Vanara the legend of Baali Sugreeva and Tara

Baali and Sugreeva of the Vana Nara tribe were orphan brothers who were born in abject poverty and grew up as slaves like most of their fellow tribesmen They were often mocked as the vanaras the monkey men Sandwiched between the never ending war between the Deva tribes in the north and the Asura tribes in the south the Vana Naras seemed to have lost all hope But Baali was determined not to die a slave Aided by his beloved brother Sugreeva Baali built a country f. Continuing to give the voice to the vanuished this time Anand Neelakantan chose to voice Baali The great Vanara king from Ramayana who was slained in a sibling rivalry Like his other books this one also starts with a bull s eye attempt to target the hypocrisy of caste hirarchy of those times Vanaras who are considered as lowly of the lowliest are the forest living uncultured people who are destined to be Dasas slaves Attitudes of both the warring clans Asuras and Devas are indifferent to them they are mere slaves to both the clans Even Vanaras have compromised with this and they think that they are destined to be slaves forever Till one day a boy coming out form abject poverty and slavery decides to take a stand against everything and everyone to built a kingdom for his people Hence starts a story of rise and fall of the Vanara Empire The book starts off really well The initial half of the book describes the start of Baali and Sugreeva s journey of taking initiative for their people s soverginity and later in the first half gives a good start to the love triangle Sugreeva and Baali both love Tara in their own ways and it was a good attempt to give both of the lead characters their own uniue personalities The only problem with the initial part was that too much attention was given to develop Baali and Sugreeva as compared to that of Tara But the first half was uite balanced where the love triangle and Baali s determination to raise the kingdom were portrayed nicely At first glace the book seemed a very promising one but the later half was loaded with many problems I have read two books before this one by Anand Neelakantan both of them being of Ajaya series The best thing I liked about those books was that all the characters acted in a grey area The shade of the grey may vary but they were grey But in this book Baali and Sugreeva are painted in black and white where Baali is flawless protagonist who has a very charismatic and overpowering personality and Sugreeva is his vengeful and spiteful brother This entire set up reminded me of a very familiar Thor Loki Angle These two characters deteriorates as the novel proceeds After Tara s marriage to Bali Sugreeva becomes a psycho obsessive lover and I never understood what did author want to do with Baali s character The character becomes stupid and dumb in the later half of the bookThis was not enough the worst was yet to come Tara though the character started developing late in the book there was one instance where she shines and I thought that she would be a strongly built character But all my hopes were shattered after she marries Baali After marriage she becomes a victim of an obsessive lover and never utters a word about it to her husband There is a very radiculous chapter in the book where she is disrespected throughout the chapter and this was handled very casually in the novel It was the worst thing I have ever read in any novel At one point the book only remains about Tara her physical attractiveness and the men lusting after herTo focus on the obsessive lust of Sugreeva everything else was thrown out of window All of a sudden Baali becomes friends with the elders council who were is biggest opposition during the initial period of the book they proudly used to say that they are Van Naras not Vanaras but later they take it very casually when someone called them Vanaras Baali wanted his people to be civilised but throughout the book all of them behaved in animalistic manner A very disappointing book

Anand Neelakantan Ù 8 SUMMARY

Greeva Tara became the cause of a fraternal war that would change history for everThe love triangle between Baali Tara and Sugreeva is arguably the world's first Written by Anand Neelakantan who gave a voice to Ravana in Asura Duryodhana in the Ajaya series and Sivagami in the Baahubali series Vanara is a classic tale of love lust and betrayal Shakespearean in its tragic depth and epic in its sweep Vanara gives voice to the greatest warrior in the Ramayana Baali. Anand s narrative style continues to be incoherant and isnt the smooth flowing narrative style that a mythology based story telling should be Here Bali is painted in glorified hues while Sugreeva is almost like a bollywood villain The story line follows a known pattern from his previous novel Asura where the story is in pole apart from the conventional storylines that most of us have been brought up with and hence jarrs at times but the narrative style is pretty poor to be classed along with great storytellersInteresting plot but laborious read Disappointing once again
