Let me begin by saying that Arya Dharma by Bollachettira Dhyan Appachu is meant for a niche audience. If you are amongst those who love to read about India and Indian history and culture then you are sure to love this book.
At over 600 pages this book gives you an intricately detailed work. This book shows us the years of research and the strong belief of the author. The writing of the author has a conviction which doesn’t go unnoticed. Rather, the way the author puts across a point, it hits a nerve with the readers. The book reminds you of the minutest details about Indian sanskriti which we have forgotten over the years. And it does so with much aplomb.
If I say that every Indian should read this book then I won’t be wrong. Because this is one of the finest work on Indian culture that I have read in the recent times. The author keeps the language simple and to the point. Throughout the book he gives multiple references of seers and saints and articles we can read up online. The author delves a lot deeper into the Indian history and culture by bringing to us the references and concepts from Upanishads, Manusmriti, Arthashashta; he explains to us the four phases of our lives as spoken in the Indian culture, the concept of Karma, Dharma, Kaam, Artha and Moksha, Swaraj. And that’s just not the end of it. The author digs much deeper that you can imagine. The content packs a punch and is sure to leave the readers astounded.
What I loved the most, amongst everything else that I read, was how easily the author explained that ancient times did not restrict a person to change his Varna and he pens this with ample of examples. I also loved to read author’s thoughts on shakti and women empowerment. This book is heavily researched but isn’t of academic nature. However, in my view schools and colleges should definitely include it in the curriculum so that our gennext knows of their roots and learns and relearns about it.
Once again I stress that this book is meant to be read by one and all. It may have a niche audience but what this book will teach you, that is sure to stay with you today and forever.
