The Code Of Manavas by Arpit Bakshi
About the book-
Book one of the Maha Vishnu Trilogy, The Code of Manavas, is set some two million years past ad 2050, when earth as we know it ceased to exist and so did mankind. A new race, the Manavas, now exists on Bhoomi, the erstwhile Earth, which is divided into two cities—Madhavpur and Ayudhpur. In the quiet and peaceful city of Madhavpur, a reclusive Krishna is busy with an immense task. He has to prepare a new abode for the Manavas before an impending apocalypse destroys them. He knows something that nobody else does—the Manavas are running out of time faster than they can imagine and there are no inhabitable planets to escape to. To make matters worse, there is someone in Madhavpur who wants to destroy Krishna and subjugate each Manava. The Manavas, it seems, are doomed. Yet Krishna knows there is a slim chance of survival for the Manavas, although there is a huge price to be paid for it. Will the various factions of the Manavas unite for the greater good? Will Krishna, who saved them during the turn of the last Yuga, be able to save them now? What will be the price to pay? Enter the mythical world of Maha Vishnu and get swept up in a fast-paced suspenseful narrative.
We have all heard about global warming and how it's effecting our earth and how in the long run it will do us all in. Right?
We have also read the conspiracy theories and the 'conspiracy theories'. But this book is very different, it tells the story of the world that comes after world we now know is no more. It's long after our earth is no more and this new earth called Bhoomi has come into existence. If one has to give a rough estimation it will come around 2 million years past 2050. Man, the most modern one at that has been replaced by Manavas but his problems remain the same. At least if one concentrates at the very basic points.
We have a smart and interesting and very intuitive chap, Krishna. And take my word for it, you would love to have a chat with him but given he is not busy with his work or thinking about Radhika.
I enjoyed this book alot. Technically it marks the end of 2018 for me, which is incidentally a big coincidence. Not saying anything more, cause otherwise I will start giving spoilers.
In short, me a not so big lover of Lord Krishna, really loved him here and that deserves a big 5 on 5 stars.
Would also love to thank @arpitbakshi @rupa_publications and @readersarcadia for this wonderful book
