I am touched by your praise and affection Siddhi. It is the love that I receive from my readers that keeps me pumped up to turn out more stuff. As regards your question between fact and fiction, you should always read my work as fiction entirely. However, if the topic interests you enough you should explore the research links at the back so as to make up your own mind about what constitutes fact and what constitutes fiction. :)

Dear Aparna. Thanks for your kind comments. I am grateful for your appreciation and input. Yes, a few typos did creep into the 1st edition of The Krishna Key but I am happy that these have since been sorted out. My apologies though. Best wishes. Ashwin.

Siddhi Palande sir u r THE INDIAN DAN BROWN...but more engaging,entertaining than he is! I am absolutely in love with ur book Krishna Key!! There are a few mistakes which surely be edited in the next edition but the story is oh so evolving and engaging!! To tell u abt ur book or to review it also will be like understating it !!! its simply too good!! And millions are reading the book, i hv been seeing it in the hands of almost every other lady travelling in the mumbai local totally engaged in ur book .... super sir ....wish to interview u some day !! simply too good !


Siddhi Palande sir would like to know how much of the statistical mentions in the book THE KRISHNA KEY are true and how much of it is fiction?
how much research did you have to do to come up with such a brilliant stuff?
please reply.
awaiting your response.
warm regards


Saurabh Hi Sir,
Read your latest book, The Krishna Key few days back.. great story and great concept ... I must say lot of research was done for the book.
Really liked the way mythology was connected with modern science.. this made me finish Chanakya chants as well .. equally well written/researched book. Now reading Rozabal line...


Aparna The blurb of The Krishna Key made me buy all your books... I finished The Krishna Key and now reading The Rozabal Line, must say, hats-off to the amount of research you put into each of your books! One crib though, Krishna Key seems to be hastily put together...at some places the names of characters have been interchanged (Priya to Radhika), there are some typos... These shouldn't have happened, brings down the experience somehow! Hopefully you'll get them all set right in the next edition :)

Thanks for that very kind comment Arpita. I am truly blessed to have readers like you who are so very generous in their praise. Many thanks :)


Arpita Karkare You are a really gifted writer! There are so many passages and sentences in your book that are so well written that I have read them aloud to different family members. And your research and methods of weaving together fact and fiction are really commendable. I totally look forward to your new release.. All the very best for your endeavours.
