    Details: The vengeance is the unhappy tale of prince vidudabha, the son of Maharaja pasenadi of ko SA LA and Maharani vasabhakhatiya of kapilavatthu. Things take a turn for the worse when a heavily guarded secret comes out in the open and flips the lives of the yuvraj and the Maharani upside down. The atrocities committed by pasenadi and the princess maternal grandfather mahanama changes vidudabha into a revengeful and bitter person, who indulges in a vengeful bloodbath never perhaps witnessed before in history. Alongside the woeful tale of vidudabha runs the Storyline of the sakyamuni Buddha preaching his Dhamma. The Buddha appears in every episode of the story, sharing his words of wisdom and showing the path of light through his sermons. The irony apparent in this gripping story is that at a time when the Buddha wanders spreading love and peace, he fails to make an impression on the spiteful mind of vidudabha. Subhashis Das has woven a remarkable story of love and hate, compassion and conspiracy in India’s ancient era that combines history, religion, and fiction in a fascinating read.
