But it was said that the path was dangerous and cursed, a blood road and whoever crossed it never survived. Even though the path was dangerous, but their desperateness for rest that made others agree with the decision. But as said the 5 did lose someone in the valley, but who?

A civilization Kushlam located between two mountains, a city of Lord Visnu, filled with gold and beautiful houses. A mahant (Monk) broke his 3 years austerity as he sensed the arrival of the destined one from the golden lake. Kushlam is Lord Visnu’s city and from thousands of years, the city had an enemy that only a few remember. Even though the city has forgotten the enemy, but the evil hasn’t and they still remember and are waiting for all these years to take revenge.

The destined one is one of the 5 merchants and when the king, and others were told about his role, no one believes it, not even the destined one himself.

When the writer finally meets Jim, the subject of his proposed book, he is amazed in many ways, for Jim’s tale is no ordinary one. It is closely intertwined with many complex situations and incredible characters, both good and evil.

Though the author has given fictional names to ordinary things, I still found myself interested and eager to read ahead.

Mrs. Basu's Uncensored Familism By Chirasree Bose

The Blurb & The Story: 

Mrs. Arpita Basu, the only daughter-in-law of Basu family, is here to tell you a story that will leave your stomach hurting with chuckles and laughter. A Chudail to her prim mother-in-law, inexistent to the devil father-in-law, a damped down bomb to her once best friend Naveena and well, nothing whatsoever to her own husband Akash, the 23-year-old finds herself questioning the very concept of familism as her six months of tumultuous married life is hit with unanswerable questions sprouting every now and then in her head.

Speaking of head, what do you think is its importance in Mrs. Basu's life? Oh boy, you're in for a surprise! Because the quirks of their tongue-in-cheek relationship is bound to make you split your sides. 

However, in a split second Mrs. Basu's life goes kaput as her dark past comes knocking at the door. While she struggles to keep it at bay, her husband leaves her side with no promise of coming back ever. 

Is it mere coincidence that her past holds a connection to the disappearance of her husband? 

Or, is it what Mrs. Basu deserves for all she did in the past? 

This chapter of her life will unravel the mysteries of the present, all the knots of the past and the road to the future. Of course, in the most hilarious way possible.

My Take: 

A book filled with dramatic mother-in-law along with humor and laughter. I loved every part of the book. From Indian saas-bahu serials that mother in law watched to the gossips of the maids from one room to another and their rebels. From a husband's lack of attention in a new arranged marriage to the growth of new love along with a shocking twist, everything is penned perfectly along with the difference between family and Familism. I also like the part where the author Chirasree Bose explains one should change own's vision before changing others and breaking the cycle of men being superior to women. As I read this book and I'm sure if anyone else starts to read this, it may seem that this book is a comedy genre, but I found this book eye-opening and impressive. When Author Chirasree Bose said I want to get rid of the monster; i.e my head. I felt that. I like the storyline and there is something to learn in every chapter. The talk about Karma, the change and growth of the character from a shy girl to speaking up. I liked the realistic touch of the saas-bahu relation in Indian. 

Overall I loved this humor-filled book and not only did I enjoyed reading but also loved the characters. So click on the link now and read yourself Mrs. Basu's Uncensored Familism By Chirasree Bose:

War of Secrets by Kumar Nishant

The Blurb:

“Oh God. Man, I am a techie…!!, no soldier !!” – thoughts abruptly broke the boundaries of brain and rode on the boisterous vocal cord of Rajiv.

Rajiv is a geek, who is enthusiastic about computers and lives in an advanced world of robots, self-driven cars, and teleporting machines. He is fortunate to have a job in the government department, offering a perfect blend to his passion. He is happily married to Saumya and is an alien to his niece, Sneha; who simply cannot believe, that Rajiv has seen the era devoid of most of the advanced gadgets of her time. She loves to hear Rajiv’s stories and not believe them.

But the happy go lucky life of Rajiv, goes topsy-turvy when he is entangled in an abduction drama engulfing his team lead, Sriram, and a few other colleagues. He is astonished to know that the conspiracy was orchestrated by none other than the government itself on the pretext of security breach in an extremely confidential and ambitious weapon project.

Rajiv’s esoteric skills are at loggerheads with that of an equally competent, if not superior enemy. What seems to be the tracking of enemy, ultimately transpires into an absolute microcosm. As the layers unfold, the roots of the hostile guests are traced to the transnational boundary. Degree of threat not only increases, but becomes somewhat incalculable. It can only be conjectured.

How may secrets can Rajiv Withstand? Can Sehshan meet the deadline of 20 days? If not, then what?? Can they all put together, tenterhook the enemy? Can Rajiv bail them out? Will he turn out to be the weakest link in the company of soldiers? Will Rajiv return to hug Saumya? Will he be able to complete the stories Sneha yearns for?

Yes or no, whatever be the answer to all the above questions, the only constant remains is that each and every stakeholder will definitely end up with unforgettable memories.

"The Story: 

The story begins with Rajiv waking up by Alexa and then telling stories to his niece about the time with no gadgets as currently, they live a world of Robots. With Automated car drive, with walls installed with projectors and Artificial intelligent secretary to assist you in all manner. 

Rajiv a skilled computer professional who works at a high profile tech government firm. Rajiv is living in an automated world but he has seen the era when there were no such technologies and telling about it to his niece is his favorite part. 

Receiving a stress signal from office Rajiv rush to his office only to be kidnapped with his teams. As Rajiv was worrying about his wife Saumya and Family, he comes to know the kidnapping was fake done by the government only to capture the real culprit that tried to hack in an extremely confidential and ambitious weapon project. So a secret mission was kept in front of Rajiv.

A secret mission for 20 days, where he risks his life in order to help catch the enemy and protect our country. So will Rajiv achieve his goal of catching the bad guys? In the age of Robots, how will Rajiv catch them? Are the skills of Rajiv enough to help the government? What happens after 20 days are over?" 

My Take: 

The story War of Secrets is great and pleasant to read the story. I like the plot, twist and turns in the story. The characters were well defined and were perfectly fitted with the story. As the storyline is in the future with the world living in Tech, I loved how Author Kumar Nishant has described the ear without tech too. The most favorite part of the story was, that I liked, was when Rajiv told that stories to his niece. 

The 20-day secret mission was well defined and the suspense was built perfectly. All the computer terms and networks were defined in details giving an allusion that the author itself is a hacker ;) 

Overall I loved the book and once you start reading it, you will find your self hooked into it until you finish the book. Its a perfect fiction story that will take only a day to read. So click on the link to read and unrevealed the secret of war by yourself:

The Last War: & Other Stories by Sambit Daspatnaik

The Blurb:

The year was 2080 BCE… The epic Mahabharata war that was fought thousands of years ago between the Pandavas and the Kauravas was thought to be the last. But generations later, everyone was mistaken. The descendants of the Pandavas and the Kauravas (Pauravas) faced a mammoth invasion by the Gandharvas. The Pauravas had to face new geographical and political challenges to save the land of Bharata (Ancient India). New lessons were learned, old secrets were unveiled and new allies were made. Would the Pauravas be able to save the city of Moenjo and Hariapa? Would the Ancient Aliens (the sky Gods) really come to their rescue? Read on to know more in the story "The Last War".

Can we really rely on an extra-terrestrial object as the source of unlimited power? What would be the repercussion? Read on to know more in the story "Genesis".

A team of researchers went to an alien planet that was inhabited by humanoid species. However, they were faced by an imminent danger. Would Captain Hari get an answer to the imminent threat that lies ahead for his crew? A spiritual journey awaits you in an alien planet in the story "The Holy Temple of Eula".

Anna hated her eyes. But what you think as a curse can turn out to be a blessing in a blink of an eye. Explore the space travel through Anna's eyes in the story "BLINK".

What if our Sun was on the verge of extinction? And what if we could resurrect our dying star? Read on to know more in the story "Resurrection".

Sambit Daspatnaik offers a collection of Science Fiction stories and fantasies to trigger your mind to explore the unexplored and to ask What If!

The Story: 

The book contains 5 interesting stories, of which "The Last War" is the main story and rest are short stories. 

The Last War, fought between the Pauravas and the Gandharvas. The story revolves mainly around Agrasena the head of the Army, princess Charulata and other characters. It's easy to fight an army of soldiers but not if they are powered with magic. Agrasena had never encountered with such an enemy before (the "Mayavis") and the first battle was lost. But to regain what was theirs, Agrasena needed to learn the magical techniques himself to save his kingdom from the evil invaders. So how does Agrasena learn the magical ways of the mayavis? What happens at the end of the last war? Are sky Gods really just aliens that visit our planet only when needed?

Story 2 Genesis, a short story on an object with unlimited power. 

Story 3 The Holy Temple of Eula, A team of scientists from earth traveled to an alien planet where humanoid species lived, only to find later that there were deaths due to a disease that not only took the life of aliens but also of our researchers. Captain Hari goes to his extreme length to not only help his fellow crew members but also the Aliens themselves. How will he do that? Will he be able to succeed in doing so?

Story 4 Blink, In an Accident Anna lost her eyes and got eyes transplanted which made her see again, but she hated her eyes. During the space patrolling with her crew, they faced imminent danger, with an alien that no one could see except Anna, So will she defeat this invisible alien and save her team?

Story 5 Resurrection, What if the sun dies? and what if we had a way to resurrect the star again? Will it restore the solar system as we know or will it change to something else? 

My Take: 

As I read the story The Last war, I said, Yesss Finally I found someone that too thinks that maybe Gods are Aliens visiting our planet Earth from time to time and there are laws in the universe that govern the extent to which they can interfere with human civilizations ;) 

Author Sambit Daspatnaik has written stories in a very detailed way and must say has a very vivid imagination and a keen eye to details. Writing about war can be easy but writing with Aliens and their technologies and keeping in mind about our real world, it takes hard work and a great deal of patience. And you can see the hard work by reading the stories. I liked the way the author has described new technologies beyond our imaginations and how characters reacted when they first saw it. I like the part when the author says the Sky gods are aliens and there are laws that prevents them to use their powers on earth.

Overall this book is filled with a lot of imaginations and yet you can feel deep down that yes it can happen. I loved the realistic touch to the stories and would recommend everyone to read it. So click on the link and read your self "The Last War"....... will the sky god help us?:
