Baramulla Bomber by Clark Prasad: a review

The Svastik Trilogy- Eka by Clark Prasad is one book I loved by the first look at its cover. The eyes on the cover can attract any reader to itself and can keep any reader glued to it.

On the back cover- An Ancient weapon from the Vedas and Bible Once Hunted by the Nazis Powered by the Sound of the Universe reborn with the help of Quantum Physic Going to be Unleashed onto the world and Kashmir Hold it’s Secret. The only way- Multiple intelligence agencies are tracking Mansur Haider, a god-fearing aspiring cricketer from Kashmir. His girlfriend, Aahana Yajurvedi, is trying to locate her missing mountaineering team, which vanished after a mysterious earthquake struck Shaksgam valley. Investigating Mansur and the Shaksgam valley incident is Swedish intelligence officer, Adolf Silfverskiold, whose only relationship to god consists of escorting his girlfriend to Church. To save the world- A dual China-Pakistan battlefront Scenario facing the Indian Home Minister, Agastya Rathore, whose ancestors carry a prehistoric secret linked to the stars. He is faced with the challenge of finding a lasting solution to the Kashmir crisis. Is to challenge one’s faith- Which Biblical Weapon was Tested in Shaksgam valley? Why is Mansur Haider Importent? Is there a solution to the Kashmir crisis? Can Destiny be controlled? Does a Cosmic Religion Exist?

The book Baramulla Bomber by Clark Prasad is an interesting fiction where Science marries history and Religion, and the results could be devastating. The story is a journey of an ancient secret that travels from the age of Vedas, Bible to the reign of Nazis and is now all set to create a new terror.

The book is an interesting read for the science fiction lovers. However, the uniqueness in narration may attract readers of other genres as well. The events take place in various locations, yet the author manages to connect them aptly so that they can give a good climax and a great ending to the story.

A story that is more than just a science or a thriller and surprises its reader’s page after page. Illustrations and the facts or fiction page makes it a more interesting read. It gave me goosebumps while reading just the fact that it needed to be a bit more compact. I would love to give it 4 out of 5.
