God of the Sullied: A tale of Kismet and Karma in Kaliyuga

God of the Sullied: A tale of Kismet and Karma in Kaliyuga

By Jaison Wilson
New Delhi, Sep 30 (UNI) Author Gaurav Sharma recently came up with a classic, timeless work that sheds light on the ancient Indian philosophy and history. 'God of the Sullied', Sharma’s second novel and first historical (mythological) fiction is a gripping tale that is laced with freshly brewed twists and turns that keep the reader hooked till the last page.
Its sequel, 'Long Live the Sullied' shall follow the 240-pager book published in September 2018 by Delhi-based Think Tank Books.
God of the Sullied will catapult its readers back in time to ninth-century India when the sudden death of Adi Shankaracharya propelled the rise of 'Kali', the evil in the Indian subcontinent.
The book revolves around a kingdom called Rudraputra (fictional name) severely drenched in corruption and strife. A prophecy was made by the high priest of the nation that a soon-to-be-born mystic child Eklavya would protect the righteous and restore the order.
However, the protagonist, Eklavya was declared cursed and left abandoned by his relatives and fellow villagers at a very tender age. Then a few other misfortunate events unfold, keeping readers wondering about how a cursed and sullied child would pull himself out of the atrocities in life, let alone protecting others and restoring peace and order in Rudraputra.
The moment you think you can predict the next chapter of the book, dramatic twists that Sharma cohesively puts into this novel will leave you flabbergasted. The story has a strong plot chronicled in reasonably simple language, making it easy for beginners to get the essence of it.
The chapters inside the book have a point-of-view narrative that brings out the best of each character, bounding the reader to escape into the tale. What’s unique about this novel is the promising role of supporting characters that are at par with the main character.
As Sharma’s novel is laced with exciting mysteries and secrets, it is suggested that you finish reading 'God of the Sullied' in one go to maintain the momentum. The climax of the book will leave you eagerly waiting to read its sequel, 'Long Live the Sullied' which Sharma is currently working on.
