Descriptions about Vamana and Mahabali are given along with the meeting of Jataya and Ravana. Also, described is the Agni Pareeksha underwent by Sita. An unusual angle is shown about the human emotions. A new but logical outlook is thrown at the people in regard to the varied practices that were witnessed in this epic story. Also, the book makes people consider the fact that the Brahmins, back then, followed unreasonable practices.

The book also questions the lifestyle of Ravana and the alternatives and decisions he opted for. Besides, there is also an account about Ravana’s confrontation to the Gods regarding his daughter in the book.

The book was amongst the names of toppers of the 2012 Crossword. Also, it was on the bestseller list of CNN IBN.
