Book Aavarana Author S. Rate Product. I have read Marathi transkation of the book. The study Dr. Bhyrappa has done tries to make the novel 'avarana free'.

You will feel the cruelty of muslim emporers. Our hindu culture and varanasi temple was at its peak. Yogesh Bhat Aug, Shrishail Mulawad Certified Buyer Jan, There are many historical facts that are intentionally suppressed and distorted in our history textbooks. Chief among them are the atrocities committed by the Muslim rulers of India during the Mughal rule with the exception of Akbar - systematic destruction of Hindu temples around 30, of them in India , destruction of universities and Hindu schools of thought, high taxes and pilgrimage tax for the Hindus, renaming of several Indian towns and cities by Muslim names etc.
The intention of Srinivas Kirthy Oct, A must read book.. The perception is thought provoking. It reveals a whole journey of India under rule of outsides, their sufferings, changes to lifestyle, culture, administration of natives. Good research of Indian history. Thanks for bringing about the facts.
This was the real history and what the schools taught us was all a lie. Amazingly written book on how history and how it is mis taught in our schools and so on and so forth. One would be just blown away by reading just 2 pages of Preface Pravesha. I think its difficult for an average man to describe how good this book is, considering the amount of work author has put in it.

Aavarana was sold out even before its release in February Like most of Bhyrappa's novels, Aavarana too generated tremendous debate and discussion.

On the other hand, the writer's original posit that the Truth  needs to be told has connected with the readers that it has seen repeated reprintings.
