Description

In this thriller novel involving a right wing Hindu party and an imminent terror attack by Islamists, a Mughal Scholar stumbles across a conspiracy to fake the history of the Taj Mahal, leading to its destruction.

Summary of the Book

Mehrunisa Khosa discovers the murder of a supervisor of the Taj Mahal, and an altered Quranic inscription to prove that the Taj was a Hindu monument. The discovery could prove disastrous, for although the theory had been abound for a long time, proving it could spark a controversy as strong as the Ayodhya conflict. In the labyrinths under the monument, Mehrunisa discovers plots that involve the machinations of a communal Hindu party and Islamic terrorists primed to attack the nation yet again.

The Other Taj

...you know mention Taj, A Conspiracy; and people start thinking of the City By The Sea. Sodhi-Someshwar steers us gently to that other structure which has seen more than its share of tragedy,mystery,dreams.
If a book has you parceling off your kid for the day "which is good for your darling, you will have soo much fun", playing hookey from your own commitments, and then plonking that kid on the commode when he returns (and conveniently "forgetting" him so you can race through its final pag...

Gripping presentation, based on thorough research! Very much Dan Brown-esque...

First of all, hats off to Manreet Sodhi for such a wonderful, fast-paced book! I read in one sitting on a Sunday, and it was a day well spent!
The story starts at break-neck speed with the female protagonist Mehrunisa Khosa stumbling upon a very unexpected scene right in the heart of the Taj. What follows is sheer research and solid writing skills, as Mehrunisa along with CBI investigator R. P. Singh set out unfolding the mystery. What is the Taj conspiracy? Who has plotted it? Is this extern...

Worthy of many readings...

When I got this book I was actually expecting a bit of history & drama. I did get that but with an amazing touch of suspense & fast-paced action. I specially loved the plot as it involved a lady protagonist Mehrunisa Khosa, who had every bit the charm of a sophisticated Mughal scholar & the wit and sharpness to go with it.The characters are wonderfully developed & this book is definitely a page turner. the historical facts are also dealt with in a very interesting way, leaving the reader curi...

Diving into Mystery

The book is about events revolving around Taj. The author has done her research and this is clearly seen in the authority of her writing. Aruguments and counter arguments gives you a neutral perspective about Taj. She takes on many theories about taj and throw light on the subject. Once you read the book, the reader is left with few thoughts and theories, with no conclusion. No conlusion does not mean no ending, but a conclusion about the taj itself. I'm sure that you will love this book espe...

All in all a very good book to read!

Know your Taj

One of the wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal often defines India. Yet, there is so little we know about it. We know about the love story, yes, but there is so much more! Manreet Sodhi Someshwar has successfully brought the Taj to life. This is a book to love. There is history, there is mystery and lots more in between. Each character is strong and lively. The protagonist, is aptly chosen and she leads the story beautifully to a climax. The events are connected so wittily that one must compl...

I devoured The Taj Conspiracy in less than a day. A fun fast read with intriguing information on Taj Mahal and a heroine I absolutely loved! Mehrunisa is totally brilliant - never a dull moment wit her - and has me convinced that history is NOT boring. I can't wait to read the next book in the trilogy!

A Damp Squib of an amateurish attempt...

If you have not experienced disappointment lately, this book is for you !! Sheer disappointment will hit you hard when you finish reading it, and think backwards on the story line.
It begins with a Da-Vinci-Code inspired death scene of a man - Aroon Toor, who is the Supervisor at the Taj Mahal. By the end it is revealed that the corpse was actually the Director of ASI, Raj Bhushan; while the young Supervisor thereafter merrily masquerades as the Director himself, with the help of a false be...
