This is not against anyone or any religion, it speaks about an unbiased narration of history and acknowledging the mistakes and wrong afarana of the past. He has penned 24 novels and four volumes of literary criticism and books on aesthetics, social issues and culture.

While the glib liberal serves as a counterpoint to the questing Razia, the others — like Amir — are mean-minded caricatures drawn in to emphasize the agenda. This book also shows how the Marxist historians run the ecosystem and anyone who keeps opposite views is hounded.

We get to realize zvarana Mughal rule was not the paradise as it is widely touted to be, we also get to realize that many avraana the so called progressive people do have their own agenda, the Marxist historians of the country are exposed.


As the author states, “The reader too shares an equal responsibility with the author in his quest for truth” So much for the democracy of our country which stands by the motto: The protagonist Lakshmi is an intelligent, self confident and progressive Hindu woman who falls in love with a Muslim man named Amir, much against the wishes of her father, who disowns her from the family.

What she sees in Hampi disturbs her, little does she know that these were the first ripples of the ocean she is about to cross. Must read if you think you are better than average in kannada.

Ananthmurthy sir to tell it. It is intellectually stimulating and though heavy on history keeps the reader hooked till the last page. Aavarana is a fictional novel, creative work by Bhyrappa taking into considerations of historical fact of India boook past few centuries.

Keeping that in mind, or even otherwise – for the sheer joy of reading a great work of Historical fiction, this book must be read urgently, and widely. The book throws light on harsh truths of history that have been consciously hidden by the progressive intellectuals, in the interest of harmony.
