Bhagavad Gita

(Modern Reading and Scientific Study)

C. Radhakrishnan makes use of the methodology of science for a thorough analysis of ancient Indian philosophy, making this book the first ever scientific reading of the Gita.

The Bhagavad Gita is not considered as a religious text in this work but as the simplest form of yoga sastra. This ancient wisdom cleansed of all superstitions can help anyone lead a successful and happy life in the modern world with freedom from all sorrow; irrespective of religion, gender, nationality, caste or creed. Never before has successful Vedantic vision in regular day to day life explored in such simple and feasible manner as in this.

The book is the trans-creation of Gitadarsanam, the commentary of the Bhagavad Gita in the Malayalam language by the same author.

The Indian edition was first published in December 2016.

Cosmology in Vedanta

-The Physics Correlation

(Free e-book)

(Formerly - The Secret Behind the Universe)

Get the free e-book in any format including pdf.

Exploring the secrets of the Universe as far as physics can go, and even beyond.. Along with its Vedantic integration.

This book has two sections. The first section is a work in physics which presents an in-depth exploration of Avyakta - the hidden metaphysical reality behind the apparent universe - through scientific study. A condensed version of this part was published in the Prespacetime Journal Vol 7 Issue 16 on 08/01/2017, titled "Avyakta - The Fabric of Space". This section of the book attempts to explore the role of avyakta behind various phenomena like matter waves, energy in the vacuum state, spiral arms of galaxies, dark matter, Higgs boson and virtual particles, big bang and cosmic inflation, and the anti-particle.

The second section of the book presents in-depth study of cosmology as outlined in ancient Indian Philosophy, researching from the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads. Since God cannot be considered in physics due to lack of experimental evidence, this section is provided as a separate part!

The first book of its kind, it brings the diverse fields of Science and Philosophy into face-to-face contact. It is a thrilling journey for all types of readers interested in science or Vedanta.

Birds That Fly Ahead


English translation of Munpeparakkunna Pakshikal

Translated by Kairali Narayanan
The book presents many an untold part of the left-extremist upsurge that took place in India four decades back and the way it has influenced the fabric of life ever since. It has been a bestseller running into more than a dozen editions and winning as many major awards. It is a modern Indian classic, the work of a master craftsman, different in style, rich in content, revealing and enticing.

It forms part of a nine-novel cluster that in fact is an assemblage of three trilogies in a row - the first nostalgic-cultural, the second socio-scientific and the third scientific-politico-philosophical - embracing all aspects of the metamorphosis that befell life in the subcontinent after the second world war. The last of the cluster - Now for a Tearful Smile - was the first to become globally available; this novel is the first of the third trilogy. However, any of the nine volumes is self-sufficient and can be enjoyed independently.

Heart-rending Times


English translation of Karal Pilarum Kaalam.

Translated by Kairali Narayanan.

How much can a woman take without breaking down? A great lot more than ever imagined is what this book portrays. Most epics and, later, classical works of literature have women made to walk on fire, but Anuradha lives in a veritable inferno. At critical moments of despair and pain she is surprised by the array of strange personalities emerging from deep within her own self.

In ways how unusual can a man love a woman? No one can say is what one will think after experiencing this saga. How selfish and cruel can intense love turn when spurned? As much as one finds in here.

What does vengeance do to the person in his teens harboring it? And what all drives a mother to act in ways so bewildering in circumstances never faced before in human history?

Heart-Rending Times is distributed in India by Prism, Bangalore.

Now For a Tearful Smile


English translation of Iniyoru Nirakanchiri.

Translated by Kairali Narayanan.

This is a unique and poignant love story of two very special people living under assumed identities for different reasons; and also a thriller chasing the intriguing tentacles of espionage activities and the untold stories behind political assassinations in India.

The translator notes: "This landmark novel, a socio-political silhouette of contemporary India, is a poignant juxtaposition of materialism and spirituality, contemporary geopolitics and history in the making, India and the world, urban and tribal cultures, tragedy and comedy, saints and sinners, displacement and assimilation, cyanide tablets and self-healing, arms and man, war and peace, hospitals and hermitages... innumerable are the strands that form the warp and weft of this literary milestone. It thrills, threatens, moves, shocks, calms and exhilarates! The catharsis I experienced after reading the original impelled me to seek the writer's permission and translate it for readers beyond borders, as all good things must be shared and joy multiplies in the process!"
