The ending with her son suddenly appearing also seems a little contrived. It boldly unveils how History is moulded by the writers and propagandists to fulfill their own narrow interests.

Ejglish was a fantastic read for me who is a product or a victim of the history distorted by marxists. While the story runs between the two avarana Mughal era and the present timesone cannot help but notice the irony that not much has changed.

Her father with whom she severed all ties, passes away and he leaves her something that changes her life altogether. Read more Read less. Her research takes shape in the form of a novel-within-a-novel; wherein her protagonist is a Rajput prince caught by the Muslim invaders. The book digs deep into the definition of history, its effect on the present day, the role of religion and makes the reader wonder if the left is really aavarnaa and liberal as they project themselves to be.

A very thought provoking read egnlish meshed up the past and the present and the ever going feud between religions. What a brilliant book. We must be careful about linking narratives associated with religion to contemporary social practice. Ananthamurthywell known in Kannada literaturehas criticised Bhyrappa and his works, engoish Aavarana as dangerous. I see a lot of research has been put in wiritng this. I would say this is a great book, that needs to be read with an open mind!


A very thought provoking read which meshed up the past and the present and the ever going feud between engoish. Most of his novels are translated into almost all the Indian languages and six into English.

It’s dialogue “The goal of studying history is to know the truth”. Interested in history of india. Well, if you think that these historians are being criticised unjustly, just have a look at history text books of ours.

And the attempt is not to flare emotions – that can be judged from the author’s matter of fact approach to events than dramatization. The novel was a bestseller in Kannada, Gujarati, Tamil and other vernacular languages.

Aavarana – The Veil by S.L. Bhyrappa (4 star ratings)

I dont think I have seen this narration style anywhere. The question lingers as to how can the author justify a character like aavvarana, though at the end the author not only justifies it but does it in way that leaves no doubt in readers mind.

Aavadana could write my review as a form of my blog based on the confidence the authors research has given me. However, if anyone has doubts about the facts can refer to the books I have listed in my book. Archived from the original on Satyameva Jayate – Truth alone triumphs! Hence, the book is a must read for anyone with some basic understanding of enylish sense and balance who would like to know the extent to which lies have been fed in the name of history in India.


After all his novels get ennglish out even before their release. I would highly recommend it! Very good book to read. Thanks for bringing about the facts.

Aavarana – The Veil

Indeed, I have englih some of the references that Bhyrappa cleverly inserted in the narrative. A must read specially in the given Indian political context.

aaavarana I could not put the book down once I picked it up. 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. In a literary career spanning over fifty years he has authored twenty-two novels, which have been translated into most of the major Indian languages, including Urdu. The environment of vicious propaganda against Hinduism that we are living in, it was a must read.

If the repetition were not there, the author could have added more substance. Must read if you think you are better than savarana in kannada. He has trekked in the Alps, the Rockies, Andes engkish in Fujiama, but the Himalayas remain his greatest passion.

He talks about how the japanese and germans have understood their past and accepted their sins. Though the author must be lauded for his scholarship and style, both mighty impressive, what captures one’s mind is his intellectual integrity and courage.
