Ace Author Ashwin Sanghi’s The Krishna Key perfectly blends fiction and history
Ashwin Sanghi – The name in the Indian popular literature needs no introduction. The 53-year-old author knows well how to combine mythology and history with fiction. His books are quite long, but the crisp chapters make them a gripping read.
Sanghi has authored seven books in the Bharat series (The Rozabal Line, Chanakya’s Chant, The Sialkot Saga, The Vault of the Vishnu, Keepers of the Kalachakra, The Magicians of Mazda), and The Krishna Key remains one of the most-liked books among them.
The author has laboured a niche for himself in the last few years. Famous for his research skills, Sanghi merged the story of Lord Krishna with present-day fiction that revolves around a serial killer in The Krishna Key.
In India, it is a common myth that the country has no past legacy to take pride in, whereas the author spreads the real history, the genuine legacy through the mythology rooted in India. In the book, the readers get a chance to gain wisdom about the historical background of the Puranic times.
The Krishna Key also picks up the history of the river Saraswati. This book has a lot of knowledge to provide as well as a thriller story running with it. The tremendous research work by the author can be seen through the bibliography given at the end of the book. A book like The Krishna Key helps to know about India’s history and mythology better than anything.
