An Interview with Ashwin Sanghi – Author of “Krishna Key”

Commercial fiction is one route. And also why is that Krishna himself tells about Radha, him being a butter thief and cowherd but the author contradicts himself later in the story saying Radha is a fictional character brought by 12th century poet Jayadeva in poem Geeta Govinda and his cowherd and and butter thief character was established by villagers ashain attract audience?!

But The Krishna Key has its roots in the history of not just ancient Indiansbut the people from adjacent civilizations as well. Notify sangi of new posts via email.

Writing is plain and lucid. Share your thoughts with other customers. I couldn’t go on I must xshwin that I picked up this book despite reading the reviews by other readers on Good Reads. Since when did Indians stop using the metric system?? First of all, you not only learn so much about Indian literature but the Mahabharata and the whole Krishna legend has been easily explained in here. Police officer comes and arrests – simple.

The only reason I kept reading till the end was because the oodles of historical data and myths made it engrossing enough for me. These hiccups do not take away from the inherent attraction of the novel, though. Surely a must read for mythological fiction lovers. So that bit didn’t work for me. Speaking of insulting the reader’s intelligence, Sanghi also has a habit of re-iterating key passages of the book during a big reveal. All the four perspectives are interesting and give clues to find Krishna Key.


Ashwin Sanghi’s The Krishna Key to be adapted by Eros as movie, web series

Ashwin Sanghi’s research is good, but the use of plots and characters seems like the usual stuff and surprisingly the Rozaball Line and Krishna Key tends to feel like Dan Brown’s book. I was so looking forward to read it and when i read it turned out to be a mojor disappointment! After a point, i found it a bit tiring.

Currently reading his Chanakya Chant. I always wanted to be widely read. I enjoyed reading all about Lord Krishna, as I did not know much apart from the Mahabharata and the battle of Kurukshetra. My favorite conspiracy theory from the lot has to be that Vedic era symbols are a part of most modern religions. The DaVinci code was based on one fact, one solitary symbolist who knew the facts, and some running about.

When bodies start dropping around him, Professor Saini is one of the main suspects, while little do authorities realise that Professor Saini is one of the targets too. I earnestly hope that this is not the case. Pages to import images to Wikidata. Half the time, the characters say things that are so unbelievable, that even suspension of disbelief doesn’t quite work here. The editing is careless, to say the least. This is clearly an attempt at making the novel more international, since audiences today are fed an overdose of Hollywood movies “you have the right to remain silent”, etc Give us a gist of the scene and settings, and leave the rest to our imagination.

For instance a character ‘Taarak’, who is supposedly well trained on Indian history, philosophy etc etc. Dec 05, Neeleisch G rated it really liked it. The way he takes symbolism from one meaning to a completely different monkey is both hilarious and absurd. This style of presentation is alien and made-up.

The Key Seems Lost!! From this one statement, it is SO OBVIOUS that Sanghi has written this book keeping probably non-existent American readers in mind, while the truth is that almost all of his readers will be Indians because, c’mon, which American in his right mind will want to read a Da Vinci Code rip-off?


Overall, I found it an interesting novel. After you have crossed the junction, you can always speculate regarding which alternative route you could have taken but it is futile. The author have taken that email and weaved the climax of this book around that email. When I get home from work, I am relieved to retire to my study and get lost in my fictional world of fantasy, mythology, history and conspiracy.

Anyhow, whichever book it was, Ashwin Sanghi is hugely inspired by Dan Brown, if I may say so, and I say it with all the good things in mind. Return to Book Page. Yes, we can clearly see many resemblances both the novels have. And there is a reason for that – It is Good!

Clearly a lot of research went into it and it has some compelling moments I was going to give up after the first chapter but decided to give it a bit krishan of my timebut the editor should have caught a lot of what went wrong here. Grab a classic and enjoy it. Various mini characters historians and scientists, mainly have their share too in providing the historical and mysterious flavour to the story.

But I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep… I have always loved writing about characters that have shades of grey. So no point in talking more on it. I always wshwin the hope that there will keyy readers who will use the novel as a starting point before embarking on research of their own.
