Asura author Anand Neelakantan ð 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 vanuished remains lost in silence But what if Ravana and his people had a different story to tell The story of the Ravanayana has never been told Asura is the epic tale of the vanuished Asura people a story that has been cherished by the oppressed castes of India for years Until now no Asura has dared to tell the tale But perhaps the time has come for the dead and the de. This is the worst literary creation by any fiction writer I have read many pathetic books but this one will surely top that list I have read the novel and found it full of utter garbage and punctured narrative full of self imposed assumptions of the author that shows hehhas come far away from reality The book is a work of fiction but it has done everything to mislead the readers in every possible way I strongly recommend everyone not to read this work characters ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Anand Neelakantan

Anand Neelakantan ✓ 3 read 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 from them It is then that Ravana by one action changes the history of the world. The book didn't seem as author s debut Truly astounding flow with powerful languageAuthor seems to be a very capable writerBut it was very disappointing to see such a capable person twisting the original Ramayana and have compromised too much on the facts This may be about Ravana's perspective but it doesn't demand the twisting of Ramayana facts For instance Rama's life as per Ramayana is 11000 years But the author has portrayed the incidents sprawling across a period of 70 yearsNow if the uestion is around if human life can be that long then research should be done on what evolution could have done rather than changing the timeline to some believable number the author pleases The war scene is highly compromised to put Rama in bad light and Ravana in goodMany other facts are comfortably ignored to put Ravana in good lightThis reaches a wider audience than the original Valmiki's scripture There is a good chance of people believing the author's pure imagination as fact just because it is believable than the original scripture or this is reachable than the original scriptureMany myths can be twisted as we likebut Ramayana is not a myth It is a scripted epic which has too many myths surrounding Even considering the epic to be just a fiction and not a real happening still we don't have the right to twist the tale as we pleaseIf the author had a fair eye to understand the script of Valmiki as it is and then made the story with Ravana's perspective it would have been the truly Asura storyWith that kind of expectation I picked the book but was disappointedI don't think talking from Ravana's perspective is wrong but twisting the facts as we would like to hear so there are some anti brahmin anti ramayana arguments is not acceptableSuch a capable author could have moral responsibility of researching before taking his story to the worldBut this inspires me to understand 24000 slokas of Ramayana in detail before judging about the bookNevertheless the language and story telling is truly enjoyable
