MUMBAI, 3 January, 2018 (GPN) : The novel is based on actual events known by Greek sources, which provides readers with detailed insights into the life of the great ruler, Sikander.
Madhusoodhan Naavalan, the author of ‘Sikandernama – Qissa I Sikander of Akbar’, has written the story of Sikander, known to the West as Alexander the Great. While basing it on the real life story of the great conqueror, Madhusoodhan Naavalan has modified it and the end product has embellishments, that are due to the author’s imagination.
The book deals with the achievements of Sikander, his conquest of Greece and defeat of The Persian Empire. In India, Sikander faced defeat by King Poru or Porus, and he returned to Babylon where he died.
The author points out that the greatness of Sikander was not just in his conquests of the known world of his time, but also in his desire to marry the greatness of the two civilisations of his time – the Greeks and the Persians. His untimely death prevented this, but even so the consequences of his conquests remain to this day.
