Mythology according to him is a belief present in a certain group of people which cannot be disproven or is better not tried to be meddled with. He tell us how seas and oceans were formed, how the Vindyas came to be

Social evils like rape, consumption of tobacco, alcohol and drugs are on an all-time high level yet no one is bothered about solving these problems from the roots. Ragging is schools and colleges and lack of proper educational facilities have also been given a serious thought in the book. The feelings and the troubles of the victims and their families are clearly and extensively discussed in the book. Various solutions have been suggested. The storyline was at times slow-paced and lost its taste but overall the experience was good. All the details regarding the crimes have been clearly stated with little to no errors. After-thoughts on the book :   The book is a must-read by all adults and teens who need to be educated about the social-evils in the correct way. According to a study, by 2030 the number of people addicted
