Karna's Alter Ego (Abridged)
by Surendra Nath
Vasu is a loser, a talented loser like Karna of Mahabharata. Misfortune hounds him wherever he goes. Despite being gifted, he is denied all credits in life, rejected in love, misses a medal in the Asian games, gets caught for telling an innocent lie, and is not promoted. Will he, finally, break the jinx? Will he win the endgame? This is not a mythological tale but a contemporary take on mythology.
