After centuries of majestic rule, the mighty empire of the Chandellas is at the verge of extinction; experiencing an unimaginable attack on the night of Amavasya. Only a valiant General who can sacrifice his life to the goddess, to get the ‘boon’ from the deity, can save the kingdom and its glory. Alha and Oudal; the sons of the General who was butchered in an unethical attack, are all set to take revenge and rewrite the history of the subcontinent!
The most recited epic after ‘Ramcharitmanasa’ in the North India, ‘Alha’ has survived a millennium, owing to recitals by the masses, through its cryptic poetic structure - just as the famous temples of Khajuraho, which survived under the veils of invisibility, only to be discovered by T.S. Burt in the 1830’s. Engrossing the bravery of the General duo; Alha-Oudal of the Chandella dynasty, it encompasses countless tales of royal kingdoms, betrayals and battle-fields.
Originally composed by Yagnik; the Court Poet of Parimarddev, the original composition of Alha was lost in being handed down by oral traditions. It presently exists in many renditions, which differ from each other, both in language and subject
‘The Ascent of Benafers’ is the first attempt of the ‘Alha’ series to recover and restructure the story, alongside retaining its flavor - that of a timeless, majestic, mythological masterpiece of India.
