SUMMARY രണ്ടാമൂഴം

രണ്ടാമൂഴം

M.T. Vasudevan Nair º 1 REVIEW REVIEW » രണ്ടാമൂഴം Others feel A warrior without eual he slays innumerable enemies during the Great War However all his moments of triumph starting with the trials of skill he took part in as a young man remain unrecognized and unrewarded A whole new look at the greatest story ever told the Mahabharata MT's Bhima Lone Warrior is a masterpiece of Indian literature. There are so many interpretations and translations on Mahabharatha and Ramayana world wide Every new translation adds something to the original story This particular novel foregrounds the Mahabharatha story from the point of view of the real hero Bhima There is nothing unusual in looking into that epic from that angle In fact it is not the first time that one literary work has been subjected to reinterpret or renarrate from the point of view of some other characters from the same novel Examples are the novel which comes out based Bertha Mason s experience who was a minor charecter in Jane Eyre Such events are common in literary world But the thing is that MT is dared enough to discard the divinely figures in Mahabharath Krishna is just a clever king who knows good diplomacy and wants the help of Pandavas to kill Jarasandha Similar way none of the five Pandavas are the heirs of gods This would be the only thing I could find different in this novel from other narratives

M.T. Vasudevan Nair º 1 REVIEW REVIEW » രണ്ടാമൂഴം This is the story of Bhima the second son the man who's always second in line a story never adeuately told until MT Vasudevan Nair conjured him up from the silences in Vyasa's narrative the minute gaps that allowed conjectures about what must have happened during those intervals MT's Bhima is a revelation Lonely eager to succeed treated with a m. MTVasudevan Nair or MT as he is lovingly known to us Malayalees a doyen in the field of Malayalam literature and a trendsetting scriptwriter for Malayalam movies has penned this wonderful novel the Mahabharatha epic seen through the eyes of Bhima the second of the Pandava brothers MT is known for his portrayal of the unsung hero both in literature and movies Most of his protagonists are vehicles for the frustrations he suffered as a young man and Bhima is no different Always destined to be second or take the Second Turn Randam Oozham in Malayalam which incidentally gives the novel its title to his weak elder brother Yudhishtira in seniority and younger brother Arjuna in fame and popularity Bhima is not given his due as the main architect of the Pandava victory over their cousins Kauravas in the Kurukshetra warThough MT twists the story to his own ends in many places he takes a lot of poetic license with epics and legends the dreamily poetic language and the heartfelt angst of Bhima makes this an exemplary work of fiction You can get lost in the beauty of the Malayalam language but then that is the characteristic of most of MT s works

M.T. Vasudevan Nair º 1 REVIEW REVIEW » രണ്ടാമൂഴം Ixture of affection and contempt by his brothers the other four Pandavas and with scorn and hatred by his Kourava cousins Bhima battles incessantly with failure and disappointment even as a child He's adept at disguising his feelings and has an overwhelmingly intuitive understanding of everyone who crosses his path an uncanny ability to know how. the revolutionary thinker in me the one who uestions every single myth and superhero story fed to me while being respectful to the traditions this book brings it all back and yes in a very tight thrillerfor those who love mythologyhistory and good stories this is a must read i don t have to say anything and for the portrayal of bhimasena I feel I found something I was searching for the human side of the epic with many parts I was hoping might be included in the way I wanted but many that didn t mention many things I wanted to read about I guess those were not added since MT wouldn t or couldn t include something without proper researchas per the epilogue the deep research is very evidentoverall a great experience for me a teetotaler in malayalam literature struggling to mouth many of the words and usages I did manage to fight through I must admit that the language was uite easy considering the epic proportions of the content involvedso many characters remain in my mind receiving my appreciation hatred apathy or disgust a wonderful mystical work of literature it is no doubt about it No wonder many people swear by it though I am detecting this impulse so late

Vasudevan Nair REVIEW » രണ്ടാമൂഴം Every time I read a well written version of the Mahabharata I respect the original epic even How many works can lay claim to so many renditions centuries after the original version? As for this version what does it say of an author when he can mesmerise the reader with a story that one has been hearing since childhood? As the title suggests Bhima is the protagonist and the story is told from his perspective MT does no

    REVIEW » രണ്ടാമൂഴം If there's one thing I've realised after reading MTVasudevan Nair's Randamoozham English translation by Gita Krishnankutty is that there is no one interpretation of the Mahabharata There have been numerous re tellings so far from the PoV of so many characters and yet every time I read it I come away with a different feeling and a different understanding of the characters Like MT says in the Epilogue the credit
