I won’t dilly-dally with what the book is all about, but yes there are certain messages that I am taking the liberty of extracting from the book. I think, Usha too might have wanted to convey those. The book is about hope. It does espouse faith in the future. The book gives hope, taking the trials and tribulations of Pradyumna as examples.
When the world says give up… Hope whispers, “Try one more time”.
The book talks about love. Love that transcends yugas, beyond the realm of the world and infinitely strong. It talks of love that is beyond the boundaries of time, space and gender. Gender? Yes! The love of Maya and Pradyumna, Krishna and Radha, Rukmini and Krishna, Shiva and Vishnu (Hari-Hara) are all very beautifully conveyed.
This brings to mind the quote in the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho: “When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
The 3rd element that the book comes forth with is the vanquishing of darkness, evil and the Kaliyug. There are subtle hints of how to overcome them. Not by force alone but by intellect too. While the world waits for Kalki to turn Kaliyug into a Golden age again – there are many personal demons that we need to fight. There are many evils to be vanquished and the efforts aren’t in vain. The struggle maybe long but perseverance is the key.
Beautiful messages that I have extracted from this book that’s well written. Simple to read and easy to follow. I also recommend that you read the first book “Pradyumna: The Son of Krishna” by the same author and also Shikhandi by Devdutt Pattanaik to understand the different aspects of love.
