About the Book

"Aabhas's story is a bold tale of a student brought up on communist dogma, but through an awakening, determination and research grew to question that indoctrination. A must read for today's Indian youth." Vivek Agnihotri, Filmmaker and Best Selling Author of 'Urban Naxals.'

If you are not a communist at twenty, you haven't got a heart.

If you are still a communist at thirty, you haven't got a brain.

Aabhas, a self-professed Marxist voted against BJP and Narendra Modi in 2014. This is the story of his journey of transformation from a Modi hater to a Modi supporter.

In his own words—"I had both heart at twenty and now have brain while I kiss thirty. This is a true story of journey from being a 'Marxist' to an alleged 'Modi Bhakt.' I once saw Arvind Kejriwal as the saviour of the realm and Modi as a mass-mur- derer."

A study tour to Ajanta Caves began to shape a new Aabhas. He questioned the indoctrination into Communist ideology he got in college. "India leaped to become the third-fastest growing ecohomy and its respect in the world reflects on the leadership of Modi. This is a New India, making alliances and friends, and willing to hit its enemies hard."

"... A story of New India and its youth questioning the stale dogmas of Nehruvian socialism and fake "secularism" which has kept India poor and divided."

Sankrant Sanu, CEO and Author of ‘The English Medium Myth.’

Prologue

The words of the guide at Ajanta had left a strong impression in my mind. The Universe was conspiring big, which I was certainly unaware of. The bus had left Ajanta and cruised closer to Nagpur but my mind was still at Ajanta. Were the monks really so wise and scientific to use Snell’s Laws of reflection? The bus halted at one of the dhabas. Everyone got off the bus as fast as they could. While hunger drove everyone, I was still lost in the trance of meticulous Ajanta.

‘Aabhas,’ my colleague Manoj Bhanuse put his hand on my shoulder and said, ‘aren't you coming for lunch?’ ‘Yes, yes. I’m coming,’ I said and walked out of the bus with him. My mind went back.

‘Sir, you see these depressions right?" the guide had said. "Monks used to store water in them. When the sun was high, sunrays used to reflect through the stored water and generate enough light for the Monks to do painting inside the caves. They. came up with this idea because had they used fire as source of light, carbon accumulation would have spoiled all the painting done by organic colour media.’

It was an astonishing revelation for the communist inside me. Scientific wisdom within an ascetic monk, that too of one and a half millennium ago was a shocker to me. My heart failed to accept that people were using a certain scientific principle a millennium before its supposed time of discovery. There were plenty of other astonishing explanations about the caves. Peace was miles away as the rational mind wanted only to enquire, experiment and infer.

Having returned to Nagpur, my days started being spent to study and research the mysteries of the Ajanta and Ellora Caves. The new exciting journey had just begun. It was to bring the larger change that Universe was transpiring to bring.
