The Mystery of Bila Land book review

The Mystery of Bila Land

Finally, “A Story yet to be titled” has been titled as “The Mystery of Bila Land”. Five years hence, I was able to complete this unique story and get it to the market. Before talking anything about my book, first let me talk about what prompted me to write? What is the main purpose of my writing?
Well, it was to get over “fear”. Yes, you read it right “fear”. Writing was something I thought was not my cup of tea and needed great skills. I wanted to anyhow get that feeling off me and conquer it. It gave me immense pleasure and happiness within when I wrote, that just made me a different person altogether in the last five years. This book of mine is inspired by a dream that I had at a very young age. As we all know, some dreams stay back in our minds for years together. This was one of those that has stayed back and motivated me to come up with this book.
Never in my dreams could I ever imagine that I will see a day when my dream would take a form of a book. For a person like me, writing a book was like trekking the mighty Himalayan belts bare foot. A creatively challenged guy like me with a pathetic vocabulary finishes a book, is this Joke? Nope, it’s a fact. God has been kind in giving me that strength in the form of perseverance and hard work to see this dream come off. Believe me, if I can do it, then anybody in this world can do anything.

Here is a quick summary about my book.

The Mystery of Bila Land is a fast paced journey of a man, Vibhas, who meets his destiny in the land of Bilas somewhere in the midst of the mighty Himalayan belts. Vibhas is a twenty eight year old consultant by profession and a mountain trekker by passion. One of the reasons for his passion towards mountains has been a dream that recurs every night and wakes him up in shock. Over the last fifteen years, every night, he has been seeing glimpses of a warrior, meditating on a place surrounded by snow-capped mountains, fighting a battle and chanting mantras within a cave.
What do these dreams signify for Vibhas? Why are these visuals hounding him for the past fifteen years? Who is this warrior? What is his dream trying to make him realize?
The key to these questions is found in the midst of a trek to the mighty Himalayas, when Vibhas splits up from his trekking group and enters the gorgeous land of the Bilas, a local tribe belonging to a forest in the Himalayan Mountains.
The shocking truth about his dreams is revealed in the Bila Land, which hosts all the places that he has been seeing in his dreams for the past fifteen years.

However, there is more than just the answers to his dreams to be found here. As truth after truth gets unveiled, Vibhas realizes that what Bila Land has to offer him is an experience that no human kind has had in a thousand years or more.

Now, available across major online retailers - Flipkart, Amazon, Bookadda and notionpress store (Publisher website)

A story yet to be titled


I listened to this particular tune when I was in seventh grade, since then it has been a great companion to me and has kept me up with my dreams. The use of flute especially is spectacular and can be easily compared to any of those magical compilations from Pandit Hari Prasad Chourasia. I call it as Raag Saagar (PS: This is purely fictional). I remember listening to Raag Saagar in a television commercial but do not remember what ad it was. I am sure not many who have seen the tv commercial would remember this particular tune. In fact Raag Saagar is so strongly embedded in my neurons that it recurs very often every day. Apart from being a superbly crafted tune, Raag Saagar generates visuals and flashes in my mind, again a fascinating fact that I am disclosing now after say 15 years. I don’t understand what these visuals stand for and what are they trying to convey. Whenever rag saagar rings in my mind, visuals of behemoth Himalayan ranges flashes and this has been happening consistently for the past 15 years. I am tired of thinking and searching answers for few questions that has been hounding me in the past decade

• Why do I have such strong bonding towards them? There are a lot of other
beautiful peaks across India but why only Himalayas?
• What is in Himalayas that always provokes my neurons and send messages to my brain which in turn thinks about himalayas and I get visuals flashing so often?
• Why have my feelings for these behemoth ranges remained so strong even though I have ignored them for the past 15 years?
• A beautiful green field surrounded by noble Himalayan ranges and a highway running on the edges, what does this signify as a dream?
• Why is my mind wandering here? All these are so far and away from my daily routine, then why do they keep flashing in my thoughts? It is believed that the mind thinks about those things that one encounters in his/her daily routine, then what is happening with my mind?
