Ajaya-Epic of the Kaurava Clan -Book-1

Anand Neelakantan





The Mahabharata endures as the great epic of India. But while Jaya is the story of the Pandeva’s, told from the perspective of the victors of Kurukshetra; Ajayan is the narrative of the 'unconquerable' Karakas, who were decimated to the last man. At the heart of India's most powerful empire, a revolution is brewing. Bisham, the noble patriarch of Hastinapur, is struggling to maintain the unity of his empire.

On the throne sits Dhritarashtra, the blind King and his foreign born Queen Gandhari. In the shadow of the throne stands Kunti, the Dowager-Queen, burning with ambition to see her firstborn become the ruler, acknowledged by all. And in the wings: Parasuraman, the enigmatic Guru of the powerful Southern Confederate, bides his time to take over and impose his will from mountains to ocean. Kaleva, a young NiCad, yearns to break free of caste restrictions and become a warrior.

 Karna, son of a humble charioteer, travels to the South to study under the foremost Guru of the day and become the greatest archer in the land. Balarama, the charismatic leader of the Yadav as, dreams of building the perfect city by the sea and seeing his people prosperous and proud once more. Tashara, guerilla leader of the Nagasu, foments a revolution by the downtrodden as he lies in wait in the jungles of India, where survival is the only dharma.

Jira, the beggar and his blind dog Dharma, walk the dusty streets of India, witness to people and events far greater than they, as the Pandeva’s and the Karakas confront their searing destinies. Amidst the chaos, Prince Duryodhana, heir of Hastinapur, stands tall, determined to claim his birthright and act according to his conscience. He is the maker of his own destiny or so he believes. While in the corridors of the Hastinapur palace, a foreign Prince plots to destroy India. And the dice falls.
