No life-altering philosophies. No depressing stories. No war crimes or injured puppy pictures. This is where you come at the end of a long day to smile and relax. So sit back, order a refreshing drink and share a laugh with me, your bartender for the evening.
And always remember that age-old, fluorescent green rule of life : An appletini a day keeps the doctor away.

Book review : The Krishna Key by Ashwin Sanghi

For those who are fans of Indian fiction, the name Ashwin Sanghi needs no introduction. In a country that's lost in a hundred variations of chick-literature and college romances since the start of this decade, his works stand out for being genuinely well-researched thrillers combining fact and fiction. He has been often described by readers as 'the Indian Dan Brown' which should be high praise... but I'll come to that point later.

Overview :

"Five thousand years ago, there came to earth a magical being called Krishna, who brought about innumerable miracles for the good of mankind. Humanity despaired of its fate if the Blue God were to die but was reassured that he would return in a fresh avatar when needed in the eventual Dark Age—the Kaliyug.
In modern times, a poor little rich boy grows up believing that he is that final avatar. Only, he is a serial killer.
