    A Dream Debut!

    When you talk about the new age authors in India, especially the Engg - MBA clan, you have that one name - you know who!
    R Sreeram is a welcome break. Military coup, two contrasting points of view, gripping tale, excellent cover and the length which is at the just optimum level.

    This debut by Sreeram assures that he is not getting back to a boring corporate job and we won't let him.

    An author to look out for

    I liked the book, especially the author's writing style and his control over the langugage.
    The idea of the book intially sounded like an unlikely thing to happen in india, but later intrigued by this concept i did some own personal research on this topic.

    And i must admit the usage of facts and moulding it in to a fast paced plot is comendable.

    I am eagerly waiting for the sequel.

    Quite good!

    Fast-paced and interesting. Definitely worth a read. The plot is quite well thought out and keeps you immersed right till the end. I don't think there are many good political thrillers coming out of India.

    A great debut from a promising new writer

    My first thought when I finished reading Kalyug was: this can't be the work of a first-time writer!

    R. Sreeram's language is very good, and yet he ensures that he doesn't send readers scrambling for their dictionary apps. The unraveling of the plot, the build-up of tension, the characterization, the action sequences, have all been handled with finesse. The pace is pretty good, and once you get hooked on, it's a nice ride till the end.

    I recommend Kalyug to everyone and hope to see more ...

    It could happen one of these days...

    Imagine a situation where a bloodless coup disrupts democracy in India and replaces the same with a dictatorship in the guise of President's Rule. The author imagines this relatively dystopian near future in India where corruption and political debauchery reaches levels so high that there is no other choice than the one mentioned above. What happens thereof forms the rest of the narrative of this well written book.

    KALYUG - A review
    How about a benevolent dictatorship in India? Or is that an oxymoron? The fast paced page turner by Selvam, sorry, R Sreeram, Kalyug, published by Westland Ltd, tackles this question.
    The story is set in current day India, where an author called Selvam has written just such a book, the story of a coup in current day India, thus giving rise to controversy, notoriety, and political vendetta. Wonder if this is wishful thinking by the author? Anyway, the story develops two ye...

    Good fiction

    If you ask me what is fiction.

    I would say fiction is a piece of literature in which the author picks up a plots which could be a folklore, a myth or a real incident. Now to this plots, he adds many layers of innovative possibilities (based on his/her imagination) to make a story out of it.

    An awesome fiction is that which blow out your mind with brilliant mosaic of the possibilities composing an amazing story to read and tell.

    But this novel is not an awesome fiction but a good one.It...

    Desi Political Thriller : More Realistic than Fictious

    This books works on so many levels.
    1. Fast paced
    2. Well Written

Using Emergency in India as a way to fight corruption induced by Corporate. The things that are day dreamed by a common man to save the na...

    Ignore the name and the book is wonderful.

    What a commendable job R Sreeram has done in his maiden book Kalyug. A gripping tale; with a wonderful start that sets the tone of the book at the very beginning. It just won’t allow keeping it down, and if you somehow did manage to keep it down for a while, it’ll come and haunt you to finish reading it. That’s what happened with me at least. And personally I believe that’s what a thriller should do to you.
    The plot is perfect and is well written. The way every character has been portrayed, ...
