Asura: Tale of the Vanquished dares to narrate the tale of the Asura people. Blending mythology, religion, and history, the audiobook narrates the tale from Ravana and Bhadra's perspective. The book talks about how the Asura community is more liberal than the orthodox Deva clan, which was highly biased. It also attacks the evil practices of the Brahmin caste.

This is the ultimate book of lists throwing light on the "firsts" of planet Earth. The origin of man, the birth and death of civilizations, wars and empires, the beginning of the universe - all this and more is covered in this comprehensive journey in to the past, present and future. And Madan makes it all so enjoyable. With his easy flowing style and ready humor, he turns a complex voyage in a time machine into a walk in the park.

This audio book by Madhan does differentiates itself by sticking on to hard archeological evidences. especially Indians (common people) used to skewed history as ingested from indian movies (like bollywood), should find this intriguing.
