Keshava: A Magnificent Obsession review:
Reading books that speak mythology is divine for myth lovers. If it is about Lord Krishna the delight doubles. That’s what Keshava: A Magnificent Obsession does to its readers. Bhawana Somaaya who is known for writing bios of Amitabh and Hema Malini, has penned Keshava. It is her 14th book and 2nd on the deity.
Keshava speaks about Lord Krishna’s love for his eight beloved things. The Peacock, the Kadamba tree, the Flute, the herbal plant Tulsi, the Lotus, His cow Kamadhenu, the Conch and the Peepala tree. These eight things play a major role in the deity’s myth. So does in this book.
The beauty of the book lies in its narration. Bhawana Somaaya has narrated the book in two perspectives. One narrates the eight divine things and why do they love Lord Krishna. The other narrates the deity’s love towards these divine things.
It is joyful read for those who love Lord Krishna and an enlightenment for those who love mythology. The book does create a peace of mind when reading. The lucid language makes it an easy read. The lyrical narration is another attractive aspect about the book. Bhawana has used verses with its meaning to narrate the stories.
A must read for Lord Krishna lovers and mythology fans. Peace of mind guaranteed for general readers.
