This is the story of Bhima, the second son, always second in line -- a story never adequately told until one of India's finest writers conjured him up from the silences in Vyasa's narrative. M.T. Vasudevan Nair's Bhima is a revelation -- lonely, eager to succeed, treated with a mixture of affection and contempt by his Pandava brothers, and with scorn and hatred by his Kaurava cousins, Bhima battles incessantly with failure and disappointment. He is adept at disguising his feelings, but has an overwhelmingly intuitive understanding of everyone who crosses his path. A warrior without equal, he takes on the mighty Bakasura and Jarasandha, and ultimately Duryodhana, thus bringing the Great War to a close. However, all of Bhima's moments of triumph remain unrecognized and unrewarded. If his mother saw glory only in the skills of Arjuna and the wisdom of Yudhishtira, his beloved Draupadi cared only for the beauteous Arjuna.

Indien: Land der Götter, Tempel und Schlangenbeschwörer. Hier erwachen die Dämonen und Helden vergangener Zeiten zum Leben. Und mitten in ihren Kampf gerät ein ganz normaler Junge. Jetzt muss er die Welt retten. Dabei hat Ash Mistry darauf doch eigentlich gar keine Lust. Eigentlich will Ash nur möglichst schnell wieder nach England zurück. Das bunte, exotische Indien ist einfach nicht sein Ding - es ist viel zu heiß und chaotisch. Doch dann gerät er plötzlich in den Besitz einer alten Waffe der Götter und wird von Dämonen und dem bösen Magier Lord Savage gejagt. Das war es dann wohl erst einmal mit der Heimreise. Jetzt muss Ash nicht nur sein eigenes Leben retten, sondern ganz nebenbei auch noch die ganze Welt.

Power Women

Authors: Pushpa Kurup
Categories: Fiction
Type: BOOK - Published: 2021-09-13 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
The women in India's great epics compare favourably with the men Draupadi, the princess with five husbands and a fiery temperament; Uloopi, who abducted the mighty warrior Arjuna; Satyabhama, who fought alongside Krishna to kill the demon Narakasura; Sita, who dramatically descended into the bowels of the Earth rather than return to her suspicious husband; Satyavati, whose greed set the stage for the Kurukshetra War; or Savitri, who achieved the impossible without picking up a weapon. Pushpa Kurup brings their stories and many others in this brilliant compilation of the powerful and intriguing women of our mythology. What enriches this volume further is the inclusion of a few lesser-known but equally significant women, such as Unniyarcha, the heroine of the vadakkanpaatu of Malabar; Kannagi, whose fury destroyed the prosperous Pandya kingdom of Madurai; or Sati Devi and Amba, who immolated themselves in their bid to achieve their mission. From bhikkunis and sanyasinis to wild and wayward women, from daughters, wives, mothers and grandmothers to queens, warriors and scholars, the stories of these splendid women throw up many surprises and make for a fascinating read.
Many Mahābhāratas
Language: en
Pages: 462
Authors: Nell Shapiro Hawley, Sohini Sarah Pillai

Type: BOOK - Published: 2021-05-01 - Publisher: SUNY Press
A major contribution to the study of South Asian literature, offering a landmark view of Mahābhāata studies. Many Mahābhāratas is an introduction to the spectacular and long-lived diversity of Mahābhārata literature in South Asia. This diversity begins with the Sanskrit Mahābhārata, an early epic poem that narrates the events of a catastrophic fratricidal war. Along the way, it draws in nearly everything else in Hindu mythology, philosophy, and story literature. The magnitude of its scope and the relentless complexity of its worldview primed the Mahābhārata for uncountable tellings in South Asia and beyond. For two thousand years, the instinctive approach to the Mahābhārata has been not to consume it but to create it anew. The many Mahābhāratas of this book come from the first century to the twenty-first. They are composed in nine different languages—Apabhramsha, Bengali, English, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Sanskrit, Tamil, and Telugu. Early chapters illuminate themes of retelling within the Sanskrit Mahābhārata itself, demonstrating that the story’s propensity for regeneration emerges from within. The majority of the book, however, reaches far beyond the Sanskrit epic. Readers dive into classical dramas, premodern vernacular poems, regional performance traditions, commentaries, graphic novels, political essays, novels, and contemporary theater productions—all of them
