Chanakya’s Chant is about the existence of Chanakya in both the old Bharat and the Modern India. The book is a historical spine chiller which looks into whether Chanakya’s chant will work again as it did before.
Summary of the Book
In 340 BC a young Brahmin who is being hunted is haunted by the gruesome murder of his father and has sworn to take revenge. In his state of mind he turns out to be a leader who is cold and cruel and is armed with the absence of any kind of morality. He decides to eliminate the demigod: Alexander the Great and is successful in his mission to do so. He is known in history as the famous strategist Chanakya.
History repeats itself and Chanakya is born again after two millennia. Modern India is in the same state as ancient India in terms of class, hatred corruption and politics. Whether Chanakya’s Chant will work again is the real question.

~AverageHow do you feel when you are watching a thriller when the climax is already known? The entire book is a cliche of all the Indian movies ! And the facts about Chanakya are also messed up ! The author has used all the possible quotes from the net to give Chanakya a superhuman form but fails miserably to give you the impact. Unless you want to feel good about Chanakya - you can easily avoid it

DisappointedI had got great reviews of CC from a couple of people and that is the reason I picked CC. On the premise of it, it looks a great idea of paralleled story with Chanakya's but it has been a hugely dissatisfying experience reading the novel. It's mark of immature writing especially in the present day story of Gangasagar Mishra, the novel turns out to be lame. Chanakya's part is written better but I can gather same/more info from wikipedia than goign through this 450 odd page of book which after a point becomes painful read (almost at 50 pages). The writer's though process on this novel has been o… (Expand)

Need more maturenessWell written, nice data collection and presentation . Ashwin Sanghi has matured in this title and even understood or learned from previous book Rozabal Line .

Really a tiresome book .. disappointingThis book was a thorough let down after the Rozabal line. While Rozabal Line was itself not a great literary work itself, if one ignored the lame story, it actually had a lot of interesting historical insights on how Jesus may have been influenced by Indian Philosophy.. that itself was its redeeming aspect. Unfortunately CC had nothing of that sort. While the parts dealing with Chankya were bearly readable, the parts that dealt with his contemporary counterpart was, for want of a better word, lame. Gangasagar comes across as a despicable weirdo and Chandni as a rather slow person. I found it h… (Expand)

Waste of time - just riding on the name of ChanakyaI finished this book only since I bought it and started reading it. Its coarsely written, and Chanakya's dialogues are nothing but a collection of very famous quotes. Its real cheap to even give Patton's immortalized quotes as Chanakya's. Even though the author gives the glossary of quotes where he is drawing from, it does not do justice by having historic names in such comic fashion !

Chanakya's ChantI was tempted by buy and read this book by Ashwin Sanghi after reading a few reviews at flipkart. The author has done his best to malign the greatest diplomat-cum-saint Chanakya. While I enjoyed the modern day story of Gangadhar running parallel to that of Chanakya of 2300 years ago, I was appalled at author's deliberate attempt to discredit everything Chanakya did for his nation at that time. Very few of the readers might have already read books portraying Chanakya as the hero and those who did will know instantly that the author has made deliberate attempts to discredit the great hero. "The … (Expand)

Nice one time read... thats it!The book looks unreal at several places... too fictitious! Though stories about Chanakya made the book interesting.. but the way the other protagonist functions makes him look as if the entire world of politics can be puppeted at his will. Though, at some places, the intelligence of the character impresses you, but it fails to make you believe that it exists.. and the entire book looks like a well written novel. There is not much in the book, in terms of language and philosophy, that might pull you to go through its pages more than once.

Dont waste your time!Honestly - The concept is great, but the writing is at best very very poor. I will give this book a "D".
