Chanakya’s Chant is a thrilling novel that tells its readers about a sharp parallel story between two individuals. One of these individuals is the very person who brought the scattered Indian subcontinent under the reign of Chandragupta Maurya-Chanakya. Chanakya is one of the wisest political strategists to have ever lived in the history of India. The second protagonist is Gangasagar Mishra, who is a rather insignificant Brahmin teacher, who seems to be struggling to make ends meet, but is actually a reincarnation of Chanakya himself.

The author gives you an intricately woven plot that is set in two parallel worlds, but is tied together by its two protagonists, namely Chanakya and Gangasagar. Chanakya’s tale, set in 340BC, is a tale of revenge that Chanakya seeks against the king and how he brings in Chandragupta Maurya to take over the throne. The second tale, based in modern-day India is that of Gangasagar grooming a young girl from Kanpur, to eventually become the prime minister of India.

Will Chanakya’s ingenious ways bring about a drastic turn in the events of the nation? This captivating book answers just that, through its exploration of Chanakya’s ingenious and calculated moves that have altered the course of events in the past.

Chanakya’s Chant has been published by Westland Limited, in the year 2012 and is available in paperback.
