Srikrishna the lord of the universe

Author: Shivaji Sawant
Publisher: Mehta Publishing House
(Pp 1066, ISBN
978-93-86888-73-0, Rs 995)

Srikrishna! A monumental epoch-maker that has reigned the hearts of Indian men and women, young and old alike for more than five thousand years! Today, Srikrishna is far removed from reality. Is it possible then to perceive Srikrishna’s life de facto without deviating from the facts of his existence? Did he only preach what he expounded in the Gita? Or did he actually practice it in his own life? If the imaginary layers enshrouding his life story are peeled off delicately with careful reasoning it is possible to view his epoch-making, versatile character as is.

Yugandhar! Another masterpiece from the renowned author of Mrityunjaya; penned after rigorous travelling across India, years of meticulous research and contemplation, and interviewing many scholars.
