    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.

    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 s...

    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 brainwa...

    The book that tries to uncover the viel

    SL Bhyrappa questions the hypocricy of the left based historians whose agenda is to generally mask the mis-deeds of the mughal kingdom. This best seller in kannada is well translated into simple english by Sandeepji.

    The youth, instead of wasting their hard earned money into stupid bollywood movies and IPL cricket matches, could as well buy these books and circulate them to a wider audience so that certain healthy debates can be initiated.
    Unless we learn form our historical mistakes, hist...
