    In this enthralling retelling of India’s greatest epic - the Mahabharata, originally known as Jaya - Devdutt Pattanaik seamlessly weaves into a single narrative plots from the Sanskrit classic as well as its many folk and regional variants, including the Pandavani of Chattisgarh, Gondhal of Maharashtra, Terukkuttu of Tamil Nadu, and Yakshagana of Karnataka.

    Story
    Would you listen to Jaya again? Why?

    I really enjoyed it and understood for the first time in my life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Capturing. May be I found it very interesting as I could correlate well with lots of names, customs described, locations, fictions versus reality and explanation of vedas.


    What does Devdutt Pattanaik and Dramanon Theater bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It certainly will be a very flat and boring book to read.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Mahabharat Simplified or Live through Mahabharat

    I am not sure. I am not a writer. I just enjoy listening.

  • The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism

    What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.

    Gare&Sophia says: "An excellent treatment of a fascinating topic."
    "A very good book for anyone. Learnt a lot."
