  • Description
    Baali and Sugreeva of the Vana Nara tribe were orphan brothers who were born in abject poverty and grew up as slaves like most of their fellow tribesmen. They were often mocked as the vanaras, the monkey men. Sandwiched between the never-ending war between the Deva tribes in the north and the Asura tribes in the south, the Vana Naras seemed to have lost all hope. But Baali was determined not to die a slave. Aided by his beloved brother, Sugreeva, Baali built a country for his people. The capital city, Kishkindha, became a beacon of hope for emancipated slaves from across the world. It was a city of the people, by the people, for the people, where there was no discrimination based on caste, creed, language or the colour of skin. For a brief period in history, it seemed as if mankind had found its ideal hero in Baali. But then fate intervened through the beautiful Tara, the daughter of a tribal physician. Loved by Baali and lusted after by Sugreeva, Tara became the cause of a fraternal war that would change history for ever. The love triangle between Baali, Tara and Sugreeva is arguably the world's first. Written by Anand Neelakantan who gave a voice to Ravana in Asura, Duryodhana in the Ajaya series and Sivagami in the Baahubali series, Vanara is a classic tale of love, lust and betrayal. Shakespearean in its tragic depth and epic in its sweep, Vanara gives voice to the greatest warrior in the Ramayana-Baali.

    Bali-perspective changer.

    What a book!
    I am happy to read this book. I am amazed.
    Yesterdays story in todays thought process. I have changed my perspective of looking things. I loved Tara and Bali.
    I guess all these years I was taught wrong lessons about Bali, Tara and Sugreeva.
    Maybe even about Ravana and Rama.
    (Asura)
    I hope to see Bali in Telugu soon.
    Anand Neelakantan must be appreciated for his wonderful work.

    Super!

    The book, like the author's previous novels, is great. But it is only recommended for open minded persons. This book is not for people who cannot listen a word against their good

    Terrific

    One of the best Gripping books that i have ever read. Finished off within 24 hours. The characters like Tara and Chemba are just out of the world. The wicked actions of Fate, the fruits of Lust, Greed, Trust, Naiveness, Progress are all bottled up in this 300 odd paged book. Each chapter taking us to a timespan beyond history, each chapter taking us through different emotions. I wept as i read through the last few pages, some chapters were filled with lots of action and drama. All over this i...

    Just wow!

    Gripping story line which gives different perspective of incidents and makes you think. Definitely engaging and highly recommended. It's simple language keeps you going and at times it may get a bit lagging. Still a good work on not so highly celebrated characters and their story from their viewpoints.

    Worth every penny

    This book gives you a Frank and different read all together, deconstructing the devas and asuras to normal human. Critically discuss the caste system which was prevalent in India along with humanly emotions and feelings.

    Not recommended at all

    the book is worst in very aspect . Tara , Bali's wife is considered to be a sati , a very pure lady . but the book tells her to be a characterless lady in the first half. this book represent Sugreev as very cunning or very crafty whereas Bali is shown as very great and characterful. it also shows Lord Ram and Hanumanji as a mere foolish and brainless .. this book is a curse to real mythology of India . such books must be banned.. please don't waste your money and time on it..
