Complete Review Here The Guardians of Karma is a complex yet relishing blend of mythology and science fiction from an era where inhabitants on Earth were technologically and spirituallyadvanced than what we are today Many myths we thought were myths are supported with proper scientific explanation Every marvel mentioned in the book is explained scientifically in detail to portray a picture of realism even in pre historic times.The book starts with two Bheeshma monks Acharya Parashu and Hara on a secret mission They come across a damsel in distress Dev Lok princess Uma and rescue her from the clutches of Vetals robots dumped after unsuccessful experimentation from Daityan empire After reaching Dev Lok, they soon realize the bigger picture and a bigger problem rising sea levels disrupting the life in Dev Lok and Daityan Empire There they decide to become part of the solution Hara is the central character in the book Needless to say, he falls in love with Uma an angle not explored and rightly so.The book has two parallels the story and queries related to spirituality both in equal measure Various means of achieving karma, identifying karma are explained through Acharya Parashu Readers looking for spiritual enlightenment will find this book far satisfying as it attempts to answer the questions we have been chasing all along However, readersconcerned about the story line will prefer to skip some paragraphs pages simply to concentrate on the story at hand Definitely worth a read. The author of this book has put forth a perspective that is unlike any other I ve read so far attempting to establish the connection between science, spirituality, philosophy and action, he presents the ancient Indian legends in a thrilling format of fantasy cum SF, thereby truly transforming them into vivid, gripping and intriguing alternative history Above all I guess the the most unique aspect if this book is the author s propensity to boldly ask why not refreshingly departing from the stereotypical views of mythology or spirituality and impart them plausible scientific explanations.

Around 10500 B.C.E., with sea levels much lower than they are today, and mainland continents still largely covered with ice, the primary centres of Indian civilisation were dominated by two highly advanced nation states Dev Lok and Daityan Empire Spiritually inclined Devas lived in harmony with nature, whereas Daityas believed in brute force technologies for rapid prosperity and material gratification Steady inundation of the tropical islands created a crisis, particularly for Daityas To fuel their hunger for material resources, the aggressive Daityas proceeded to invade other nations.Warrior monk Hara becomes the sole hope of Dev Lok to prevent defeat and abject subjugation However, before he can help them, Hara must undertake the ultimate journey of spirituality to pass beyond the barrier of death itself and engage with the astral personae of Lord Rudra This action packed mythological science fiction takes the readers through the exotic cities of Amaravati, Atalantpuri, and traces the arduous journey to Mount Kailash The story unfolds the philosophy of Karma within the backdrop of love, passion, greed, war, tragedy and spirituality that characterised these ancient times.Will Hara be able to check the Daityan aggression in time to correct the course of Karma Will he be able to wield the viman Pinaka against the central seat of Daityan power the indestructible citadels of Tripura Is he the one who will glorify the name of Lord Shiva as Tripurantaka the mighty destroyer of Tripura Author Mohan neatly tick all the boxes of a mythology thriller It has a wide narrative and a stream of main and associate characters punctuated by racy dialogues and an intrigue created solely on mis interpretation of the mythical creatures of our pre historic times The pace of the narrative is brisk and even though grappling with multiple characters, the author makes sure none of them is half baked and thus, provides the required punch.Butthan anything else, it raises important and at times crucial questions about our mythology Is it possible that many of the ancient myths within these epics do have some elements of truth behind them Maybe an advanced civilisation with ethnic groups like Devas, Daityas, Rakshas, Manavs etc did exist during our distant past May be the Lokas, Talas and other exotic places where they lived were actually the geographical land masses that used to exist during the ice age Perhaps some of the legendary events described in our scriptures were interpretations of real incidents, gleaned from fragmentary cultural memories of a prehistoric era Maybe there is a common lineage to the ancient legends of many cultures across the world For example, is the Indian legend about the free floating triple cities of Tripura and Greek one about Atlantis, both reconstructions of the same event I am going with 4 5 for Mohan Vizhakat s The Guardians of Karma There is pleasure in creating mythical world and evenfun when it is done right This one has the right mix of emotions, adrealine pumping action sequences and a brave attempt to connect spirituality, science and philosophy It s a must read and i look forward in reading its sequel.
