** spoiler alert ** With Indian authors, you have a tendency to dumb it down too much like Bhagat or Amish Tripathi or make it totally unreadable - pretty much everyone else. But with this book, Sanghi brings some Hollywood style panache to Indian fiction. You might see a movie on this soon.

Woven into these pages are two stories. One, is the revenge of Chanakya and how he brings Chandragupta Maurya to be the emperor of ancient India. The other follows the journey of Gangasagar Mishra as he goes about making the next Prime Minister of India.

Sanghi too could respect the intelligence of his audience. Especially the one about Chandini's kid was irritating. That is the reason this did not get four stars. Otherwise, worth the read. Picking up the Rozabal line next.
