Indica Books Author Q&A: Abhimanyu: The Warrior Prince by Deepak MR

Indica Books presents Author Q&A with Deepak MR

Book Discussion – ” Abhimanyu: The Warrior Prince ”

About the Book

Born to Arjuna, Abhimanyu was Krishna’s favourite nephew and the grandson of Indra. He was a maharathi at the age of sixteen, who was destined to rule Hastinapur. The apple of everyone’s eye, why did fate so cruelly cut short his life? Why didn’t Krishna save him? Why couldn’t his legendary warrior father save him?

 is the story of a young man in his quest for love, valour and honour. Experience his struggles to become a great warrior, and join him in his quest to find his father. Exult as he finds love in Uttara and enjoys life with his family. Accompany him to the battlefield where his destiny awaits him.

One of the greatest heroes of the Mahabharata, the sixteen-year-old Abhimanyu single-handedly brings the Kaurava army to the verge of defeat but is ultimately killed in cold blood by treachery. This is also the tale of how an act of adharma seals the fate of the Kauravas.

Fast-paced and packed with action, this retelling, based on Vyasa’s Mahabharata and the rich folklore of India, narrates a saga of bravery. This is the story of a devoted son, a loving husband, a father who never saw his son and an emperor whose fate stopped him from wearing the crown.
