Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro a part of history which is very fascinating and mystical. The civilisation which got destroyed and left us with a lot of unanswered questions.

Happened to get this book, what attracted me towards it was honestly the name. Its a secret wish to turn back time and see what that period looked like. A piece of fiction, however, I wanted to read the book to know the writer’s imagination of that time. Trust me I wasn’t disappointed.

It’s a story which has its roots in Harappa, Benaras and Rome? Quite a thriller it would keep you on the edge. The writer has connected three dots intermittently in the book so with each chapter there is suspense, mystery and lot of unanswered questions. The chapter would close on such a note and then the next scene would be a different place. I got irritated with this pattern but it led to my eagerness to read more. That’s the fun, right?

 

Plot:

Harappa a magnificent city on the banks of river Saraswati so much advanced than we thought off with a great culture. A person revered as the Sun of Harappa, a man worshipped for decades as a devta (half man – half God) destroying his own city?

A city where goodness ruled was plagued by the evil eye of a woman. Heaven on earth suddenly became a centre of bloodshed. A story which no one could think off was hidden from us why?

Cut 2017, a person summoned by his ancestor with a deep secret which lies in his heart. What is so special about this person, just that he is from the lineage of the devta or reincarnation? Why is a hitman after him? What is this dark secret?

Treachery at its best should I say?

Its a mix of history, drama, thriller, mythology and suspense, complete masala for a great book.

Genre: Thriller – Mystery

What I learnt is  –

 

🍁🍁 No matter what, good or bad you pay for your deeds. Karma follows you.

🍁🍁 Trust is the quintessence of a relationship, however, not all can be trusted.

🍁🍁 What works for you always is your inner strength nothing before or after it.

🍁🍁 Trust your instincts.

🍁🍁 Knowledge or Vidya will always support you.

 

🍁🍁 Good, will always supercede evil, it always did and will always do. 🍁🍁

 

On a lighter note, a good writer can really help you transform back in time. I enjoyed this ride and am looking forward to the Part II, picture abhi baaki hai mere dost!
