Blurb:

Have you ever met a pretty girl in a suspicious condition with blood stained hands lying in a hotel room where you are staying in?
Can a love story see its acceptance in the Indian society when the boy is from slums and the girl is born in a rich family?
How many of you have met those girls who were molested by their known ones when they had not even crossed the age of 14? Isn’t forced and unwilling sex after marriage similar to a rape?
Whether the prayers offered in love strong enough to bring back someone’s lost beloved from PoK?
How many of you know a person whose deeds are completely ideal, something which only a God can do?
Whether religion, caste or community should really be a parameter in deciding the hierarchy and dominance of people living in this world?
God and his girl-friend is a mercurial story about two youngsters, from entirely different backgrounds who strive hard against their comfort to live with their passion. A boy from the slums and a girl from a rich lavishing family set out on an embarking journey to touch the moon. This takes them through many tests, eventually tying them up in love, followed by an unforgettable service to the nation as true stalwart patriots.

About the story:

There are only few times when I get to read a book that I can actually relate to. This was one of them. No, I am not a singer or in love with a boy from a different caste or society but I felt like I knew almost every person in the book. I could relate to the society, I could relate to the thinking, I could relate to the feeling of safety, happiness, fear or love. There was just so much in this novel, in this love story, that one would find addicting.

It had passion, it had patriotism and above all, it had love. “All’s well that ends well”… While reading this story…or well, editing it, I actually asked the author ‘Priyank Aryan’ many times if the end is good and he was like, “You will see.” I was angry. The guy had just given me 10 chapters of the book and I knew that at least 10 were still left. With every page, a new hope arose, a new feeling came and with each new chapter, something new happened in the story which was exciting and frightening at the same time. Finally, I received the next 10 chapters and I loved them. They just completed the story. They felt full, nothing was missing.

As an Editor, I enjoyed many things that normal people could not, like getting to read the first draft, the second and final one. While I was reading, the author himself didn’t tell me much about what would happen next in the story but he shared some of his thoughts on Ashfaque and Jessica. Finally, I can just tell you that the story is not just about love, it is about several other things which lay somewhere hidden in our society, like Child molestation, rape, racism, etc. I liked that the author raised many points in this book which normally some authors would be hesitant to write about. I liked that there was suspense throughout the story.

I will completely recommend this novel to you guys, its worth the six hours you would normally give to a movie that has arguably no meaning. This novel is entertaining, emotional and above all, a reflection to some darkest secrets that some of us keep in our souls till death.

Rating: *****

I would give it a five star, not because I edited it, or read it around ten times but because I know that even the eleventh read of this story would be as thrilling as the first one was.

Many years ago, an extraordinary cripple disappeared from a remote village, ending a time of terror. Not many knew that he gave his life to confine a malevolence, the Sutram, to its subterranean womb or that in doing so, he had prevented the apocalypse. 

Deep beneath the Earth the evil has lurked, fraying its shackles and plotting its escape, all the while gathering immeasurable power. Until now. 

When ace lawyer, Raghuram Surya, received an order of requisition from the Government of India for his ancestral castle, he was unaware of the Sutram beneath it or his own legacy. 

He will have to choose between the world’s end or his own.

Before I start with the review of the book, I will share a quote written by the famous author

              
“The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.” – Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms.

Two kingdoms, Chaturanga and Sarprakt, separated by a mystic mountain range are at war with each other since ages. Chaturanga, ruled by King Viratha, is soon bestowed with a dynamic heir, and the whole kingdom is drowned in rituals and festivity. On the other side, Sarprakt is executing a cruel conspiracy. King Viratha, crippled by the conspiracy, urges the mysterious man of the mountain to devise a method to recreate the conspiracy and that gave birth to ‘The Game of Chess’.

My paperback

**** 
Serial killings shock the nation as the police are rendered clueless. The killer leaves behind a trail of chess pieces with a strange message. Random people are murdered. Connoisseurs of different fields – History, Chess and the Security forces – have united as the next intended victim is the most powerful person of the country. How is Chess involved in the whole scenario? How will they find a man who died 4000 years ago? Can a person defy the laws of nature? Does history really repeat itself? Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it
