The interesting thing to note is that whether it is a God or an incarnation of a deity in human form, aka an Avatār, there was also a human element involved in these stories.

I picked up this book due to the concept of the book. When I read the blurb, it seemed unique and I am glad that I picked it up. I will briefly summarise the blurb. The book meets two extremes ends like it’s based on concept of Devas and Asuras and at the same time, book belongs to sci-fi genre. That impressed me a lot. The core story is an old person, two soldiers from Indian army, two NRIs and a mysterious sage from Himalaya are together in a mysterious adventure in south India. Read the book ...more

The concept of the book is really intriguing yet fascinating to read. Mythology, Philosophy, and Sci-fi blended together in the right composure to delight the readers. One by one introduction of the characters and the dig into their past life, switching from one world to another world made a bit difficult to focus on the plot.

The very first book in the genre that I call 'Dharmic Fantasy Adventure' as far as my reading awareness goes. The simple language belies the depth of the theme. The plot takes a surprisingly (and comfortingly) dharmic turn whenever our anticipation is that of what we have fed upon prior to the book. The kind that will leave a long-lasting imprint upon the mind. ...more

The book starts like a regular book with simple events. I thought it's about a wandering samdhi and his exploration. But the book takes a 360° degree turn and amazed me . It turn out to be a mythological fiction with deeper meaning and darker truths lurking in background.
The plot ,the narration and character sketches are Brilliant beyond words . This book left me longing for more and at loss of words.

The book starts with a mysterious man arriving at Srirangapura. As Srirangapura is not a destination for any tourist its rare to see any visitor. Moreover this new visitor does not seem like a normal human, he had a spiritual aura around him and so the villagers assumed that this person must be a 'Sadhu'. On the other hand the village of Srirangapura was facing some sudden deaths of cattle and goats every month from constantly for two years and the reason for the deaths were unknown. .
