The Great Indian Novel
The Mahabharata meets modern Indian history in an intellectual roller coaster ride of a novel
In Shashi Tharoor’s satirical masterpiece, the story of the Mahabharata is retold as recent Indian history, and renowned political personalities begin to resemble characters from the Mahabharata?all of whom have a curious and ambiguous relationship with Draupadi Mokrasi (D. Mokrasi for short) . . .
Brimming with incisive wit and as enjoyable a read as it is cerebrally stimulating, The Great Indian Novel brilliantly retells reality as myth.
