“They turned to see his tears of love wiping away her blood of agony…”

Diya throws Suraj’s proposal back in his face, leaving him broken-hearted. Why would she do so when she loved him desperately?

Suraj finds his Guruji unconscious beside a cave clutching the warrior Indrajith’s diary. His heart-rending love story then unfolds. Being trapped in a web of emotions, Indrajith endured the pain of his lost love, hurting himself and trampled Deepali’s hope for his adopted brother… Who was he?

Sealed for centuries and holding the Mann-Parivarthana astra, the cave is besieged by evil now. But all attempts to unlock it go futile. Faced with baffling hints, Suraj’s intelligence is sorely tested. What is the potent power required to break through that Paanch-Dost-Gupha?


Will the fire of love ever flicker in the hearts of Diya and Suraj?

Cover :

The cover very well says that this book is a mythological thriller. And the crew of soldiers in the warfield at the bottom gives a clue that the book has much more to reveal. 

Review :
The author recieves a special applause for choosing a unique plot and also she has succeeded in leaving vibes in the readers heart. The story revolves around two different eras – the present and the past. It starts with the failed attempt of Asur to open a cave and eventually the simultaneous chapters speaks about the present where Suraj, the Bollywood actor proposes his friend Diya and faces embarrassment. Then the connection between the present and the past opens up when Suraj finds Indrajeeth’s diary. Then his past life strikes him and he realises that he is none other than Indrajeeth in this present era. Further the plot develops on how suraj wins his love which he lost in the past and how he achieves the taal patras and Mann-Parivarthana Astra, fighting against the past life enemies- Bakula and Asur.

Appreciation :

The author has very well differentiated both the eras without leaving any confusion in the readers mind. Though the story has many characters, every character is portrayed with utmost care and the love of Indrajeeth and Deepali leaves an impact in the readers mind. The ANAHATA Chakra plays an important role in the story and it says the value of love in one’s life. The author uses simple yet elegant language which comforts our reading. The tactics employed to open the knob of the cave and also the way Diya opens the golden box left me speechless and it showed author’s hard work. The book is almost like a movie with unexpected twists, turns and shocking flashbacks. Over all, this book is a combination of emotions like friendship, love, feelings, parental care, revenge, enemity, thrill and mystery. Gear up for a thrill ride to a mysterical land to meet your ancestors in this book.
