Recent Book Reading: THE KRISHNA KEY by Ashwin Sanghi
The story talks about a professor who gets tangled up in a murder mystery of his own childhood friend. Even though he is innocent, still he is the prime suspect. It showcases the The combination of Krishna’s Life and present-day time has been pot rayed in an amazing manner. The writer has an in-depth knowledge about Mahabharata, History of Ancient India, Kalki Puran and many more. A must read for all the history lovers like me.
During train journeys, I love carrying books. On my way to Kolkata, I started with The Krishna Key of Ashwin Sanghi. These kinda books I started reading since the time I got engaged with Ancient History. Indian history I have always loved especially the ancient time which consists of Vedas, Upanishads, Purans, Gita, etc. Mahabharata has been mine all time favorite, the Gita, the character of Karna, what a character!
People usually get confused and assume that Gita is a religious text, it is absolutely not! Gita is a way of life, a way of living, a way of understanding different characters which create the entire universe. This topic I have loved and loved debating about. This topic discussion helps me make others understand how wrong they are. Being an Indian, they don’t consider their own history to be important, rather they try to adopt the West, illogical isn’t it? A Chinese or Japanese will never leave their history and culture behind, neither will a Russian nor a Swedish, but an Indian always kick their history out of their life. Sad, very sad! I am so happy I decided to take up History rather than same old Mechanical Engg!
