All Hindus should read this book

This book covers the brutal murders happened during the Muslim rule in India, After reading book I felt like why History was boring in the class. This book really provides details of Kashi Vishwanath Temple and many other. Better to read this than reading MADEUP history in schools.

Warning: Mind Altering material

I picked this book up, as i had heard my Kannada friends talk about Byrappa. Once i started reading it, i could not put it down.
Taking off from a relatively simple concept of an inter faith marriage, it takes you a an journey of discovery. What is our cultural identity? It challenges concepts that you have been force fed and unveils a conspiracy by the Leftist Historians.
Extensively researched, the book comes with a huge list of citations, necessary because the time and again, your brainwashed mind will tell you to dismiss this as mere right wing propaganda.

A book that exposes the Marxist Historians and their school of thought

I have heard about S L Byrappa and his writings from my Kannada friends. Since i didn't know Kannada I never read his books.
And finally this book came out. And the better news is that it was translated by one of my favorite bloggers Sandeep Balakrishna of 'sandeepweb'...

Book was really really good... It didn't feel like a translation... Language is simple as well...
The basic theme of the book is to expose the hypocrisy of Left-liberals and their school of thought. It shows how they have suppressed the atrocities done by Islamic rulers in medieval India and how they continue to be silent in

A Must read for all book lovers!

This is one of the best literary work of S L Bhyrappa, The story is very gripping, i loved the way the story shapes and then moves with many turns and twists. The follow of the story is superb.
Bhyrappa has done extensive research for this book, it has all the reference from which this book is inspired or referred.

Must Read !

The author has done a great job combining two different era's and getting the facts with humungous references and research.
This has to be read in broad mind to enlighten oneself with history and its current pre notions carried by different set of people in the society.
Bhyrappa always gives the reader the intellect to understand beyond boundaries.

And thanks to prompt delivery by FK :-)

Must Read!!

One of the Best Books i have read in the recent times.. Sandeep B has done full justice in translating the original work of Shri Bhyrappa.

As described by the author, The story has been wonderfully written without compromising on any historical Facts. and the storyline itself has been kept so intresting despite the work actually being a Historical one, it classifies this work into a masterpiece.

The writer was completely succesfull in his intention of creating a Historically Accurate Storyline.

A book every Indian must read

Dr. S.L.Bhyrappya's Aavarana is an account of history in the form of friction. As the novel unfold I was drawn to the past and the present repeatedly in time. Indian history has been re-written many times over to make it more presentable, more secular. The text books have been distorted to suit the political whims and fancies. Road and cities have been named after rulers who have committed unpardonable crimes in the past. We are a victim of this perverted politician and writers. All this is beautifully brought out , with references in the form of a bibliography in the novel itself.
