Mahabharat is such a great saga, such a great book that has all the essence of life, present in it. This has love, hate, conspiracy, friendship, hatred, loyalty, treachery and all other such emotions. Before the great war of Mahabhrat, the great continent of India was full of brave hearts and warriors, but after the war was over, only a few warriors survived in this land. This war of Mahabharat was the result of two pledges; one that was taken by Pitamah Bhisma and the other pledge that was taken by the ruler of Gandhar, Shakuni. If Bhisma Pitamah had not taken the pledge that he would not sit on the throne, there would have been no chance that this war would have happened and if Shakuni had not taken the pledge that he would destroy the Kuru dynasty, then he would have never left Gandhar and come to Hastinapur; this would ensure that the seed of enmity between the Kauravas and Pandavas would have never grown. The situational pledges that were taken by Bhisma and Shakuni, later on turned into a curse for them. The almighty created such a situation, that both of them started regretting their decisions of taking such pledges. Shakuni never knew that, the sister he loved more that his life would one day be married to the same kuru dynasty, whose destruction has been pledged by him. I have tried to enlighten many unknown facts about the life of Shakuni so that the readers could know more and more about Shakuni.

The author, a graduate in Astronomy, Science and Engineering takes you through 7000 years of human existence and tries to analyze why mythical stories forming basis of religion in most of the countries cannot be rejected out rightly, as some of the locations and sites related to these myths are in existence even today. These mythical stories may appear as true historical narratives to the faithful but do not appeal to a modern rational mind The author in a logical and lucid manner discusses the possible factors and reasons for development of religious myths, as these are affecting every human on our earth whether through traditions or as a religious phenomenon. Book is a result of painstaking study of four decades of different religions to find background of religious myths. Super compact narration of religious stories from angle of a rationalist, to filter true from untrue. A wonderful conceptualization of events, spanning over seven millenniums. A semi fictional work but a book of knowledge, a must read for all modern minds.
The empire of White Huns in 500 AD (Sixth Century ) had extended to vast areas of China, Western Parthia, Kashmir and Central India. White Huns were followers of Tengri religion but one of their powerful kings considered himself, to be endowed with special blessings of Lord Shiva and he started destroying Buddhist monasteries all over his empire and right up to present Allahabad. In a rare case of unity among Indian kings, the great Hun emperor was defeated in a famous war fought at Mandsaur (a city in Central India but part of erstwhile Gwalior State ) in year 532 AD. Even after defeat, by deceit and cleverness he managed to reach Kashmir and after few years in hiding, succeeded in becoming king of Kashmir and continued with his mission of obliteration. A rare work of fiction based on historical facts. A unique story, never told before.
“With the enlightenment of the Lord Buddha, many misgivings about God’s existence were blown away. A true thiesm was emerged on the horizon of sprituality, where no assumptions were supposed to be pre-requisits to experience it, and only a clinical reality of the Truth was believed in. These Ballads are only an attempt to shadow this reality…”
