About The Book
'Krishna Gopeshvara' is first part of a trilogy on Lord Krishna. It covers the life events ofLord Krishna from roughly Kansa's capture of the Mathura throne, to Kansa's killing byKrishna. It is written in the genre of historical fiction. Krishna and Kansa are notpresented as some extra-terrestrial beings,but as human beings pursuing theirnarratives according to their understanding of the world around them. The script ispresentedas a clash of two narratives - one the dharmic narrative symbolized by Krishna, and theother being a totalitarian narrative symbolized by Kansa. Radha comes in as aninspiration to the young Krishna?
The story is presented as a rational explanation of events around Krishna's early life.Things that look impossible to an ordinary person have been reconfigured as plausibleevents. The only assumption that has been made is that Krishna was a highly giftedyoung man.
