Rama Of The Axe: An Avatar Gets His Due

In Rama of the Axe, author Ranjith Radhakrishnan brings avatar Parashurama to life.Finally — the last Parashurama story I read was K M Munshi’s Bhagavan Parasurama (Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, 1988), a badly translated version of the original Gujarati edition — the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu has got his due.Perhaps, it’s the rising receptivity of Dharmic-Indic ideas that are redefining twenty-first century India. Or the new resurgence of the Sanatan way of life that had been smothered in the first seven decades of India’s Independence. Whatever the case, in Rama of the Axe Radhakrishnan simultaneously rides modern times and carts ancient philosophies.
