Jai Shri Ram
The will definitely turn out to be a great movie. Trust me on this, very few books resonate with the experience with gives you a feeling that lingers in your throat & mind the moment you reach midway across the book.
I felt the same way while reading this. Though a fiction, there have been lots of traces that leads to stark reality accompanied with deep research & explanations.
The way it has been written & the climax which gives a feeling that, the story will make a refined series will undoubtedly touch your hearts.
Moreover, the humor content adds exuberance to the overall book.
Cover is enthralling. It's beautiful, refined & well defined with the plot at hand. I've read both the editions, old & new one & trust me it was worth it. The trident picturesque clearly explains the fantasy & dream aspects that are going to be presented in the book. The way Lord ram carries his bow & shots an arrow is worth watching. The fathom less war & battle cry depicted is just amazing. The soft touch adds another feather to the cap.
At first, the title maynot sound appealing to the ears, but trust me folks never judge a book by its title. Just like the folklore goes, 'never judge a book by its cover.'
The similarity goes undefined in this context as well.
The title goes in apt with the story in hand, well defined with the story written in detail, the explanations given across every segment of the book. Even the minutest detail has been explained with the figment of imagination satiating the curiosity of the readers goes in par excellence of the mature writing exhibited in this book.
Theme consists of gameplay, politics, mystery, suspense, copious amount of humour, change in society, friendship, love, happiness, joy, sadness, war, suffering, humanity, gods, angels, demons, mystical weapons, universal power all inhibited with many other aspects making this book a complete surprise to the new readers.
Story consists of a couple of warriors along with a traction who's none other than the avatar of vishnu who wishes to bring change to the society via waging a full scale war. Fate brought them under strange circumstances when never in their wildest dreams they decided to opt for politics or lust for kingdom . The fate of the humanity rests upon their hands. However, reason being the same the never-ending zeel to bring happiness to others, freeing them from the clutches of evil.
Little did they knew their lives are gonna change because they've been living in an illusion. Because things are not always what we perceive themselves to be. What came next was beyond their feeble imagination.
The book talks about a mysterious mystical epic war. A battle between angels & demons, God & Satan himself, good versus evil, heaven versus hell and so on.
All in the pretext of a common goal to be achieved at a set duration of time. The game may very well change the fate of the world, as it lies in the mere pawns of the game created by nature itself. The embodiment & manifestation of weapons talked about is what makes it all the more interesting to read!
Language is excellent. The choice of words, vocabulary selected in contemporary & in conjunction with the setting. Some touches of American, Britain accent has been retained in some places.
Next comes narration, now here I'm succumbed to loss of words. No words can define the amount of depth, perseverance, research, patience has been entailed in this book that compels the readers to go to the very end to know what happens. The plethora of pain that has been taken to narrate such long epic tale is riveting, retelling & making the readers realise the true meaning of life is worth commending upon. No less that I expect from a debut book to make such an impression & leave such foretelling remark on the mind & soul.
The story of Lord Ram is absolutely amazing.
If you're a fiction lover, sci-fi reader, one who loves being an mythological adventures, watches ramayana then you're simply in for a treat of a lifetime.
Procrastination of the sequel is a sheer torture.
It is a sheer pain to be kept waiting for the next one!
The writer should be tortured and jailed for keeping the readers waiting for second part.
The anticlimactic ending was well anticipated for a sequel to come in the distant future.
Just go for it!
The first chapter begins with the kidnapping of Sita by Raavan in his pushpak Vimaan and death of Jatayu, a naga, who tried to save Sita. The story breaks at second chapter and it narrate the turn of actions that leads to this event.
The narration begins with the battle of Karachapa, in which the unconquerable chakravarti king Dashrath is defeated by the king of Lanka, Raavan. Coincidently, on the same day Ram is born to Kaushalya, the eldest wife of Dashrath. Dashrath is convinced that Ram is born with a bad karma and is a bad omen, as on the day of his birth he lost his battle.
Amish’s has brought all the characters in the book alive with true emotions. The scenes will come vivid from the book, be it Kaikeyi saving Dashrath in the battle field, or Bharath avenging her sister Roshni, Manthara performing the rituals of her deceased daughter, Lakshman risking his life time and again to save Ram, Ram admiring Sita the first time he see her, Sita standing bold in the market place saving a teenage, Urmila crying to join Lakshman in the exile and many more.
Really appreciate Amish’s imaginations of inheriting Draupadi’s swayambar from Mahabharat into Sita’s Swayambar. Hanuman ji did do a guest appearance in this book, who with his men are still on the way locating Ram.
The author has brought into focus many of the social norms like caste system. Why birth should not be important but the actions should be important. He does open debate against polygamy just for political alliance. He has made successful attempt to link the vayuputras, nagas and soamras from his previous Siva Trilogy. I loved this book. This is one of the finest books I read in 2015. No doubt I will recommend this book to all readers.
What I have learned from his writings is that "Birth does not have a role in deciding one's caste. The discipline and their deeds together decide one's caste"
Amish has become a master at mixing fiction with myth and beliefs and he has presented a good start to the series. Looking forward to more books in this. This book won't disappoint you if you thought Amish would present a similar story as that of Shiva's Trilogy.
What is exciting about the book?
- Improvised story line with objective premise. Amish has given good explanations to many mythological phenomena.
- An unemotional viewpoint towards the characters. Amish has maintained an unbiased tone towards the actions of the characters.
- More than enough to keep readers captivated. While it is true that not every secret will be revealed in the book, Amish has thrown many a things for some gratification.
All in all, another bestseller from Amish. It will help provide you another perspective.
