Bharathi and her theory for Everything by Anil C.S. Rao is science fiction. This book is the struggle between past and future which has so many elements to look upon. Lets analyse them :

Cover- The cover of the book is simple and the author hasn’t paid much attention as he was more in writing the content of the book.

Title- This is long title and intriguing. it gives us that thirst which quenched after reading the story.

Blurb- To Bharathi, this was utterly horrific. If it were indeed the case then she was conceived the same way she saw Aryaraj molest older inmates in the encampment. As a result of this mischievous Roopa s revelation, Bharathi fell into a depression for (she had counted) forty days and forty nights. In her dreams she recalled a very ancient story Roopa had shared to her a year prior: about a Noah who bought two of every living thing on his arc when The World had been flooded in God s anger at human being s conduct on Earth. What would God think of now with the semi-robotic people that now inhabited Aryraraj s World? And worse: who was this God? Aryaraj often professed that he was eligible for this status or title.

About the book- The story is based on a girl named, Bharathi and her travels from past to future in 2070.She drifts away into her world and story moves as per her will and along with Bharati Arun Rao’s life is also narrated. Arun is a writer who is married to Reena, works at Harbour General Hospital and gets kidnapped. As story continues we discover who kidnapped Reena and other quests are also answered.

Style- The writing is simple and cinfusing at the times. There are some syntactical errors in the work. It is an easy read as the pages are not so long. The author confuse the readers in some pages and at times the reader takes a lot of time to come in contact with the story. I felt some of the parts were digressing.

POsitives-

This book has done full justice to the tech lovers.

The concept is unique.

Negatives-

Confuse the readers.

Digressive

Turn off for literature lovers

Book Review of The Mahabharta Code

 

 
THE MAHABHARATA CODE
by
KARTHIK K.B.RAO
 

The Mahabharta Code by Karthik K. B. Rao is a mythological fiction. The book has a unique concept with a blend of Mythology and Science Fiction. The book is the mixture of past generation and present generation. Well, I won this book in goodreads giveway and also I had signed up the blog tour of this book.IN this book, the author has played with the minds of the readers. Let me tell you more about it:

Cover- The cover of the book arises the urge to know more about the book. The colour scheme is fascinating.

Title- The title ‘The Mahabharta Code’ gives us the glimpse of the genre which it follows i.e. mythology and has many surprises stored for the readers.

Blurb- “The Mahabharata Code is a personal account of the main protagonist Narayan Rao (NR), who claims to be an astronomer with NASA. NR and a few other crew members agree to take part in the NASA mission to visit this mystery planet from which they had received mysterious signals. Here, they meet a man with a long flowing white beard, and he introduces himself as Vyasa. He reveals that he has a crazy plan in mind and seeks NR and his members’ help in implementing this plan. He intends to recreate the entire Mahabharata on this planet to restore the faith of the primitive simpletons here.

 
As the Mahabharata incidents start unfolding, NR realizes that Vyasa intends to recreate them page by page here, if not paragraph by paragraph. Also NR begins to realize that his son, Krishna, who is being groomed by Vyasa as Vishnu’s avatar, is nothing more than a pawn in Vyasa’s scheme of things. Other incidents of Mahabharata also unfold according to the original epic. Pandavas and Kauravas grow up hating each other and finally the restaging plan culminates with both the warring sets of cousins facing each other in the battlefield of Kurukshetra. 

Inexplicably, like the original epic, Arjuna develops cold feet seeing his own cousins, teachers and relatives on the opposite side. He seeks Krishna’s divine intervention. Is the brainwashed “alien” Krishna prepared for this intervention?”


Plot- The plot is well knit and has no loose ends in it. The plot follows no digressions and has a unique concept in it. The protagonist is a NASA scientist who is tied in the knots of his subconscious mind which produced certain hallucinations where he could connect himself to the Mahabharta story. The author has played a tricky game which confuses the readers and keeps suspense till the end.
Characterisation- The author has beautifully portrayed the characters. The protagonist the complex character in the story. He looks flat but shifts to round and then ends up being complex. Even readers could not make it whether he is a flat one or round. The mention of Mahabharta characters and the stories related to them is impeccable. A new version of their views could be noticed.
STyle- The author has cleverly written this piece with lots of research on his side. The descriptions are perfectly delineated. The pace of the novel is steady. The combination of imagination and present is impeccable. The use of mythological jargons along with perfect editing skills makes this novel an amazing piece. The references listed at the end surely help us know his views and even serve as a guide for us if we counter check it. But at times, I felt there was confusion created maybe it was intentional so that the readers could not guess the suspense. This novel is a wonderful mashup of flashback technique and stream of consciousness.
