  • Description

    This is the Tamil version of the book, Asura - Tale of the Vanquished, the debut novel written by Anand Neelakantan.

    Summary of the Book

    Asura tries to break the mundane practice of history being narrated by winners. Combining mythology, religion, and history, Asura narrates the tale from Ravana and Bhadra's perspectives. It describes how the Asura community was more open-minded than the orthodox Deva coterie, which was greatly biased. From the stories of Mahabali, Vamana and Sita’s Agni-Pareeksha to Jatayu’s meeting with Ravana, Anand Neelakantan unveils a plethora of human emotions behind these stories and rationally presents a new outlook for the readers. The book has topped several bestseller lists, including the 2012 Crossword list and the bestseller list of CNN-IBN.

    Nice

    The paper quality of the book is worst. I'm buying it for 400 rs and you(publisher) giving some cheap quality book. I recommend don't buy it if you want to keep this book in your special collection for long time. it's not a worth the quality for 400 rs.


    The story line was awesome and narrated very well.

    Asura - Tamil version

    I got the book so that my mom also could read it, but alas she was not to used to this particular documentary style of writing . (I kinda felt that the essence is little bit reduced in the Tamil version ),

    That all said, this book is a piece of masterstroke, makes you question "why couldn't history have been like this?" .
    The narrative between "The hero", "The Protagonist" & "The common man" is so enthralling that u get lost in their worries & life .
    A good read for a everybody (except No...
