KARNA’S ALTER EGO by Surendra Nath (Rating: 4½ out of 5)

Day: 1173rd

Blog Post: 120th

Book Review: 5th


I have read KARNAS ALTER EGO by Surendra Nath in October 2015. Actually I wanted to review the book by 15th November, but I couldnt publish due to my M.A. (English) part I examination. Before scribbling my review, I would like to thank two persons; Yes! First of all I would thank my blogger friend Tushti Bhatia from Author Paradise for her recommendation to read this book, and second one is obviously Author Surendra Nath Mohanty ji. He not only approached my proposal to review this book on my single request but he gave me full liberty to take time and to publish this review. A BIG THANK goes to him.


Detail Analysis/Review and Critical Appreciation of KARNA’S ALTER EGO

11846603_1170230592994199_60194448232709

[Image: Front and Back cover of Karnas Alter Ego.]

COVER and TITLE: Karnas Alter Egos cover is designed by Abinash Panda. He designed an attractive cover which is closely relevant to the theme and plot of the book. Blurry face on front cover looks like a facsimile of Vasus unknown face.

Title of the book KARNAS ALTER EGO is very eloquent. It is also printed well on the front cover. A conch (Shankh) between ALTER and EGO grows attractiveness of front cover. One can observe an archer Karnas bending image taking a bow carved on the conch. On back cover, forewords by Ruskin Bond and Manoj Das are noted above an another image of archer Karna.

BLURB: Karna, the ill-faced hero of Mahabharata. Many feel he deserved to win. If only luck favoured him.

5000 years later, we have man named Vasu, who is much like Karna – born illegitimate, very talented but denied all credits in life, rejected in love, misses a medal in the Asian games, gets caught for telling an innocent lie, overlooked for promotion. He begins to identify himself with Karna, and interestingly Karna appears to him after every debacle to assuage and encourage him.

It seems Vasu is Karna’s alter ego.

FOREWORDS:

I have been wondering what the genre of this book is. Is it mythological? Or is it social, with a quotidian theme? Perhaps, spiritual or philosophical? May be, a thriller! Its better you read it and find out yourself.

- Ruskin Bond

“A work of fiction that tries to connect millennia past with our age. Surendra Nath’s Karna’s Alter Ego deserves tributes that should go to imaginative handling of an unusual plot.”

- Manoj Das


SETTING:

Theme:- Theme of Karna’s Alter Ego is based on Hindu mythology, philosophy, spirituality, social issues and thrill; all the aspects of Karna’s life are connected with Vasu’s life.

Language: Author Surendra Nath used very simple and easy language in Karna’s Alter Ego. However brief narration in middle parts needs to refer a dictionary. Author uses words like ‘thee’ and ‘thou’ (i.e. you and your) from middle/Elizabethan age of English literature to denote quotations from the Mahabharata. Few figurative words used by author are cherry on a cake in Karna’s Alter Ego. First sentence of each chapter starts with CAPITAL letters. There is a proper use of italic fonts to indicate words from regional languages like Hindi, Odishi. Italic font is also used to mention mythological and spiritual words, to emphasize on a sentence and to narrate quotations. In the novel, author uses few abbreviations with their full forms (i.e. RDC- Republic Day Parade, ANO- Associate NCC Officers, IVF- In Vitro Fertilisation, PAP- Prospective Adoptive Parents, IFE- In Flight Executive and ILS- Instrument Landing Systems).

Locations: Plot and story of Karna’s Alter Ego is developed in different locations. Vasu lives his childhood in a village in Nasik (Nashik) district in Maharashtra, Vasu works in Bangalore (Karnataka), Jaipur (Rajasthan) and New Delhi.

Period: Background of the Karna’s Alter Ego’s plot is developed in current age (i.e. 21st century), medieval age and Mahabharata’s period. Karna’s life in unclear period of Mahabharata is significant and reflected with Vasu’s life in 21st century.

Author’s writing style: Author Surendra Nath uses narrative style of writing and this style suits to the theme perfectly. He narrates events in deep; for an instance I would mention an example, to describe a Tilak of sandalwood paste on forehead author writes ‘a Tilak in the shape of large U.’

PLOT

  • GENERAL PLOT:

Vasu is a protagonist. He is an alter ego of Karna. When Karna answers Vasu’s sensible questions, his answers seem realistic. While reading about NCC parade in Vasu’s school, my school days passed through my eyes though I wasn’t excellent in sports as Vasu is! I remember my mom’s devotion and faith on Hinduism; when I read about devotion and faith of Radha Sen. Author also portrays few romantic scenes in chapter ‘Romance in the Air’ in which readers will find so many surprises which I won’t disclose. Live-in-relationship between Vasu and Vrishali is also full with romanticism. Author compares Vasu’s stuggle to save passangers from hijack with the battle of Karna in Mahabharata. Karna was defeated in that battle but what happens with Vasu? Does he win? Or he lost? I won’t open climax; you have to read a novel to know the result of Vasu’s battle.

Did you ever fly aeroplane? No? I flied! Yes! I have flied an aircraft! How? I have experienced that thrill of flying a plane sitting in cockpit, when I read the scene of plane hijack in last chapter of Karna’s Alter Ego. When Vasu took charge as a pilot in cockpit; I too enjoyed that thrilling experience of flying a plane. Though author Surendra Nath ji acknowledged thank of Captain Zaheed Parwez sir (not a character, but real one), I too would like to thank him individually because of whom author and we readers could virtually experience of hijack.

  • QUOTES:

  1. “Success is ultimately yours if you try just one more time.”
  2. “All books are boring until they become interesting.”
  3. “They say dreams seen early in the morning come true.”
  4. “We must look beyond our tiny world, and we will be able to ignore our little worries.”
  5. “Grow, not merely physically, but also in your mindset, and prepare for greater challenges that lie ahead.”
  6. “Use setbacks as platforms to launch yourself to great success.”
  7. “Don’t mull over the past. Get on with your future. Make your school, your family, particularly your mother proud of you. I have often seen brilliant boys fall in grades as soon as they enter college merely due to their frivolous attitude. Don’t let that attitude take control of you.”
  8. “I have got only one life to live and one death to die; there better be a good cause to live and a good cause to die.”
  9. “They say everything is fair in love and war, I would go a step further, to say, Nothing is unfair in love and war.”

  • INSTRUCTIVE PLOT:

I think author Surendra Nath would collect information or he would have gained knowledge or researched about so many aspects which are used in the novel. He tells detail history of Ekalgiri’s name. One should refer the novel to get an idea about medieval period (i.e. 15th -16th century). Information about discovery of Tribal Troves/gold utensils is flawless. Author's research about kidney transplantation process and In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) can be seen in the scene. He tries to co-relate the story with touch of real incidents happened in past like The Day of Presidents (13th November 2004). He gives detail information about adoption process. One should read the book to know language used inside cockpit. Author might have researched a lot about aviation and pilot’s work, functioning of aeroplanes and aviation.

  • QUOTES:

  1. “It said that according to the Indian Act of Treasure Trove 1878, if there were no claimants, the treasure would belong to the state, but the finder would be paid the current market value of the treasure.”
  2. “A donor should not be above 60 years of age.” (for kidney transplantation)
  3. “As per strict Hindu principles, the eldest son, whose father was alive, should not perform the last rites of any person. The funeral rites one must accord to one’s father first and then to any other person.”
  4. “The success rate for IVF is at best 35 per cent, by success we mean the successful fertilization of the egg outside the woman’s body. After the fertilized ovum is put back into the uterus, there is still no assurance of its growth into a viable embryo.”
  5. “Landing is the most difficult manoeuvre for any aviator, but he most satisfying one too.”

  • MYTHOLOGICAL, PHILOSOPHICAL and SPIRITUAL PLOT:

Author comments on fate and dream in discussion between Karna and protagonist Vasu… “To understand the nuances of fate, it is very difficult, especially when in worldly affairs one is so engrossed. But when you look back, you realise it was only working matters in your favour.”

We get to know about Eklavya’s story from Karna. Author comments about punishment for committed or not committed sins in previous birth from two different angles in debate between Karna and Vasu by mythological and philosophical point of view… “I think, putting the blame for our sufferings on some unknown sin in the past is only a way of consoling ourselves, when fate deals us an unfair blow.” “When you say ‘he might have committed (sinful actions)’, does it not also imply that he might not have committed.” “How can one be punished without being told what exactly is his sin?”

 Author satires on legal system of punishment through the mouth of Karna quoting “If someone kills a single man or ten, he gets the same punishment in your legal system.” Author describes the philosophy of Karma and Moksha (Fate and Salvation).

  • QUOTES:

  1. “Mortals may only guess or estimate their future prospects, but accurate prediction is not meant for the human domain. Accept your prospects with equanimity, and that’s all you need to do. Be not too happy nor be too unhappy at what you receive.”
  2. Karna speak his first words of appreciation, “Do you know, twice did Yudhisthira play the game of dice? The first time, everything he lost including Draupadi, but everything he was given back. Everything he had lost in that game was returned to him!”
  3. Karna advices: “What you believe you rightfully deserve may not be meant for you at all.”
  4. “Confuse not between untruths and lies. A lie is a falsehood intentionally done, but an untruth is not a lie; it is merely uttered by someone who is, of the truth, unaware. Every lie is an untruth, but not every untruth a lie.”
  5. “If you condone a child’s lie, it is encouraged to tell more lies until he grows up to be a big liar.”
  6. “Man still needs to show faith in God’s creation and do good in all he does. If he does good, good will result, and if he does bad, bad will result. And so the circle of karma (fate) goes on.”
  7. “As a man, casting off robes that are worn out, putteth on others that are new, so the embodied soul, casting off bodies that are worn out,entereth other bodies that are new.” –Shree Krishna says in Mahabharata (Bhagwad Geeta)
  8. “Man is never the agent of his acts, right or wrong. Indeed, like a wooden machine, man is not an agent, in all he does. In this respect, three opinions are entertained: some say that everything is ordained by God; some say that our acts are the result of free-will; and others say that our acts are the result of those of our past lives.” –Mahabharata

  • SOCIAL PLOT:

Author comments on several social issues like mid-day meal, teachers’ absence in schools. He describes how few rich people use poor as an object to fulfill their lust. Why poor boys like Vasu join NCC? Author narrates a fact about gambling, connection between master and Jambura, dealer and helper and their trick. He alerts about result of covetousness. Author warns gamblers that realization of mistake couldn’t correct. While reading this scene, I remembered my worse experience in gambling. Yes! I am not a gambler but I too have lost Rs. 500/- in a bet sometime in December 2013. I am not covetous but I had lost Rs.500/- within less than a minute. At that time no one asked me to promise as Karna asks Vasu, “promise me this day that never in your life you shall ever gamble.” But I promised myself as Vasu promises to his Mahapurush Karna, “Never, Mahapurush, never in my life I shall gamble again!” Author also remarks on fact about illegal gambling in train. I think this picture should come to an end. Author shares his worry about small smarts like painters’ unemployment. He satires on a relationship built on internet.

Author brings readers’ attention at women’s physical assault by their drunk husbands. He also gives an example of Vrishali’s molestation. He does not only criticize on women’s assaults but slap on educated people who boycott or ignore victims indirectly, He set an example that how people should react with victims through Vasu’s decent and helpful behavior with Vrishali. Author satires on female feticides and gives a massage to save girl child in scene of adoption quoting “We hear so many parents committing female foeticide, and worse, female infanticide. When we have a choice, why don’t we give the girl child a chance? Let us choose sensibly rather than go the way thousands of people in this country are going today. Let’s not insist on a male progeny, let’s not reject a girl child.” He comments about financial problems of middle class family.

People don’t even help accident victims, they ignore beggars as they borne poor but author shows humanity through the character of Vasu when he offers funeral rites on dead body of a beggar Aditya. Author satires on superstitious attempts to fulfill wishes. He comments on dark against fair complexion through philosophical point of view and peoples’ tendency about apartheid in quotes “Think of Gandhi who fought against discrimination based on colour. Elsewhere, in the world Mandela eradicated a curse of Apartheid. And here we are stuck on skin colour. Isn’t a shame, ‘reserving’ a fair looking child?” and “If you truly wish to adopt a child, choose not like you are picking some commodity. If it had been naturally born to you, and come with some physical deformity, would you then seek and alternate child?” He also appeals to stop apartheid and to stop discrimination on basis of complexion.

  • QUOTES:

  1.  “As in most orthodox families, the girl’s opinion was considered irrelevant. The girl was only supposed to blush to imply her consent for getting married. An arranged marriage is all right but not a forced one.
  2. “It is customary for the boy’s parents to call on the girl’s house with a proposal of marriage.”

DRAWBACKS:

Though the book is highly appreciable, let me inform you about few drawbacks of Karna’s Alter Ego:

  • Fainted Printing: Few words printed in the book are fainted.
  • Over-use of Italic Fonts: Though I appreciated italic fots’s use in a book as positive aspect, I must share that I feel over use of italic fonts inappropriate instead of single/double inverted commas to describe a quotations.
  • Hindi words are not explained in English.
  • Stretched Story: I feel the story stretched in chapter seven and eleven, otherwise book might be short.
  • Print Mistakes: Editor and publisher would check the draft so many times before print, but still I noticed three print mistakes in Karna’s Alter Ego. Two mistakes among them are about mis-spelling the name of Vrishali. Vrishali is mis-spelled as ‘Varishali’ and ‘Vaishali’ on page no. 122 and 177 respectively. Third print mistake is about Ghatotkacha’s name which is mis-spelled as Ghatokacha on page no. 148.
  • Use of Real names: Author has used real names of presidents without their permission.
  • Author’s brief introduction is missing in the book.

REVIEWER’S NOTES:

12316624_915437371905499_381089617842425

[Image: Rajesh D. Hajare reading Karnas Alter Ego.]

I read the book and liked very much. A famous author Ruskin Bond asks a question about selective theme of Karna’s Alter Ego. Yes! He is right. Karna’s Alter Ego does not fit in any one theme but all themes are fit perfectly for the book. Surendra Nath ji covers several themes like mythology, social, quotidian, spiritual, philosophical and thriller in a single novel Karna’s Alter Ego.

I would highly recommend all to must read this page-turner. And if you are seeking to enjoy, learn, grow your knowledge about Hindu mythology and experience a thrill in a single novel; you must read Karna’s Alter Ego. These kind of books do not publish every year, so you won’t afford to miss reading this novel. I would highly recommend Karna’s Alter Ego to all of you interested to read and enjoy different themes in single book.


RATING:

According to my detail analysis, Karna’s Alter Ego deserves 4.35 but I would give extra 0.15 to the author Surendra Nath Mohanty ji for covering various themes in a single novel. So I will give 4½ out of 5 which is EXCELLENT!

    Thank you Mr. Rajesh. You have done a very detailed and thorough job in your review of 'Karna's Alter Ego'. The review covers every aspect of the book. I am glad that you have brought out the three typing errors in the names. If there are any errors or negative points you may send me in my inbox message.
    Further, I thought you'll identify that Vashusena is another name of Karna in the Mahabharata. Vrishali is Karna's wife, Suyodhana is the original name of Duryodhan, Kiriti, Savyasachi, Jishnu, Partha, Phalgun, Vijay, Dhananjay (all rivals of Vasu) are the different names of Arjun. Sairandhri, who ditched Vasu is another name of Draupadi, Sarathi means Charioteer, that is foster father of Karna, Ravindra means Surya - the biological father Karna, Radha mother of Karna.
    Thank you for such a detailed review. You have covered every angle, with respect to philosophy, social issues as well as by timeline.

    @Subhajit Das,
    Yes sir.. this book is the one of my favourite in the genre of MYTHOLOGY

    ReplyDelete
  7. Shri Rajesh D. Hajare sir, I have previously read your review also, but since I hadn't read the book back then, I hadn't much to know about except for what you had written in the review.

    Now that I have read the book, I deeply appreciate the fact that you've delved so deep into the book and dissected it the way a biology student would dissect a botanical or zoological specimen. After reading your review, sir, I would want to elucidate on some points that I felt were somewhat inaccurate in the review, no offence intended.

    Firstly sir, I feel Vrishali wasn't in a live-in relationship with Vasu. She was staying with him only till she got better and there was a platonic level between them at that time, and that doesn't qualify as a live-in relationship. She moved in with him only after they married.

    Secondly sir, I agree with you that the author has researched a lot on aviation. I do feel he also had prior knowledge of it as he's an ex Armyman.

    Thirdly sir, I also wish to bring to your notice that Vasu didn't offer funeral rites to Aditya, because the eldest son cannot offer funeral rites to any other person as long as his own father is alive. He did pay for all rites and rituals duly, so that he would feel satisfied by that.

    Also sir, under the social plot, the word 'message' has been misspelled as 'massage' in the phrase 'message on female foeticide'

    Though these are some things I thought I should bring to your notice, still, I feel your review is an in depth analysis of the book, and I truly appreciate the way your review has taken on the entire book without leaving behind any of its aspects. I'm happy I got to read it. Thank you sir.

      Dear Dipti Mishra ma'am,
      Firstly Thank you so much for appreciating my review, your detailed feedback and for informing me my mistakes as well. I will answer to your each point one by one-

      1. Yes ma'am.. you are right... Your view on live-in relation term is also correct.. May be I have mentioned a phrase live in relationship. But by using this word/phrase I didn't mean that their relationship was not platonic.. but this is happened because of my weak English, I accept it..

      2. Sorry ma'am, I didn't know that the author Surendra Mohanty ji is an ex army man.. I was considering him as a horse rider, I know that my comment may be surprise him.. But if I would have known that he was an army man, I would have mentioned that in my review as well.. or may be I have misunderstood with the subject you are talking as an ex army man...

      3. May be I have narrated that scene in a wrong way .. again because of my weak Eng
      But what I wanted to mention was Vasu showed his kindness for the dead body of such a beggar/poor person like Aditya and gives us a message to show some humanity and not to ignore our role.. or not to discriminate or hate poor.

      4. I know the difference between massage and message, and yes, that is 100% misspellings... I meant message.

      I really appreciate your comment and I thank you from bottom of my heart for letting me know about my mistakes.

      I don't promise that I will correct those mistakes in my published review, but I will try for all corrections for sure.

      Thank you so much ma'am...
      I am really obliged to have such a detailed and fantastic comment from a deep observer reader and commenter like me... hahaha.
      I would like you to spare some time and read my other reviews and please give your most valuable feedbacks on my reviews.
      Thank you again.

      Regards,

But if I would have known that he was an army man, I would have mentioned that in my review as well.. or may be I have misunderstood with the subject you are talking as an ex army man...

    3. May be I have narrated that scene in a wrong way .. again because of my weak Eng
    But what I wanted to mention was Vasu showed his kindness for the dead body of such a beggar/poor person like Aditya and gives us a message to show some humanity and not to ignore our role.. or not to discriminate or hate poor.

    4. I know the difference between massage and message, and yes, that is 100% misspellings... I meant message.

    I really appreciate your comment and I thank you from bottom of my heart for letting me know about my mistakes.

    I don't promise that I will correct those mistakes in my published review, but I will try for all corrections for sure.

    Thank you so much ma'am...

  9. Hehe
    I'm not a ma'am, I'm just a student
    It's okay, I understand it. My English is fairly ok, I can't say if it's high class. So I understand. We can't be jack of all trades . Despite that, your review is amazing.
    And of course, I'd love to see all the other reviews of yours. Thank you so much.
