Book Review : Asura Tale of the Vanquished

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
They say History is written by the victor perhaps thats true for mythology as well . Thats the premise of this book !

A wonderful story about the biggest villain but this time spoken from ravana's perspective . yet the story is just not about ravana but about his people about bhadra . the perfect name would really be bhadrayana . the story of the common man , his hardships , his victories (if any) and his failure . No matter who reads this book its just impossible to not fall in love with this character .

A very good attempt to humanize the gods and the so called Devil. Yet at some points i guess he does fail. ( i like amish for that reason , he is more logical than anand . but still anand does a better job :) )

A perfect book for some one who likes history,religion, mythology and fiction ...

P.S : North Indians and brahmins will be royally pissed off . so read on thy on own risk :P
