Overview: The Mahabharata Secret

The Mahabharata Secret is a thriller written by Christopher Doyle. It is a heady mix of mythology, religion, science and terrorism. The book' intriguing storyline takes readers all the way back in time to ancient India in 244 BC; and later brings them right back into the modern day sub-continent that we know of today.

This thriller begins with the famous Emperor, Ashoka the Great, discovering a dark and terrible secret hidden deep in some lost texts of the great epic, Mahabharata. He deems this knowledge too dangerous for mankind to uncover and hides it; so that no one can ever find the same. This secret, which manages to remain hidden for 2300 years, has the power to cause massive destruction if it falls into the wrong hands and can change the world in many ways.

The story suddenly returns to the present where a retired nuclear scientist, Vikram Singh, has been found murdered. His nephew Vijay has received an email from his uncle, sent just before his demise which contains some cryptic clues. These clues lead Vijay and his friends from one puzzle to the next as they try to unravel the secret locked in his uncle's message. Through the story, they find themselves among ancient ruins, with more puzzles to be solved and more ciphers to be decoded.

Vijay and his friends are in a race against time, and as they rush to solve the mystery of his uncle's death and message, they have an ominous feeling of being watched and followed by an unknown and mysterious presence. Also, the reader is taken through a series of dangerous adventures, starting in India and going all the way up to the destroyed statue of Buddha in Afghanistan, and back again. The plot is a veritable roller coaster ride that involves constant threat from a mysterious dark force, ruthless terrorists, a secret weapon and a group of unusual people with a secret mission. This spine chilling adventure combines history, mythology, suspense and science; so as to tell a gripping tale.

An Exciting Debut Novel

Christopher C. Doyle graduated from St. Stephens College, Delhi, with a degree in Economics, and studied Business Management at IIM Calcutta. He worked with leading multinationals before setting up a strategic consultancy in India, in partnership with a US based firm. Over the course of his corporate career, Christopher has written articles on management and business for Indian and international publications and is also a regular invited speaker for international conventions and conferences.

Christopher Doyle grew up on a steady diet of books--ranging from classical literature to science fiction, fantasy, poetry and plays--and dreamed of becoming a writer at a very early age. The science fiction of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein and the fantasies scripted by Tolkien, Robert Jordan and Terry Brooks had inspired him to write as a young schoolboy.

  1.  Unbelievable Secret of Ancient India 18 December, 2013 On
    A stunning book of mythological fiction based on extensive research on the great Hindu epic Mahabharata, by the author; another Management Graduate, who joins the league of recent young Indian authors, in bringing forth, the great secrets of the Indian mythological epics to the readers.

    Storyline: Vikram Singh, an Indian nuclear scientist, and the last remaining member of a secret brotherhood of the Nine, sends a coded mail to his nephew, Vijay working in USA, passing on the great two thousand year old secret of Mahabharata and requesting him to maintain, it after his death. This great secret is passed on over centuries through a secret brotherhood scattered across the world. Vikram Singh is murdered just after sending this mail by Farooq Siddique, another nuclear scientist from Pakistan, who is also an active member of Al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the two dreaded terrorist organizations of the world. Farooq learns from Vikram about the secret brotherhood of the Nine (nine members chosen by King Ashoka, the great emperor of India, who ruled the country in about 300 BC) to protect the deadly secret of his unexpected discovery, in a hidden cavern of a hill in a dense forest that contains the secrets of the missing book in Mahabharata called the ‘Vimana Parva’. This missing book is said to have information and blue prints about deadly flying objects designed to destroy the opponents, using a kind of technology which is unknown to the modern world even today. LeT is all set to get access to this technology to build their own weaponry system and control the entire world, aided by a powerful consortium, across the world, forever. Vijay, with the help of his friend Collins, Prof Shukla (an expert in ancient history of India) and his daughter Radha (nuclear physicist) together solve the various exciting riddles and puzzles created by the brotherhood of “Nine” to reach the actual physical site, where the great unbelievable secret of the Mahabharata has been concealed for over 2300 years. Farooq, with his men, trail Vijay and his friends, down to the secret location and try to get the same smuggled out of the country. But, their attempt is foiled by the Indian Intelligence Bureau with the help of Indian Army. In this battle, the secret location, with all its valuable possessions are destroyed forever. Vijay, later, discovers that the secret coded ancient knowledge about Vimana Parva and other valuable ancient science, gathered by his uncle Vikram Singh, is already deciphered/documented by the later into English and stored in a secret place in his residence, followed by Vikram’s request to Vijay to take up the position of the Nine, after him. I prefer not revealing the secret here, to maintain the interest of the reader, in the book.

    Positives: The book has the ability to be finished in a single sitting as it arouses wonderful page turning experience filled with suspense and mind boggling riddles to be solved in order to reach the great secret. The author’s extensive research into the Indian history excites the reader with awe and keeps him wondered as to how advanced the science of the ancients was, compared to the present, particularly the flying objects and the famous Sudarshan Chakra, said to be the celestial weapons of Gods, used in the Great War of Mahabharata between Pandavas and Kauravas. Will be a massive blockbuster if converted into a movie.

    Negatives: A doubt as to why King Ashoka did not destroy the dangerous Mahabharata secret, knowing that it is detrimental to the world peace, in case it falls into wrong hands, exist, instead of taking such great pains in protecting the same, for generations. The good characters in the story, always seemed to get everything right every time, which seemed to be of little exaggeration. The suspected characters are too easy to be identified right from the beginning.

    My rating is 4.5/5.

  2.  A feeble attempt 9 August, 2014 On
    Okay!! I'm not saying this is a bad book. It's good. It's interesting.

    But, it's too obvious an inspiration of Dan Brown work. A similar book "The Krishna Key" is written by Ashwin Sanghi.

    And that too is about Mahabharat & Krishna. This is more a YA fiction. The lead roles Vijay & Colin appear more like a couple than BFFs.

    Their humor is annoying at times. The author portrayed them as adventurous, but missed out on giving them brains. *Spoiler Alert: The antagonists will be following them from their house, airport etc and kidnap / attack them multiple times.

    But, still they lack the common sense to go into hiding and stay at the same place letting the bad guys watch and follow them everywhere they go, running into more attacks. The bad guys steal a lot of their work too. But, still the concept of hiding / stealth don't go into their thick brains.

    You can read this, if you're a fan of this genre. Otherwise, you can pass.

  3.  Awesome experience reading it!! 29 May, 2015 On
    I just started reading book which I recently purchased from Amazon. I still did not finish reading this book but still would like to write about my experience reading this book.

    This book is just awesome!! Its page turner, you cannot be for long before you go into this next chapter and discover what the suspense was all about.

    Amazingly written fiction about how Vijay Singh and his friends decipher the clues left by his uncle Vikram who has been protecting an ancient secret that has been safeguarded from the time of Ashoka the Great - A secret that can destroy the world if falls in the wrong hands, the secret from the great Epic Mahabharata.

    Also the link between fiction and science has been brilliantly used.

    Would highly recommend everyone to read this book!!

  4.  A tiring joourney 12 March, 2014 On
    I am an avid reader and typically finish one piece of fiction every month. This is one of the most boring and tiring pieces I have come across in my reading life. The story is very predictive and the style of narration is dry. I still read it till the end because the secret is revealed in the last few chapters. A poor inspiration from Ashwin Sanghi's slightly better work "The Krishna Key". Not recommended.
