This blog used to be views on various things. But in all these years, I find it going a whole new direction.
Something which I have loved all the time. It's BOOKS!! So, presenting a whole new saga, of books and a little about them, whatever I can find, write, visualise and imagine...

Book Review : ‘The Shivputra Chronicles : Tripurantaka' by Vikrant R Utekar
I have read quite a bit
on mythology. And so, this book am guessing is probably at the right place. When
I started reading, ‘The Shivputra Chronicles : Tripurantaka’, I did not expect
too much. But it took me by surprise. Though it did not take me, too long to
finish, (it was about 99 pages long, and it took me exactly 99 minutes to
finish), and I finished with a smile.
The book started off,
in pretty much today’s time and world. But it kind of takes you on a trip, into
another world. If you are a follower of Percy Jackson’s adventures, then you
would understandthat this one has a similar premise.
The three gods and their wives have their own
heirs. We are dealing with Shiva’s heir, Chandrashekhar Kashyap or CK, as the
main protagonist, supported by Shakti (Adishakti’s heir). The two of them also,
have Vishnu and Brahma with their wives too. They also have gods like sun and wind
and their heirs, among others.
They all have a
mission, which is to exterminate evil from the earth. The villains in this episode
include Alamvush and his brothers and include various other Rakshasas. Do they
manage to defeat them and find out what would happen? What does happen in the twisted

It is not too difficult
to guess who’s who, if you are in touch with mythology. They get their powers through
meditations and their own strengths, which almost seem superhuman. I liked this
book, basically, because it did not lecture us on mythology, and it managed to
end in very few pages. I’m quite used to reading pages of mythology, but this
one kind of had its own strength.
The editing could have been better. Good cover too. Am looking forward to
more of the episodes, so here’s wishing Vikrant R Utekar, all the best… Thanks to The Book Bakersfor sending across this book.
