Imagine a conversation between the legendary Stephen Hawking and the ex CIA director John Brennan and Albert Einstein. Now imagine Brennan’s surprise when he finds out there is an agency that’s even more secretive than the CIA and he is caught unaware. This is how SS Raw’s ‘𝑬𝒊𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒊𝒏 𝑲𝒂 𝑨𝒏𝒌𝒂𝒉𝒂 𝑺𝒊𝒅𝒅𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒕’ begins.
“मैं युद्धों के बारे में तुमसे ज़्यादा जानकारी रखता हूं, हॉकिंग, आखिर मैं इस दुनिया की सबसे बड़ी खुफिया एजेंसी का डायरेक्टर हूं। मैं पूरा संसार संभालता हूं।” ब्रेनन ने अकड़ते हुए कहा।
“और मैं पूरा ब्रह्मांड।” हॉकिंग बोले।
‘𝑬𝒊𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒊𝒏 𝑲𝒂 𝑨𝒏𝒌𝒂𝒉𝒂 𝑺𝒊𝒅𝒅𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒕‘ is a book that touches several topics ranging from time travel to a world war and how if the progress of science is a boon or a bane. As I stated how the book begins, there is more to it. As it progresses Brennan learns that American President Barack Obama and Indian PM, Modi is also associated with the secretive agency he knew nothing about and learns many secrets. The book is written in a suspenseful way to keep the readers intrigued.
The narrative style is simple yet interesting and the dialogues are well thought of and placed interestingly throughout the novel. The book is written in Hindi and I have hardly read the language in the last 1.5 years so it took me more time than usual to complete it. However, the language is not flowery and complicated so it was easy to comprehend.
If you are looking for a suspenseful thriller yet a knowledgeable book, pick up ‘𝑬𝒊𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒊𝒏 𝑲𝒂 𝑨𝒏𝒌𝒂𝒉𝒂 𝑺𝒊𝒅𝒅𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒕’! You won’t regret it.
Thanks to SS Raw for the ARC.
