Bhyrappa is one of the foremost Indian novelists writing in Kannada, eagerly read by the people and fiercely fought over by the critics. Parva is acknowledged to be his greatest work. Non-Kannadigas who have read it in its Hindi and Marathi translations consider it one of the masterpieces of modern Indian literature.

It is a transformation of an ancient legend into a modern novel. In this process, it has gained rational credibility and a human perspective. The main incident, the Bharata war, symbolic of the birthpangs of a new world-order, depicts a heroic but vain effort to arrest the disintegration and continue the prevailing order.

It is viewed from the stand points of the partisan participants and judged with reference to the objective understanding of Krishna. Narration, dialogue, monologue and comment all are employed for its presentation. Shot through with irony, pity and understanding objectivity, the novel ends with the true tragic vision of faith in life and hope for mankind.
