Kashi by Vineeth Bajpai..

Book review

Mild spoilers.... None to change the course of your opinion though!

Rating...3/5

Finally the adventure which started with one book got its final season in this one! (Or is it!!?)

My daughter Kashika lept up in Joy seeing the title of the book thinking that I bought this one because of her!

In the same treatment as with his earlier works like Pralay and Harappa; Vineeth takes the gore many steps further and gives a generous dose of death and mayhem!

The battle scenes and the description of the chief villian reminds me of the beast villian and war scenes of Bahubali!

Though I pre ordered this one, I could get to it only couple of days back and I had to brush through the previous books to remind myself of the story till now!

The fact that both Patala prophecy by C Doyle and Kalchakra by Ashwin were also written on similar lines, it was a miracle that I did not mix up the characters and story with this book!!

So Vidyut who is the original hero and Devta has been shown to be taking over the mantle of humanity! A parallel track describes Manu in a similar manner!

The middle description of scriptures in the style of Ashwin Sanghi was more vocal and open in this book! Everything from templar knights to religion to terrorism to black plague and most importantly world trade centre attack have been given juicy theories! Don't fringe now please just because it's an Indian and not Dan Brown who has written this!

The author also mentions several real conspiracy theories and a special mention about Yuval Noah Harari means that he himself is well read!

So with an overdose of puranas and religion, this is a good way to spend your three hours wanting for more!

To those who drool over anyone who abuses curses or demeans the scriptures, you can give this one a pass and save us the review stating the abysmal grammar and vocabulary nuances!

For those who liked the works of Amish, Ashwin or C Doyle or even Dev Dutt Patnaik, you will like this one too!

For those who have read the first two books, you have no choice but to read and get a closure! Or would you!!?

Kashi, the temple is only black but it's also blue!
