Story of the book-

Strikes don’t win wars. Timings do.

The genre of this book is mythological thriller which has a blend of modern day science. The story started with the life of Partha who was a student of Indian Institute of Applied Physics (IIAP). He was the youngest student among all his classmates to clear the exam and was really talented but theoretical studies never fascinated him. He always liked to ask questions to the teachers which were irrelevant to the topic taught in class. Everybody

The Whispering Dwapara is a blend of mythology and modern science. It's Rishi's first book, but it's well written.

The story starts when a man named joins the Institute of Applied Science. He is an intelligent and talented man. He is on a mission to complete his dad's unfinished project. One day while working

One of the best Mythology Sci-Fi Thriller which I read till date. It's Rishi's first book, but I must say the author has left no words for me to explain how good I feel after reading it out. I just love all the characters not just one in particular. The story is based on the synthesis of ancient mythology. You can see a mixture of Gurus and Professors, Kings and Scientists. All of them are fighting against dark forces thats Asuras.
In start of the book we get to see Parth who cleared exam and

A story that takes you to a different era.A blend of science, weapons and suspense. The toughest and the most liked thing about the book for me is the seamless writing , blending these genres and creating a world that enthralls you.

Starting from the cover of the book is vibrant and shows some Sanskrit Shlokas on it. With the cover, one can make an idea about the intensity of the story. As it reads A Myth Sci-Fi thriller, and so the book reveals inside. The title couldn't be more perfect and the cover is very attractive and awe-inspiring.

The story starts with a mixture of modern and mythology plot and takes us to a kingdom, which is hidden from all the satellites and radars.

My first book of 2020. And I am very happy to have started with this one. This book amalgamates the interlinking of modern science with ancient vedic knowledge. The importance of vedic mantras, their chantings and the importance of the vibrations produced by them is beautifully explained in sync to the modern Acoustics and Applied Physics.

The plot is about how few selected people find themselves in a new land and wierd surroundings after some unexpected events. Later they learn that this is the

Author has written an amazing story and has impressive narrations style. Title goes well with the the story narrated. Author is successful in keeping the story interesting and fascinating till the end.
Story uses a lot myhlogical names/charecters but has no relation with actual epic Mahabharata.
Plot starts slowly and starts gaining pace as pages are turned. Plot keeps changing and appear new with each new twist in tale. A lot of instances in story reminds us of Harry Potter due to similarities

This is a very beautiful book with a Indian mythic touch to its taste. If I would have a short review then I would have said it 'Vedic version of Harry Potter'
Not perfectly but at some points I felt that I am reading a Indian or vedic version of Harry Potter.

As this title suggest "The Whispering Dwapara" a reader will no doubt feel that the book is a mythological one.
My first opinion about this book before beginning this read was the book might be based on a story of dwapar Yuga but after going through few pages the suspense was to high.
The story begins at Indian Institute of Applied Physics, (Kolkata).

Vedic Seers were the scientists of their times. The ancient Indian Vedic texts are the oldest texts in the world and contain treasures of knowledge in them.
The entire science and technology today is based on the mathematics invented by ancient Vedic scholars.

"The Whispering Dwapara" is a gripping story that is based on ancient Vedic science and connects to modern science. In other words a perfect blend of mythology and sci-fic.
Both the genre's are totally different but the author has managed
