A Gripping and Disturbing ride back in time

"Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it" is what prompted me to read AAVARANA. Fantastic experience reading it. Every time I sat to read I was jolted and transported back in time, gripping and disturbing ride it was. HISTORY is bloodier than any fiction and lies perpetrated on us is just disgusting. Switching between fiction & history using "play within play" technique this novel deals with the Mughal history particularly Aurangazeb and gives a deep insight into realities of his time. Aavarana was sold out even before its release in February 2007. The novel went on to create a record in the Indian literary world by witnessing 10 reprints within five months of its release. Aavarana is the result of author's search for truth about history. He has stated: "I have referred to hundreds of history books before writing the novel. However, if anyone has doubts about the facts can refer to the books I have listed in my book. Out of my interest, I have studied history and my findings have resulted in a creative piece of work. I am fed up with debates and discussions on Aavarana. Allow me to think on something else".

avarana

I have read Marathi transkation of the book. The study Dr. Bhyrappa has done tries to make the novel 'avarana free'. As narrated by Dr. Bhyrappa in his writeup before starting the novel (mentioned as 'pravesh' in the Marathi translation by Uma Kulkarni)"Being free from history is as mature as getting something from history".[Marathi version-Itihasakadun milavanyaitakach, tyachyakadun sodavun ghena de paripakwatech dyotak aahe]. That speaks a lot. I am overhelmed by the study and genius of this great author.

A must read Book

Amazingly written book on how history and how it is (mis)taught in our schools and so on and so forth. One would be just blown away by reading just 2 pages of Preface (Pravesha). I think its difficult for an average man to describe how good this book is, considering the amount of work author has put in it. Hats off!
