Book Excerpt :

The epic tale of victory and defeat... The story of the Ramayana had been told innumerable times. The enthralling story of Rama, the incarnation of God, who slew Ravana, the evil demon of darkness, is known to every Indian. And in the pages of history, as always, it is the version told by the victors, that lives on. The voice of the vanquished remains lost in silence. But what if Ravana and his people had a different story to tell? The story of the Ravanayana had never been told. Asura is the epic tale of the vanquished Asura people, a story that has been cherished by the oppressed outcastes of India for 3000 years. Until now, no Asura has dared to tell the tale. But perhaps the time has come for the dead and the defeated to speak. "For thousands of years, I have been vilified and my death is celebrated year after year in every corner of India. Why? Was it because I challenged the Gods for the sake of my daughter? Was it because I freed a race from the yoke of caste-based Deva rule? You have heard the victor's tale, the Ramayana. Now hear the Ravanayana, for I am Ravana, the Asura, and my story is the tale of the vanquished." "I am a non-entity-invisible, powerless and negligible. No epics will ever be written about me. I have suffered both Ravana and Rama - the hero and the villain or the villain and the hero. When the stories of great men are told, my voice maybe too feeble to be heard. Yet, spare me a moment and hear my story, for I am Bhadra, the Asura, and my life is the tale of the loser." The ancient Asura empire lay shattered into many warring petty kingdoms reeling under the heel of the Devas. In desperation, the Asuras look up to a young saviour-Ravana. Believing that a better world awaits them under Ravana, common men like Bhadra decide to follow the young leader. With a will of iron and a fiery ambition to succeed, Ravana leads his people from victory to victory and carves out a vast empire from the Devas. But even when Ravana succeeds spectacularly, the poor Asuras find that nothing much has changed for them. It is when that Ravana, by one action, changes the history of the world.

Book Short Summary:

Unlike another tale of ‘love’, that includes ‘duplicity’, followed by hates, and eventually all these circumstances landing to war, this is the original one. It can be regarded as blueprint of all stories that include ‘cycle’ of love and hates. It is the stories of all stories. It is a master one. Interestingly, it is also basic to astrology. The nature and other characteristics of planets can be judged by using basic line of this one. Soma, the moon god is the hero of the recital, while Brihaspati played the role of antagonist. Basically, it defines the war among planets which took place in very olden days. It however, in every respect divert from several encounters that have been cooked between Asura and Devas, as it deflects from following basic norms of all war - good over evil. In other stories, it easy to guess who is right? or who is wrong? Generally, facts always remain the same, Asura are evil, While God are good. But, this narrative is quite disparate. It is very hard to determine who hold the hand of righteousness. However, the war took into account both Asura and Devas but which much divergence, for example Soma who always aids Deva parted with Asura, while Rudra, the energy of Shiva who is generally hailed by Asura parted with Devas.

Book Short Summary:

Christians believe that religion began when God created human beings and revealed himself to them. But is there scholarly evidence for this belief? In the nineteenth century academic world a stormy debate took shape over the origin of religion. Scholars explored the ancient languages of mythology and then considered evolutionary anthropology. A dominant view emerged that religion began with animism -- the reverent honoring of spirits -- and from there evolved into higher forms, from polytheism on to monotheism. However, scholars Andrew Lang and Wilhem Schmidt contended there were cultures throughout the world -- pygmy people in Africa and Asia, certain Australian Aboriginal groups and Native American tribes -- that originated as monotheistic, acknowledging the existence of one supreme God who created the world and holds people accountable for living morally upright lives. The debate wore on, and Schmidt, a member of the Catholic order and a priest, was accused (without evidence) of letting his faith interpret the facts. By the mid-twentieth century a silent consensus formed among scholars not to discuss the origin and evolution of religion any further. The discoveries of Lang and Schmidt have since been largely ignored. However, the evidence on which these scholars based their conclusion of monotheism is still out there. In the Beginning God attempts to educate Christians about the debate on this topic, the facts that were accepted and those that were ignored, and the use to which Christians can put all of this material in making a case for the truth of Christianity.

Book Short Summary:

Gandhara is a name central to Buddhist heritage and iconography. It is the ancient name of a region in present-day Pakistan, bounded on the west by the Hindu Kush mountain range and to the north by the foothills of the Himalayas. ‘Gandhara’ is also the term given to this region’s sculptural and architectural features between the first and sixth centuries CE. This book re-examines the archaeological material excavated in the region in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and traces the link between archaeological work, histories of museum collections and related interpretations by art historians. The essays in the volume underscore the diverse cultural traditions of Gandhara – from a variety of sources and perspectives on language, ethnicity and material culture (including classical accounts, Chinese writings, coins and Sanskrit epics) – as well as interrogate the grand narrative of Hellenism of which Gandhara has been a part. The book explores the making of collections of what came to be described as Gandhara art and reviews the Buddhist artistic tradition through notions of mobility and dynamic networks of transmission. Wide ranging and rigorous, this volume will appeal to scholars and researchers of early South Asian history, archaeology, religion (especially Buddhist studies), art history and museums.

Book Short Summary:

Something is rotten in the state of Amravati A mysterious ailment afflicts Indrah, reducing the omnipotent king of the gods to, well, not quite the man he used to be. To add to his woes, the Holy Trinity threaten to fire him for dereliction of duty. But Indrah's troubles wilt in comparison to those of his asura counterpart, Bali, ruler of Tripura. Even as Indrah's its fretting over his delicate health, an assassination attempt on Bali leaves the asura on the brink of death. There is only one thing that can save both these men from certain doom: amrit, the mythical nectar. But to secure it, the gods and the asuras will have to cooperate and churn the Ocean of Milk together... Will Indrah and Bali be able to put aside their ancient enmity, or will old rivalries keep them from pulling off this epic feat? Bali and the Ocean of Milk reimagines the eternal conflict between the gods and the asuras in a whacky thriller littered with bad jokes and corpses. EXTRACT The story of 'Bali and the Ocean of Milk' has been derived from an old myth of the now lost Hurrian civilization, which traces its origins to the banks of the Euphrates in northern Mesopotamia. The novel reimagines the eternal conflict between the Hurrian gods and their sworn enemies, the asuras, in a wacky thriller littered with bad jokes and corpses. Here's an extract from the book: Chapter 1: An Evening in Amravati The rays of the setting sun streamed through the tall crystal windows and lit up Urvashi's pretty oval face. Waves of silken hair dyed blonde in deference to the latest fashion, cascaded over her pale, shapely shoulders. Slender arms, diamond-encrusted bracelets on either wrist, were crossed over her full breasts. She was perched upon a blue velvet couch, her long bare legs dangling over its edge. As she swung them to and fro, toes brushing against the tiger skin carpet below, her golden anklets tinkled out a perky melody. She was a sight worthy of the gods - except that the god sitting opposite her did not seem to know this. She mooned at him with her large, blue eyes, fluttered her eyelashes, pouted, preened and sighed - elementary techniques that every apsara was taught during induction training. But her efforts had little effect on the god for whom they were intended. He continued to sit listlessly on his bed, a glum expression on his puffed face. Urvashis pout grew deeper. 'I' sorry, Indy, but this is just not happening.'Indrah did not reply. 're you even listening to me?'Urvashi sniffed. 'hings can' go on like this, you know. It' about time you did something about it.''es, yes, I know,'Indrah muttered. I just need a little more time...am trying hard.'Tying hard!'Urvashi exclaimed. You have to get hard, darling -not try.'Indrah winced while Urvashi chattered away in her sweet, girlish voice. I mean do you even remember the last time when that happened? That was like two hundred years ago. The day you killed that asura ... what was his name now umm...Vira Vita''ritra,'Indrah said under his breath. 'Vitra -right! That's the one. I knew it was something starting with a V. I still remember the day. You had gone out for the final battle and there I was sitting all by myself, worried stiff, when I heard the apsaras going -Vritra is dead! Victory to Lord Indrah!" Indrah grunted. We had such a wonderful time that night after the victory party. Urvashi sighed. You remember, love? Indrah grunted again. Urvashi stood up scowling and hurled an ivory comb to the ground. It shattered into pieces as her voice rose to a shrill pitch. Do you realize that we haven't made love one single time since that night? Do you? It's been two hundred years for heaven's sake and it's driving me up the wall. Come on, Indy darling -what's wrong with you?' Indrah sighed. There was no denying that she was right -he was in bad shape. Rolls of fat swaddled his hips. The taut muscles of his arms had turned into flaccid bags and the chiselled jaw-line, along which Sachi used to love running her fingers during their courtship days, had disappeared into a pair of pulpy chins. A lock of hair fell over his forehead. He brushed it back, wincing when his fingers touched the bald patch on top. It had surreptitiously replaced his once luxuriant mane and was now clearly visible unless he switched on his halo - the light dazzling anyone who looked him in the face. But these days, he realized that even this simple act drained him of energy quite quickly. In short, Indrah looked and felt like an elderly uncle - not the Almighty King of the Devas, Lord of Amravati, Scourge of the Asuras, Shatterer of Citadels. What was worse was that people had started noticing it...the corridors of the palace were abuzz with whisperings of the King's decrepit condition. Many of the lesser gods had even begun to talk openly about it. Soon he started cutting down on public appearances conducting most of his work from his inner chambers. It wouldn't be long before someone started asking uncomfortable questions on why the king spent most of his time inside his bedroom instead of the court...

Book Short Summary:

It is hard enough for anyone other than a dedicated scholar to read all 18 cantos of the great epic Mah?bh?rata let alone the R?m?ya?a, Bh?gavata and the many Pur???s as well. In view of this and particularly today’s fast-paced life, this book presents the stories of characters from all the books of Hindu Mythology in a compact English version. While reading a Telugu book titled ‘P?rva G?th? Lahari’, the author was surprised to discover many fascinating stories and substories even in books with which he was quite familiar. He was so impressed that he decided to make the stories accessible to a wider audience of Indians as well as the Indian diaspora by writing an English version based on the Telugu book. A few examples of surprising details will illustrate the point: • Several great warriors on the Kaurava side in the Mah?bh?rata war were known to be invincible to anyone in the P?n?ava forces. The means of making the greatest of them, Bh?shma disarm himself was devised several lifetimes earlier in Brahma’s court. • The wife of Sage Atri was able to turn the Trim?rtis into infants, and another ordinary woman was able to stop the dawn of a new day due to the spiritual power from being Pativratas. • Even Vish?u was not immune from accountability for His actions, facing hardships in one incarnation from ??pas given to Him in a previous incarnation. Whether one is inclined to read the whole book as a nonfiction narrative or use it as a reference to check particular stories, there is much here to savour.

The stupendous work by Kavalam Balachandran, in which he endeavours to demythify and reconstrue the saga of Ramayana from a diametrically opposite perspective, is a landmark event. Indeed, it is the fruit of a long haul of research, imagination and logical thought process by which faces, places and events are reoriented to concoct a plausible narrative. Do read it to the end, as this genre of books does not happen every now and then. -Dr. Alex Paikada Writer, Historian and Poet

Book Short Summary:

Agni is one of the ashtadikpalakas who protects the South-east direction (Agneya). He occupies the second position after Devendra and is the chief deity of the Rig Veda. The Maruth devas are born out of Agni. Agni is present in every living being or thing and is the energy that causes movement. He is Varuna’s brother and is influenced by Vayu Deva. According to Vishnu Purana, he is the eldest son of Brahmadeva. Agnideva was once cursed by sage Bhrigu because of which he entered the ocean and performed tapas. The world was on the brink of disaster without Agni. Brahmadeva had to implore Agni to go back to the world and resume his duties. Agnideva once lost his immense power of digestion when King Swethaki performed a great yajna lasting a hundred years. As suggested by Brahmadeva, he had to burn the Khandava forest in order to regain his power. In spite of burning down a large part of Sahadeva’s army, Agni stopped his burning spree on Sahadeva’s plea and helped the Pandavas to complete the rajasuyayajna. Devendra had once committed a sin of killing a Brahmin. When Brahma divided the sin into four parts, Agni accepted one of the parts in order to free Devendra. Agni appears in the Ramayana when he himself offered a pot of payasam to the childless Dasharatha. Later, when Sita was put through a test of fidelity, he announced to the world that she was the most faithful woman of her time. Parameswara blessed Agni saying that he would never have to fear death. Agni Deva is all powerful, present in all, sustaining and protecting all the time.

Book Short Summary:

We have been inspired by lots of superhero comics published mostly by the western countries where the core of the origination of any superhero is POWERS. And speaking about powers if we draw attention to our culture and ancient reference holy books they speak about power vast in the universe. Due to the complexity of these powers we have been ignoring the deepest secrets hidden in our ancient mythological stories. Hence the story that I bring forward is that powers which existed in our mythological stories or mentioned in the Hindu Vedas have been brought into today's world and a chosen lucky person receives it accidentally. This superhero is called Vajrayudha since he resembles Lord Indra’s weapon Vajra and is more powerful than that now. But after possessing the great powers faces lots of powerful super villains and highly intelligent people whose knowledge of science is bigger or equivalent to our superhero's powers. The entire story board is based on the part in Puranas starting from our great Hindu gods who had faced big battles with the devil (Raskhasa and Asuras). Lord Indra battles Asura Vrita where he receives the mighty weapon from his loyal devotee Sage Dadhichi called Vajrayudha. Such a powerful weapon is a combination of 4 powerful weapons. The protagonist of this story receives the same powers and is a human manifestation of the weapon hence called Vajrayudha.
