affection and contempt by his brothers the other four Pandavas and with scorn and hatred by his Kourava cousins Bhima battles incessantly with failure and disappointment even as a child He's adept at disguising his feelings and has an overwhelmingly intuitive understanding of everyone who crosses his path an uncanny ability to know how. Every time I read a well written version of the Mahabharata I respect the original epic even How many works can lay claim to so many renditions centuries after the original version As for this version what does it say of an author when he can mesmerise the reader with a story that one has been hearing since childhood As the title suggests Bhima is the protagonist and the story is told from his perspective MT does not try to take on the much larger canvas of the Mahabharata and instead focuses on keeping the narrative around Bhima That is what makes this uniue The story is told in flashback mode from the final journey Between the eldest Yudhishtira whose kingship is a focus and the warrior Arjuna whose valour is a key element of the epic is Bhima who annihilated each of the Kauravas but who is still largely a footnote in the epic Through the book many a character refers to him as the blockhead and do not even begin to understand his sensitive side Arjuna being a key exception Indeed it would seem that only Arjuna Draupadi Dhritarashtra and Dhrishtadyumna respect the fierce warrior that Bhima is Bhima also sacrifices a lot of his relationships for his brothers and is not able to be the husband and father he might have wanted to be In this context there is a superbly nuanced sub narrative of casteism that runs in parallel It is also interesting how he plays down many of his exploits as the exaggeration of bards and actually many of the events in the Mahabharata are underplayed or completely non existent Krishna s intervention while Draupadi was being humiliated by the Kauravas in this version On the flip side the tension between the brothers Yudhishtira Bhima and Yudhishtira Arjuna is a key component here Yudhishtira is largely shown as someone who uses Dharma as a shield for his ineptitude Kunti s political astuteness compensates a lot for itThere are many such alternate explanations and perspectives like the Saugandhika flower episode that add to this version s uniueness The last few pages which offer uite a few revelations and the epilogue are worth a mention too I have not read the original Malayalam book I plan to so I cannot comment on the translation but the language is simple yet elouent and that played a large role in making this book a thoroughly enjoyable read Let Sleeping Dogs Lie yet elouent and that played a large role in making this book a thoroughly enjoyable read

review രണ്ടാമൂഴം M.T. Vasudevan Nair × 5 Free read review Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × M.T. Vasudevan Nair This is the story of Bhima the second son the man who's always second in line a story never adeuately told until MT Vasudevan Nair conjured him up from the silences in Vyasa's narrative the minute gaps that allowed conjectures about what must have happened during those intervals MT's Bhima is a revelation Lonely eager to succeed treated with a m. MTVasudevan Nair or MT as he is lovingly known to us Malayalees a doyen in the field of Malayalam literature and a trendsetting scriptwriter for Malayalam movies has penned this wonderful novel the Mahabharatha epic seen through the eyes of Bhima the second of the Pandava brothers MT is known for his portrayal of the unsung hero both in literature and movies Most of his protagonists are vehicles for the frustrations he suffered as a young man and Bhima is no different Always destined to be second or take the Second Turn Randam Oozham in Malayalam which incidentally gives the novel its title to his weak elder brother Yudhishtira in seniority and younger brother Arjuna in fame and popularity Bhima is not given his due as the main architect of the Pandava victory over their cousins Kauravas in the Kurukshetra warThough MT twists the story to his own ends in many places he takes a lot of poetic license with epics and legends the dreamily poetic language and the heartfelt angst of Bhima makes this an exemplary work of fiction You can get lost in the beauty of the Malayalam language but then that is the characteristic of most of MT s works
