Product description

Review

Stories unite the world and they are worth fighting for . . . The core of this fantastical tale is a message for all eternity. - Anupam Kher (actor and author of Lessons Life Taught Me, Unknowingly: An Autobiography) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir

In the true spirit of our master storyteller ancestors from Kashmir, Kaul builds a mesmerizing maze of a narrative. Read him for this very pure joy. - Rahul Pandita (journalist and author of Our Moon Has Blood Clots: A Memoir of a Lost Home in Kashmir) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir

Brilliant, original and magically creative, Rakesh Kaul's Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir sees Kashmiri wisdom come alive through the genre of science fiction. - Padma Shri Amitabh Mattoo (foundation director of the Australia India Institute) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir

Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir is an epic novel in the style of Brave New World, but it goes much further beyond that classic. Set in 3000 AD, it presents a dystopic vision of the world that is run using mind control and AI. It is the story of the last free individuals who challenge the tyrant and eventually triumph. A story at many different levels, its deepest narrative is about the workings of Universal Consciousness. The book connects this story-set in the future-with the mystical past of Kashmir. It is a book to be savoured in multiple ways. A tour de force! - Padma Shri Subhash Kak (regents professor emeritus, Oklahoma State University) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir

Rakesh Kaul's book dishes out a kaleidoscopic admixture of fabulation, metafiction, futurism and fantasy. Kashmir, in the author's consciousness, as it emerges in the tripartite structure of the narrative becomes a syntagm of "all Indic folk stories": The Body, The Mind and finally, Life. Kaul's book reflects an epicentric shift from the millennial to the cataclysmic and climatically closes the narrative with a pronounced shift to an optimistic renewal, as in the Biblical Revelation: "After the demonic apocalypse, a new heaven and a new earth will emerge". The book is a must for scholars and teachers alike. - Ashok Aima (vice chancellor, Central University of Jammu) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir

Skillfully weaving these age-old Niti stories together with everything from extraordinarily imaginative futuristic science and technology to the history of Kashmir and the remarkable contributions its people have made to the world, Kaul illuminates not just the vital importance of the love and strength held in the heart of every woman, but the unimaginable power of the cosmic feminine force. - Teri Degler (author of The Divine Feminine Fire: Creativity and Your Yearning to Express Your Self) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir

One wonders at the mind of an author who so poetically yet powerfully, imaginatively yet injunctively, weaves together not only the past and the present but, this time, also the future. A novel truly for our anchorless lives and times, Dawn is part-fantasy, part-reality, but always authentic truth. Riveting stuff-and such fun along the way! - Shonaleeka Kaul (professor of ancient history, Centre for Historical Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir

The modern-yet-ancient Niti story told by Rakesh Kaul both preserves and revives the "story" of Kashmir itself. Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir is blessed with some amazing pratibha of his own having inexplicable insights into the ancient yogic science preserved by the Kashmiri Pandits so many centuries ago in texts . . . Yet, the story of Dawn is one of universal Awakening that pertains to all and is not limited to Kashmir. In praising the omnipresence of Maha, he proclaims that the role of the Kashmiri Pandit is to preserve the collective memory of the great awakening that occurred in Kashmir for the sake of all beings. - Christopher Tompkins (scholar of Kashmir, University of California, Berkeley) ― Praise for Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing read
By Mohd Zishan on 31 January 2021
The book, 'Dawn The Warrior Princess of Kashmir', is a combination of sci-fi, mythology, history, and the modern world written by the author Rakesh. K. Kaul. This book is a wonderful concept which is way beyond my imagination.
.
The main protagonist of the story is just a 16 year old girl named "Dawn" who is depicted as the only living girl in her Kingdom. She has to fight against the evil world. Her journey of becoming a Warrior Princess is discussed in this book. The strong determination and power of Dawn are well beautifully described throughout the plot. The struggles she faced, the difficulties in between are things that make her worthy as the Warrior of Kashmir.
.
This book is a beautiful collection of suspense, mystery, action, mythology, and what not. You will learn about the culture and the traditions of Kashmir. The book is an interesting mixture of the latest in Genetics, and Artificial Intelligence, coupled with the age-old wisdom of Niti stories which showed to Dawn, how to overcome insurmountable odds to save humanity from annihilation.
.
My insights :-
I really enjoyed reading this book.
The cover of the book goes so well with the story.
I definitely recommend this book to all the readers.
Happy Reading!
