it was amazing

Vishwamitra is Dr Vineet's début book but the writing style and narration convey the maturity of an erudite writer. The book is an easy read and can be completed in one sitting by most readers also because despite not being a thriller the book is interesting and keeps the reader engaged all throughout. Though the overarching theme is mythology, it is to author's credit that the book manages to convey a deeper meaning that human spirit should know no bounds. As you read through the pages protagonist conveys the indomitable spirit. Vishwamitra as a character is not unknown to readers of mythology we have grown up knowing him as an angry seer whose meditation was interrupted by menaka. The exposition manages to convey the finer nuances of how the transformation to Vishwamitra would have taken place. The way the finer creative details have been build into the plot are subtle yet beautiful. As you flip through the pages you appreciate the vast amount of research and author's signature style of correlating mythology and science. It is these nuggets that make it a pleasurable read. The beauty of menaka-Vishwamitra union is tasteful and esthetic.
All in all a wonderful read with meticulous writing
