 "THE MAHABHARATA ENDURES AS THE GREAT EPIC OF INDIA. While Jaya is the story 

of the Pandavas, told from the perspective of the victors of Kurukshetra, Ajaya is the tale of the 

Kauravas, who were decimated to the last man. From the pen of the author who gave voice to 

Ravana in the national bestseller, ASURA, comes the riveting narrative which compels us to question 

the truth behind the Mahabharata. 


THE DARK AGE OF KALI IS RISING and every man and woman must choose between duty 

and conscience, honour and shame, life and death… 


      o     The Pandavas, banished to the forest following the disastrous games of dice, return 

             to Hastinapura. 

      o     Draupadi has vowed not to bind her hair till she washes it in the blood of the Kauravas. 

      o     Karna must choose between loyalty and gratitude, friend and Guru. 

      o     Aswathama undertakes a perilous mission to the mountains of Gandhara, in search of the 

             Evil One. 

      o     Kunti must decide between her firstborn and her other sons.

      o     Guru Drona has to stand with either his favourite disciple or his beloved son.

      o     Balarama, having failed to convince his brother about the adharma of violence, walks the 

             streets of Bharatavarsha, spreading the message of peace.

      o     Ekalavya is called to make the ultimate sacrifice to uphold a woman’s honour.

      o      Jara, the beggar, sings of Krishna’s love while his blind dog, Dharma, follows.

      o     Shakuni can almost see the realization of his dream to destroy India. 


As the Pandavas stake their claim to the Hastinapura throne, the Kaurava Crown Prince, Suyodhana, 

rises to challenge Krishna. As great minds debate dharma and adharma, power hungry men prepare 

for an apocalyptic war. The women, highborn and humble, helplessly watch the unfolding disaster 

with deep foreboding. And greedy merchants and unscrupulous priests lie in wait like vultures. 

Both sides know that beyond the agony and carnage the winner will take all. But even as gods 

conspire and men’s destinies unfold, a far greater truth awaits.


                                                                         *****
