clearly He s an avatar of Vishnu come to mortal form to repress evil In the course of his life and teachings, there are some hard truths, nonedifficult that ones he imparts to Arjuna on the eve of the cosmically epic battle between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, who cheated the Pandavas out of their inheritance with loaded dice Someone forgot to tell Duryodhana what goes around comes around A universal truism if there ever was one Everything is change nothing, permanent One must do one s duty without attachment and one must always strive for justice and righteousness As you can clearly see, I was t very impressed with the storytelling Dialogues were filled with large words and very little emotions And the script wasn t compelling enough It was no match to the grandeur of the illustrations that accompanied it Krishna is a character I ve adored all my life I ve heard numerous stories of him as the butter thief, the prankster and the undeniably wise guide of Arjun As a

stories of him as the butter thief, the prankster and the undeniably wise guide of Arjun As a Hindu, I grew up amidst stories of Kannaiya I have sung bhajans in his praise I have danced to his leelas.So, when Krishna is such a big part of my life, I had huge expectations for this graphic novel.And I was disappointed.That said, I think that the artwork itself is mind blowing See, I know all of these stories already So I would sit late at night, propped against my pillow, open this graphic novel and ogle at the artwork with starry eyes It s worth it.I think that Indian graphic novels can be done in a much bigger scale and scores better quality wise We have the stories We just need the storytellers to do it right The kings of Indian mythology are amar chitra katha ack We live in a country where we hear Krishna s story on a daily basis For kids and anyone who wants to get a quick gist of Krishna s life, this book does the job The art is wonderful for sure, and better than amar chitra katha But when it comes to content, this cannot surpass Ack does a far better job in bringing out short and very beautiful stories in Krishna s period, which are not typically his well known pastimes I particularly lov The kings of Indian mythology are amar chitra katha ack We live in a country where we hear Krishna s story on a daily basis For kids and anyone who wants to get a quick

out short and very beautiful stories in Krishna s period, which are not typically his well known pastimes I particularly love Ack s stories on conversations between narada and krishna There is one statement in the narrative that is misplaced King yudhistira says that krishna does not get swayed by affection or attachment, but uses his wisdom In fact it s a little opposite Krishna only sways for affection and favors clearly those who are affectionate And such people are mostly righteous He has swayed towards bhishma, drona but in other ways In essence that s why he has a very special place in his heart for the milkmaids of vrindavan They know no wisdom, no strategy, just plain affection But no sweat This is a great book with amazing art and clean in it s intention There are no warped up theories, or own 2 cents from the author It s close to pure mythology Good read Krishna is full of colour, sometimes vibrant and sometimes toned down the colours always compliment the mood In his godly moments Krishna s blues become brighter with glowing highlights For those unfamiliar with Indian mythology, an introduction is provided with each chapter In the first part, a great tyrant rules

colour, sometimes vibrant and sometimes toned down the colours always compliment the mood In his godly moments Krishna s blues become brighter with glowing highlights For those unfamiliar with Indian mythology, an introduction is provided with each chapter In the first part, a great tyrant rules the land unjustly, and so Krishna is reborn to protect dharma Even as a child he defeats demons that are sent to assassinate him He is rash, but brave, and is protected by his divine right No matter how many strange events happen to him, the villagers always just accept and forget, remaining none the wiser to his true self In a world full of demons and gods, maybe this iscommonplace, but their reaction is still too muted Krishna s brother Balarama is also quite special, and manages to defeat several demons as well After the tyrant is defeated, and the real king restored, Krishna rescues Rukmini, who he then takes as his wife The next few chapters are about the great war that is fought between the Pandavas and Kauravas Even though of the same family, the war must happen to restore order Krishna acts in the role of adviser, being a better ally to have than an entire army Finally, his time on earth comes to an end, through the will of a curse, but in his time there he left behind many teachings to be passed on, of which the basics are mentioned in the preceding chapters Although Krishna has many virtues, his wisdom is the most prominent, foroften than not his enemies are defeated by his wise actions, rather than his strength He is a god that cares for the people, and the family he is born into This adaption does not include all his aspects, but does a fair job showing what it does
