आपणास माझे लेखन आवडते आहे असे ब्लॉगला भेट देणारांच्या वाढत्या संख्येवरून वाटते. विषेशकरून कर्णकथेला वाचक पुष्कळ मिळाले. आपल्या प्रतिक्रिया जरूर मिळावयास हव्यात! त्याशिवाय लिहीत राहण्याचा उत्साह कसा टिकून रहाणार?
I changed over from Marathi to English for my comments on Shri. Oak's book recently. I continue to get readers but there are no comments! Wonder whether I am boring!

Epoch of Arundhati
I have not written anything new on this blog for a long time. Now I am in US and my Marathi volumes of Mahabharata are not available to me any more. I have also already covered subjects which had attracted me while I read the books. I am going to write some comments on a book by another person, Shri. Nilesh Oak. His book is in English and many of his readers may not be familiar with Marathi. So I am going to write in English. Timing of the Mahabharat war is the main topic of the book. My attention was drawn to Shri. Oak's book by one of the readers here, about 2 years back (or more) and I immediately contacted Shri. Oak. Most generously he made his book and other material available to me on my computer in PDF format. We have had many discussions and exchange of e-mails on various topics from his book and despite a big age-difference, have developed a great relationship of mutual respect. We have great differences in our views on some points! His book has received wide-spread attention. I have no platform to air my differences with him, so I intend to air them here in the next few posts. Hope my readers will be interested.
