The Krishna Key

All of us, at some point of time, must have wondered whether God exists or not. We have heard thousand tales about him, know him by thousand names and take his name at least thousand times. Ashwin Sanghi’s latest book ‘The Krishna Key’ deals with the same question and it is apparent that the author has exhaustively researched on Indian Mythology and its origin. The facts about Krishna, Shiva and Indian mythology itself that he has brought up in the book had my undivided interest; however, the plot was clichéd, at least to those who have read Dan Brown and know Robert Langdon too well. Not just Ravi Mohan Saini’s love for history and mythology but the symbols that Tarak Vakil leaves on his victims’ bodies point towards Robert Langdon and his adventures.
