Description

An intriguing science fiction fantasy set during prehistoric times beyond the mists of vedic India - the forgotten era of ‘first wave’ civilisations. 

A thought provoking story that attempts to provide a fantastic link between the rich legacy of Indian mythology and the apparent lack of tangible archaeological evidence to support them. Is it possible that most of the land mass we live in today was under ice cover during ice-age or that much of the tropical land mass that could sustain life during ice-age is actually under sea now? Could it be true that the Indian mythology is based on faint and distorted recollection of cultural memories regarding an advanced civilisation that flourished during ice-age but faded away during the global ice-melt or pralay?

Around 10500 BCE, planet Earth is still in the grip of the last ice age. With sea levels much lower than they are today, and mainland continents still largely covered with ice, the primary centres of Indian civilisation were dominated by two highly advanced tropical nation states – Dev Lok and Daityan Empire. Spiritually-inclined Devas lived in harmony with nature, whereas Daityas believed in brute force technologies for rapid prosperity and material gratification. Steady inundation of the tropical islands towards the end of ice-age created a crisis, particularly for Daityas. To fuel their hunger for material resources, the aggressive Daityas proceeded to invade other nations.

Warrior monk Haŕa becomes the sole hope of Dev Lok to prevent defeat and abject subjugation. However, before he can help them, Haŕa must undertake the ultimate journey of spirituality to pass beyond the barrier of death itself and engage with the astral personae of Lord Rudra - one of three extra-terrestrial progenitors of humanity.

This fast paced, action-packed mythological science fiction takes the readers through the exotic cities of Amaravati, Atalantpuri (Atlantis?), and traces the arduous journey to Mount Kailash through Sarparanya, within the backdrop of love, passion, greed, war, tragedy and spirituality that characterised those ancient times. Few chapters within the book also attempt to unfold the scientific concept and philosophy of Karma in the form of 'socratic dialogues'. 

Will Haŕa be able to check the Daityan aggression in time to correct the course of Karma? Will he be able to wield the viman ‘Pinaka’ against the central seat of Daityan power – the indestructible citadels of Tripura? Is he the one who will glorify the name of Lord Shiva as Tripurantaka – the mighty destroyer of Tripura?

The paperback version of this book is now available at most online bookstores in India incl Flipkart. The e-book is also available across the world at online bookstores like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping story, 23 Nov 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Guardians of Karma (Kindle Edition)
The story was really exciting and I found it hard to put down. It was almost like an Indian version of 'Jason and the Argonauts' or other Greek Myths, with the warrior monk hero, Hara having to follow his Karma and achieve missions for the good of mankind (with the help of the Gods). While reading it I felt that the author must have an incredible imagination. A really good action-packed adventure, highly recommended.
