An excerpt from my book, Unravelling, releasing soon.
“Who are you?”
“Are you sure you are Aadit?”
“What are you doing?”
I am sitting here in silence; breathing, meditating.
“Are you sure You are the one breathing?”
Yes I am.
“Is your breath under your control – are you initiating it, stopping it, making sure it’s reaching where it needs to?”
No. I don’t control it.
“So the breath comes and goes without you doing anything about it”
“Are the functions of most of your organs – heart, kidney, brain, liver and others under your control?”
“Can you call your body yours if you don’t even have control over its organs and parts?”
“What is under your control: if not your breath, not your organs, not even the body that you call yours?”
My thoughts and actions.
“Are your thoughts and actions a part of your body?”
No. They are a part of Me.
“Does that mean You are different from your body?”
“Are the results of your thoughts and actions under your control?”
“Is anything under your control?”
“Who are you then when nothing is in your control?”
A doer. An observer.
Some interesting reviews of “my” thriller book Operation Jai Mata Di 😉
“If you have seen the movie “A Wednesday”, this is Wednesday, Thursday n Friday…”
“Op JMD is one of the most engrossing books that I have read in recent times. It is relevant and believable. Fast paced, fun read. The book keeps you guessing till the surprising end. A must read for anyone interested in reading a thriller. Overall an enjoyable read, a nail biting thriller, I will give this 4/5… ”
“The salient point about this book is the superb plot set in contemporary Indian political scene. The book gets off to a slow start but then picks up pace and ends with a “kahani mein twist” climax – much like our bollywood thrillers. As mentioned by other reviewers the characters are a bit weak but it doesn’t really matter as its a short book. You continue to read through due to the plot and the associated suspense element where the book does’t disappointment at all”
“After going through the title, cover image and synopsis, this book appears like a typical hostage saga with the only difference being the number of hostages. But thankfully, this is just the tip of the iceberg. The book in totality is a motivating and inspiring political drama providing vision and hope amidst complete apathy by the political class…”
“Before starting on this book, I would like to set the context here. I had just come out of reading a very serious fiction that had multitudes of complexity embedded. Was very skeptical at the beginning on my reading choice when i picked up Operation Jai Mata di primarily because it would be in complete contrast to my previous book. But buoy! wasn’t I in for a surprise when I started it! It was not only a welcome change but the beginning was as hair raising as any best in class thrillers. The whole book took me on a mission along with the characters in the book right from the word go. It kept me on my toes and turned out to be a page turner…”
