Book review of Corpokshetra

Book Blurb:

The Pandavas have returned home 13 years of exile. And they are demanding their stake Hastinapur Inc.

But the Kauravas, led by the haughty Duryodhana, aren’t ready to give them a penny. The battle lines are drawn, only this war is in the present Kurukshetra – the corporate boardroom.

As the Kauravass and the Pandavas do their sharpest suits, Krishna – the wily Consultant – strateegises for peace

This is a humorous morden take on the Mahabharata (with due apologies to the Rishi Ved Vyas).

An epic story retold for the MBA generation.

My Review:

The book has been well written on the epic Mahabharata, but on a comical note. But this time the battle isn’t fought on the frontiers of Kurukshetra but in the corporate world, where Hastinapur Enterprise is the single largest business unit in entire Bharat. All the characters are portrayed in the mythical way and you will chuckle at some instances.

The author has done a great job in bringing the mythological characters in the way that hasn’t been imagined by many. Great job!
