The Third Day Dwapara Yuga: Harshita Vallem


The Third Day Dwapara Yuga by Harshita Vallem is like our dreams. It is sometimes what is more real than ourselves, our hopes, our choices, our spirit. They are our only weapons to fight a destiny that is not ours. From the beginning the novel presents elements of mythology, but these are often told in a particular way.

The ancient dispute between Good and Evil is a game in which men do not command. In the Dwapara Yuga Brahma fought to recoup his reputation and Elsker, the Universe to save his love Sarayu, the earth. A terrorizing combat broke out between the cannibals and humankind. However, the union of Elsker and Sarayu finished the confrontation quickly yet, the iniquity had not yet ceased and Elsker left to put together his militia to battle the vice that was unleashed.

The story is very special and the plot very well narrated where we can witness the fusion of reality and fantasy, perhaps for the originality. It was strange to read these parallel stories, this mixture of fantasy and reality and going onward, the story captures and curiosity began to be felt.

The first thing striking about this book is certainly the way in which the story is set and in the beginning in fact we are faced with two parallel scenarios with two different protagonists, one part imagination and one of our world with one big passion and a troubled life.

The author has in fact been able to take cue from Indian mythology, but has been able to perfectly combine these elements to her imagination, creating a mysterious and fascinating world. Suddenly, however, the fantasy becomes reality, the two worlds merge and the reader is catapulted into a fantasy world populated by mysterious beings and unknown to the human eye, but he himself is able to sense, as if it were part of the story, thanks to the intensity of the descriptions of the author.

From the first pages it’s a pure fantasy setting. Between passions and betrayals come to life the events that structure the novel. The antagonists are very well characterized and intelligently designed, becoming an evil figure but well hidden. Not only that, not everything is what it seems.

The author reveals the past that ties Elsker and Sarayu but without going into details, which capture even more curiosity and introduces us to the heroes, the warriors who fight for the sake of the kingdom but they hide them in an obscure secret. At one point the story come together and create something magical in a unpredictable universe, even for the same creative.

The narrative continues, from this point on, marrying and blending the main story. Within the novel issues are ripe and delicate, even of the most gloomy and dark with aspects that seem so far away but really tied together inextricably. In the book you can actually feel strong feelings. It can taste the value of life, wonderful gift as ephemeral where you can enjoy the detailed descriptions of the places, detailed but not verbose.

The characters are very well characterized, with an antagonist that makes its appearance from the beginning and it is easy to become attached to them almost under with some really brilliant choices that have been made that allowed forward in the novel multi-faceted characters and enrich so even more people. The story is pleasant that will make me continue reading with pleasure.

Profound themes and feelings intertwined contribute to enrich the novel. Read the intimate legends and immerse yourself in so many different worlds and it is a pleasure to be irrational, almost counterproductive, of almost infinite magnitude.

The flowing, captivating and magnetic style helps to create a work that has everything needed to become a real bestseller and definitely one of the best fantasy in circulation and is recommended not only would say, of course it is, to those who love the genre, but would extend the invitation to read to all those who want something intense and getting involved in the power of a story.

Blurb

 

A day in Brahma’s life has 14 Manvantaras + 15 Sandhyas, which is equal to 4.32 billion years. Each Manvantara has 71 Divya-Yugas, which is equal to 306.72 million years. Again each Divya-Yuga is divided into four Yugas, Satya, Treta, Dwapara, and Kali. Brahma created eleven Prajapathis and seven Saptarishis, who are called the Manas Putras to serve in creating the Universe. However, he made an irrevocable mistake on the first day of his life that cost him his honour, as one of the supreme Lords of the Trimurti, and led to the fight between evil and good and the loss of billions of lives. The very existence of humankind was questioned. In the Dwapara Yuga – Brahma fought to regain his honour – and Elsker, the Universe – to save his love Sarayu, the earth. In the first millionth year, of the Dwapara Yuga – the Tala Pata Grandas – the prestigious holy scripts, written on holy leaves – were opened, unveiling the unpleasant things to come. A terrifying war broke out between the cannibals and humankind. However, the unison of Elsker and Sarayu ended the war abruptly, during the first millionth year. Nevertheless, the evil had not yet ceased and Elsker left to build his army to combat the evil that was unleashed! The second millionth year began. To unearth the ‘City of Lost Souls’ and fight evil – the Universal Mind and Elsker began their quest for Nirbhaya and the Manas Putras. The Manas Putras were re-incarnated in the third yuga of the third day of Lord Brahma’s life. Elsker was not alone in this quest, the King of Narmada’;s soul; Daksha guided Elsker. Expect the unexpected…

 

My Review

I started off the book with an intention to read a mythological fiction. The blurb too gives the feel of a mythological fiction but when I entered the world of imaginations set by authoress, I realized that it is a YA Fantasy of which I am not much of an expert to review. I admit my mistake of not investigating much about the genre of the book. The names Elsker, Sarayu, Nirbhaya, Parama, Daksha etc were picked up randomly. The mythological connection seems to occur when the names of Prajapthis and Saptharshis are revealed.Highlights

The writing style is simple and suits a YA fantasy. Parama’s character is crafted very well. The imagery of the book is good. Authoress has prepared a mouthwatering feast for the fantasy lovers. For a debutante, she had done a good job. The cogent cover adds to the appeal of the book.
Drawbacks
 

The love between Sarayu and Elsker was not conveyed well. Authoress has shown excellence in designing the blurb and acknowledgement, but failed to pull off the same in the book. In spite of being exceptionally good in terms of literary value,the blurb is misleading
