    Shiva, 35, hotshot executive, recently divorced, disillusioned with his life and fed up of the rat race in the corporate world, topples completely over the edge after an unexpected tragic incident. In a hilarious journey from the boardrooms of Bangalore to the hippies, face readers, casinos and rave parties on the verdant beaches of Goa, Shiva attempts to 'escape from it all' till his life suddenly changes in miraculous ways after an electrifying act of nature bestows him with an extraordinary gift. Anchored by the strong bond of friendship with his college mates, Sid and Adi, and propelled by love for Anita his estranged ex-wife, Shiva attempts to make the most of his incredible gift to unravel the secrets of life, death and happiness as the story races to its exhilarating conclusion in the exotic jungle valley of Arambol, Goa. A Bolt of Lightning is a witty and contemporary take on a midlife crisis story with an unusual twist in the tale. It at once touches the heart and entertains while offering a fascinating new perspective of the world we inhabit.

    This fiction makes you introspect!

    I received a preview of this book in my mail. I went through it and could not resist to read the whole book.
    It is a fiction. But every episode strikes you like a bolt of lightening. It makes you sit up, do some serious thinking about life.. There are no sermons. But it takes you along on a journey of life and teaching you about life in a humorous and light way.
    The style is racy and prods you to know "what next"...........the book is unputdownable until last page!

    A must read.

    An awesome book dealing with actual realities of life, interspersed with intelligent medical humour, quirks and brilliantly interwoven mundane ordinary things in life. One will find oneself identified with one of the characters and will probably wish to settle down in Goa soon :):):)

    The abuse of drugs, depression, loneliness which seeps its reach in today's society is aptly dealt in this book. On the other side, life is fun and anytime salvageable is also depicted vividly in this book. This...

    A Fascinating Story

    I read this book in a single session.

    The story is so very engaging that your curosity forces you to keep

    reading. The language is rich and flowery , may be over done at times,

    but the twists and turns in the novel keep you enthralled and as the book

    ended I went in to some serious introspection about life , after life and fate.

    The Philosphical undertones in the novel make this effort remarkable and

    admirable .

    A bolt of lightning indeed

    Surprisingly great book coming from a practicing doctor. The writing is very much like coming from an experienced literature glitterati.

Even the darkness of the characters life is dealt in a joyous fashion which is how life should be lived today to enjoy it to the fullest. Multiple facets of a human beings characters and experiences we undergo in everyday living has been touched upon. I...

    A bolt of Lightening - by Satyen Nabar

    Satyen Nabar's "in your face, speak your mind" style is a rare gem.

    All 30+ guys can relate to something or the other in the novel. There is a glimpse of "Shiva" in each one of us when going through mid-life crisis...

    Could have done without some of the "goody stuff" like the positive end, to be in tune with reality. (Actually, this is how I would have liked it to end, however, each one to his own...)

    Nevertheless, an awesome read!
    Eagerly awaiting his next one...
