About The Book

Something is rotten in the state of Amravati …

A mysterious ailment afflicts Indra, reducing the omnipotent King of the Gods to … well … quite the opposite. To add to his woes, Lord Vishnu threatens to fire him for dereliction of duty. But Indra’s troubles wilt in comparison to those of his Asura counterpart, Bali, ruler of Tripura. Even as Indra frets over his delicate medical condition, an attempt is made to assassinate Bali. The mythical nectar can save both men from certain doom. But to secure it, the gods and the asuras will have to cooperate and churn the Ocean of Milk together … will Indra and Bali play nicely with each other or will their ancient enmity get in the way?

Bali and the Ocean of Milk takes a fresh look at the eternal conflict between the gods and the asuras in a whacky political thriller, littered with bad jokes and corpses.
