Publisher's Summary

A seemingly random selection of heads of state are struck down like flies by unnamed killers who work with the clinical efficiency of butchers. Except that they leave no trace of their methods. 

Welcome back to the shadowy and addictive world of Ashwin Sanghi. After The Rozabal Line, Chanakya’s Chant, The Krishna Key and The Sialkot Saga, Ashwin Sanghi returns at last with another quietly fearsome tale - this time of men who guard the ‘Kalachakra’, or The Wheel of Time. Sanghi describes a world of people at war with one another - a boomeranging conflict of faiths that results in acts of such slow and planned human cruelty that they defy human imagination. 

Caught in the midst of this madness is Vijay Sundaram, a geek scientist who is only dimly aware that the wider sky outside his laboratory is stretched taut and close to being torn apart by forces that he wants simply to have nothing to do with. But events conspire to propel Vijay into the labyrinth of Milesian Labs, a centre of research deep in the forested hills of Uttarakhand. What he stumbles upon is a primordial clue to a galactic secret that could accelerate the downward spiral of humankind. Trapped and wholly unaware of his actual foe, Vijay races against time to save humanity - and himself.  

Zigzagging from Rama’s crossing to Lanka to the birth of Buddhism; from the origin of Wahhabism to the Einsteinian gravitational wave-detectors of LIGO; from the charnel-grounds of naked tantric practitioners to the bespoke suits of the Oval Office; and from the rites of Minerva, shrouded in frankincense, to the smoke-darkened ruins of Nalanda, Keepers of the Kalachakra is a journey that will have you gasping for breath - but one that you cannot abandon till all the pieces of the jigsaw come together.  

Till you come up gobsmack against an end that you simply did not see coming.

Outstanding

The book is very informative about all the knowledge stored in the various religious scriptures and is very beautifully narrated as well. Definitely a 'Can't put down' book.

Engaging

This one is though a little stretched at places, but links very well with the Budhhist History and current times...Never predicatable.

Too many concepts, too little story

Too much Entanglement 😊

The story on its own had substantial meat on the subject of KalChakra and the mystics around it. But weaving in too many elements of current affairs and too many deviations into plots, sub plots and inter plots pretty much made the core matter of KalChakra become very small part of the story.

The title says Keepers of the KalChakra but actually doesn't talk about them at all.

I'm forced to listen to this novel time and agian

As usual the perfect stitching of facts, science and fiction. however, I liked the other novels of Ashwin. for me the best of all is and will remain is Chanakyas chant. expecting another masaladhar novel Mr. Shanghai.
NOT to forget. the pronunciation of Sanskrit words and hymns by Shernaz is impeccable. thank you for Narrating and giving the entertainment for Ashwin's Novel
looking forward for more such narrations from you dear. GOD bless you and all. Sarve Janā Sukhino Bhavantu
