Kondw Chola has always been a fascinating figure t If you want to know anything and everything about Rajendra Chola, then this book is for you,the author Balakumaran who continues the history of Cholas after Udaiyar examines every aspect of the life of Rajendra Chola and crafts an extremely detailed and dense history of the great man and his conquests. Rajendra Chola has always been a fascinating figure to me. Modern society likes to portray him as a ruthless ruler and focus on the number of deaths involved in his conquest, but you just can’t retrospectively judge figures from history with modern morals and ethics.
Balakumaran once again brings the world of Cholas to life, but he never veers off into imagination or speculation – he constantly reminds readers of how little there is left, how much is still unknown.
One character that got me interested was that of Veerama Devi one of the wifes of Rajendra Chola,she was a warrior who could throw a spear riding a horse with so much ease,that Rajendra Chola used her for covet operations like the present day US Marine sent her into other kingdoms.
This makes me wonder how far advanced they were on on the role of women warriors. Her role looks like it would continue in the second part. Like Udaiyar the authors knowledge about the cholas is incredible, and like his previous works his narration is always brillant He has brought so much interest in Cholas and their life, someone shuld translate this great work so it can be enjoyed by a lot of people.

Takes off just after Udayaar. Jun 09, Thangavel Mooventhan rated it it was amazing. Apr 10, Aravindhan rated it really liked it. Good novel which revolves about the early days of Rajendra Chozhan when he came to power. Mar 30, Ganesh rated it liked it. Somewhere I felt the burning passion and desire the author had for Rajarajan is obviously missing as I kond through Rajendran.
Too many characters so much of chaos which makes it clearly obvious the lack of a solid plot. Although it doesn’t inspire you like Rajarajan you may still wish to read through the next volumes to find out what happens as the Royal Cholan army marches across borders and countries in name of their people and culture!

I want to read this book. Dec 30, Sowrirajan rated it really liked it. I feel this is better than Udayar. Mar 05, Natrajan added it Shelves: Not so good as Udayar.
Lots of mistake, story line continuation is also not good.
