Its first of the trilogy (on Hindu Mythology of The Holy Trinity, next two being The Life of Shiva and The Birth of Brahma) by Manil Sury,
Quite new in approach....what I liked in particular was the way Manil Suri has developed each charactar, be that Asranis, Pathaks, Jalals.
Entire story is about charactars woven around Vishnu, servant who dies while sleeping in a Mumbai Building. The story does justice to all charcatars, thats the best part, reminded me of the "Sooraj ka saatwan ghoda" by Shyam Benegal.
Unbeliveably but its the first book of the author, Manil Suri, you can read the first chapter of the book on the website.
