As Arjuna stands on the battlefield of the Great War of Kurukshetra, he finds himself surrounded by men he has known for years. He must wound, maim or kill them to earn what the Pandavas deserve. But how can he kill those in whose laps his childhood was spent, those gurus who taught him to hold his bow? As Arjuna faces this dilemma, Krishna, an avatara of Lord Vishnu, appears before him in his universal form. And thus begins a dialogue between them on what is right and what is wrong, on dharma and on the cycle of cause and consequence.
One of the core Hindu scriptures, the Bhagavad Gita holds important lessons on how we can live our lives and fulfil our duties, but the millennials may consider it too ancient for their use or too complex for their understanding. In this book, Bibek Debroy recasts the Bhagavad Gita in a simple and cohesive form for millennials, so that its content and deeper meaning are not lost with the generations of our grandparents and parents.
