Personalize Gift card Boook will send an email to receiver for gift card. A great compilation by the great author. The book is about the life and reign of Madakari Nayaka, the rule of Chitradura and his clash with Hyder Ali. It happens, just reset it in a minute. There is no doubt Durgastamana is not the only one of a fascinating historical novel but one of a fascinating novel in the Kannada.

Madakari Nayaka is a footnote in Indian history but he is the heart and ddurgastamana of Durgastamana book. It seems that the Chitradurga-Mysore friendship is genuine and strong. The language is awesome, the long sentences and the way which it is written engrosses you completely. With time, however, the Marathas become disunited and their internal strife leads to Hyder Ali gaining an upper hand once again.

Please comment with sensibility! Though the book ends on a tragic note by the fall of Chitradurga’s empire and the heart wrenching death of the king Madakarinayaka, one can find a true inspiration from this King on how to be loyal to your homeland and your followers in the midst of numerous challenges and betrayals.


An awesome and very Interesting novel even though most of all Kannadigas knows the ending of Madakari Nayaka As per this book, the war between Hyder Ali and Madakari Nayaka that went on for almost 8 months to an year is a battle that was never seen before and never after. His fearless attitude, his untainted charisma, his able administration, is a true testimonial of how great the Chitradurga during his time.

I think the novel raises the whole question of our attitude towards history and interpretation of history. Submit Review Submit Review.

With respect to Durgasttamana character! Must read for all the history buffs I was introduced to this book very late. Prior to his undertaking the writing, general opinion about Madakari Nayaka was that he was a vengeful, bloodthirsty and often lecherous ruler and that he had been betrayed by the erstwhile prime minister of the kingdom, KaLLi Narasappayya. Su gave a new dimension to look at Chitradurga. This being a character driven book, Contains a wide array of characters, all unique and well written.
