Aavarana: The Veil is the story of an independent woman and her personal journey as she tries to uncover the truth about religion, caste, and creed in India.

Summary of the Book

Aavarana: The Veil by S. L. Bhyrappa is a story of a free-spirited and rebellious young woman, Lakshmi, who marries the man she is deeply in love with. Although Amir, her husband, requests her to convert to Islam, she reluctantly agrees. Despite her father being completely against the marriage, she breaks ties with him and changes her name to Razia. However, things change for the worse and she discovers a different side to Amir. He is not the progressive and liberal person she thought he was. He along with his family forces her into practicing Islam. This sets Lakshmi on a journey to uncover India’s history about religion, caste, and creed.

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...

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 their criticism of Islam even to this day.

However, all of this is in the form of a novel and the story and narration is really really good.
There is a sub-novel inside the novel which takes you back to 17th century India. That sub-novel part is the best. You get to know how much the history was suppressed and how we are idolizing the Islamic invaders & Jihadists as patriots and heroes.

However, the best part of the whole book is undoubtedly the narration of Kashi...
He captured the soul of Kashi and presented it wonderfully...

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 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.

Every Indian should read this book in order to understand the dark age our nation had to undergo due to the advent of Muslim rule in India.

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.
