Book Review | Aavarana: The Veil
A very thought provoking read which meshed up the past and the present and the ever going feud between religions. What I did not like in the book, honestly I am not qualified to criticise a avaarana of that stature and the work of this sort. Here is when the author’s politically incorrect storytelling commences.

The ease with which the story shifts back and forth in time is excellent.
Ananthmurthy sir to tell it. The aim of abarana novel is to portray history as it is and not conceal history for ulterior motives as several authors and historians have done.
