Dvaitam – The Rise of Asura

Author Name: Uttam Dutta | Format: Paperback | Genre : Young Adult Fiction | Other Details

What happens when ancient powers somehow find a way to return to the Earthly realm, and reassert their control over the modern world to reclaim their rule?

Many powerful Asura from Ramayana and Mahabharata era were either killed or banished by reincarnations of Lord Vishnu to protect Dharma and preserve the divine balance. The battle between Sur (Devta) and Asur began with creation of the Universe and has since continued in various yugas, on varied scales, under different names. But in Kalyuga, for the first time, the Asur clan discovers a way to resurrect and comes face to face with ‘modern civilization’.

History, often written by the victor, does not care to accurately capture the perspective of the vanquished. What was Asura's standpoint? What was on the other side of the coin? Was there anything beyond good vs. evil at play in the conflict between Sur and Asur?

Shiv, a physicist on a secret project for Government of India, when confronted by an Asura, finds himself in a shocking situation and realises the futility of his modern education. With decades to go until the next expected reincarnation of Lord Vishnu, there is no one to counter the power, knowledge, and skills of Asura. Will the Asur clan succeed in initiating a chain reaction of resurgence? Be astounded by the comeback of one of the most cherished warriors in Indian history to save humanity.

An action-packed blend of Indian history and fiction, a story suitable for India’s own epic movie series.
