The Great Indian Novel

Posted on

There are some books which make you feel like life was incomplete until you read them… you wonder how you went through life without delving into those pages… how you can have a library and not stock this gem.

TGIN is one such book. I am amazed… such imagination, humor, writing skills… very few writers possess these traits. I wish I could write like that. If I was asked for one boon I would wish to write like Shashi Tharoor.
This book is about Mahabharta and Modern Indian history. The characters of the epic become synonymous to the politicians in freedom movement and later period. So… Bhishma is Gandhi…. Karna is Jinnah… Duryodhan is Indira Gandhi… Pandavas are Congressmen… so on and so forth.
Worth a read.
