Book Review: The Bhairav Putras

Author: Suhail Mathur

In a single word, the apt description for the book is “brilliant”. I am in awe at the incredible research that has been done to bring out the authenticity of the story amidst the backdrop of the Indian freedom struggle.

The story begins in the year 1936 and is majorly based in the lively town of Bhairavgarh famous for its gigantic golden statue of Lord Bhairav that’s stood the test of time despite the plundering invaders of the century. However, the serenity of the hustling town is disturbed when the British set up their cantonment in the area. True to their oppressive and tyrannical nature the British shower ruthless aggression on the innocent residents and even hurt religious and cultural sentiments plunging the town into a state of darkness, and threatening to permanently absolve the area of its heritage.

However, a young group of revolutionaries let by the dynamic Keshav Raichand raise to the occasion and embark on a sojourn filled with adventure, deceit, and divine intervention. Here on the story takes incredible twists and turns involving the heroic fights and escapades of the revolutionaries, helped by mysterious powers they don’t fathom till the end of the successful movement.

Finally, brain and wit lethally combined with valor emerge victorious and the British are driven out of Bhairavgarh for good, returning the town to its past glory that remains even to date.

The book is a must-read particularly if you love historical fiction. Its one unputdownable!!!
