    Got this book from the library for my 8 yr old son but realized that he is still not eligible to read this. Just when I was thinking of returning it and get another book, my husband started reading it. When he was near completion, he told me "leave whatever you reading now, and start reading this." I never thought that I will be able to read Gita because A) I am not into mythologies, and B) I always felt Gita is a very heavy book, and you need a lot of time, patience and intelligence to understa Got this book from the library for my 8 yr old son but realized that he is still not eligible to read this. Just when I was thinking of returning it and get another book, my husband started reading it. When he was near completion, he told me "leave whatever you reading now, and start reading this." I never thought that I will be able to read Gita because A) I am not into mythologies, and B) I always felt Gita is a very heavy book, and you need a lot of time, patience and intelligence to understand it. I truly admire Roopa Pai for writing this wonderful book, which not only helps children but it benefits adults as well. I picked up the book and started reading it, and after that there was no looking back. The book gave me the answer to all my questions, which knowingly or unknowingly I was searching for a long long time. Apart from the Shlokas of Gita, the examples given by Roopa from our day to day lives are so easy to relate and understand. For someone like me, who never thought of reading mythology, this came as a blessing from God almighty through Roopa. There are so many things in our everyday lives that we ignore or simply do not pay attention to, but they are very important for our own betterment, and are explained beautifully in this book, e.g. a thing as simple as praying and thanking god or the supreme power before every meal. In our so called hushed and ultra urban lives, we tend to forget things and start taking the privileges for granted. Nothing can be better than this book, to bring us all back to the ground and reality. Above all, what I liked the most about Gita and this book is that it talks about how to respect every religion because ultimately there is only one Supreme Power, no matter how and what we call it. if everyone understands this one simple thing, then there won't be any communal disturbance and violence, and people will stay in peace and harmony for ever. Sadly, everything has been distorted by human beings for their own selfish desires and greed, but there still is hope. For me, this book is life changing and I would strongly recommend it to everyone. Read it and understand the true meaning of life and the purpose of your own being in this earth.

    Anil Menon reviews the book on Goodbooks: "A.K. Ramanujan famously remarked that no Hindu reads the Mahabharata for the first time. Though the Bhagavad Gita is equally central in the Hindu’s moral imagination, I suspect few have read it even once. Roopa Pai’s book should help in correcting this state of affairs. It is a retelling of the Bhagavad Gita with a focus on teenagers. She has undertaken no small task, and for the most part, succeeded very well."

    Pretty good stuff.. got it for my little niece and ended up reading it myself :) Of course almost all of us know the plot but i liked the writing style. It’s presented in a clear no fluff way without losing personality.. There are bulleted summaries which were surprisingly refreshing to read. All in all, don’t let the title put you off.. if you like your Gita you’ll enjoy it.

    Have always wanted to try and explore The Gita. But never did it work. Thanks to Roopa Pai you made it. It's not only for children. I felt its for adults too. Wonderful and simple writing. Hats off Roopa and once again thank you for making me to understand our great Gita. Have always wanted to try and explore The Gita. But never did it work. Thanks to Roopa Pai you made it.

    'The Gita for Children' is the kind of book that you happen to come across by chance, casually start reading, and after getting intoxicated by the premise and the initial pages, you cast aside whatever you are currently reading to finish this wonder of a book. The title is a misnomer; don't be fooled by it. This book is not just 'for children', it's for every person of any age in every walk of life. I've frequently heard people complain about how difficult reading Gita is. It is hard, yes. Good p 'The Gita for Children' is the kind of book that you happen to come across by chance, casually start reading, and after getting intoxicated by the premise and the initial pages, you cast aside whatever you are currently reading to finish this wonder of a book. The title is a misnomer; don't be fooled by it. This book is not just 'for children', it's for every person of any age in every walk of life. I've frequently heard people complain about how difficult reading Gita is. It is hard, yes. Good persons and good books are always hard to read; you don't necessarily have to understand them on your first try. Engage with them quite often, and the meaning of their wisdom slowly starts to ooze out. Roopa Pai has solved that problem though, to an extent. She has explained the content as simply as it is humanely possibe. At the same time, she has also somehow managed to avoid diluting or watering down the complexity of it by oversimplification (that's why I use the words 'to an extent'). In other words, she has given a whole new meaning to the word 'lucid'. The second major point which works for the book is its light-hearted tone. While I understand Arjuna could not have possibly used the word 'BFF' for Krishna at that time, usages like this not only render a contemporary taste to the scenario, it also works as a breather in an otherwise serious volume. If your book title says 'for children', you have to keep the language accessible to children. I am an atheist by nature, a rather firm and provocative one at that. However, I don't see Gita as a religious book. In my perception, it's more of a management book than a spiritual one, a solid guide on 'how to' questions than a propagandist volume meant to pedal a certain religion or a certian god. Krishna may or may not have been a figment of fiction, but these words are certainly not. These advices are practicable and time-tested. People are constantly in awe of Gita, because it bloody well works! If you have not read Gita till date, this is a good starting point. Even if you've read some other version, I urge you to check this out too.

    So many people, from politicians to our own relatives tell us, we must do exactly these sets of things or behave in exactly this manner to be a Hindu, or even to be a good person, and we often gullibly fall for this.

Reading this book will let you see how accommodating and friendly the Lord of the religion himself is. He lays down different paths for progress and acknowledges that the journey can vary depending on the innate nature of different people. And at the end of the Gita, even after breaking down the whole thing, he doesn't command. He only says 'ponder over this and do as you choose.' It is a shame that a doctrine that is this broad and non-restricting often gets painted in a narrow dogmatic light. We should read this book, if for no better reason, just to see how unsubstantial these claims are.

    Lucid and very good presentation of Gita. One who wants to introduce himself to actual gita should start from this.. As the name suggest it's for children but it's for all since all of us are like children when comes to religious philosophical understanding. So who have not read any book regarding gita Or tried to read but could not connect with it then they must go for this. Lucid and best gita interpretation... Lucid and very good presentation of Gita.

    A great start to the Holy Bhagavad Gita (or just Gita, for short) for kids and adults alike. Roopa has tried hard and mostly succeeded in making complex constructs and philosophies relatable to everyday life and living, including school and studies. You'll find this a quick and breezy read and would want to visit specific pages for reference later on. Highly recommended.

    I picked up this book at a time when I was keenly looking for a spiritual read. I am happy that this book satiated my thirst. It is a good book on Gita which can be equally read by Adults and children. The Gita has been explained in the simplest way possible for better understanding. This is a book that needs the luxury of time to understand what it entails.

    I can say that it is one of the most interesting books I have ever read. I don't think if I would have ever read Gita if this book wasn't there. It is a very easy read and helped me relate to my personal life and its challenges. A must read book that I would highly recommend to everyone.

    Not only for children. Adults also can dive into this book to know about the lessons from the Gita. Written in simple English, with examples from day to day life of children. The categorization and division of the topics made it more interesting.

    The "For Children" in the name does NOT imply exclusivity at all. It's a fascinating primer for this important work and I quite enjoyed the simplifications, the fun examples and the general, non-preachy, sweet tone of the book!
