Book review: The Indus Challenge - mythological fiction by Dr Durgadoss
This book, The Indus Challenge is a sequel of The Shackles of the Warrior – mythological fiction by Dr Durgadoss. The story line is based on a fictional character revolving around real historical occurrences.

I had read the first book, The Shackles of the Warrior in which the main character is a software guy who is shot by terrorists in the Mumbai 26/11 terrorist attack at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai. The man gets critically wounded and slips into coma. While in come, his thoughts drift back to his earlier births. The Shackles of the Warrior is the first book in the timeline of events dating back to 3300 BC (Mahabaratha era).

In his latest book "The Indus Challenge", set in the Chandragupta Maurya era around 330 BC, the author has thoughtfully implanted the protagonist as a disciple of Guru Chanakya. The protagonist looks for the unknown secrets of mankind. He embarks on a journey from the north to the south of India looking for clues and decodes them. Chankaya helps him in this pursuit.

The story line has so many real occurrences that it helps the reader acquaint with concealed historical facts. The book unlocks many unknown secrets like the Brahmasthra, Amrith and the Chidambara Rahasya.

The most interesting fact about the book is that the author has collected some rare pictures of great historical importance and incorporated them in his publication. This makes the book even more interesting to read. For those who like mythological fiction, this book is a real treat to read. The book for sure has a gluing effect on the reader.

The author Dr Durgadoss is a corporate consultant-turned-writer. Both the books in the series have been written in such a manner that they particularly interest youngsters.
