Mathematical equations aside, this translates to infinite positions. So his characters speak in orll language, seem to sprout Marxist ideology, all of which is perfectly acceptable.

Jan 25, Mohit rated it it was amazing. Astute and intelligent, he suggests that Suyodhana challenge Yudhishtra, a gambling addict, to a game of dice.

The book raises valid questions through its characters, which throbs with life.

Book Review | Ajaya | Roll Of The Dice by Anand Neelkanthan

Mahabharata is a story of Strong Warriors. He has even connected some things to the present era. It is also a validation of a personal unorthodox stance on the epic’s moral take.
