Chanakya’s Chant by Ashwin Sanghi – a review


Chanakya's chant by ashwin sanghi


Author: Ashwin Sanghi

Publisher: Westland

Number of pages: 450

Genre: Thriller

My Verdict:
I took up this book after I read ‘The Krishna Key’ by Ashwin Sanghi and I truly loved his work in both the books. I would like to give one star more to this one as it is very much well researched and deeply studied book which anyone else would feel like a torture to read, research and study so deeply.
Secondly, the story or the plot described is so eloquent that one starts reading the book and is forced to turn the pages as the story goes on. It is not possible to keep the book down once one has started reading the book. One thing I liked most about this book is one chapter is in the past at Chanakya’s time and the following chapter is present time which enables one to relate to the concept the author has tried to put up.
Every character and their respective roles are so precisely defined. The politics, the games the politicians play is well described and author is very much successful in portraying that beautifully. Writing this kind of book is a tough job and Ashwin Sanghi has done it nicely.
I took around 2 weeks to finish this book and I am happy with the book as I did it in just 2 weeks, that too with tight schedule. Somehow I managed to read the book every day or every second day in the night. Well, this can be due to my love for suspense/thriller genre also.
I would truly recommend this book to anybody who loves to read history and political type of books as it will be of a great interest to them. The vocabulary used is somewhat difficult in the chapters which are shown in the past (I felt so, but still it’s an interesting read). Truly recommended book.

My rating: 4.5/5

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...

Are you ready for starting a business?

 Starting a business can be a daunting task. You require courage, determination and confidence in doing so. There may be thousands or even millions of startup ideas that would encourage you for starting your own business. The question is not that you straightaway jump into an arena mindlessly. It takes a moment to decide a good thing but several moments to decide what is the best thing for you.  You could join any of the several business startup programs and learn the tricks of the trade. You could also rely on your inner conscience for taking the big leap. I prefer taking the latter approach. This is because I believe in the fact that experience is the best teacher. Whether you are stuck in a boring job or your personality doesn't allow you to work under somebody etc. Whatever may be the reason, you must be ready for starting a business right? Below mentioned is a checklist which would help you in getting answer to the question: 1. You are confident of your ski
