Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. It is one of the most appreciated works of Dinkar other than “Kurukshetra”. Karna was first born son of Kunti whom she had abandoned at birth as he was an illegitimate son. Karna grew up in a lowly family, yet became one of the best warriors of his time. In the Great Mahabharata war, Karna was obliged to fight from the side of Duryodhana as Duryodhana recognizing his merits had made him a king and adopted him as a close friend.

Karna fighting from Kaurava’s side was a great worry of Pandavas as he was reputed to be unconquerable in war. The way Dinkar has presented the story of Karna with all hues of human emotions trapped in moral dilemmas, is simply marvelous. The rhythm and meter is lilting. Choice of words and purity of language is exhilarating.

The work has a timeless relevance and is a must read. PaperbackThirdpages. Published by Lokbharti Prakashan first published January 1st To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Such unequaled is his style! The Great Stories are the ones you have donkar and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They are as familiar as the house you live in. And yet you want to know again. THAT is their mystery and magic. Worth mentioning here is the view Dinkar take on Karna. Pleasure to the reader especially to me. Karna is my favourite character! It is like seeing it with your own eyes. Overwhelmed I am, whenever I read Dinkar!

Jul 17, Tanuj Solanki rated it really liked it Shelves: The most famous passage is that of the first theophany – Krsna revealing himself to Duryodhana in the Kourava court. Interesting to note is the fact that this revelation takes place before the revelation to Arjuna.


Apr 16, Himanshu rated it it was rasjmirathi Shelves: Nothing short of extraordinary. It is saddening that hindi literature of such stature will only find itself under the dust of historical achievements of mankind, for the generations to come.

And to see it crumbling in front of our eyes is truly heartbreaking.

I was just enthralled by the lines that were posted from this book. Fortunately I could immediately get it and read it in one stroke. Rashmirathi is the first hindi book I have ever read and probably the best rashmjrathi. I have always been a huge fan of Karna and Mrityunjay and Rashmirathi have deepened my respect and admiration for him.

One can read this book over and over and still find it extrem This book is just amazing!!! One can read this book over and over and still find it extremely fascinating and even more rsshmirathi.

The best part according to me was the kavach kundal daan. If you can read Hindi just do yourself a favour and read Rashmirathi. The book is a masterpiece in Indian literature. A must read for all the Indian rzshmirathi fans. Apr 02, Rishabh Tripathi rated it it was amazing. I would not take the credit off from Piyush mishra for popularizing the parts of this epos. This chapter beautifully captures the aggravated emotions of the otherwise tactical Krishna and the fear he inculcates in the Sabha.

So if you can read in Hindi, this is a must. Please do read this in Hindi and not any english translations and explanations. To say the least its like reading Kafka in German: Feb 06, Bharat Jain rated it it was amazing.

I came across this book after watching this videoin which Manoj Bajpai beautifully recites verses from one of the chapters of Rashmirathi. The book eulogizes Karna, who is well-known not just for his skills and prowess as a warrior but also for his generosity and unrelenting pursuit of Dharma. Each verse is filled with rhythmic music and will leave you delighted. Aug 27, Shishir Chaudhary rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone who knows Hindi.

रश्मिरथी by Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’

Composed by one of the greatest Hindi language poets of all times, it is about the most controversial and powerful character of Mahabharata – Karna. While this poem turned my perception of Karna upside down, making him the most heroic, honest and mightiest character of the story, it also moved me deeply in some of the sections, bringing me on the brink of shedding tears, especially in two scenes – When Kunti meets Karna a day before the war and when he faces Arjuna’s arrows, knowing he was to die unfairly.


You have to read it to know what I mean. Apart from the story, Dinkar, throughout, comments on some of the burning issues of today’s world – class difference, casteism, war and the idea of victory among many more. Oct 27, Vikalp Trivedi rated it it was amazing Shelves: The poem is composed in Veer-Ras and is composed so brilliantly that it literally gives goosebumps to the reader.

I’ve read some books based on the Mahabharata in which Karn is one of the chief character. But those books mostly portrayed the tragidies surrounding Karn’s life and on the other hand this books portrays the stand of Karn aga “Rashmirathi” by Ramdhari Singh Dinkar is a phenomenal poem based on the life and moreover struggle of the most underrated character of the Mahabharat – Karn.

But those books mostly portrayed the tragidies surrounding Karn’s life and on the other hand this books portrays the stand of Karn against all the odds he faced throughout his life. Entire poem was great but the parts I liked most were the training days of Karn with Parshuram especially Parshuram’s affection for Karnconversation of Karn with KrishnaIndra and Kunti and Krishna’s warning in the Kuru Court. It happens with every book related to the Mahabharat that it gives many answers to many questionsbut also asks some new ones.

This book is no exception and it poses some questions on the Pandav side which should be thought of and also there are the ones which directly questions their agenda itself of fighting the war. There is one more thing which I liked about the poem that the author has used many incedences of the Mahabharata to target the condition of the nation at the time “Rashmirathi” was published mainly caste discrimination and evils of war ironically many of the conditions are still the same.

Overall a wonderful and intriguing book. Glad it was my 50th book. Aug 26, Pinaki Swain rated it it was amazing Shelves: Masterpiece in every sense. Sep 05, Akash rated it it was amazing. A marvelous piece of writing of our times. Jul 27, Shubham Joshi rated it it was amazing. Penned by Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’, the national poet of the country, Rashmirathi is a Maha-Katha-Kavya, a poem that tells a philosophically dense and psychologically engaging story in a lyrical fashion.

The entirety of the po ‘Rashmirathi’ or ‘The Sun’s Charioteer’ is an epic Hindi poem based on the story of Karna, a pivotal character in the Hindu epic Mahabharata.

Ashamed of the premarital birth of her son, she abandons Karna in a basket and lets him drift away. Karna pays the price of someone else’s actions, as he would do throughout his life. Karna was then found by a low caste ‘Sut’ Stableman who raises him as his son.
