This Book contains two thought-provoking stories — “Brahma: Four-Headed Federal System,” and «Indra’s Foe: Vrtra’s Last Wish.” In the first story, the author takes Brahma, the Creator of the Universe in Hindu Mythology. Brahma has Four Heads, and the author's imagination engages the Four Heads in a debate about the present and future of the World, that reveal much about vague ideologies like Communism, and questions modern democratic systems. The second story is based on characters from Rg Veda — Indra, Vritra and Vamadeva. Vritra is the archetype snake villain, and Indra is hailed for killing him. Through the story, the author, posing Indra and Vritra in a peculiar situation just before Vritra's death, questions whether a villain is really a villain, and a hero is really a hero. A must read for modern interpretation of Hindu Mythology. It is the author's journey into the great minds of ancient sages.
