GIRISH KOHLI

Tehelka - - BOOKS - KOHLI

Rash­mi­rathi (one who rides the rays of the sun) by Ramd­hari Singh Dinkar is a col­lec­tion of Hindi po­ems on the life of the most cursed mytho­log­i­cal hero ever, Surya­pu­tra Dan­veer Karna. It an­swers why Karna sided with evil, why he spared his en­e­mies, why he gave up his im­mu­nity and why he chose an honourable death in­stead of a lux­u­ri­ous life. Each poem is in­de­pen­dent, yet they are all part of one co­her­ent story.
