Dharti Se Sitaron Tak Pehli Yatra (Earth to Centauri): Proxima ka Rahasya (The First Journey) (Hindi) Paperback – 2018
The year is 2095. Voyager 1, launched in 1977 with its golden record, has been found by someone. They've sent a signal back to Earth.
With a newly constructed faster than light spaceship ‘Antariksh’, Captain Anara reaches the source of the signal, the nearest star to Earth - Proxima Centauri. Her crew includes novices such as Lt. Manisha, and seasoned professionals, including Commander Ryan. But before she can even meet with the aliens, Anara must clear obstacles on her own ship, including a recalcitrant Artificial Intelligence and inexplicable radiation, which threatens the safety of the mission.
The implications of what they find on planet Proxima B will resonate far beyond this first journey exposing Earth to dangers on an unimaginable scale. And then Captain Anara finds out that there was a secret buried aboard Voyager 1 by its creators.

Kudos to the author for this masterpiece. Looking forward to reading more of his books. I would earnestly recommend this book to anyone who loves fiction with science entrenched in it!
The highest point of the book that I adored was that the mission that was planned and executed by Indians. I loved to read about the Indian researches that are happening in the story. I loved that how the Indians are prepared for the future and are way more ahead in the field of space sciences than anyone else in the whole world. And as we are progressing in this field in real life too, the story didn’t stays a story, it feels realistic and you kinda feel that you are reading a true story. I love this thing when you want to read ahead because you believe in the events that are happening in those lines. You create a whole new world which is more real than anything in the world you live in.
I didn’t read the english version and I didn’t feel for a second that this translated version feels odd because the translation from english to Hindi is hard and not everybody can do it. When you translate form one language to other, you don’t just have to translate, you also fill it with the same feeling that is in the original. So you need to fit the words accordingly and I am glad to say that this translated version is very good.
Although the story ended in this book with a conclusion to the events of the story, I might tell you that there is another part of the book that is coming out soon this year I hope. I am very excited to read the second part of the series and eagerly waiting for it.
#PLOT: This book is a Sci-fi genre novel. The story is set in 2095 and revolves around how Captain Amara take a mission to the closest star to the Earth...as Indian astronomers received a SOS signal which made them curious! Thus, humans decided to go on a expedition in search of the alien life ...in the massive spaceship named 'Antariksha'. This spaceship travels in light year speed🌌 Soon they discover they are not alone with some hidden secrets and darkness ahead!
#NARRATION: Story hops between present and in future ...which somehow created a difficulty in catching up! But after few pages you will get used to it..and the story starts gripping and keeping us on the edge! The usage of intricate scientific details and depiction of surrounding is spell bounding. The ending was the most amazing part as you will crave for the next part of this book😋
#WRITING: The writing of this book is amazing as it is engaging as well as entertaining! He used simple language with a blend of technological terms! The author took this genre in India to another level..as I adore who explores different genre other than romance and do a splendid job😇
#CHARACTERS: Author used a very strong headed and determined female protagonist Captain Anara. She is a leader giving guidance to her whole crew ...as her crew trusts her and follow her😇🌌
#MY_VIEWS: This is one of the best Sci-fi novel I've read so far by an Indian author..so I congratulate him😇 This is one of those creative work..which you are proud to say that it is an Indian novel! The storyline kept me hooked with a engaging narrration❤
This story is well written, it delivers a tense plot with a plausible beginning, both I find needed in good Sci-Fi.
Story telling in the future can be hard, some exposition needs to be used to establish the context of the story or else it will fall from its own weight.
I felt the writer did a good job in "Earth to Centauri: The First Journey" balancing the story telling with the exposition.
A good read in my book.
