Synopsis

Vikram is an unsuspecting average graduate Indian student in America who is unable to stand up to protect his interests. His life revolves around him being spineless and yearning for success. On one such bleak night after his day long suffering, he is abducted by a crazy man aboard a space ship called the Juggernaut. As Vikram reels back into reality he begins to wonder whether he is dead.

Lord Krit, an ancient being of supreme power travels across the galactic space to arrive at Earth (Pritu) with a mission of restoring dharma. He is aided by his companions Mulos and Maya who no longer have physical form but remain in Lord Krit’s consciousness. Lord Krit’s past crusades and avatars have shaped the history of the world and in that process he has created many nemeses. One such nemesis, Salwa, who was defeated by Lord Krit eons ago, seeks revenge.

Vikram begins to be enlightened by the crazy man, Garad and is slowly transformed from an average kid to a strong man. Lord Krit continues with his mission of bringing back the lost kingdom of Kumari Kandam and in the process brings about destruction.

When this ancient being of supernatural powers revered as god in the scriptures returns to claim his lost relic, Vikram realizes his potential and has to stand up to save the Earth. With his past connected to a mythological hero Vikram undergoes metamorphoses from a timid teenager to a super hero by genetically enhancing his body.

Juggernaut: The fall of Pritu is an Indian Mythological SciFi termed as Vedic SciFi that tells the story of Indian gods as ancient aliens and the stories as their misdoings. It speculates the scripture as a record of ancient people witnessing extra-terrestrial warfare and politics. It portrays the gods as mere beings with shortcomings and universal desires.

It all comes down to a duel between good and bad from the perspective of the human beings and the ability of a kid to face off a supreme being.

It is such a welcome change to read something from an Indian author which is not a sob or introspection story. It is a bold move to write something the way you have written - which genre does it fall into - mytho? sci-fi? thriller? its really great to keep everyone guessing. Splendid job!

Hi Ravi,
Lucid writing. I liked the spacing of the factors of intrigue through the chapters. They grab the attention and hold it. And I would place the blame squarely on you for my lack of sleep now when I have started thinking how the story is going to pan out and end. :-) Would love to read the book. All the best.

Warm regards
Sudhansu

It started off with promise, but soon got lost in a haze. Read more like the script of Roll No.21, a popular Pogo animation. The author has potential but once Vikram falls to the ground, everything else falls too.
