Author Amish releases his much-awaited book Raavan - Enemy Of Aryavarta in Mumbai

Renowned author Amish launched the long-awaited third book in the Ram Chandra Series – Raavan - Enemy of Aryavarta at Crossword bookstore in Kemps CornerThe store was jam-packed with eager readers and fans, many of whom had been waiting outside the store for the event to begin. The launch was also carried via Facebook Livestreamfor readers and fans from other cities, who could not be present at the launch event in Mumbai. Published by Westland, Raavan - Enemy of Aryavarta traces the life of Raavan, right from his birth to the time he abducts Lady Sita. Pre-release copies of the book have already been generating tremendous interest in the character of a man often considered to be history’s greatest villain; a pirate, a scholar, a warrior, and the mighty king of Lanka.


Elaborating further on the novel, Amish said, "Raavan is one of the most complex, violent, passionate and accomplished men of all time. A man who will love without reward and kill without remorse. He suffers greatly, and he usually reacts to that suffering with anger and hatred. The fact that he was supremely talented made the impact of his rage that much more spine-chilling. This is probably the darkest book I have ever written and it just emerged that way. I hope that the readers like the book"
