16-year-old Vishnu Shastri finds himself pulled into a parallel world called Prithvi, which is similar to Earth with a different timeline. There is no sign of religion or science there, but he discovers fantastic astras (or Mahabharat style missiles) that are virtual supernukes and can control the weather and all of Prithvi’s elements and unleash untold destruction.

Vishnu meets an ageless astomi called Guru, a mysterious astra expert, who throws up more questions than answers. He has to escape the beautiful, evil and demented Shakti, Prithvi’s foremost assassin who is out to get him. Then there’s Mahamaharaj Duryodhan, a megalomaniac king bent on taking over the world and forcing a destructive World War, the planet’s eighth, but potentially the most dangerous. But Vishnu is constantly nagged with the doubt of who pulled him from Earth in the first place and for what purpose?

Beautifully written, against the back drop of Mahabharata. I liked the way the author drew parallels from two different times like past and present for developing Vishnu’s character. His character is complex yet relatable. New but old.

Bollywood is not all happy romance, song and dance. There is a dark side to it and there are many reasons why it doesn’t stand up to the rest of the cinema in the world, especially with regards to its content. From columns like How Amitabh Bachchan ruined Bollywood for good to Why Salman Khan is our most pathetic superstar to 5 ways how Bollywood promotes misogyny are all featured here…

Big Tech Global Grandmasters of PowerThe world has seen Big Finance, Big Oil and Big Retail in the past. They have been powerful, ruling and molding the world. But nothing comes close to the power of #BigTech. Silicon Valley is probably the most powerful non-Government in history, with resources from everything from money to political power to influence to data of all kinds.
