About the Book: Ajaya
THE MAHABHARATA ENDURES AS THE GREAT EPIC OF INDIA. Every Indian has grown up
conditioned to the view that the Pandavas were virtuous and wronged; and the
Kauravas were manipulative and evil. On a visit to Malanada Temple, Kerala,
national bestselling author of ASURA, Anand Neelakantan, discovered the temple
deity to be none other than Duryodhanan, the ostensible villain of the
Mahabharata. This astonishing discovery prompted him to delve deep into the
narrative of the defeated Crown Prince of Hastinapura, and the Kaurava clan.
Ajaya challenges established views and compels us to think again. The book is
all about the power of perception.
