Just by reading one can guess how thoroughly these operations were planned.

One can disagree with Mossad's style of working, but they deserve respect for their dedication.

Well researched Book With Tremendous Insights

The book is a must read for those willing to know the cultural and behavioral aspects of people living in the Indian Ocean rim. The inter connectivity has survived hundreds of year and despite change of religious practices and political control, basic activities have remain unchanged.

The books show cases the reason Indians are trusted in neighboring countries. The cultural bonding and common beliefs are good for future progress. As the 21st century is termed as the Century of Asia, the co-operation mentioned in the book is being revived and will continue to do so.

The author has done a commendable research to write this book. Mentioning of climate change which was probable a reason of downfall of civilizations is noteworthy.

I wish the book has a second part to include some points such as the interest of Russian Czars in Indian Ocean, reasons of Islamization of Maldives, western parts of India,and south-east Asian countries in earlier centuries, piracy in Horn of Africa, and role of super powers in currently changing geopolitics.

Nice story with abrupt end...

The author has done good research to write this book. From Mahabharat to Samrat Ashok to modern day challenges, every point is covered properly.

However, some points as stated below should have been included:
1. IB and other agencies are clue-less about activities of famous scientists and presence of terrorists around NCR.
2. How terrorists avoid attention of police despite moving in a fleet of SUVs and roam in different states?
3. In last chapter, the story ends abruptly. What happens to terrorists? Is their leader captured? What happens to Dr. Shukla and Radha? Why does not Vijay include his friends to the group of 9? What happens to Prof Greg and Terence?
4. How does Radha, despite being a nuclear physicist, get such a long time to spend with this group?

I hope there is no second part of this book to find answers of above questions.

Good book but over-influenced by today's events

The author has done research, no doubt about that. Presenting historical events with fictional mindset is done nicely. But, was the society so badly divided during those days as it is shown?

Some points I noted:
The captain whose ship Karna had boarded spoke Greek?
The Arabian horse

Did these lands have above name during time of Mahabharata?

The blind dog "Dharma" seems to have survived for than 50 years - as a student Arjun had blinded it and later the dog accompanied Arjun and his family during their Mahaprayan.

As the book is written from Duryodhan's point of view, Author has done justice with his job.

Overall, a Good read but over-influenced by today's events.



A book which could be lot better.

Good imagination but sometimes it is just too wild. Improve selection of words and pronunciation.
