A Science Fiction roller coaster ride Muhana – Maya Jaal By Dharmendra Mishra

Will we really be able to find out the truth about the genesis of evolution v/s the actual reality of this universe? Read my book review of Muhana - Maya Jaal By Dharmendra Mishra.


मनुष्य कल्पना पहले करता है जो ज्ञान के रूप में मन मस्तिष्क में संरछित रहता है, समय के साथ प्रयोग द्वारा सिद्ध होने पर विज्ञानं होजाता है, या यूँ कहे विज्ञानं ज्ञान का प्रायोगिक रूपांतरण है लेकिन मानव मस्तिष्क ज्ञान और विज्ञानं का अनुभव एक तरह से गतिशीलता के माध्यम से करता है या कहे समय के साथ जो की मानव मस्तिष्क का बोध है जोकि दुनिया में उपलब्ध हर जीव के लिए अलग- अलग होता है जिसका सीधा प्रभाव उनके जीवन संरचना, आयु पे पड़ता है ।

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction indeed. What might indicate doom or the end to one might actually be the onset of a new beginning for another. That is why it is said that we, humans live in a world where anything is possible. Especially, now with the advent of modern technology, I’d say we are advancing towards a stage where it won’t be wrong to state that we have become such avid slaves of innovation and technology that we seem to be disrupting the fine equilibrium of nature itself.

In such a scenario, when a book such as Muhana, Dharmendra Mishra’s latest comes across, one cannot help but think about the true repercussions of what technology as well as the overuse of technology as well as that of the disadvantages science can have on our humankind. With an excellent backdrop of Quantum Physics and science fiction, Muhana comes across as an adventure which is the first in the series of a promising new Hindi adventure fiction to have hit the stands.

A story exploring the depths of science as well as understanding its fine balances alongside humanity, Muhana by Dharmendra Mishra is a book that paves the way for the rest of the story to form and set up its ideal appearance as well as develop its actual base right in this first one itself.

Science fiction especially the adventure-based genre has always been a subject matter of deep interest to me as I feel that somehow it is tricky to create such a huge plethora of fantastic, fascinating information, alongside creating characters that are impactful, the plot crisp and the overall storyline relatable. That is why somehow writers generally somewhat avoid foraying into this area, I feel. That is because science fiction is also one of those genres which definitely needs a bit of research beforehand and one cannot deny the fact that a fair amount of data needs to be assimilated and analyzed even if one decides to explore a fantastical science concept.

In such a scenario, Dharmendra has not only managed to create intriguing characters, but he has also ensured that there is reasonable relativity and wavelength created for the audiences to latch onto the characters and also stay hooked as this is the first in a probably multipart series which will be genuinely captivating.

A journey encapsulating fantasy, mystery as well as an enthralling adventure, not only was I intrigued by the characters of Gini, G1, DKP, Tim and others, I was equally mesmerized by the way he has used physics to build upon the plot in an enticing manner. The story was fast-paced and did not make me feel bored for even a minute albeit there was a lot of character and story building happening in this one which has nevertheless taken up quite a bit of this first book. However, having said that the writing is great with a reasonable amount of research having been put forth on science as well as physics. Dharmendra manages to successfully set the bar for the next books of the series, building and paving way for what shall probably transpire in this rigmarole of science and the evil side of humanity.
