ABOUT THE BOOK:
Can he live up to the promise he made to his wife? The young Indian pursued his education in journalism from Moscow and went to Afghanistan for his Persian Love. He was offered to be engaged as an illegal spy, but for good reasons by his Russian Professor. It all seemed normal and well-intentioned, till he realized everything he did was part of a larger conspiracy. The covert operations by the Soviet intelligentsia, uprising in Afghanistan and finally war came crashing down upon him and his family. Suffering betrayals, he took upon himself to fight the war. What follows is the hunt for the perpetrators, survival in torrid conditions and unfolding of the events that took away everything from him. Will he succeed in getting it all back?
The cover of the book is very appealing and perfectly suits the title and blurb. KABIRA is totally out of the box. It is the story of love and war. Kabira can be easily termed a “Best Seller” for its beautiful yet strong story. Being a debut author, Arvind’s story is just mind blowing. Arvind has beautifully written this love saga and has smartly played with his words. On reading KABIRA you will get the real feeling of being in a war zone. The blood drains, dead souls will enlighten the soldier in you. On the other hand, you feel the love in the air. The combination of love and war is something which makes KABIRA something new and interesting.
The characters were entertaining and the idea of beginning the chapters with Sanskrit doshas was amazing.
Will they succeed in being together once again? Will destiny favor both of them this time? To unfold the mysteries read the book. It is a MUST READ!
