In fact, it’s a thriller the place crime occurs, even police procedural initiated, mythology and historical past referred, science explored, human psychology and HR is elaborated, and human psyche is handled altogether. Nevertheless, I contemplate this ebook a journey of self-discovery.
Self-discovery is all the time a central theme in all of Abhaidev’s books, and this ebook continues the pattern.

I’m God. However that isn’t my title. I used to be there earlier than the start. I might be there after the tip. In between, I manifest myself into numerous types, dwelling or non- dwelling. I’m one but many.
Folks sacrifice themselves in my title. Folks harm others in my title. Neither makes me glad. Nor does it make me sorrowful. Neither do I rejoice nor do I despair.
I’m not in search of a messenger, nor do I want to save people from something.
But, these saviours spring up infrequently on the timeline of eternity.

Megha couldn’t be fooled. A lady all the time is aware of what the opposite girl is as much as, for she is presented with the innate school to understand feelings precisely.
nobody is as harmful as a lady, who’s compelled to dwell away from a person she needs.
Nobody is as unpredictable and hostile as an ex-devotee who dares to confront and expose the vices and flaws of the guru who he as soon as revered as God.
