Dashavatar : Stories of Lord Vishnu
Dashavatar : Stories of Lord Vishnu is my second outing as a solo-authored book.
A paperback is a dream come true for every writer. Just like Just Another Day was a revelation to write and I ended up writing thrillers, this book too surprised the writer in me. It is unlike anything I’ve ever written.
Published by Readomania, it is out on December 25th, 2019.
Did you know that each avatar of Vishnu arrived with a specific purpose? Time and again, Vishnu has manifested in different forms to fulfil his role as a ‘protector’ of the world. Among the long list of 24 avatars, ten avatars have captured our imagination for centuries together—Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana, Parshuram, Rama, Krishna, Buddha, and Kalki. But how exactly did these avatars impact the society? And how do they link to the Charles Darwin theory of evolution? While each avatar has its own set of legends that extoll their characteristics and deeds, the stories behind them are just as interesting and informative. Presented in a contemporary and unbiased perspective, these stories of the ten avatars of Vishnu are an attempt to make mythology more believable and relevant to the world that we live in today.
Just Another Day – published by Readomania, under their online imprint Readomania Shots –
is a collection of three short stories about everyday life and how a random incident on what seems like a normal day may transform one’s life.
The stories are all in the first-person narrative and about individuals who are self-assured in their thought-processes and uninhibited about their actions.
Just Another Day is available on Kindle only, at Amazon.in, and across the world.
Mock, Stalk & Quarrel is a collection of satirical tales that emanated from a nationwide contest conducted by Readomania to identify powerful authors.
It has 29 stories penned by prolific writers and authors and is a humble but powerful attempt at raising serious questions through the impactful medium of Satire and Humour.
My story is titled ‘In Search of Mr. Perfect’ – it is my perspective on the types of grooms I’ve encountered during my search for a husband. No wonder then that the elusive Mr. Perfect has become even more elusive!
Apart from my story, there are other amazing stories that attempt to raise a voice and rage an ideological war against issues that matter. Grab your copy from Amazon.in. Do read the book and share your favourite story with me.
