Book Title: Kalyug ki Poorva Sandhya
Author: Vineet Agarwal
‘Kalyug Ki Poorv Sandhya’ is a bilingual poem containing 153 verses in Hindi and English. The English verses are translation of the Hindi verses by the author himself.

The sequence of events have been described in a delightful, poetic-rhythm from an impartial perspective.

The various tales of the epic which are referred to in this composition have been explained in the beginning of the Book for the ease of reader. The language is reminiscent of the past. In all a treat for the mythological freaks.
