Book Review of "The Hidden Hindu". Author, Akshat Gupta.

“Science is a way of discovering the secrets of the universe, while spirituality is a way of understanding the reason behind everything.”

Surajit Roy

The book starts with a bang, which is one of the best things about it. The first scene takes place in 2041, when an old lady and Prithvi, a 20-year-old man, are talking about something that happened in the past. It was an unbelievable and tragic incident that defies all logic and reasoning, and it changed their lives forever.

Soon after, we are taken to a remote research facility in the heart of the Andaman Islands. The plot thickens quickly and the reader is hooked throughout the story. The mission is highly covert and the reader is kept in suspense.

The Hidden Hindu’s ability to flawlessly intertwine mythological events from thousands of years ago with historical events and events in the recent past is one of its major plus points. Stories of puranic characters like Sushen, Lakshman, Vidur, etc are connected to modern historical figures like Subhash Chandra Bose.

About The Author

Akshat Gupta is the successful owner of a restaurant chain, but his true passion lies in writing.

Book Introduction – The Hidden Hindu

A 21 year-old named Prithvi is trying to find a man named Om Shastri who was captured and taken to an isolated Indian island more than 200 years ago. Om was drugged and interrogated, and during this interrogation he claimed to have witnessed all four yugas (the epochs in Hinduism) and even participated in both Ramayana and Mahabharata. The team that was interrogating Om also discovers that he had been in search of the other immortals from every yuga. These bizarre secrets could shake up the ancient beliefs of the present and alter the course of the future.

Book Highlights

The Storyline

The story is about a mythological creature who is trying to find his place in the world. The story is easy to follow and the creature is well developed. However, the climax of the story is a bit abrupt and hurried. The Hindu mythology is full of diversity, including mythical and factual stories. The concepts of birth, rebirth, immortality, purgatory and the ascended masters are some of the ideas that make it interesting for writers and readers.

The ‘Aghori’

“‘Aghori’. The word in itself is enough to send shivers down the spine. There are stories about Aghoris in each and every, hamlet of India and Nepal. It is said that they process unlimited power over nature, can conquer death, materialize object, eat human flesh and faces and live in extreme impurity, sometimes totally naked.”

“The Hidden Hindu” is a mind-boggling mythological thriller which deals with the past and present life of an Aghori named Om Shashtri. This person claims to be some past characters from the time of Ramayana and Mahabharata. He says he was Shusen, a Vedic doctor who saved Laxmana’s life; he was Vidhur, the Mahamantri of Hastinapur; Subhas Chandra Bose, the great freedom fighter and many more. Throughout this novel, a group of six scientists interrogate Om Shashtri and the story goes on.

“The Hidden Hindu” is an interesting novel that tells the story of Om Shastri, an Aghori who claims to be several historical figures from Hindu mythology. Throughout the novel, a group of six scientists interrogate Om Shastri and try to figure out if he is telling the truth. The novel is a mind-boggling thriller that will keep readers guessing until the very end.

Storytelling and character design

The book “The Hidden Hindu” appeals to me because it is one of a kind and engaging. The author’s study prior to the writing of the book is perhaps the most notable and perceptible fact. The accuracy of his facts, together with his mastery of arithmetic, will not go unnoticed to readers. At the same time, he has an extensive understanding of the scientific elements of the subjects he raises through the characters. The characters were so carefully represented that the height, tone and personality of each character were provided. Even if everything was delivered in the first pages, which were a bit strange to read, everything was meaningful.

“‘What were you doing as Om Shastri in Varanasi?’
‘Searching.’
‘Searching? For?’
‘Subhash Chandra Bose.'”

This book is really exciting and has a lot of twists and turns. The narrator’s voice is really clear and sharp. There are a lot of historical and mythical parallels in this book, but mostly it is a thriller. The book ends on a suspenseful note, which makes the reader really want to read the next book in the trilogy.

The unending cosmic loop of yugas

The unending cosmic loop of yugas is a never-ending cycle of time that repeats itself over and over again. It is described in the book, “The Hidden Hindu” by the author, who has written about the Hindu concept of time. The cycle of yugas is said to last for 4.32 billion years, and it is said to be divided into four parts: the Satya Yuga, the Treta Yuga, the Dvapara Yuga, and the Kali Yuga. Each of these yugas is said to last for 1.08 billion years, and each is said to be followed by a period of rest called the Sandhya. The cycle then repeats itself, with the Satya Yuga followed by the Treta Yuga, and so on.
