When you write a book, it usually resonates with your personality to a very large extent. Sometimes it is highly influenced by your profession/ upbringing or your innate nature in general. And sometimes your alter ego guides your pen. In either way, a book is an author's baby and it a reflection of what all is going on the author's mind.

I am a kind of reader who starts right from the first page of a book till the last. I read all the publication information, about the author, prologue etc etc. However, this book looked too fascinating and different from the cover, so I decided to devour the story right away. However after reading 3 or 4 pages, I was forced to read about the author. He just couldn't be from a literary background. There had to be a scientific educational background as the facts were too vivid and technical ( with isotopes in particular if you understand what I mean). Turned out I was right. Mr Bakshi is an electrical engineer by profession who wanted to pursue theoretical physics as his career. That pretty much explains  the super technical angle of this book. He is fond of science fiction too and that is very obvious right from the start.
This story is set in the future, about 2 million years past 2050 AD to be precise. The earth is no more (obviously) and so are the humans. The new planet Bhoomi is inhabited by Manavas. There are mainly two residential cities: Madhavpur and Ayudhpur.
This story is set far in the future with important characters from our Hindu mythology. Krishna is given the task to set up a new, safe place for Manavas before an apocalypse sets in and destroys Bhoomi. He is of course faced with several challenges. He himself is at threat as there is someone who wants to destroy him and each Manava.
Will Krishna be able to rescue this race as he did during the last Yuga?

What I loved about this book:
It's really fast paced and you feel that you are watching a science fiction movie with the situations so vividly described.
