- Tale of the Vanquished: The Story of Ravana and His People
- Written by: Anand Neelakantan
- Narrated by: Denzil Smith
- Length: 18 hrs and 17 mins
The story of the Ramayana had been told innumerable times. The enthralling story of Rama, the incarnation of God, who slew Ravana, the evil demon of darkness, is known to every Indian. And in the pages of history, as always, it is the version told by the victors that lives on. The voice of the vanquished remains lost in silence. But what if Ravana and his people had a different story to tell? The story of the Ravanayana had never been told. Asura is the epic tale of the vanquished Asura people, a story that has been cherished by the oppressed outcastes of India for 3,000 years.
Amazing Narration by Denzil Smith

A welcome dissent.
Asura is a well written book and a treasure to those interested in alter narrative of Ravana. The author should be appreciated for his writing a mythology with a rational and realistic approach.
