As a feminist, the patriarchy was evident. Shivaji Sawant has put colossal effort to ensure he doesn’t leave us with a single question. I just finish the book I get very emotional at end. IF you love mythology and wouldnt mind an encore of the story with a fresh narration and perspective,Mrityunjay is the book for you. But he rarely opens up his innermost feelings to even them. I must start off by admitting that this review may be extremely biased. Now here comes the main part, Being the sutaputra Guru Drona does not accept him as his disciple.

Krishna’s monologue too is pretty much the usual one you come to expect. It’s not any great happiness or anger that he feels towards Kunti.

Consider it a mrityunajy or a piece of history, Mahabharat remains relevant to all ages and society. Sawant depicts an uncanny similarity between Krishna and Karna and hints at a mystic link between them, investing his protagonist with a more-than-human aura to offset the un-heroic and even unmanly acts which mar this tremendously complex and utterly fascinating creating of Vyasa.

Mrityujaya was translated in many other languages. It is on par with Parva. Yayati Hindi by Vishnu S. Want to Share this?: Mrityunjay means the one who conquers death and truly Karna does.

Biased by the fact that I mrityjnjay the Mahabharata the best epic ever! Ironically it is revealed later that Draupathi did not ask for his help since she was already regretting her insult of Karna at her Swayamvar and did not feel worthy of his assistance. I realized to do this heinous crime would be a sure undoing of the philosophy of this book, the purpose of it would have been defeated.


As MT Vasudevan Nair thinks, in the age of mortals, this is mrltyunjay the act of having an illicit child, and getting rid of him in the river. He was born in a small farmer family of Ajara village in Kolhapur district in Maharashtra.

We therefore do not really have a clue as to whether he has any brotherly feelings when he is fighting them. This page was last edited on 29 Septemberat mmrityunjay One of the best books I have ever read and I will ever read! In fact in shivajk places, he conveys a deep respect for them, for the way they survived Varanavrata, for the way they transformed Khandivaprastha.

These are interspersed with a book each from the lips of his unwed mother Kunti, Duryodhana who considers Karna his mainstayShon Shatruntapa, his foster-brother, who here-worships himhis wife Vrishali to whom he is like a god and, last of all, Krishna.

Karna is part of the system which mrityujnay accepted the caste system for whatever it is. Lists with This Book.

Best suited for those readers who are interested in the vivid stories of Indian mythology, Mrityunjaya is an epic book. Very poor quality paper.


It has a complex and rich plot, with multiple story lines taking place.

The fascinating thing about the book is it no only gives Karna’s view but also that of his brother Shon, Duryodhan, his Wife and finally Shri Krishna. 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. Unfortunately, I have been able to read both these books shivzji as translations, and somewhere that does influence the reading experience.

मृत्युंजय by Shivaji Sawant

This is an autobiography of Karna from Mahabharat written y Shivaji Sawant. This book will remain my mrityunjzy in life. Shivaji SawantMarathi. Karna’s relationship with the Pandavas is also quite realistic.
