A dialog between Yudhistir and Bhishma after the battle of Mahabharat was over. In this war respected warrior like you have been put out by wrong means. Where both parties killed others eg Abhimanyu and Duryodhana by following unethical practices, all of us equal sinners And B Great Book that analyse the need and justification of war. Where both parties killed others eg Abhimanyu and Duryodhana by following unethical practices, all of us equal sinners And Bhishma tries to justify the actions: Who is the real sinner?
He who depraves somebody from justice? Or he who destroys obstacles between him and the justice? Dinkar ji had rare courage to openly endorse the use of power over the philosophy ” To forgive you need power Nov 25, Vikalp Trivedi rated it really liked it Shelves: The peace which was created by the endless pile of corpses. A peace which is haunting. The book was written when the Second World War was just over and a seme kind of peace was prevailing.
The author questions that is war the only resort to restore peace? Is the peace created by war the same peace for which war was started? With some memorable quotes and undoubtedly wonderful writing yet t The book focuses on ‘Shanti Parv’ of The Mahabharatwhere Yudhisthir talks with Bheeshm about peace. With some memorable quotes and undoubtedly wonderful writing yet the books slightly fails to match the sheer excellence of Dinkarji’s best work – ‘Rashmirathi’.

May 09, Abhishek Sawarna rated it it was amazing. It tells you about the stuffs bhishma said to yudhistir after the Mahabharata ended and when dharmraj refused to take up the throne as he thinks it is useless to rule the kingdom of dead bodies. Bhishma then explained him the duties of the king.
Mar 21, Harshit Gupta rated it really liked it Shelves: I haven’t read much poetry, but Dinkar’s simple poetry talks about today’s scenario in simple words though it talks from the stage of Kurukshetra. The last parts where Bhishm talks to Arjun about how he should not go for Sanyaas and instead do what he is supposed to do, are really good. Nov 24, Rahul Khanna rated it liked it.

Good one After Rashmirathi. Mar 22, Vibhor sen rated it really liked it. One of the best books ever read. Apr 15, Pankaj Kumar rated it really liked it. You’ll have to recite it to get the essence of this marvelous piece of poetry. I had to read this multiple times to better understand this beautiful philosophical poetry. Perhaps this was because I haven’t read a hindi book in a long time and have lost touch with a language I grew up speaking.
Anyway, this poem touched on two of my favourite topics – Mahabharata and philosophy of life. Dinkar was a true socialist like most people of his time and through the dialogue between Bhishma and Yudhishtra, he explores the relevance of wars and what humans should aspire for.
Dinkar I had to read this multiple times to better understand this beautiful philosophical poetry.
Ramdhari Singh Dinkar
Dinkar is not afraid to explore the dilemmas of human mind and adeptly provides answers in the course of the poem. Definitely recommended and I can’t wait to rediscover this prodigious poet and essayist. Aug 13, Ritu rated it liked it. In all honesty, I am not qualified to rate this book.
Despite being a native Hindi speaker, I found dinkarr vocabulary to be very difficult. To give some context, I have read a few works of Premchand and I am pretty comfortable with the language. This one was high difficulty for me. I could not understand the meaning of much of the text and hence could dinkxr fully appreciate it. In the end I got the gist but would have loved to appreciate dinkaf choice of words as well.
I give this book 3 stars but that In all honesty, I am not qualified to rate this book. I give this book 3 stars but that could be due to my own shortcoming not of the author. Jun 25, Vineet Singh rated it it was amazing. I was blown away by the prose that Dinkar Saab has imagined and put on paper Now I get the point why we were force fed Dinkar in 10th Grade, but Dinkar can hardly make sense at that age You have to have lived a life, have had losses and wins, to truly appreciate Dinkar Highly Recommended!!!

Kurukshetra by Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’ | Ajitabh
Yudhisthir, the eldest Pandav, after winnig the great war against his cousins, Kauravs, stands at the battlefield and feels nothig but despair. He understands that all the losses, deaths, wins have all been for nothing.
In this desperation, he seeks answers and who else than Bheeshma, the great grand father of Kurus comes to the rescue. While on his deathbed, he has regrets of his own.
Still, he helps Yudhisthir The national poet of India, Dinkar questions the futility of war in this epic poem. Still, he helps Yudhisthir understand the necessity of war. Dinkar has tried to put forward all sides of the epic battle and through it, his own predicaments regarding wars in current scenario. Even though this book was written almost 60 years back, the questions it raises are more pertinent now, than they ever were.
He concludes on a sobering note that things can change, war can be stopped if only we, the humans, every single of us, care to look inside. If only, we care to look for the real meaning of life. Sep 09, Pinaki Swain rated it it was amazing.
