Events in Mumbai - Literati Cafe Meet at Crossword, Inorbit Mall Malad on 23 February 2014. 11.30.am
The following book will be discussed at the 2nd session of Literati Cafe.
Asura by Anand Neelakantan
In this bestseller, Neelakantan tries to break the age old tradition where history is always narrated by the victors. Asura: Tale Of The Vanquished dares to narrate the tale of the Asura people. Blending mythology, religion and history, the book narrates the tale from Ravana and Bhadra's perspective.
The book talks about how the Asura community is more liberal than the orthodox Deva clan, which was highly biased. It also attacks the evil practices of the Brahmin caste. From the tale of Mahabali, Vamana, and Sita’s Agni-Pareeksha, to Jatayu’s meeting with Ravana, the author reveals the many human emotions behind these stories and logically presents a new perspective for the readers.
