Indian kids get their own superhero
Kevin Missal was always on the lookout for an Indian super hero and when he did find one, he couldn't resist the urge to tell the story of an 'Avatar of Vishnu' to the world.
Kalamos Literary Services in association with "Jashn Events" celebrated the launch of "Dharmyoddha Kalki", a Book on avatar of Vishnu by Kevin Missal's at Oxford Book Store, Delhi. This book explores every individual's responsibilities towards society.
The book revolves around Kalki Hari, son of Vishnuyath and Sumati. Born in the quiet village of Shambala, Kalki has no idea about his heritage until he is pitted against tragedies and battles.
Whisked into the province of Keekatpur, which is under the fist of Lord Kali, Kalki sees the ignominy of death trumping life all around him. He learns that he has been born to cleanse the world he lives in, for which he must journey to the North and learn the ways of Lord Vishnu's Avatar; from an immortal who wields an axe. But trapped in the midst of betrayals, political intrigue and forces that seek to decimate him, will he be able to follow his destiny before the Kaliyug begins?
Kevin Missal at the time of launch said, "I always wanted to create an Indian Hero. Since childhood I looked up to Percy Jackson, Pendragon, Harry Potter and I have never read about an Indian hero. So my journey starts from there, I began fleshing out a god who was not properly explored and I made a hero that young kids could look up to. So if someone asked me what Kalki is, I would say it's about creating childhoods. I began researching about Kalki, who was created out of the Huna and shaka invasion, according to history. I researched for two years and completed the book in a month."
