In fact, same truth has got different shades for different people. And we miss the real meaning among these versions. The purest form always remains imperceivable! I don't know what exactly makes this book my all time favourite. It has got a rare grace that permeates the words. View all 6 comments. Mar 06, Varun rated it it was amazing. Definitely recommended for people who like to read Mahabharat related books and those who loved "Randamoozham" and "Bharathaparyadanam".

The story flows in two threads - one about Karna and the other about Draupadi. Karna portion is mainly depicted as flashbacks and stays true to Mahabharat while Draupadi's portion has authors own interpretations and extrapolations. View 2 comments. May 20, Arun Divakar rated it really liked it.

In an epic filled to the brim with complex and interesting characters, most writers take a fancy to Karna. The antihero who was a master of warfare, pupil of the legendary Parashurama and a brother-in-arms of the mighty Duryodhana and yet shunned to a life of ignominy, neglect and shame.

There is so much meat that an imaginative writer can dig out of from his life of complexities, contradictions, valour and tragedy. Note : Ini njan urangatte translates into - Now let me sleep. Jul 26, Sandeep Gopalakrishnan rated it it was amazing.

Amazing Piece of work Life of karna explained through the eyes of Droupathi,dharmaputhra Yudhishtira It brings a new Perspective of Mahabharatha especially life of karna and Droupathi A must read for all. Sep 13, Rebecca rated it really liked it Shelves: indian-challenge , malayalam , indian.

Though the old Malayalam with high funda words made it a tough read the story and the philosophy was awesome.. The story is told with justice to Vyasa's Mahabharata. Karna's life is narrated in flasbacks to Draupadi through the memories of various people including KundiDevi, Krishna and Satyaki. It is about Draupadi's Life as much as Karna's.

I especially liked the part where Draupadi reflects that the Dharma of her husbands did not prevent them from killing Ashwathama, Duryodhana Brilliant I especially liked the part where Draupadi reflects that the Dharma of her husbands did not prevent them from killing Ashwathama, Duryodhana and even Karna by deciet whereas the same Dharma had tied their hands when she Draupadi was dragged semi nude to the court by Dushaasana.

Jan 22, Manju P rated it it was amazing Shelves: books. One of the best book I have read. Yes, it's about karna. Karna is the main character in this book, but Draupadi is also an important character. I will have to read this book again to understand the whole meaning. Many times I badly wanted to check the meaning of the words, but as I didn't have one I had to guess the meaning.

Yes, I know it's my mother tongue, but I found so many new words in this book. There are so many instances where the author has clearly stated how fate is unfair with human. Ye One of the best book I have read. Yes, fate is unfair with us. Such was the case with karna and draupadi. After reading this book, in my mind karna has become the hero. Before it arjuna and bhima. Bhima still holds his place Feb 14, Geetha rated it really liked it. Must read for everyone who likes the character of Karna in Mahabharata.

The story is told from Draupadi s perspective but the hero of the novel is karnan. Any mythology lover will like this for sure. Aug 24, Bharathwaj rated it really liked it. What can I say about the Mahabharata! The Epic of all epics. Probably my favourite epic and one that has shaped my world view.

So, when I spotted this book at the book fair this year, I promptly bought it. I really envy those who got to read this in Malayalam. The Tamil translation is superlative, but it hints at the richness of the original.

The story starts on the last day of the bloody war whe What can I say about the Mahabharata! Draupadi witnesses the fire that consumes her five children and her brother along with the entire Pandava army. Yudhishtira realizes that they have killed Karna, their elder brother, and is enveloped in self-pity and grief. What follows is a grim, brooding philosophical musing on the purpose of life. Predominantly told through flashbacks, the story slowly fleshes out the story of the tragic hero Karna.

The episodes are all well known, having soaked into the collective consciousness through the years of oral, written and visual media. But what sets the novel apart is the remarkable way in which Karna grows in the eyes of Draupadi, throughout the novel. From a petty man, who is envious of the Pandavas, to a hero, who even though abused and vilified throughout his life, sacrifices himself for the sake of honour and friendship. This book is a treat for anyone who loves the Mahabharata.

It is also available in English. I am smitten. Nov 04, Prasanth Menon rated it it was amazing. One of the best books based on Mahabharata which I read. This stands equal to, if not better than, Randamoozham by M. The novel narrates the incidents after the Kurukshetra war has ended. Pandavas come to know that Karna, slain by Arjuna, was their own elder brother, who was the right heir to the throne. From the depths of their sadness, Yudhistira and Draupati recall some incidents involving him and some, they get to know from others like Sanjaya, Krishna etc.

The image of Karna they had in t One of the best books based on Mahabharata which I read. The image of Karna they had in their mind as their sworn enemy turns slowly into the image of a hero because of whose kindness, four of the Pandava brothers are still alive.


The Vayalar Award won novel “Ini njan urangatte’ was written by:

This edition of renowned Malayalam novelist P. While the book retains the original theme and underlying atmosphere surrounding the two thousand year old epic, it is highly imaginative in its structure, and depiction of these original events. Ini Njan Urangatte Malayalam follows the story of Karna alongside an ingeniously constructed parallel storyline of Draupadi, and the two themes are intricately meshed in, to form an intriguing plot. While it adds its own creative flavour to the story of Mahabharata, it maintains the sanctity and original theme of the great epic, distinguishing it from other works based on the Mahabharata. In this sense, the book has three different focal points, and is created with the hope that the final image thus created, will take a shape of its own. A timeless classic, Ini Njan Urangatte Malayalam has been praised unanimously for its unprecedented use of lofty language, and depth, and is regarded as one of the best examples of Malayalam literature.


Ini Njan Urangatte

Balakrishnan in The novel's inspiration is the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata. The post-independence period in Malayalam literature saw a fresh start in the history of long-form fiction in Malayalam as in many other Indian languages, parallel to the evolution of post-world war fiction in other parts of the world. Attempts to retell Puranic episodes were common during this period. In Malayalam, this trend was set by P. Balakrishnan with his redaction of the Mahabharata from the viewpoint of Draupadi.
