    About the Author :-

    Nilanjan P. Choudhury’s debut novel Bali and the Ocean of Milk received wide critical acclaim and was a brief best-seller.   This is his second novel and the first adventure in the Chatterjee Institute of Detection series. He confesses to having studied at IIM Ahmedabad and IIT Kanpur and hopes that this will not be held against him. He lives in Bangalore with his wife, a daughter, a mother-in-law, a day job in the IT industry and a home loan. It’s a wonder he manages to write anything at all apart from EMI cheques. He can be reached at www.nilanjan.net

    Bali and the Ocean of Milk

    Frothy manthan, indeed!

    You would love it for the following, at least I did!
    Its humor, even in somber moments.
    Its gripping pace, just when you are beginning to feel that things are sobering down in the three worlds!
    Its anecdotal tributes to some of our childhood heroes, books and comics!

    You wished the author has not rushed through on some sections, you certainly wish Indrah was less of a Tricksie Turncoat, his redemption was almost Bollywoodish!

    But you certainly would wish that the...

    Good book, written with roller coaster speed, worth a read

    1st thing 1st, I haven't bought this from flipkart and just pick it as random choice from a book store. Despite of lesser star given by goodreads.com (3 star i guess), I thought of to give this one a try.
    Pros :
    - Well try was not at all bad, I was not sure if it happen the way writer narrates the story or some other way but on the whole a good book which worth a read.
    - All characters build, showed in a proper way that reader won't regret on anything.
    Cons :
    - 2 charater tara and her male in...

    Ok, but hasty ending spoils some fun

    Started like a 5 star meal, in between became dhaba fare and towards the end it was complete fast food from roadside stall..

    He he!!! In other words, its a really good book, I absolutely recommend it.. But its not a great book thought it started with a potential to be one...

    Jai veru, jai samba ;)

    Bali and the Ocean of Milk

    Quite fascinating book would recommend all to read and enjoy. Based on mythology, spiced with humor and politics which is quite interesting. Would not be surprised if some producer takes this up and makes a fantastic movie out of it.

    Brilliant read

    Go and buy the book NOW! Yes, you heard me, buy it NOW. This is nothing like Meluha but it is everything that anyone who enjoyed Meluha would enjoy. This is something that any open minded Indian would like and anyone from around the world with a good sense of humour would like. A book worth reading….

    The author has almost created a new category - mytho-Orwellian !

    Storytelling is back....

    A delightful read that takes you back to a time when one would read books and get involved with the stories and characters. The book has all the ingredients of good story telling. Nilanjan manages to bring the quintessential story telling back into focus, which has been missing with some of the recent writers in India. Great Work!
    Characters are well etched out and woven with a well-defined storyline. The appeal lies in the fact that the writing is easy going and fluid without trying to i...

    Hillarious yet thought provoking

    I completely enjoyed reading this book,its an absolute page turner.Its a refreshing take on one of our mythology's well known stories.I loved the humor that is maintained through the book although the story is filled with deceit, greed and murders.It made me laugh and think at the same time.
