The Conflict of Karna

The title page of the book

That is the title of my upcoming novel. This is not a retelling of the well known tragedy of the warrior. This is new take on his life.

Like most Indians Karna and his life has fascinated me from the time I first heard it from my grandfather,the way tales were passed on in old times. Later after meeting Achilles I realised how much more complex Karna is.

He is floated down a river in a royal basket recalling to mind the story of Moses. Which came first. I think Karna.

Karna does not preach peace. He believes in resolving conflicts by fighting. This the only way he knows.

More after the book comes out, maybe in a month.
