Chanakya’s Chant

This one should have been called “Sanghi Cant”, as in Sanghi Cant Write. Again, as some would argue, it is besides the point if Sanghi can or , cannot. It is all about whether Sanghi should? Never,ever. Never,ever again should this man attempt to string words together for business or for pleasure.

I’m glad I got that out of my system. I despised this book. It is an embodiment of all that is wrong with noveau Indian writing. Bad prose, a pretentious plotline and , characters, despite being drawn from the rich annals of Indian history, being cast in a mould as deep as a concise tweet.

    Totally agree with this, Karthik. I picked it up as well, just to see what the brouhaha was all about. Couldn’t finish it. Poor plot and pedestrian writing! Though we loved to read you :)

    You scare people well, Karthik. There’s a Sanghi novel sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. Now I’m not so sure. Also Saurabh, do you accept multiple reviews of a book? Who knows, I might differ.

      Urmi, yes we do accept multiple reviews. In fact we want that. Currently trying to figure out how we modify the site to do so. But you are welcome to leave it on a comment to this. And once we’ve got this sorted, we will have a better way to show multiple reviews.
