    Description

    The Islamic State has spread its tentacles in India, penetrating stealthily into the academia, media and politics. The mastermind is Shamsur Ali, a physicist from Bangladesh. To destabilize India, he wants to create a sort of apocalypse, which the 21-year-old Kubha must prevent at any cost, come what may.
    In a brazen attempt at legitimizing the demolition of one of the most prominent historical structures in India, someone - unbelievably, it could be both Hiranyagarbha Bharata, a radical Hindu outfit, and the Islamic State - resorts to a big deceit. Afsar Fareedi, a linguistic paleontologist, catches the fraud. In the melee, there are three gruesome murders, including that of her father, perhaps to eliminate all traces of a carpet which, Afsar discovers, has a lot hidden in its mysterious motifs. At the centre of all this is a verse composed by the maverick mathematician, Aryabhata, some 1,500 years ago.

    Very balanced narrative, neither left nor right

    Very balanced narrative, neither left nor right

    The Aryabhata Clan is an example of how a narrative doesn’t have to be either leftist or rightist.
    The lacuna in recording our own history over the years is not that big a problem, in seeking the truth, as compared to the recent narratives, since the independence, which were one-sidedly dominated by the leftist ideology for many years and then bombarded with rightist counter narratives more recently. In the melee, the scattered truth, which som...

    All about the futility of radicalism based on religion

    All about the futility of radicalism based on religion

    The essence of the book is perhaps to show the futility of radicalism based on religion or any other identity. When intolerance and religion based fanaticism has become a global problem, impacting everyone, the author tries to show the contrasting aspect of "Good" and "Bad" religion and how people could be manipulated to serve the interests of only a few devil minds.

    The trigger for this book was perhaps the incidents in Iraq & Syria wh...

    Great Novel

    Great novel, but certain troubling aspects

    It’s a fantastic novel. The depth and vastness of the subjects the author has covered is simply mind blowing. He has handled many complex threads aptly, not generally faltering, in most places. The suspense, the building of the story, the fast-paced narrative, everything worked for me wonderfully. I found the sections in which Kubha is trying to escape from the hasht bihisht very well written and convincing – perhaps that was the best part of the no...

    Super!

    Fantastic suspense and deft handling of complex topics

    Overall, the characterization is generally good, there are many strong characters that we identify with in the novel, including Kubha, Parush, Afsar, Kratu. The author does an excellent job of building continuity from the earlier novels in terms of family, ancestry, relationships.
    Perhaps a little more effort can be made to make the characters even more distinct. Shamsur seems caricatured and one dimensional at times. The characters do...

    Fabulous!

    Remarkable hold over a big canvas, in terms of time, place, characters
    It was a great experience reading this novel, which is quite an impressive feat. I can see how Sudipto’s writing, and his mastery of this particular genre, have evolved immensely since his first novel. It’s doubtless he has worked very hard. This is an ambitious project and his knowledge is quite phenomenal.
    The strongest aspect of the novel is the way in which, drawing on his interest and broad canvas of knowledge, he b...

    Authentic retelling of history

    Authentic retelling of history

    The author makes a humble but sincere attempt at retelling history as authentically as possible, without being driven by any agenda, either the leftist or rightist. The author has very boldly and nakedly told many things that many other, especially the so called liberal western media, intelligentsia and academia, would never have the guts to even accept – the one being the spread of the Islamic terrorism. There’s a tendency at many fronts to deny the role of t...

    Amazing story of the unusual “carriers” of history

    Amazing story of the unusual “carriers” of history

    History has unique ways of preserving itself, even if it’s not chronicled. The carpet motifs have preserved history for many millennia, unknown to anyone. Indians have been traditionally bad chroniclers of history – the reason why not much can be vouched for about India’s ancient history. But humanity finds their own unique ways to keep their mark on the soil they had trod many many years ago. A real seeker would leave no stone unturned to ...

    Fabulous! A very aggressive novel

    A very aggressive novel

    It’s a fantastic read. The suspense builds up from the very beginning. With the number of threads running parallelly all along the narrative, and the deft handling of the complex disciplines like linguistics, archaeology, palaeography, epigraphy, mathematics, music etc, it’s no doubt one of the most aggressive novels I’ve read in the recent past. The amount of effort that has been put in presenting facts and figures authentically is indeed a commendable task. I would ...

    Ambitious piece of fiction

    Ambitious piece of fiction

    The novel, like its prequel The Ekkos Clan, is designed a lot like Da Vinci Code. Codes, characters, and mysteries are set in a labyrinthine pattern, sometimes aided by pictures.
    Spanning across the civilizational backdrops of India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, this is an ambitious piece of fiction, especially because it deals with rapidly spreading terrorism among educated youth in the subcontinent. In the light of recent terror attacks in Bangladesh whe...
