Aavarana – The Veil by S.L. Bhyrappa (3 star ratings)

Jagadeesh Mavinahalli Not yet available in Telugu. This review is for the English version translated really well by Sandeep Balakrishna. But Byrappa does lot of homework, with hard evidence for his logic to be proved. The book throws light on harsh truths of history that have been consciously hidden by the progressive intellectuals, in the interest of harmony. Lastly, there is absolutely no doubt that such a gem of a book would have been limited to one state had it not been for the brilliant efforts of Aavaraja Balakrishna.

Book Review | Aavarana: The Veil – Livemint

But what’s incredible is that he gives all the reasoning within the novel itself. This is one of the most controversial novel by bhairappa, in this he has basically explored how our history has been distorted by so called secular people as well as communists.

Satyameva Jayate – Truth alone triumphs! The novel raises pertinent and searching questions about religion, liberalism and identity and highlights the importance of unshackling oneself from the bonds of false knowledge.

The Veil raises pertinent and searching questions about religion, liberalism and identity, and highlights the importance of unshackling oneself from the bonds of false knowledge. Here is when the author’s politically incorrect storytelling commences. Yet India has not only survived but thrived and as hitchens put it — there will always be an India.

Ingredients for Main Dish: So, as work aaarana fiction it isn’t as engaging as ‘Parva’-the only other work of Bhyrappa which I have read, and which is a masterpiece.


Her revolutionary agenda is defeated when she reads and learns. Dr Bhyrappa is an avid listener of both Indian and Western classical music and has a keen eye for Art.

One ought read the book for this. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. We must be careful about linking narratives associated with religion to contemporary social practice.

Aavarana – The Veil

He is not the progressive and liberal person she thought he was. The parts of the novel I found most convincing as fiction were, by contrast to the main body, the novella about Mughal India that Lakshmi herself writes.

Despite her father being completely against the marriage, she breaks ties with him and changes her name to Razia. I read Sandeep Balakrishnan’s English translation of this Kannada novel. As for the left wing — ignorance has never helped anybody said marx and the new India is all set to follow your leader on that note, after all the Indian DNA can never resist a good argument.
