Pradyumna: Son of Krishna

Pradyumna: Son of Krishna

I see a dark future that makes me quake,’ Devarishi Narada said. ‘One of these newborns will ravage the world and erase the name of Krishna from the face of the earth.’

As the world trembles on the threshold of Kali Yuga—4,32,000 years of unprecedented evil—it waits for a saviour to rise.

Meanwhile, in the dark netherland of the asuras, the meek Vama shudders as he learns that he is actually Pradyumna, the son of Krishna. And that his journey has just begun.

From the asura kingdom to Dwaraka and then Kurukshetra, destiny forces him to battle monsters, angry gods and blazing weapons, and overpower his own weaknesses. Will he be able to rise to the challenge in time to save the world? Or is he the destroyer prophesied by Narada?

Pradyumna is the gripping saga of the rise of this mighty, swashbuckling hero whom all of humanity awaits.

The Origin of Species

The Origin of Species

The theory of natural selection constructed by Charles Darwin is comprised in his revolutionary work of scientific literature called the Origin of Species. This piece of work recounts his ideas on the process of evolution of living beings based on the process of natural selection and it laid down the foundation for evolutionary biology. Initially published for literary reasons, Charles Darwin's standing in the scientific circles drew attention to its contents. Inviting criticism from religious circles for its controversial conclusion, the Origin of Species was later accepted by the experts and several theories have been built upon it as addition to the field of evolutionary biology.

The contents of the book were severely backed by Darwinian evidence, which gave it its authenticity and is now considered a pioneering work in effect for the study of modern evolution theory. The survival of the fittest is a theory every person is familiar with, as it is often used as an expression in generic situations. Charles Darwin proposed a theory that contains his views on population size and the species in general. Some of the key features of this book are the building blocks of society. Some of these are as follows: each population size remains almost the same over time, species have to struggle in order to survive and individuals belonging to the same species differ significantly.

Darwin's theory of evolution is still considered to be the best account ever given pertaining to the living being as an evolved species. Despite several modifications and rebukes, the hold of his book has not diminished. The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin was published by Fingerprint Publishing in 2013. It is available in paperback.

Key Features:

  • The Origin of Species includes several examples and accounts that led to this Darwinian school of thought besides the theory itself.
