#CogentBooks – The Thirteenth Day by Aditya Iyengar

Mahabharata; a tale that has been retold a several times, and shall be recreated by authors for time immemorial. There are so many characters, themes, philosophies, and stories that come together to create the mega-epic that is the Mahabharata. Quite recently, I read and wrote about The Ajaya Series written by Anand Neelakantan. That author… Continue reading #CogentBooks – The Thirteenth Day by Aditya Iyengar

#CogentBooks – Deja Karma by Vish Dhamija

While I was reading Roll of the Dice and Rise of Kali, I came across this book called Deja Karma by Vish Dhamija. Sadly, I’ve been away from the world of books in the last few months of my life; and hence I didn’t know about Bhendi Bazaar and Nothing Lasts Forever, two bestsellers written… Continue reading #CogentBooks – Deja Karma by Vish Dhamija

#CogentBooks – Roll of the Dice by Anand Neelakantan

How often do you know the story of the book, before you pick it up? Well, even if you don’t know the entire story, you definitely know about existence of most of the important characters, their names, their personality traits, how are they connected to each other, the milieu, etc. That was my state when… Continue reading #CogentBooks – Roll of the Dice by Anand Neelakantan

Mistress of Honour by Bhaavna Arora

I’ve always wondered why does India not have its share of books/ movies based on wars. War movies is one of the most popular genre of movies in the west. Some brilliant masterpieces like Saving Private Ryan, Behind Enemy Lines, and many others are not just great entertainers, but also, great informative pieces of work.… Continue reading Mistress of Honour by Bhaavna Arora

The Mahabharata Quest: The Alexander Secret by Christopher C. Doyle

History, mythology, thriller, crime, suspense, action, and science. It’s difficult to manage so many subjects and genres, for an author. What makes it really difficult is to connect two or more of the above mentioned subjects, in one story. Now imagine, combining all the above mentioned genres in bits, and weaving a story. That’s what… Continue reading The Mahabharata Quest: The Alexander Secret by Christopher C. Doyle

Books – The Bankster by Ravi Subramanian

Banks, blood diamonds, murders, deceit, conspiracy, politics, investigations, and money. In short these eight words are the pillars to the story of the book titled The Bankster written by Ravi Subramanian. Greater Boston Global Bank (GB2) resembles one of the swanky banks that citizens of urban India choose to do business with. An institute with… Continue reading Books – The Bankster by Ravi Subramanian
