About the Author
Rashmi is a legal professional in her early thirties. She is a commerce graduate, a law graduate and a qualified company secretary. She currently heads the legal and secretarial department of an IT company in Mumbai. Rashmi has been an avid reader of ancient Indian history. She strongly feels that history textbooks are dry and limited versions of exciting stories, which should be excavated and brought to young readers. Her fascination with an amazing event of ancient Indian history which took place in 600 BCE and its intriguing connection with the Mahabharat war, led her to write her debut novel The Rigveda Code . Rashmi stays in Mumbai with her husband, Lalit, her three year old son, Sohum, and her in-laws, Maya and Mohan.

The plot of the story is 600 BC, 300 years after the Mahabharata War... The story revolves around the protagonist Rikshavi, princess of Vrij, a brave warrior,a person destined to rule without any position of power!... Rikshavi being the kshatriya girl, learns archery and Sanksrit from her mother Bhairavi as she was not allowed to take up education on archery being a girl...so her mother herself took the responsibility to educate her.... The story begins with Kauravas and Pandavas standing at the brink of the epochal Great War of Kurukshetra, which the world would come to know as the great “Mahabharata War”...Even after300 years of this, India is still haunted by the shadows of the devastating war... Lord Krishna wishes for a new governing system for future Bharathkanda and instead of establishing a new governing system by himself, Lord Krishna passes the secret code to Rikshavi, through pandava's legacy where she is destined to do this... The book is about how is she gonna change the Indian legacy and bring a new governing system...And the story is something very interesting which can be easily related with our present society in many instances like Gender discrimination where a girl is not supposed to take archery education, and where common people gets disconnected with royal king and their ruling...It actually shows the pathetic situation of our existing political system where political leaders are less concerned about common people and their interests...The tale also includes a lots of twists and turns where readers get more thrilled while princess realizes that she has no authority over the kingdom and prince Amogh coronates and this becomes really strange for the readers to accept, but author has given a well description to it so as the readers get convinced...The story gives a message to its readers that the entire world is a maaya, an illusion...!! What you see may not be the truth, it can be just an illusion...Whereas sometimes Truth becomes stranger than fiction...
*Fast pace and Easy Read
*heart warming story
*Eventhough the story is based on Hindu methodology, all sort of readers are able to understand the story...
Author could have included some more twists and turns.
1. Avoid overuse of words. Words "stunned" and "astounded" are reused way too many times. Especially "Stunned". The characters cannot be stunned so many times! :-) (and sometimes for minor reasons)
2. Work on English Vocab: You dont need to use large difficult words. But the language used lacks diversity of English words. (Few grammatical mistakes too)
3. Climax: was almost non existent. One expects there would be some amount of pushback to get democracy into picture. Some amount of hard work to put things in place: description of these - even couple pages - would have increased the value of the storyline.
4. One glaring mistake was describing things twice. Example: The narration talks about a crescent shaped lake & its description. Then someone tells the princess all over again "the lake is crescent shaped" & describes the same things. The reader got it the first time.
Again: overall I did enjoy the book and glad I bought it. Please do continue writing.
