Raju is home alone when a girl on the television directly addresses him and calls him by name. He decides to play along and asks for her name. She says her name is Mangalika, and she helps him with his homework. Raju tells his family about the mysterious girl, but they do not believe him. Mangalika reappears a couple of times and seems curious about technology. When Raju's father hears about her reappearance and interests, he presumes she is a hacker who wants to steal top-secret information from his laptop. But Mangalika is not what she seems. She is from a planet far away called Sulok. What is her mission and why are her people inquiring about Earth? Find the answers to these questions by reading The Native Aliens, a novelette by Ravi Ranjan Goswami.
The master of Indian storytelling is back. Ravi Ranjan Goswami combines Hindu culture and extraterrestrial life in one story. He took me on an adventure into space and history. The Native Aliens, just like all the other Ravi Ranjan Goswami stories, have lessons you can apply to your daily life. These include friendship, greed, and togetherness. I loved how the author explored the planet's history and its connection to Earth and the Indian people. I found this part of the story both creative and intriguing. I enjoyed the tale of Rishi Vashisht and King Vishvamitra and how it connected to the plot. The two main characters, Raju and Mangalika, are likable and have great personalities. We all have an origin story that reminds us of who we are and where we came from. Learn about the people of planet Sulok and their history by reading this book.
