Bestselling Author Ashwin Sanghi’s New Book The Sialkot Saga Released

Writer-Ashwin-Sanghi

Kolkata’s largest bookstore chain Starmark, in association with Westland Books, held a conversation and book-signing session at its South City Mall outlet for bestselling author Ashwin Sanghi. The occasion was the launch of his latest book The Sialkot Saga.

The-Sialkot-Saga

‘When it’s a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.’ The lives of Arvind and Arbaaz, both ‘businessmen’ of a kind are unwillingly intertwined, while they play out their sinister and murderous plots of personal and professional one-upmanship, all the while breaking every rule in the book. Both are unaware that what they seek and fight over is the very obstacle in releasing an ancient secret that dates back to a time long forgotten. So, can it be that a man is sinner and saint, victor and victim, black and white?

Ashwin Sanghi, master storyteller and spinner of yarns, weaves together once more threads of the past and present, fact and fiction, history and mythology, business and politics, love and hatred while dangling you ceaselessly over the cliff with this chilling multi-layered narrative, keeping you guessing till the totally unthinkable end. And you’re left wondering whether it’s a matter of faith or fate?

Ashwin Sanghi was in conversation with Yagnaseni Chakraborty, Coordinator, Tata Steel Literary Meet, and thereafter signed his books.
