A study for literature students

In the name of God is a fascinating thriller with twists and turns. An ideal plot for a new generation Bollywood movie. The book shot into limelight and became a national bestseller. Not because it was a book about bank scams. But because the main protagonist of the book was a diamond merchant named Nirav Choksi, the duo of the now infamous PNB bank scam. This despite the author's steadfast refusal to bask under the glow of the hottest breaking news of the day.

Tome that caters to intellect & faith

I often speculate if the progenitors of the sacred Rig Veda ever had the faintest idea of the word Hindu. When the venerated sages of the many mandalas that spawned this great compendium of lofty intellectual thought which also blends holy practice and earthy philosophy they were clear about one belief; worship of the Creator. The Rig Veda exhorts the individual to focus on the life here as opposed to the hereafter. It then permits or provides ways and means to connect with the Creator according to ones predilections and needs. Thus, one of the opening richa's of the Rig Veda categorically states: Aano bhadra krtavo yantu vishwatah (1.89.1 Rigveda), which in translation best reads as 'Let noble thoughts come to us from every direction'.
