  • The tales of Lord Krishna are known to everyone where we have seen numerous series and heard many stories of the Krishna. Also, we have heard and read about the divine entity in Mahabharata, especially in the sequence of the Kurukshetra war. But we never got to read a book that is actually the biography of Krishna. We have Bhagavata but that’s not accessible to everyone and also since it’s huge, it would be tough to read the whole book.

    If you are a mythology enthusiast then this book will entice you as it is a storehouse of information about Krishna’s life. Through his book, Mithilesh Kumar, (Supercop of Aryavrat) brings to light a whole sequence which summarises the life of Lord Krishna. The author has gone through intensive research and the effort is visible via the incidents that take place in the book which explains the characters and reveals some of the history of that time. If you are planning to read the book for the information as well, better sit with a journal in hand in order to note down the details of all characters.

    The plot takes the readers through the entire journey of Krishna from his birth to atrocities of Kansa and not to forget the curse by Narada. The episode of battle in Dwarka where Balram and Krishna are helplessly left to witness the death of millions of Yadavas takes the readers by surprise as they are unaware of the scenario and hence is a new addition in the reader’s experience. The narrative has been weaved in a comprehensive way which is simple and easy to the point of being vernacular.

    The story of Pandavas, Kauravas and that of the war is portrayed from Krishna’s perspective. How Krishna is caught between accusations is a new angle in the whole tale. At some point there is a seeming confusion between the contemporary narration and the traditional. For instance, the princess is addressed as Rajakumari while Kunti is addressed as Auntie by Krishna. The climax sums up why the beginning of the story took place but it could have been extended to the point where Krishna bids adieu to the materialistic world.

    The title could have been different because the term ” Supercop of Aryavrat” gives the impression of a futuristic science fiction wherein the book is indeed a historical fiction.

    Overall the book has good engaging powers which keeps the readers hooked at every point in the novel.
