very very beautifully narrated story of people of all classes living in a tea estate in Sri Lanka and how all their lives are intertwined. A must read for all those who want to peek into the immensely beautiful tea estates and people working in them. #Recommended

Nothing special!!

Sounded more like a comic book story than s thriller plot. Quite superficial narration and artificial unconnected music...

First class story telling

This book perfectly tells you how innocent people are changed into blood thirsty mobs, just by senseless talks of religious unity. That blind hysteria to kill others, just on the basis of ' felt' vengeance and not seen.

Must read to get a glimpse of how humans think as religious groups..

Engaging and brilliant!!

Very well drafted and narrated, this books is basically about the sorry state of affairs of women in Ayodhya, even when Ramrajya arrives (Ram becomes the ruler). Meenakshi (Sooprnrkha) is walking destitute after her brother is murdered, Sita is discarded from palace for being impure, a lower case lady is kicked in the streets by her own hustband - when these three meet for sometime in Ayodhya, they introspect and strike a small conversation. This book is about that insightful conversation, and how all three accept their destiny amidst patriarchial justifications....

Recommened, one should read to get a perspective!!

The book proposed a theory where smartphone users must try to un-glue the gadgets from their hands in order to restore mental stability and attention. The author takes help of multiple studies from present and past to prove his point and some if not all are agreeable propositions. A book is a good one time read...

Enlightening...…😊👍

The book is about Suyodhan's version of Mahabharat, as believe me it is eye opening. we were given only one side of the story since our childhood and it was enlightening to empathize with the other side. Though the book is voluminous, the author is able to carve out incidents and characters nicely.

A must read, this is the the first of the two parts...!!

Nothing about Chanakya or Arthshastra - Waste!!

This book is a classic example why modern Indian literature has no takers. There is nothing about this book that I can appreciate...

Story: It is actually more like a diary of self obeeseed author who thinks he is doing something above the worldly acts to study Arthshastra. in fact, there is no Chankaya or Arthshasthra in the body of the text, its just class 8 writing of author who essays his life events in a most boring manner.

Narration: Pathetic!! As if an essay is being dictated in class! No pitch, no tempo, no emotion, no captivity!!

Recommendation: Big No No! Absolute waste of time.

absolutely unparalleled style or story telling our Khushwant Singh, the book keeps you glued till the end. or depicts perfectly the mentality of people in different frames of life and digs through their thought process. it also peeps into how administration works and how civilians are at mercy of governments will.

the end leaves some questions unansweres though, for the imagination of the reader...

absolutely must read for people in marriage.
