"Karan vir Oberoi, a real-estate magnate living in New York has recurrent dreams of someone that looks like an ancient warrior clad in golden armour adorning golden earrings. He feels a deep bond with the warrior but the dreams remain a mystery to him. After miraculously surviving an assassination attempt, Oberoi is determined to seek answers. His quest for truth leads him back to his homeland India where his true destiny awaits him.

Karna, the legendary hero from the Mahabharata is considered as one of the most valiant and generous kings of his era. He de๏ฌed social customs and traditions to achieve immortal glory by his virtues and skills. He became a king and trusted friend of Duroyadhana - the crown prince of Hastinapur.

Embark on a journey with Oberoi as the two worlds blend and as he seeks the answer to his existence.

Will history repeat itself or will Oberoi choose to venture into an uncharted territory? Unravel the mystery. Read the legend!

The Sixth โ€” The legend of Karna is a masterpiece in storytelling by Karan Vir Arora โ€” an Award winning CEO/Creative Director Vimanika Comics. He ushers us not only into his passionate research of fifteen years but the grandeur of a forgotten era, and presents before us a completely new and unexplored facets of Kama in his debut novel and the rumoured bestseller."

Introduction:

Mahabharata is one of the interesting epics in the Indian mythology. Every character of this epic is notable; one of them is Karna who is the greatest interest among the writers. I always look forward reading Mahabharata and this is the sole reason I accepted reviewing this book. I would like to thanks the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ๐Ÿ™‚

Plot summary:

This book narrates a story of Karan Vir Oberoi, a renowned real-estate tycoon based in New York. He frequently gets nightmare depicting some ancient warrior in golden earring and armor. Trying to brush it off, he gets curious to know who this person is.

During all this, he miraculously survived an attack and becomes more determined to find the answers. Searching for answers, he comes to India and fell Dรฉjร  vu at various circumstances.

On the other hand, the author has narrated the tale of Karna. Who is a fierce warrior, the martial-arts expert and generous king of Anga. The author has beautifully narrated the birth of Karna, his childhood and how he struggled hard to prove his ability. In short, the author has retold the story from the point of view of Karna.

Presently, Karan is unconscious. Is there any similarity between these past and present events? This book travels to solve the mystery.

Writing style:

The language is easy and narration is smooth which helps to finish this book in two sittings.

My perception:

This book is good for those who donโ€™t know Mahabharataโ€™s story and wanted to read more about Karna. The author wanted to link between Karan and Karnaโ€™s story, but I didnโ€™t find it impressive. The author has mostly written about Karna leaving me to think what follows Karan. A sequel to this book is coming, but the author should have ended this book on an interesting note which doesnโ€™t happen. The dedication and introduction could have been shorter giving more space to the story. The only interesting part in this book is to read about Karna and his voice. The sketches are also good. I think this book could have been more interesting if the author has written equally about Karan too. If you love Mahabharata and want to read about Karna then you can give it a read.

Grab a copy of this book from here,ย 

Until next time, Keep reading ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Love is a feeling which cannot be expressed in the words. From many years, poets and writers are penning about this. Over the time, the definition of love changed. If we see the present situation then there are very few people who love each other unconditionally.ย  Living in the modern era when the other things take importance, do we have time to explore and understand love? The author of this book tried to give us some influential love sutra through the various stories. Thank you so much dear author for giving me a chance to read and review your debut work. ๐Ÿ˜Š

First of all, I would like to thank the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first thing which attracts the readers is the enchanting book cover, adorned with magenta colour and the palm of Buddha. This book cover can attract even a non-reader. After reading the blurb and genre, I was quite skeptical about this book but to my surprise, it turned out to be one of best non-fiction books of this year. .

I am writing a post after a long time, this month was not good for me. There were so many family emergencies. My fiance was sick and frequently admitted to the hospital. We have lost one of our close relatives. ๐Ÿ™ Overall, this month was very sad and despite being a month of Diwali it didnโ€™t go well. Only the good news is that I joined my new job and I am very much happy with my work, team, and company. Due to all these, my mind was totally occupied and reading totally got sidelined. I able to complete just 4 books, among them, two were small reads.
