    How is Krishna Key?

    Happy reading


    1. It starts with loads of promise but it grows like a cheap version of Da Vinci code and ends without meaningful purpose. However, good effort by the author

    Awesome … never trust a man who has only read one book. A good challenge indeed. Before kids, I used to read 1-3 books a week. Now I am reading bed time stories for the boys. Just as well, when you have been blessed to be be a reader it might be good to take some time out and pass on the passion for books to the next generation. I hope you can inspire a lot of people!


    1. I remember in my prime, I have read more than 100 books a year. Reading stories to the kids must be one of the best part of parenting I guess. With the parents like you, the next generation is in safe hands .
      Happy Reading

    Lot of books ­čÖé You inspire me to read more! The Oath of the Vayuputras was not upto my expections…


    1. Well, its not exactly lots of books.
      Yes Oath of the Vayuputras could have been better but you have to read it if you have read the Part I and Part II of Shiva Trilogy


  4. good one… to accept challenge and finish it is always good… a good collection of books… i used to read too many books when I was in my Engineering days. Now after moving into management studies, I don’t get the time to read and my interest has shifted from Fiction to Non Fiction.


    1. I understand. My reading has come down so much because of work. Thats why I took this challenge so that it keeps me motivated. Over the years, I have also seen shift in my interest, I can understand your transformation from fiction to non-fiction.
