A compelling saga of friendship, revenge, avarice, politics and religion, the book traces the trials and tribulations of the progeny of two close friends-Chand Ram and Shujaat Khan. One is the scion of a wealthy and influential nawabi family; the other is the son of an impoverished farmer, whose wizardry with the hockey stick takes him away from his humble background and on to the road to fame and fortune. But the strong ties between the fathers have no meaning for their sons. Chand's son, Ram, runs away from his remote Himalayan village when he's just 11 years and comes to Delhi to seek his fame, fortune and destiny. At about the same time, Shujaat's son leaves their palace in Faridgarh after a major earthquake and relocates to Delhi. Extending across a period of more than seventy years and traversing through some of the most significant and turbulent events of India's historical past including the impact the independence movement and the emergency have on the life of the protagonists, this is a story of relationships - between fathers and sons, husbands and wives - that are torn apart by pride and long-standing resentments and supposed injustices. Above all, it is a story of friendships and bonds that stand the test of time and circumstance, crossing all social, cultural and religious barriers to prove that there's more to life than hate and enmity, power and money, business and politics, fear and violence.

The characters have been portrayed well to an extent but in the start the reader would find them a little bit unjustifying, insensitive and practical more then needed.
The cover of book nicely goes with the title which describes blood, revenge and hate; and is a nicely presented thriller.
The story is indeed powerful and strong which can gain a lot of attention because of its not so mundane and intriguing storyline.
The author manages to keep the readers hooked to the book with the help of interesting twists and turns, but towards the end the narration goes with a slower pace; and a perfect ending for such an intriguing plot.
Full marks for the narration and portrayal of feelings of the characters.
Minor editing issues are there but those can be neglected.
4.2/5 stars from my side.

Garg fans better get your hands on time before the sales run out!
The story would remind you of the Bollywood sagas of the 1970s. There are twists and turns at every stage and there is the cliched portrayal of the 'dirty' world of business and politics. Ofcourse, it is occasionally interspersed with romance and gossip! The book can serve as a useful reference for understanding business in a political context.
The language is simple and most suited for early readers in teenage and young adulthood. The attempts at complexity are too obvious and the detailing of thoughts and emotions leaves little to the reader's imagination.
