“Vyasa Bharathathile Yudhishttiran” (Yudhishttira in Vyasa Mahabharat) authored by Ranga Hariji, senior RSS Pracharak and former Akhil Bharatiya Boudhik Pramukh, and published by Kurukshethra Prakashan, was released on July 21, 2023, at Ottappalam, Palakkad district, Kerala. Releasing the book, Metroman E Sreedharan stated that Yudhishttira gave the message to uphold sathya and dharma. Hariji has accomplished the great mission of introducing the greatness of Mahabharata in most appropriate style by penning this book, his latest work. Metroman said, he was familiar with the name of Dharmaputhra, the other name of Yudhishttira), since his childhood. Later on he realised that both names belong to a single personality. Hariji introduces the character in the most apt manner.
Acknowledged Carnatic musician and playback singer Mannoor Rajakumaran Unni received the first copy from Metroman. He said, music is God and aging would not affect those who learn it. And, it gives them joy and bliss. Their words will carry eminence and greatness. Rajakumaran Unni remembered the graceful moments during his college days when he got opportunity to sing before Param Poojaneeya Guruji Golwalkar in Palakkad, thanks to the gracious intervention of Ranga Hariji. It was a Sangh programme and he could sing couple of songs.
Sri Hariji, the author, told that Yudhishttira is the only character who makes his presence felt and referred to in the entire 18 parvas of Mahabharata. He said that his endeavour was to prevent the society from getting misguided by the wrong notions being propagated against Mahabharat and the characters in it.
