1.) The Rozabal Line The Rozabal Line is the debut novel of Ashwin Sanghi.The author has taken up the creative liberty of using various religious facts in order to whip up an epic fictional thriller.

He mentions that the lost tribes of Israel may have settled in Kashmir. The author also introduces St. Thomas as one of Jesuss closest friends and Mary Magdalene as a woman from the ancient Mauryan Empire headed by Ashoka. The book further features terrorist attacks that share some parallels with the 2008 Mumbai attacks.Sanghis hypothesis goes on to establish that Jesuss descendants are todays Kashmiri Islamists. The author draws some similar lines between the fate of a group of terrorists and that of Jesus and his 12 apostles. The book traces the roots of various religions and states that all their origins are closely knit.The Rozabal Line was first published in 2007 under Sanghi's pseudonym Shawn Haigins in the United States. The revised edition was later published in India under Sanghis own name in 2008 before Westland published it in 2010. 2.)
