Dashavatar is a book about the ten stories of the 10 main avatars of Lord Vishnu and how each of them saved the earth from the rule of evil in their own way and what challenges they faced while doing so. The 10 avatars are Matsya (fish), Kurma (turtle), Varaha (boar), Narasimha, Vamana (dwarf man), Parashurama, Ram, Krishna, Buddha and Kalki. Each story defines the avatar for who they were and describes it from a fresh, unbiased point of view where you can truly see the merits and flaws of each character, so the true hero of the story is left for the reader’s imagination to decide.
The writing is contemporary & easy to understand for the millennial. The best part about Piyusha’s writing is that she ensures that the line of thought changes every few sentences & thus keeps the reader engaged. Despite not having descriptive passages in the stories, her play of words allows the reader to be transformed in the exact setting where the author wants us to be. I LOVED the fact that none of the stories come under a “GENRE”. They are what they are meant to be: Stories – meant to entertain & leave the reader with a thought. Published by Readomania, the book is prized at a humble Rs. 49. It gives the reader complete, edge of the seat entertainment.
