For all those who are interested in the connection between our mythology and history, this book would definitely appeal to them.
I am not going to reveal the story anyways. Will just give the plot outline to fuel curiosity 🙂 .
So this book is about a professor Ravi Mohan Saini who gets entangled in between a search for the four seals of dwarka left behind by Krishna himself, which apparently hold the key to something ancient and some thing of great use to makind now.
In parallel there is a person who thinks he is the Kalki Avatar and believes that he is eliminating bad by murdering people, ultimately also looking for a key.
Are they both looking for the same thing? Is he the real Kalki Avatar? What is it that is hidden away and where do the seals point to?
The narration is gripping with lot of interesting references to events of the time of Krishna, and ancient scriptures and connecting how all that is not just a mythological story but a real history. The author Ashwin Sanghi talks about how the older generation was far more technologically evolved and many of the things which are depicted as magical or heavenly in out ancient scriptures, could actually be the result of highly technological and scientific abilities which I beyond our understanding now.
The daivi astras, brahmastras said to be used during Mahabharata war could actually be some sort if nuclear weapons. It talks about the 12 jyothirlingas and how the radion degrees in these areas or so high, which could be because of the energy emanating from the material these lingas are formed with. The author says, the bilva Patra (bel leaf) is used to worship Lord Shiva as it has properties of anti radiation.
There are many such interesting references, whether they are facts or fiction am not sure. But it sure is intriguing to know these references and wonder if that could be true.
Below are some excerpts of the book (without spoiling the suspense). It’s absolutely wonderful and an interesting read.
