The Code of Manavas, written by ‘Arpit Bakshi’, is a lovely creation with a perfect blend of Mythology and Science Fiction. The book was so fascinating, educational, and a page turner.
The book is Maha-Vishnu Trilogy Part I, set in two million solar years past 2050 AD in Madhavpur and Ayudhpur; the only cities that exist on Bhoomi, a planet where manavas reside. The story revolves around lead character Krishna, the scientist who is in constant search for finding a planet to transfer manavas so as to sustain their lives. Also, Krishna knows something that nobody knows..
Will Krishna be able to save manavas? And what price will they pay?
The story has a unique combination of past and future. Though the first few chapters are quite elaborate and some characters are dragged unnecessarily making it a little difficult for reader to grasp. Yet the story is interesting and keeps you engaged. All in all, I loved the way the story unfolds and how the author maintained a balance between science & mythology. Waiting for the next book in the sequel.
Arpit Bakshi is a superb storyteller with a vivid imagination and has a good command over the story and doesn’t let it meander. Not being a scientist, Author had really done thorough research in both Indian Mythology and Science. Naming of the characters in book is also quite interesting as its related to Lord Krishna and Radha. The language is crisp with some technical terms which author tried explaining at the end pages of book.
If you are new to Mythological Fiction and want to ease into it, then this book is simple to grasp and is a good choice. And for the lover of Indian mythology and Sci-Fi, this book is a perfect option.
‘A widely popular myth is still a myth and a truth ignored will still qualify as a truth.’
