WITHOUT THE DARKNESS LIGHT HAS NO PURPOSEWITHOUT THE VILLAIN WHAT WOULD THE GODS DOINDIA 3400 BCEA land in tumult poverty and chaos Most people suffer uietly A few rebel Some fight for a better world Some for themselves Some don’t give a damn Raavan Fathered by one of the most illustrious sages of the time Blessed by the Gods with talents bey I had completely forgotten this book was releasing last week until someone mentioned on a group chat and I knew I had to read it immediately I actually didn t have a lot of expectations just wanted it to be an engaging read but this one turned out to be surprisingly very goodIt wasn t until the second book of this series Sita did I realize it was going to be a multilinear narrative with the first three books following three different characters but merging at the same point towards the end This made the experience of reading Sita a bit boring because the last third of the book felt very repetitive I guess I went into this book feeling similarly but Amish definitely did a great job of dispelling all my misconceptions The writing is very engaging right from the get go fast paced and entertaining while also not shying away from the philosophical and dharmic discussions that I ve come to associate with Amish s books The entire reinterpretation of Raavan s backstory which we generally don t know much about is done masterfully and I loved how much of emotion the author was able to evoke in us I also really loved the whole theme of every hero needing a strong villain in their life to have a large scale impact on the minds of the people I guess my only gripe was that because the book was covering a very long timeline there were huge time jumps and we are only told about major events rather than showing them happenRaavan s character is really a study in contrasts He is knowledgeable accomplished intelligent and ruthless but on the other hand loves his brother Kumbhakarna to no end He has his moments of humanity and just when you think he is capable of change something happens that completely changes the trajectory of his life The depiction of unreuited love and absolute grief is so utterly raw and gritty in this book that it really shook me Kumbhakarna is a character whom we don t much about at all in the original epic but he completely fascinated me here and I really liked him a lot At his core he is a kind and compassionate person who wants to be dharmic but his devotion to his brother is also complete which leads him onto paths he doesn t necessarily want to embark on I adored the interactions between the brothers how they were able to show their vulnerabilities to each other made me very emotional and connected to their relationship but also seeing it change gradually pained me It s definitely this relationship that carries the emotional weight of the story and is what made it such a wonderful readTo finish I just wanna say that if you are fan of Amish s earlier works you should definitely read this one because I thought it had a great balance of mythology political machinations mystery and emotion It also ends on a very epic note and I m already very excited to see how Amish is gonna interpret the rest of the epic However if you haven t read any of the author s books before I would highly recommend to start with the Immortals of Meluha While this Ram Chandra series is not exactly a spin off of the Meluha trilogy there are many interconnecting elements between the two that I feel can be enjoyed better if you have start at the beginning

Raavan Enemy of Aryavarta

Nd kill without remorseThis exhilarating third book of the Ram Chandra series sheds light on Ravaan the king of Lanka And the light shines on darkness of the darkest kind Is he the greatest villain in history or just a man in a dark place all the timeRead the epic tale of one of the most complex violent passionate and accomplished men of all ti Raavan one of the most debated characters in the history of Indian mythology Growing up we have often heard conflicting sides of his nature There are instances where he is kind generous compassionate and servile Then there are situations where he is shown to be vile arrogant cruel sadistic and selfish Incorporating such nuances into a story is an arduous task The Demon King of Lanka has been subjected various interpretations over time The benevolent egoist the arrogant devoteehe is described by words that are self conflicting He is a character whose good deeds are often eclipsed by his selfish and cruel actions He is intelligent a great philosopher His treatise on Ayurveda and philosophy are well known The 10 heads symbolizes his supreme intelligent in all fields of life He is a prolific musician known for his paintings a great physician a trader who mints money from thin air supreme tactician the lists are endless Regardless he has a short fuse Once he is enraged he forgets the distinction between good and bad All that remains is the ever consuming rage like a wild fire that destroys everything in its path In short he is a persona held in much awe and respect Sometimes I think it is these ualities of Raavan which actually propelled Ram to his glory The greater the difficulty the greater the rewardComing to the book Amish has done a great job in imbibing the Raavana we are familiar with into his words He has gone a further mile and ensured some surprises are in store for us The romantic side of Raavana is explored in this book However this same repetition of worshipping the feminine is recurrent in his earlier tellings of Ram Sita then Shiva and ParvathyBut hey I am not complaining he has done it wonderfully We see Raavan grow from a child to the Demon king that he becomes Another thing that surprised me was the character of Khumbakharna From the obese glutton of a man whose major role is often side lined to his appearance in war Amish has transformed him into a loving charismatic brother who will do anything for his Dada This Khumbha is a character that keeps Raavan in check The brotherly love between these two characters has been portrayed beautifully Many minor characters also mention appreciation but suffice to say that the character building was engagingThe world building description of places and the travels of Raavana were also handled with utmost care It was a pleasure to read and imagine the world through his words His approach to the philosophy of life also deserves merit He has broached these subjects in a simple manner The plot was engaging There was no repetition from the previous books Following a parallel line of story telling the instances in the previous two books were kind of repetitive In this book there was no repetition and beautifully tie in with the thread was left open in the previous books And what is a climax without a twist There is a surprise waiting at the end but the surprise is not in the plot but rather in the way he handled the charactersThe book is not without its negatives Many people may find the theme of the book repetitive but I would like to say that he is just building a universe for his books And then there is Vidur and Buddha He casually spouted these names in the Ramayan Era So that is it folks I highly recommend the book to everyone This is the best book in the Ram series so far

Ond all Cursed by fate to be tested to the extremesA formidable teenage pirate he is filled with eual parts courage cruelty and fearsome resolve A resolve to be a giant among men to conuer plunder and seize the greatness that he thinks is his rightA man of contrasts of brutal violence and scholarly knowledge A man who will love without reward a I have always enjoyed reading Amish Tripathi s books His stories which borrow richly from our rich mythological texts have presented the narrative in a different and sometimes contemporary fashion His three books of Shiva Trilogy depict Shiva as a noble and yet very relatable character Nowhere in the series you feel that as an author Amish has transgressed the line of respect and centuries of belief His first two books of Ram Chandra series transgressed this line but they still could be tolerated for putting forward an alternate view However with his latest book in the series Raavan he seems to have deliberately crossed the line For the first time I found his novel downright boring because the author seems to have run out of ideas First he makes a bold statement that Sita is Vishnu avatar Then he goes on to project her as a daughter of Vedavati Ridiculously enough Raavan attends Sita s swayamvara and there is a contest to hit a revolving fish in the eye by looking at its shadow in bowl of water below a straight lift from Mahabharata For lack of a tight plot the menace of plaue afflicting the Lankan citizens is introduced This plaue overnight reduces Raavan s powers Unable to establish a link between Sita s abduction and the battle with Raavan Amish introduces a vague reason in the killing of Vedavati How could an act of killing by just a gang of few people infuriate Raavan to swear to destroy Sapt Sindhu The book is best avoided as it takes too many liberties with accepted narrative and has weak and downright boring storyline

    DisappointedThere is no methodological references except the same names unlike other books and series Why people like Amish’s books is because he writes methodological fictions where at the base story is based on ancient scripture with added fiction and exaggerated dramatised detailsBut in this book nothing is like that there we
