Publisher's Summary

Kurukshetra is a Hindi classic. It gives an extraordinary account of the Kurukshetra war mentioned in the Mahabharata. It describes in vivid details the armed confrontation that took place between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. This bloody war lasted eighteen days. The author's own views on war are showcased in this work. He criticizes war but also admits that it is a necessary evil. It describes the demerits of war and the damage it does to mankind, through the medium of poetry.  

In a situation where one's country's freedom is threatened, one must defend oneself even if one has to resort to war. The importance of power is also emphasized. The negative consequences of war have been highlighted through the dialogues between Bhishma and Yudhisthira and the latter's remorse over his own actions. 

Kurukshetra is a beautifully written masterpiece, and it has a timeless appeal.

Great poetry on the Veer Rasa

Ch 2-5 were the best in which Bhishm pitamah speaks on veerta

Last 2 chapters were a bit of a stretch

A marvel piece of literature

BEST HINDI BOOK श्री DINKAR ये आपके liye sahi h

NARRATION BUILDING
बच्चों को मानसिक रुप से मजबूत बनाएं।
उन्हें सांस्कृतिक शब्दौं से परिचय कराएं।

वरना बालीवुड और आसपास के उर्दू चक्रव्यूह आपके बच्चों को निःशब्द कर जाएंगे।

फिर वे हमारी तरह english words पे shift करेंगे।

पतंग को जड़ों से मत काटिए
थोड़ी देर वायु में उपर भलें चले जाएं
लेकिन गिरना तय है।

कोरोना के बाद हिंदु मुस्लिम हर व्यक्ति की भारत वापसी की व्यग्रता देख अपनी महत्ता समझ आएगी।

कालजयी कृति

टिप्पणियाँ विशेष उपयोगी हैं. इस तरह 'कुरुक्षेत्र' का श्रवण अलग ही अनुभूति है. दिनकर की प्रतिभा को नमन.
