From the Author:

For any writer, his first book holds special value since it is as much a labor of love and sweat as an exercise in discovering one's own latent potential. This book is my labor of love and sweat in more ways than one.

Vishwamitra isn't a religious book, nor a book on spirituality. It's neither completely fiction nor entirely based on reality. Yet, it holds an important message, for it is the life story of an ordinary human who rose above the confines of his physical and mental boundaries to fight fate and take charge of his own destiny. This is the narrative of a brave king of ancient India, who not only attained fame through his military conquests but, through his intense spiritual quest, also became one of the most well-known sages of all time. It is the story of a man who dared to challenge the gods.

From the Back Cover:

He was born a Kshatriya. He became a Brahmarishi. 
When Satyavati, wife of Rishi Ruchik, exchanges with her mother, Queen Ratna, the magic potion for bearing a child, they change not just their children's destiny, but also the history of mankind. 

Born of this mix up is Vishwamitra, the son of a Kshatriya, with the qualities of a Brahmin. The duality in his life soon begins to show as he strives to become a Brahmarishi--the ultimate, the most powerful of all Gurus. 

With the creation of the Gayatri Mantra he begins a tapasya that makes him second to none. He challenges the Gods and shakes the very foundation of the heavens. 

Vishwamitra is the powerful, riveting story of a brave but stubborn, haughty yet compassionate, visionary king of Aryavarta who not only acquires material wealth through military conquests but also becomes one of the most well-known sages of all times.
