Product description

Review

“The author has picked an unusual premise for this complex thriller. The characters are as unique as the setting. What a terrific debut!” - Shobhaa De, Bestselling Novelist and Columnist

"With the amazing ease of a seasoned storyteller, Braham Singh takes the reader to a world that is alive with history and throbbing with details. Bombay Swastika is a compelling first novel and an exciting thriller." - Anees Salim, Award-winning Author

"Braham Singh's narrative keeps you going till the end. From Nazi camps to Mumbai's deepest secrets, and to Homi Bhabha's nuclear program, Bombay Swastika keeps you gripped. Eagerly looking forward to seeing this story on a movie screen." - Dr. Radhakrishnan Pillai, Award-winning Author

"What an amazing literary mash-up: taking the cauldron that is India, with its communal and industrial turmoil, and adding in tortured fragments of the Holocaust and the impact of exile and displacement from Europe. The result is a tumultuous and haunting tour de force and a stunning debut novel." - Monroe E. Price, Professor of Law, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, New York City

BOMBAY SWASTIKA, by Braham Singh…..a Review…..

A Sensational thriller wherein the author cleverly juxtaposes settings that oscillate between Germany of 1934 and the Bombay of the 1960s. The swathe of the landscape is so much at variance that it is the author’s ingenuity that makes for a seamless read! One drifts effortlessly into Germany and back with the main character.

The dramatis personae is varied; indeed the huge cast of characters is superbly delineated with their pet foibles and idiosyncrasies that makes them totally credible. The underlying commentary on the corruption that manifests in Government issues; the big importance of how everyone has a price and one pays in cash or kind is conveyed very simply with no moralistic overtones.

The 'Pucca sahibs’ and club culture floats in on cue as it were as a perfect setting for the Firangis left behind in India and the WOGS (Western oriented gentlemen -- -brown Sahibs). The abject melancholia of the slums provides a perfect foil. The singular exposure to the Hijra cults & Tantric philosophy make for fascinating hitherto unknown elements of Hinduism. India on the threshold of becoming a Nuclear power is very succinctly conveyed along with its idolatry beliefs and naïve acceptance of largesse from the larger world powers.

Language is simple with apt metaphors sprinkled all through is evocative of a person exposed to the delights of the written word! The descriptive passages are largely illuminative and convey the imagery effectively. The penchant for using profanity is rather distracting .as was the unnecessary and rather repetitive emphasis on body functions!

A great way to enter the field of wonderful and absorbing fiction through this bomb of a First book!

Wishing the author even greater success in future novels! - Gayathri Krishna
