    Description
  • He was the guru of Bhishma Pitamah.
  • An avatar of Vishnu but a disciple of Shiva.
  • And he shall be the martial guru of Kalki, the last Avatar in this Yuga.

  • When the Chandravanshi emperor Arjun begins expanding his empire to cover the entire world, the Asuras hit back with an insidious plan. Caught in the crossfire is Raam, the son of rishi Yamdagni and scion of the Bhargava clan. Will the machinations of Asura, Naga and Urag tribes affect the Brahmin boy and his family? Will the political intrigues of Nabhi-varsh let Bhargava Raam find his destiny or push him towards a future he never envisioned?

    This is the story of a man who rose to the level of divinity to establish a fair and just society- the story of the making of a legend.

    The Immortal !!!

    It's probably the best book out there on not so popular incarnation of Lord Vishnu.I always thought Parshu-Raam is the angry form of Dharma.Well,the writer's approach in explaining the events that lead Raam,a brahmin boy to become the Parshu-Raam who killed the mighty king Kartavirya Arjuna is quite impressive.
    Even if you're not so great fan of mythology,
    you would enjoy it,cause it's no less than a
    fictional adventurous movie if you have good imaginary
    skills.
    The author's style of writing ...

    loved this book...!!!

    simply loved this book... It flows smoothly as a continuation to the first book vishwamitra, and not only tells in detail the story of parshuraam but also how both these sages are linked to each other. The in-depth research done by Dr. Vineet reflects clearly in the content and also in the minutest details with which every scene is described..that you can almost watch it in your mind. Another thing I really liked in the book is the message conveyed through the dialogues of the characters..a l...

    An action packed performance by Parshu-Raam & Vineet

    The book builds the character perfectly along with various simultaneous plots. While reading this book you could actually imagine many of the actions happening in front of your own eye. The book is totally action packed and gives an insight on the situations which made Raam a "Parshu-Raam". Author has very well delivered the message in the book that "The choices you make define your destiny". The book is perfect blend of mythology and fiction. Hats off to the author.

    Indian mythology seen in a new & insightful light!

    Many Indians will know of the ten avatars of Lord Vishnu but seldom do any of us know any avatar aside of Lord Ram and Krishna. This book is the life story of Parshuraam, the warrior avatar of Lord Vishnu.
    The Legend of Parshuraam methodically retraces his life beginning with a perspective of how things had shaped up in the generation that ruled prior to him in Nabhivarsh (older name for the Indian subcontinent). The book also beautifully highlights the softer elements of the man who is best...

    This book is a treasure trove of information!

    This book is a treasure trove of information for all those who love mythology! Vineet is a great friend (we went to the same school) and that makes this book very special. I have read his first book, Vishwamitra, and have now finished reading this second one. That besides, I have also been an avid reader of his blog: decodehindumythology.blogspot.com. He is a talented writer and is thorough with his research. 'Legend of Parshuraam' tracks the story of Raam, the scion of Bhargava clan, the Bra...

    Simple, Gripping and Interesting Read

    The Legend of Parshu-Raam, Simple, gripping and interesting read.
    Everything about this book is pure perfection, right from the detailed description of each character to each event which one can visualize while reading (Pushpak vimana’s description is bang on) and thorough research of un-touched side of legendary action hero which makes this book a tightly bound storyline. There are a lot of back stories. This is much needed for people who are not familiar with them.
    The story goes on tell h...

    Gripping, thrilling and enchanting!!!

    Indian mythology is limitless. Epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata revolves around the leads of Lord Ram and Krishna. Very little is told about the other characters who play equally vital role in the formation of these epics. Dr. Vineet with his penchant for mythology has done justice to a strong and vibrant character of Parshuraam. Contrast to what is known as Angry young man with inhuman behaviour in the Indian mythology, this books depicts Parshuraam as a perfect human being with loving, c...

    Excellent work

    The Legend of Parshuraam is an excellent work by Dr Vineet Aggarwal.The book gives a detailed insight into the life of Lord Parshuraam, who inspite of being an incarnation of Lord Vishnu hasn't been celebrated like the other avatars. The author's research is evident in the details of the times and events. The book not only narrates the story of Lord Parshuraam's life but also provides a great deal of information on the power play and political ambitions of the kshatriyas, nagas,asuras,rakshas...
