Ashwathama by Ashutosh Garg (Narrated by Neeraj Yadav) Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 234mb (7 hrs) Overview: It is an irony of fate that despite being an extremely important and immortal character in the saga of Mahabharata, Ashwatthama has always been neglected. There are other characters in puranic literature, including Ashwatthama, who are considered immortal. But where other characters have received immortality in the form of a boon, Ashwatthama received in the form of a curse! The story of any war is replete with tales of ruthless massacres, murder of innocents, and other kinds of misdeeds. Then what were those two unforgivable crimes committed by Ashwatthama in a great war like Mahabharata, for which Lord Krishna cursed him to wander the earth for thousands of years in a lonely and shabby state? Ashwatthama questions if Shri Krishna did injustice to him by giving such a harsh curse or if God had some divine purpose behind it. Did Lord Krishna want to give a message to modern society through Ashwatthama? In this new exciting novel, the author Ashutosh Garg presents the tragic story of Ashwatthama from the perspective of that great warrior, highlighting the hitherto untouched aspects of Ashwatthama’s life. Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi. Genre: Audiobooks > Non-Fiction > Faith, Beliefs & Philosophy
