About the Book:
When an ancient artifact is stolen from National Museum, Delhi, a reckless and stubborn Police officer, ACP Aryan, is placed at the helm of the case. The people on the hunt for the artifact are seemingly ordinary criminals- an antique robber, an Irish national, and a sand mafia. But as Aryan uncovers each layer of the truth, he discovers that his adversaries are the descendants of mythical Asuras.
From the gateway to Lord Vishnu - Haridwar - to God's own country- Kerala- from fiery pursuits to narrow escapes, the mystery of the artifact draws Aryan into a lethal maze of vengeance, betrayal, and dreadful secrets.
With time slipping out of the hands like sand, Aryan must unravel the mystery of the artifact, for this case is not just a game of Good vs Evil; it is a deadly game of Good vs Ancient Evil.
The Resurrection of Evil is an irresistible page-turner; a modern day mythological thriller with exhilarating twists and turns and fascinating stories from Indian, Irish, and Mayan mythology.

The story begins with a man killing his wife in a moment of anger, followed by crime scenes which will be handled by the protagonist ACP Aryan, who is brave, sarcastic, clever and dedicated. The action moves all over India, while the players puzzle out the mythology related to today's happenings with the plot getting more and more complex, moving back and forth with cliff-hangers at every turn, and a brilliant ending. Indian mythology plays a huge role with some Irish mythology thrown in.
Some background explanation would make this more understandable for international readers and those who are not familiar with the mythology.
BUT Neelabh Pratap Singh's language is better in his FB posts than in this book which is loaded with errors. So why are there so many errors? God knows.
A few sentences FROM A SINGLE PARAGRAPH will serve as an example of the level of language: …who is respected as the name of scarifies but very less people know about him. He was the son of Brahma's Manas putra, Maharashi Brigu and his wife Dhitti. …his wife name was Swarcha. …he had kept himself all alone in a jungle. …Lord Shiva had first time appeared… I also see unwanted apostrophes, e.g. Chalukya's instead of Chalukyas.
The cover is quite simple but the title is powerful in accordance with the powerful writing of the author. It encompasses the crux of the book i.e. the revival of the evil. Towards the end of the novel, we realize what does the author wants to imply with the use of such a rustic title. The book does not contain any cheesy lines or interesting love angle yet the flow of it is enticing.
The language is quite good and the storytelling of the author is worth appreciation. His dedicated efforts and research are clearly visible throughout the narrative. More power to his pen!
One who loves to read about the history and mystery should definitely go for this book!

Solitude is what I seek, the state I desire to be in;
Solitude – my dearest friend, my most dreaded foe.
Solitude Revisited is a confession, a realization and the musings of a pensive young heart.
There are a million stories around us, but few are told. This book is about those invisible souls you encounter every day, but never care to observe. Sometimes, the eyes need to look further than just what they can fathom, the heart needs to seek an anecdote and the mind needs to frame a memoir for the soul — to survive the vastness reality throws at it. That’s where fiction steps in, presenting an alternative universe for the mind to thrive in, so it may preserve its individuality and brood over its reflections. Thoughts demand to be contemplated and preserved just like history, for they tell infinite stories no sane mind can perceive.
Solitude Revisited is all but real; it’s a confidante and a confession, an artist and his muse, a whisper and a madman. Listen to it and you may find yourself, listen to yourself and you may find it.
‘Solitude Revisited’ by Manaswita Ghosh is an intriguing book that flinches your heart with its each word – bit by bit. It is a collection of beautiful stories that speak with the medley of words. I am amazed at their creation and presentation.
Zora mirrored the ambitious lives that chase their professions without giving a glance to their loved ones. In the lure of their dreams, they keep running. At the end, all that comes to them is bountiful loneliness that pierces their existence.
Arundhati’s realization makes you face the truth that ‘Some spaces are not meant to be void.’ People leave behind a hole in your life when they go away but you are not to hang in there. You ought to go ahead, move forward and accept the change that is an inevitable truth.
The heartwarming tale of schizophrenic Veronica takes you by surprise. It tears your soul apart when Veronica slits her wrist because she could never get her love.
The poignant account of young Zunaid who toils hard to earn money for his poor family moves you. His mind is teeming with dreams but his heart is filled with sadness up to the brim. His dreams let him escape the harsh reality in which he was plunged mercilessly.
The stories of Akanksha and Afreen depict the love that binds our spirits magically. But then there are times when we ought to go ahead, move forward because life is meant to keep going.
All the individual plots are wonderfully improvised by the author to tickle your heart and let you drown in the whirlpool of emotions. The cover of the book is symbolic of a young lass who is free in her reveries. It is in her realms of imagination where she indulges with her words and plays along. The blurb is enticing. It instantly draws the attention of the readers and coerces them to sit glued to the book as the narrative flows smoothly. The title is appropriate as it precisely describes the comprehensive content of the book. It implies that the author derived pleasure out of her own solitude and her stroll down the lanes of solitude brought this book alive. The words, the expressions, the coherence, the narration – everything is fantastic. This book will definitely touch the hearts. If one dwells deep into it, he is bound to attain bliss.
Kudos to the author for penning down this marvelous book. Each musing appealed to me and I will recommend it to everyone who would love to revisit their own solitude.
Life is too short for old fingers to count regrets.

It was a great surprise for Nilesh when Dr. Sudarshan Rao chose him for surveying the long abandoned archaeological site in Mathura. He and his colleague, Sushmita Banerjee in Indian Archeological Council, arrive in the city where they found that the place had hidden a dark secret which would change their lives forever. Manoj Krishnan’s debut novel is about the timeless journey that unravels the greatest mystery entwined in the game of love, lust, hatred, and revenge like never before.
Will Nilesh and Sushmita be able to unravel the mystery behind the gloomy secret of Mathura? Where will their destiny land them?
‘Kanishka’ by Manoj Krishnan is an intriguing and engaging tale that keeps you at the edge of your seats. It has a riveting plotline, which gives a tough competition to other contemporary novels that only focuses on romance. In the backdrop of the story that revolves around the lives of Nilesh, Sushmita and Dr. Rao who work at Archaeological Council, runs a story that portrays the lust for power.
The lackluster cover is complimented by an exquisite title Kanishka who is one of the prime characters in the book. He is symbolic of power. Moreover, the plot is all about the fight to attain supremacy. The novel set in the medieval times speaks about the plight of the women who are seen as mere objects to satiate the amorous desires of the men.
The life of a woman is really tough. Her flesh is all that a hungry man seeks. This hunger of the men drives him into depriving a woman of her own rights and desires. Such is the dismal condition in which women have been surviving since ages.
The madness to grab the position can drive the person to an extent of forgetting even the basic tenets of humanity and morality. This has been beautifully illustrated.
In his first novel itself, the author has done tremendously well. The plot is fresh and unique. The storytelling of the author keeps you glued to the book. I was totally engrossed in the narrative as the characterization of each person is done efficiently. Not for a moment, one will feel bored. The description of the abysmal condition of a woman is relevant to the present scenario and captivates the reader. The coherence of the book has been maintained deliberately to give a smooth flow of the narration. The language, the expressions – everything has been meticulously put to bring alive an imaginary story that seeps through your heart and awakens your spirit. Such is the power and magic of this book. Kudos to the author for penning down an amazing book with utmost flair and dedication. His sheer creativity is reflected throughout the narrative. More power to his pen!
If you wish to go for something that is worth your time and is unique, then surely go for this book!

In Search of Happiness…
‘In Search of Happiness’ by Sushil Rana and Shivangi Rawat is a poignant account of different lives whose stories rest in this book. The stories are really heartwarming.
In the scandalous world of social media, the brewing relation of Aarohi and Aakash explicates that it is not necessary for each love to have an ending. Some things are beautifully incomplete. The stories of Sunil, Madhav were equally touching. The inspirational transformation of the bartender took me by surprise. The attempt of both the writers is good, it is their first novel.
The plotline was good only if it could have been developed maturely would have imparted it more beauty. There were certain grammatical glitches which need to be rectified in the future editions of the book. Editing could have been better. The presentation matters a lot and a nice stuff loses its sheen if not worked upon meticulously. I hope the authors do not get disheartened. I just gave my honest opinion.
Moreover, the best part of the book that made the experience of reading it enjoyable was the poems that are beautifully weaved. They are exquisite and I absolutely loved them.
Best wishes for your future work!

Just For You…
When you love someone, what’s there to prove? Everything! It looks like life is teaching Rohit a lesson. His publishing deals, his relationships, even his job- nothing seems to be working out. To make matters worse, Karun is still trying his best to ruin his writing career. But when Nisha leaves him, it’s the ultimate blow. To win her back Rohit must prove he loves her enough to do things that matter to her; like helping Tara getting published. But will his efforts reap fruits? Will Nisha come back?
‘Just For You’ by Rahul Saini attacks the corruption prevalent in the Indian literature industry. The new era of authors is witnessing an upsurge of new talent. There are a number of books available in the market which claim to be good but rather turn out to crap. All the writers end up penning down love stories that have oodles of sexually explicit content and futile plotline.
The tone of the author remains pungent throughout the book. He makes use of offensive words to emphasize the dirty politics in which the authors get themselves indulged in order to mint money and gain fame. The basic tenets of morality are sacrificed for the sake of awards.
Though the central theme of the book revolves around love and its protagonist Rohit, the author carefully weaved sub plots and gave ample space to the side characters. The book not only tells us about the craving for love but it also guides us in the direction of seeing the reality behind the success of authors. They can go to any extent just to fulfill their desires.
The title is plain but the cover is attractive. It is captivating enough to grab the attention of the readers. Moreover, the language is quite simple for the newbies to read it.
I’ll recommend the book to everyone out there to catch the dark reality.

If you never try, you will never know…
If you want to reach somewhere, you need to come out of somewhere… This book aptly elucidates this point.
Robin, who gets inspired by his mother to become a musician, is forced by his father to pursue the education needed to join their family business. This compels him to leave home at the age of eighteen to follow his dreams. In few months of independent living, his over ambitious dreams turn into an obsession, which gets even more intense when he falls into a drug addiction and mysteriously unleashes a new side to his life.
In the course of his journey, Robin bumps into Aisha whose exquisite beauty and unparalleled love brings him out of his misery and fantasies. But will their love be able to overcome the complexities and Robin’s urge to follow the mysterious voice?
During the tumultuous times, Robin’s flat mate Jordan motivates him to pursue his dreams. He asks him to believe his instincts but soon drifts apart from him. What is the truth behind Jordan’s existence?
As the time progresses, Robin finds the purpose of his life. Through his musical voyage, he attains spirituality and the satisfaction he has been chasing for years.
Read this thrilling story to explore the life of Robin who lives amidst dreams, perplexion, fantasies, passion, and love.
‘If You Never Try, You Will Never Know’ by Sahil Mehta is a beautiful and thrilling story of Robin, its protagonist. It is the debut novel of the author and he has penned it down really well. The storyline is well knit and meticulously drafted to produce this heart-warming story. The narration is very good and the coherence of the plot is well maintained.
The character of Robin is designed with utmost clarity and profoundness. I loved the part where he describes the Vihan city and those tiny dwarfs. The description itself is so magical that one will be bound to fall in love with that imaginary city. The story inspires one to follow their heart no matter what because the real essence of living is in pursuing your desires and dreams. The life might pelt stones at you and the choices might get tougher but if you wish to reach somewhere, listen to your heart. The power of your inner voice is invincible and it will ultimately direct you towards the goal of your life.
During the middle of the story, the plot gets a little annoying due to the excessive portrayal of spicy love making of Aisha and Robin. I guess it was not required to stretch the narrative.
But towards the end of the book, the turn of the events in Robin’s life are exhilarating. That is the point when realization dawns upon him and slowly positivity embraces him. As he defeats the demons in his minds, he moves towards his destiny. The destiny that gifts him his ambition and peace of mind. Love being the ultimate force plays an instrumental role in Robin’s transformation and success.
The title is simple and in sync with the storyline. Until you take a step forward and try your hands out in new things, you will never know what is your potential. The cover of the book is quite captivating that depicts the inclination of the boy towards music clearly.
Kudos to the author for putting up such an intriguing story that motivates its readers to never lose the hope and strive forward relentlessly.
Read this wonderful tale of love and ambition!

Who Shall I Be Today?
Poetry is the art of expressing oneself in a musical manner. The words dance to the tunes of the writer’s heart and the verse that is panned out of the amalgamation of beautiful words and emotions reflects the beauty of the writer’s heart.
‘Who Shall I Be Today?’ by Sunita Saldhana is a collection of poems that are written from the heart. The poems delve into what makes up a woman. It is a celebration of womanhood and is guaranteed to touch the soul of every woman who reads it.
The author has done a great job at compiling her beautiful poems into a book to present them to voracious readers. The poems are well-written and composed deliberately. The flow of words is amazing and is bound to touch the heart of any reader. The theme around which these poems revolve is the life of a woman. Each poem, meticulously penned down, touches the nuances of the life of a woman in an impressive manner. The coherence of the verses is praiseworthy.
The cover of the book is austere but the title contains great relativity and depth. The title itself coaxes one to think and cogitate upon one’s existence. As you read the poems, your answers find you.
I absolutely loved this short and precise book. I would recommend it to everyone. This is simply amazing and wonderful!
