A Trail of Words...: Arjuna by Anuja Chandramouli

"...witty, touching, historical and magical. Every part of Arjuna's life is explained in such a vivid detail as if the author, herself, has witnessed the happenings and came up with this masterpiece" writes Sundeep Naidu of booksreviewwala. He also thanked me for being my grandmother! Read the rest of his review here

Arjuna: Saga of a Pandava Warrior – Prince Review by Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay

Anuja Chandramouli has expertly woven in the story of Arjuna’s life in this novel with her crisp language and smooth flow of writing. The chapters were clear and each complete in its own right. It was almost easy to imagine that I was reading a series of short stories relating to the same cast. Yet they connected and complimented each other very well to form a novel that can claim some acclaim.

Arjuna is "extremely readable" says Robin Shukla

Arjuna is "extremely readable" says Robin Shukla of the Afternoon Despatch and Courier. You can read the rest of the review and his insights on women in times good and bad here

And just to clarify Mr. Shukla, the sexual incontinence of the sages, seers and the rest of the holier - than - thou types was supposed to be amusing :)

Charming, delectable etc etc.: Priyanka and Leo share their thoughts on Arjuna

Anuja has wrapped the ancient story in a delectable christmas box of fluent writing.
What I liked most – her choice of words and flair in writing. I’m not shy to admit that I learnt quite a number of new words from her. She has written chapters one after another seamlessly. I am much impressed with the form of this book, not the content...

What I like in the book is Anuja’s understanding and passion for the story, as she tells every detail and the reader can’t help but turn the page to find out what more is there for them to read. Be it the childhood games of the Pandavas, or the rivalry between Karna and Arjuna, she tells it with a charm.
