Book Review : Shatru Kronikles Book - 1

Book Review : Shatru Kronikles Book - 1

Shatru Kronikles Book - 1 is written by Bommadevara Sai Chandravadhan ( Vadhan ) and is published by Frog Books of Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd. I have received this book as a part of Readers Cosmos Book Review Program. It is a fantasy fiction set in modern day Gurgaon, a city near New Delhi - India  where author also lives with his wife.



Cover : A big green monstrous eye looks nice on the cover, though it does not give the idea about the story but surely gives hints about the character of protagonist Shatru - the Asura Half Breed. That cover image with dark back ground takes the reader in that dark unknown world.

Plot : Shatru - the Hunter or an investigating agent of the unknown world found and killed a Rakshahs charged with murder of innocent Half Breeds. The Guardians who maintain balance between the Devas and the Asuras gave him another task of finding killer of Kaushalya who was working on their biggest project i.e the Unison of Light and the project Union. Shatru in his journey of finding the truth put his father, his dog , his assistant and even his own life in danger. The evil forces were spreading around on the earth to destroy the humankind and only Shatru can stop them by finding Kaushalya's killer and solving the mystery of the New Born. Will he able to do so or will he lose everything in this biggest battle? 

Thriller : The narration make you to believe this fantasy world to be true. The characterization , the fight sequences and the mythological citation are thoroughly explored and depicted in the story. The language is not very simple but easily understandable. The pace of narrative in maintaining the mystery and suspense makes it engrossing and an amazing read. It sometimes reminded me of secret world of Men In Black

Spoiler : There is not much as a spoiler in this book as far as thriller genre is concerned. But yes the mythological detail makes it complicated at points but when you understands these references it also becomes easier to understand. Some strong dialogues would have made it better.

Verdict : A must read for thriller and fantasy lovers. You should also read to have the taste of our mythology. 

Rating : I would give it 4/5.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow


Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
