Published by Leadstart, the Flawed Good Man by Sanskriti Singh is mythological novel emanating from the epic of Mahabharata. There have been scores of retelling of Mahabharata – mostly about Pandavas, and at times about the lord Krishna. However, only a handful of books have been published that tell the story from other side: Kauravas. The world may be eulogizing Pandavas and their fate, but there were some terrific and larger-than-life heroes at the wrong side. One such figure was Karna. On similar lines, the young author from India ‘Sanskriti Singh’ has brought forward a story way profound and engaging in its essence.
The Flawed Good Man is a story of Karna. Whether people have read the epic Mahabharata or not, they are aware of Karna’s valor and big-hearted donations. He was a perfect kind of warrior and human being. But his life journey was not soothing – he endured pain, being ignored, and struggled for identity and education. This book takes the reader through the life journey of Karna. The book presents all the events – from birth to death – in a credible chronicle. The novel sheds lights on his birth and how his mother Kunti abandoned him and under what circumstances he was raised by Radha and Adhirath. What values and traits ossified him into a world-class archer and warrior?
Though told in a fictional way, the story is terrific and looks like one of the best mythological fictions of this year. Someone who is looking something different than Amish and Devdutt Pattanaik – must try this 300 plus pages novel. Moving at a measured pace, Sanskriti Singh has kept the language simple and narration captivating.
