Many have been put off by the anti-Brahmin sentiments of this book. Before I start my review please allow me to tell you about the Asufa. So, landed in a great confusion: There is a good chance of people believing the author’s “pure imagination” as fact just because it is more believable than the original scripture or this is more reachable than the original scripture. It is a story of these two men, who build a contrast, that couldn’t be greater.

Asura: Tale Of The Vanquished

Ravan has a point though. I continued, Author had no clue asuta he was telling in every chapter, with an urgency to finish of this book, author had done great damage to the original version of Ramayana and went a step ahead to give a character certificate to Lord Rama.

However, as a story, writer does justice with its characters. Buku ini adalah kisah Ramayana dari sudut pandang Rahwana. And could it be an apt flip side of the great and glorious Ramayan?

A New Chapter: Asura. Tale of the vanquished. The story of Ravana and his people.

It is a work of pure fiction. In mainstream for lack of a better word versions of the epic — Ram is the hero while Ravana is the villain.

The locality which wins the bid to become Janak Desh and build Janak Mahal considers itself as truly blessed by the Lord Shri Ram himself. I am so flabbergasted while writing the review of this book. Truly astounding flow with powerful language.

English language makes its appeal further limited to the elite only who usually go by reason rather than by faith. However, as much as I have been able to deduce, it is a good book and a nice take on the so-called “evil’s” point of view. The lines below demonstrate not just the premise of the book, but the very structure of our society “. Well if he neelakanntan up with the depictions in mythology and argued on the basis of things presented thereit would have been good.


All these may sound anti-Rama but eventually all of these are truth.

I should’ve realized this long ago. Fantabulous I picked up the book because of my recent interest in Indian mythology; The Author makes a valiant effort of producing the mythology from the point of view of Ravana and a common man Bhadra who lived alongside Ravana.

What I thought could be better: May 21, at 8: Within the space of a paragraph, he would contradict himself. Mar 22, Sreejoni Nag rated it it was amazing.

Mountains lifted with a fingertip, child born out of fire, and morphing deities have created an impenetrable wall of dogma that have become the source of livelihood for many impostors and wanna-be saints.

This will surely force us to think twice about some characterswho are said, pictured and revered as God by the epic. Every minute detail is casted with utmost dedication.
