Book Review: My Gita- Devdutt Patnaik

‘My Gita’ is equivalent to disclosure. A clarification that emphasis on the philosophy more than tagging as a historic one. If studied *The Bhagavad Gita* ever, one can find Illustrations, wince but remembering it is his take. Having slight knowledge about the actual book can also be a valid reason to pick this one up for gulping the much broader perspectives, Ongoing era, and the mold of philosophy regarding the entire saga while encircling Hinduism.

Patnaik dwells Krishna’s sermon to Arjuna’s; engulfing the territory of life as far as we have an idea: how can one spend life according to the rules and rituals? How can it be defined? With the assistance to various angles, how can two major roles differ? Why the Heroโ€™s not preferred beings, worthy of exaltation?

The entire script pinpointed a lot of sanctities and made me think pretty hard.

      3. Bliss to hear such kind words in the morning. Thank you so much. ^_^

        Definitely word press came as a great platform to connect with varied thought processes. I got some kinda self confidence after I stepped in to the blogging world. Previously things were pretty haywire in connection with the education I pursued, and career I chose. ๐Ÿ™‚

      4. yes, from a CA to a Writer.. have known another girl who is from the same field and in the same dilemma but managed to differentiate personal and professional goals.. being a lawyer i never thought to be able to write fiction but time and people have always have an impact on me.. i guess being a virgo its normal. ๐Ÿ™‚

      5. Indeed.
        Being a CA and after knowing some lawyers, dilemma’s are necessary to come along way. That’s the sarcastic beauty of these professions.

        Lets discuss more insights in future. Great to have a thoughtful conversation.

        Have a great day ahead. ๐Ÿ™‚
