    Description

    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.

    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...

    TOP BOOKS

    There are few authors in India who write exceptionally well. Ashwin is one of those. I am a vivid reader and read almost all the books that come my way. This stands first.

    1. Chanakya Chant- Ashwin
    2. Journey Of Two Hearts- Anuj Tiwari
    3. How I braved Any Aunty - Varun Aggarwal
    4. Life is what you make it- Preeti

    Chanakya's Chant

    I 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 ...

    A refreshing book!

    Chanakya's chant is one of those books that take a lot of hard work and research to write. It's not easy to mix and match contemporary and ancient Indian politics but the author has done that superbly.

    The shifts between present and past are nicely placed and the story has a good pace. The language is good and neither is it childish nor does it go overboard.

    A refreshing change from boy runs behind the girl and gets her kind of book.

    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,...

    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 pu...

    You gotta 'push yourself' whilst reading this book......

    Aware of its success in the market, i started this book with many expectations. The first few chapters, say a 60 pages, were extremely gripping and drew a sense of curiosity and excitement in me. And honestly i say, Aswin Sanghi did a good start for this book. The remaining part of the book made me feel worse. I just continued reading this book in hope to find a corner which would satisfy me but did not find anything of that sort. I pushed myself up to 400 pages but failed to complete it. An...

    Not so great

    The book is not as great as some reviews are trying to make it out to be. Whereas the original Chanakya's story is quite gripping and very well told, its the modern Chanakya's story that is not great. Apart from the modern adversaries looking to be dumb and modern Chanakya somehow has a pill for everything, the original Chanakya's story looks more plausible. But this is smaller of the issues. The bigger one is motivation. The original Chanakya was clearly driven by the bigger idea of unified ...

    Magnificent book!

    Ashwin Sanghi's "Chanakya's Chant" is a great book. First of all considering the negative sides, this book can be a bit hard to catch up as two different stories of different ages are written together. But its wonderful to know that both stories are let to the same conclusion!

    However this book always strives as it has a modern narrative style with good vocabulary. I believe that it is a must read for all the people who are interested in politics, economics and business. Its actually worth ...
