From the Back cover of the book :


Multiple intelligence agencies are tracking Mansur Haider, a god-fearing aspiring cricketer from Kashmir. His girlfriend, Aahana Yajurvedi, is trying to locate her missing mountaineering team, who vanished after a mysterious earthquake strikes Shaksgam Valley.

Investigating Mansur and the Shaksgam Valley incident is Swedish intelligence officer, Adolf Silfverskiold, whose only relationship to god consists of escorting his girlfriend to Church.
A dual China-Pakistan battle front scenario facing the Indian Home Minister, Agastya Rathore, whose ancestors carry a prehistoric secret linked to the stars. He is faced with the challenge of finding a lasting solution to the Kashmir crisis.

Which Biblical Weapon was Tested in Shaksgam Valley? Why is Mansur Haider Important? Is There a Solution to the Kashmir Crisis? Can Destiny be Controlled? Does a Cosmic Religion Exist?

My Point Of View

Baramulla Bomber is a science fiction espionage thriller which has different subjects like Quantum Physics, the Vedas, Mythology, Religion, Politics, Technology and Cricket. A trilogy which looks into the origin of universe, Vedas and the destiny of human race. Even though having many plots and characters, it's a page turner book. The story revolves in many countries like India, Pakistan, China, USA and Norway. The story line of this book is very well researched. When their are new chapter the usage of maps, the locations can be easily classified by the reader. Also the vedic mantars and bible proverbs which brings a good interesting material to the readers. Baramulla Bomber is the first book- Eka among the trilogy of the series along with the other two Dvitiya – The Consultant and the third book or Tritiya (yet to be titled) are all concerned with a question – What is the power behind the creation of Universe and human origins?

I highly recommend this book Baramulla Bomber especially if your interest is on Vedas and Mantras.

Some of the catchy lines which I liked are:-

  • If you wish for peace, prepare for war – PROLOGUE
  • Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. – Page no. 6
  • Kyon Vyarth Chinta Karte Ho? Kis Se Vyarth Darte Ho? Kaun Tumhe Maar Sakta Hai? Aatma Na Paida Hotee Hai, Na Marti Hai. – Page no. 10
  • Always compete with yourself and your own weaknesses! Magic will happen and you will emerge stronger. – Page no 30
  • Amen and Ogham are related, but there is the “Aum” from Hinduism also. Some say “Amen” is derived from “Aum”. – Page no. 57
  • Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. – Page no 110
  • Fight your Destiny, Build Hope and Make it Happen. – Page no 213
