Ashwin Sanghi is the latest writer to make it quite quickly to the bestseller list in the recent times. It was in the year 2008 that his first book, The Rozabal Line was published under the anagram Shawn Haigins followed by Chanakya’s Chant in December 2010 and The Krishna Key in August 2012. A brief overview of all his 3 books is as follows
The Rozabal Line: The debut novel in which Ashwin Sanghi has interspersed religious facts with fiction to deliver a gripping thriller. Hard to leave the book half way, you will find its characters following different religions while they have been receiving puzzling signals and riddles which make them delve further into its basic tenets of each of their religions – Christainity, Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism. Well received and reviewed across India, The Rozabal Line purports that all religions have similar tenets and principles. Written under the pseudonym, this one is indeed a must read.
The Krishna Key: Yet another mythological thriller which revolves around Lord Krishna who had promised to return as the next savior when his devotees need him the most. The main protagonist in the book The Krishna Key is a poor little rich boy who firmly believes that he is the final avatar and a serial killer. As a historian follows him through a chilling journey across the most popular temples and pilgrim centers of India to unravel this mystery, you are put to a very different perspective/approach towards the Vedic age. Ashwin Sanghi has conceded he was inspired by Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code as he was simultaneously thinking of writing a novel based on Mahabharata but not in the usual perspective as done by most authors.
Chanakya’s Chant: Chanakya one of the most stupendous thinker and strategists of India and his beliefs has resurfaced once again through Ashwin Sanghi’s novel, Chanakya’s Chant. Known to have united India to fight a tough battle against Alexander, the great in the 3rd century B.C, Chanakya skillfully maneuvered Chandragupta Maurya as the rule of India, similarly Gangasagar Mishra, the protagonist of the story, skillfully works his way through the evils of the present society to unite India once again. Despite being born in a Brahmin family, Gangasagar Mishra, a teacher deals with powerful politicians, greed and money power with adept and diplomacy. Time has flowed, settings have changed but what remains a fact that for power and fame, one has to compromise on one’s emotions and conscience.
