Last Diwali I started taking review request in Hindi language but I was not getting up to the mark Book in Hindi. I have review 3-4 books ins last 5 months but Samar Siddha was the only book in Hindi which has provided enough fuel to my reader's engine. The books I read till now were lacking interest portion or seriousness portion. Samar Siddha was able to touch them. And I am happy with the reading experience.
"Love, betrayal, sword battles, supernatural rituals and enchanting beauty of the courtesans Vaishali and Amodini!"Samarsiddha is a story of complex social dynamics in the land of enigmatic India in 8th century BC. In a patriarchal society ruled by the king and his men, a woman, exploited and shattered, rises from the ground to counter not only the men and the society but also the underlying ailing ideology. Read how she devoted her life to spiritual practices to gain divine powers to counter the mighty kingdoms. Find out how her razor sharp goal of revenge carries her from being a beautiful Brahmin girl to a Chandaal warrior with bloodthirsty soul.
I like the way the author has maintained pace, interest & storyline. I didn't feel bored even for a minute while reading. Some of the lines were worth quoting for. The author has used burning issue of ancient and modern India and showed a wonderful drama around the same. Author has maintained tempo throughout the story. I personally liked the character of Shatvari & Neel.
