Ramayana was all about Ravana abducting Sita and Rama rescuing Sita with the help of Hanuman, before I received the book. I am glad for now I know the intricacies that were involved even before Sita was abducted and the consequences that followed soon after. The many characters and their brief appearances have been justly described. Regardless of whether the reader is a novice or an expert on Ramayana, I think the book shall prove a worthy read to all.
The Rigveda Code is an interesting mythological fiction based on the after-effects of the Mahabharata war. The plot centers around Rikshavi, a warrior princess of the Vrij kingdom (in present-day Bihar). Thirty years post the war, Lord Krishna wishes for a new system of governance for the future of Bharatkhanda. However, instead of establishing the new system by himself, he chooses to pass the secret code to the Pandavs’ legacy which the warrior princess is destined to fulfill.
