As the Mahabharata war wages on, it shows no mercy and takes no prisoners. Death and destruction abound.

In the midst of a world rendered unrecognizable by the lust for power, malice and the machinations of war stand Bhishma, contemplating the immeasurable death he sees around himself as a man who cannot die, Draupadi, above and beyond the chaos and yet at the very centre of it, trying to protect her husbands at any cost, wondering whom to trust, and Arjuna, beloved, conflicted and melancholic in equal measure, uncertain of the ultimate cost of the war
he is intent on winning. The Dharma Forest is a magnificent first novel in a trilogy filled with complex characters, conflicted loyalties and erotic jealousies from India's most beloved epic.

The Dharma Forest, lit by sun-filtered sincerity and fed by both writerly ambitious and imagination, is dense with words and ideas whose lush and fertile undergrowth reaches deep into an ancient text to find truth and some kind of transcendental meaning for the 21st century individual.Investment banker Keerthik Sasidharan narrates the final days of the Kurukshetra war in his debut book The Dharma Forest.This Kurukshetra war novel explores conflicted loyalties and erotic jealousies of complex charactersThe Dharma Forest tells about Bhishma's wondrous immortal life, Draupadi's loves amid erotic jealousies, and Arjuna's war-weary courage.

In The Dharma Forest, Keerthik Sasidharan tells a luminous narrative of the
final days of the Kurukshetra War. Brilliantly evoked in fluid and elegant prose,
the familiar story of the Mahabharata here reads like a great war novel, filled
with magical stories, suffused with the qualms and complexities of human
beings alongside the divine wisdom of the gods. Powerful and bewitching,
beautifully written and profoundly steeped in the lore of the ancients,
The Dharma Forest moved me deeply.

In densely wooded prose, this novel leads us into the thickets of an ancient human story of love and catastrophe, where moral ambiguity, psychological complexity and soul-darkness spin on the edge of sudden illumination. A remarkable debut that combines imaginative heft with luminous insightThe Mahabharata itself is Dharmaranya, as individuals wander around in a mysterious forest, searching for their meaning of dharma. In the first book of a trilogy, with a conversation between Jara and Krishna as the mooring, Keerthik Sasidharan weaves a fascinating tapestry, with Bhisma, Draupadi and Arjuna as warp and woofI was charmed by this sparkling, imaginative feast of a mythological novel set in the last days of the great war in the Mahabharata. An inspired debut!
