Chanakya's Chant (Paperback) Price: Rs.881

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.

About the Author

Ashwin Sanghi is an entrepreneur by day and a novelist by night. He has done his MBA in finance from the Yale School of Management. His first book was The Rozabal Line.

Disappointed

I 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 bee... ()

The writer's though process on this novel has been overly simplistic and writing style is lame. I hope the writer expects his readers to be more matured next time around and should not pass on such stuff to them. Unfortunate to see big names and newspapers backing this book. Lobbying is good but the stuff needs to be worthwhile.

400 pages of bull

I picked up this book expecting another Shiva trilogy but it must have been my unluckiest day in months.

This novel has nothing to offer. The story is pretty ordinary. Plots are a hodgepodge of contemporary political and economic scams, dumbed down to the level of a house plant. The punch lines are borrowed from quotes, tweets, memes any other source available on the internet and badly forced into the story-line. Usage of words is often incongruous. Some very pathetic Munna-Bhai-esque practical solutions are proferred for pervading social problems and political ills which do not make the l...

Some very pathetic Munna-Bhai-esque practical solutions are proferred for pervading social problems and political ills which do not make the least sense. Suspected one-liners smash flat on their faces.

The one thing that this book does is boost your confidence; if such crap can become an alleged national best-seller why shouldn't you write one yourself.

Need more matureness

Well written, nice data collection and presentation . Ashwin Sanghi has matured in this title and even understood or learned from previous book Rozabal Line .
Only complain about book is its loss of tracks in between chapters . Since both 2 stories are running parallels , there would've been much better ending of each chapter , it seemed like author in chase to bring suspense has ended each chapter at very unexpected point. So , every time I got entertained by a chapter and it ended makin me loose out the starting few pages of new chapter just in hurry to complete the previous story .

Please don't insult Chankya (I felt it) by quoting some other leaders quote by him . He has got his enough share of wisdom to be quoted rather than to be speakin of some others .

Really a tiresome book .. disappointing

This 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 i... ()

Gangasagar comes across as a despicable weirdo and Chandni as a rather slow person. I found it hard to finish the last few chapters.. only thing that made it worth reading till end was Chandni's reunion with Harry (please read the novel to find out who is harry).. Hope Aswin's next novel doesn't disappoint so. India has a rich source of traditions to draw from, please be fair to the inspiration you draw..

totally overrated

The author tried his hand at history, enigma, politics and what not and what do we get... a bunch of situations that, oh so conveniently, work out exactly as the author (oh sorry.. the guru) wanted. The beauty of it all is that the storyline is so simplistic that it may have written by a child wh... (View complete review)

Good coffee-table read!

Reads like a bollywood movie. So perhaps there might be one that is based on it.

Wont be a book that will add anything to your life apart from time well spent not watching tv or any other wasteful things you do!

Good Start but disappoints later

The first Story of Chankya is Good but the second story that goes side by side slowly loses its charm and becomes really boring. I would suggest not to waste money on this (View complete review)
