About the Book:
“Do you think you are the SuperCop of Aryavrat?”
Balram’s words continue to haunt a helpless Krishna, as he watches the Yadav clan go on a rampage. The year is 3102 BC. Krishna lies all alone in a forest and resurrects in his mind the events of his adventurous life.His venturesome journey began in the cradle itself. From his childhood escapades to the thrills of his youth, the eternal charmer dazzled hundreds of women and later became the ‘go to man’ of the entire populace of Aryavrat. His life meandered from Gokul to Dwarka, and from Pushkar to Assam until the great war happened. Could he have prevented it altogether? Did it change the course of Krishna’s life? Maybe. Mithilesh Kumar spins a tale in which love and romance blossom while the fiercest of battles are being fought, treachery and malevolence raise their ugly heads time and again, alliances are forged, friendships are tested, unlikely events happen and the ‘SuperCop’ manages it all with panache.

My thoughts on the Book:
What I liked the most in this book was that the story was narrated from Krishna’s perspectives. The author nicely narrated the tale in which not only the love and romance bloom but vicious battles were also fought. All our life we were taught to worship lord Krishna and through this book I was also able to learn how Krishna felt and dealt with each occurrences life had to throw at him! This is not just a tale on how Krishna killed Kansa or how he created Sudarshan Chakra or how the Yadava clan annihilated themselves. it’s the whole narrative from Krishna’s birth till his last breath. Maybe because of this reason there were too many characters to remember and I was struggling to keep up and recall with all these names. Overall this is a great book for people who wants to know and learn about Lord Krishna. Also, the cover of the book is so beautiful! My ratings: 🌟🌟🌟1/2
