About The Book

A prince born amidst all imaginable luxuries, the best fit to become the successor of the most famous clan on earth; the Kuru clan. But alas, fate had other plans in store! Separated from his father at three and reunited at sixteen, only to be thrown into the cruelest battle of humankind. A son, a husband, a brother, and above all a valiant warrior; the book depicts Abhimanyu's perspective and philosophies of love and war; of life and death.

Back of The Book

CHAKRAVYUH is a modern adaptation of the greatest epic ever written in the history of humankind; MAHABHARATA. This is a retelling of a part of the epic from the perspective of a young warrior who was descendant of Kuru dynasty; born to lead; but destiny had some other plans for him. A loyal son, a loving brother, a caring husband, a disciplined disciple and a true warrior defied all the odds to be decorated in history for many generations to come. His skills and intellect were no less than his forefathers, but he was not bound to the dogmas followed by his ancestors. His judgement of situations was his own, and he didn't follow the dynastic parlances. In many ways, he was ahead of his times and definitely more mature than his age.

When greed was at its epitome; materialistic desires lead to destruction of humility; the rules of Dharma were rewritten to benefit the selfish desires of just a group; A young boy defied all the odds and wrote a new chapter of his life, becoming immortal in our hearts. This is a story of a chosen warrior who was separated from his father at the age of three. This is a story of a boy, as handsome as sons of Ashwin brothers; as strong as the son of Vayu; as calm as son of Yama; and as skilled as the son of Indra. This is a story of the son of Subhadra and nephew of Krishna.

This is the story of Abhimanyu.

About The Author

Aniket S Sharma, native Indian, has keen interest in the mythological history of India. He believes in reflecting at the historical events and translate it per the modern era. His interest in understanding the great Indian epics has inspired him in retelling the stories. His idea of following the mythologies is to discuss the achievements of the characters and place them in the modern context. His thoughts of discovering the life from each chapter of history have helped him in identifying the deepest hidden meanings. His mantra of life is "Create Opportunity", and he believes, if we create new opportunities each passing day, it would be no less than achieving Nirvana."

He is also a part of Software Industry and invested more than a decade of his life in it, learning a new chapter every day, as he claims. His previous work was in the field of Business Analysis called "A Quick Reference to Business Analysis" where he added his experiments with the new stream in IT back then. The current book is his first experiment in translating the epic Mahabharata from a different perspective and with this he enters in a different genre. In this book, he attempts to take the reader to an unearthed but delightful voyage.

Introduction

LOVE, PASSION, DECEIT, ANGER, loyalty, betrayal, war, peace, luxury and austerity; these experiences are a part of every human life. Our life changes every moment, our thoughts change every second, some succumb to the miseries, and some become immortal. A young boy, born in luxury, descendant to a powerful lineage was separated from his father at the age of three. For thirteen years, he lived with his maternal relatives, learnt the lessons of life, controlled his wrath, and finally, when he met his father, alas, destiny had other plans. He was invited to the cruelest battle of humankind, fought to prevail justice and Dharma. This is the story of a son, a brother, a husband, a fighter, and an intellect. This is story of ABHIMANYU.

Abhimanyu, the son of Subhadra and Arjuna, nephew of Krishna, was born in a palace, lived the life of a prince, separated from his father but received the love of maternal uncles. He was a born warrior and was destined to become immortal. The story revolves around the protagonist, Abhimanyu and his presence in the battlefield for thirteen days. He speaks his mind to what he sees in the battlefield. His judgment of the situations is his own and he sees the world through his eyes. Though he follows the commands of his elders, but his vision is aligned with a different world. By the age of sixteen he has seen many folds of life and each fold has taught him many lessons. He is a learnt scholar albeit spending life in palace adapted to adversaries. The knowledge he gained in the abode of Krishna helps him in learning the insights of life on the battlefield. The palette of weapons, when paints the earth red, the lives when convert to a pile of mere dust and bones, the warriors when become just pieces of flesh, a young boy beating in midst of all odds writes a new chapter in the history for the future generations. He is fearless, he is valiant, but he is young. What he sees in the field, he evaluates as per his knowledge of world and desires. He is not restricted with the dogmas of Kshatriya dharma; neither is he bound by any vows. He represents a group with the ambition of prevailing justice and his presence in the field is a result of the glory he earned, the skills he cultivated. His eclectic vision evaluates the different episodes on the war field — the formation of the armies, the dependency on Arjuna, the trepidation of Yudhishthira, the anger of Krishna, and the loyalty of Drona. The readers will visualize the thirteen days of war through the eyes of Abhimanyu.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
