  1.  A Masterpiece , Great Insight into Politics 18 May, 2015 On Amazon.com
    Beautifully written book.
    Polictics is a Genre which is difficult to get into and make interesting.
    Most of the times you predict what might happen and get it right.
    In this book I was surprised by the twists and turn and cunningness of both CHanakya and Gangasagar.

    The link between the 2 characters is awesome, Chandni and Chandragupta are postrayed nicely too.
    The characters are so well defined and writen, you just keep going and going into the book despite it being a long book.
    The langauge is smooth and transition between various episodes is nicely done.

    I liked the way the 2 stories run in parallel and portray the growth of the 2 leaders.

    Politics can be a beautiul tool to help the country grom or Kill it. I like the way chankya says "Leader is not the server of the population but a master, he just portrays that he is the server" also keep 10% money for yourself but give the rest out to people. You should make money but help the country grow so that you can make more money.

    The Hook and Crook methods of getting votes is nicely described.
    I just hope current say politicians help the counrty grow and also the people, I dont care if they get kickbacks and make money as long as People grow and are well off

    I full 5/5 from me

  2.  Must Read 12 May, 2015 On Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Great read. Simple, basic. Explains how primitive politics may have worked in independent India. And also could be right in guessing how a few things might be working out today in politics. To say the least it reflects accurately on the politicians' characteristics.
  3.  Good read! 18 December, 2014 On Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The juxtaposition of two eras and the politics was quite the racy read. The amount of callousness in some situations did make me cringe at times. But this is not the regular happy ending story. There are many twists and turns.

    bit of a bore. juxtaposition of ancient and modern. but the treatment has been written to tittilate and the story becomes predictable.

  6.  Worth a read.... definitely. 19 September, 2014 On Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Nice book, well researched though borrowed heavily from old series Chanakya. But at times you start disliking the main protagonist. But definitely a good book.

    An inspiring storyline which maintains a perfect sync and pace between Chanakya of the past and present. Must read for all fictional story lovers

    The speed and perfect hold on both the plots simultaneously is what makes him different from writers This book is the pinnacle of entertainment in detail.
  9.  Glorious past & insipid present day 31 July, 2014 On Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The historic part is well researched and the narrative chugs along fast. Chandragupta's character pales in contrast to plots and intrigues of Chanakya's. It may have deserved 5 stars if confined to the past However the present day narrative is repetitive and must have been featured in some Bollywood movies.
  10.  Good Book 6 July, 2014 On Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
