Asura attempts to break the age old tradition where history is always narrated by the winners. Asura - Tale of the Vanquished ventures out to narrate the tale of the Asuras. Blending mythology, religion and history, this book presents the tale from Ravana and Bhadra's perspective. It describes how the Asura community is more liberal than the conventional Deva clan, which was highly prejudiced. From the stories of Mahabali, Vamana and Sita's Agni-Pareeksha, to Jatayu's meeting with Ravana, the author discloses the many human emotions behind these tales and logically presents a new perspective for the readers. Published in the year 2012, the book has topped many bestseller lists, including the 2012 Crossword and the bestseller list of CNN-IBN.
