THE MAHABHARATA A Modern Rendering by Ramesh Menon

Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. There is a new translation out there and if you want the complete version you owe it to yourself to try out both of these.

I have the first volume of both this one and the new translation. Ramesh Menon is not the author nor does he claim to be -- he is the 'team leader' of the rewrite team. One of the advantages of this is that they have no intention of 'reinventing the wheel' and, in theory at least, they can focus on making the story understandable.

And that is a big task. No, it begins with the Great grandson of the main characters This fellow, it seems, had a major grudge against the Nagas who are both snakes and human snakes and humans and had his Brahmans preforming a ritual that would magically, or so it seems dump the Nagas into a big fire which was actually the Deva Agni who had a taste for such things Only a half Deva Naga fellow shows up and explains why this the burning ritual business is not deserved and not a good idea.

Only that leads to a few other questions and he has to loop back a bit and tell the short version of the story a couple of times.

And then And yes, this is confusing -- what I've said as well as the story itself -- but my point is that the complete Mahabharata is NOT the place to begin. Once you 'get it' it kinda So, begin with one of the retellings. My suggestions follow: Best to begin with Jaya by Devutt Pattanaik.

It's a bit under pages and has a lot of nice line drawings. Most important: You find out relatively painlessly why Arjuna and the gang all seem to have several names key idea: You also get a bit of background to the culture where our heroes wander hither and thither.

And then it's time to dive into an abbreviated version of the story. My favorite: A Modern Rendering by Ramesh Menon yes, the same fellow Get the 2 volume version or the one for Kindle if you prefer I have both It's about pages a bit more actually , but it covers the story in enough detail so that none of the weird or sexy nothing really blushable parts are omitted.

The violence is there, of course, but I didn't feel my nose rubbed in it so to speak.

And when you get through these THEN this volume is the next step assuming you are a glutton for I'm going through it a few pages a night before bed is my favorite time and figure that I will have the whole story done in a decade or so. But then, what's the hurry The new translation is by an accountant who did it in his spare time as best I can determine.

I'm sure it's good, but we have to pick and choose in this world and for me Maybe I'll read the new translation in a decade or so when I've finished all these volumes One person found this helpful.

Hardcover Verified Purchase. I am loving this.

The Mahabharata: A Modern Rendering, Vol 1

I love all the back stories. It's easy to read and I can't wait for the other volumes to come out. Thank you thank you thank you for translating this from the Ganguli edition. This is on the same level as Lord of the Rings!

Maybe better! Ramesh Menon does a fantastic job.

This has become one of my favorite books. Volume 2 is just as good as Volume 1 of course, and this continues the story! I am completely absorbed and fully transported Reading this book has been a rare privilege. The storytelling is masterful. Yes, it is that good!! I am completely absorbed and fully transported to a time out of mind that I feel myself witnessing the great War.

The real treasure of course is the eternal teachings revealed within the story. The Mahabharata is inspiring and transformative.

I am grateful to the author for this work of art. One person found this helpful. An excellent version of the epic. The Mahabharata is retold expertly by Menon in gripping prose that rivals the very best fantasy novel.

Condensing the Mahabharata into 2 volumes without losing it's true essence is no mean feat. The battle scenes themselves, which accounts for a majority of Volume 2, have great cadence with Bheeshma's death, Abhimanyu's sacrifice, the story of Arjuna's revenge on Jayadratha, and Karna's final hours all making for unforgettable moments.

Sometimes the writing can get repetitive when describing the general melee of battle and the final few chapters linger longer than they should, but all that is forgiven in the face of the sheer scope of the greatest epic known to man. A wealth of detail in stirring language. I have read many versions of the Mahabharata since my childhood. Reading this version brought back many memories and deeply stirred me. For me it has a ring o truth.. I attempted to read the Mahabharata in a couple other translations and just couldn't.

I can't speak to how authentic or close to the original this translation is. However, I did find it to be an enjoyable read.

Having read various versions of Mahabharat from childhood, i came across Ramesh Menon's Modern Rendering through some excerpts in the erstwhile Tehelka Tabloid. From that time i wanted to read it. I got the kindle version and read it non-stop after work hours.

It is so well-written, captivating, easy-flowing, detailed and simply superb. I thank Mr. Menon for his excellent work and i am glad i spent the money on this book. See all 28 reviews.
