Even I read it because of all the hype but to be frank I didn’t like it so much. Of course I can’t deny that the author has put a lot of efforts in writing it by compiling . So, when looking for the next book to read I, as a supporter of Indian authors, dutifully picked out Ashwin Sanghi’s ‘The Rozabal Line’.

Within the labyrinthine recesses of the Vatican, a beautiful assassin swears she will eliminate all who do not believe in her twisted credo. By not assuming the reader as dumb and by letting his readers discuss the hidden connections on forums like these, Sanghi could leave his readers wanting for more. A honeymooning couple from Japan had been on a cruise of the Greek islands at that time.

They had no emotional or spiritual ties to Asahara or asuwin Aum Shinrikyo, and they were now free to do as they pleased. There was no record of any such king having ruled the northwest of India around that time. The Hindu concept of karma was also adopted by other religions, such as Buddhism.

I love her and want her to be happy–but she’s just a child! The goatee and rimless spectacles completed the slightly academic look.


He resembled a man carrying a heavy wooden object on his right shoulder. The same day a Japanese woman had entered the capital, Dushanbe, wearing an Afghan burqa.

During these six years she would eagerly await the monthly arrival of one of the jovial and rotund Fathers from Rome.

Many Brahmins and priests have turned against him.

The Rozabal Line

The protagonists of the book fail to register on an emotional level and that is primarily because the novel encompasses centuries and they get only a part of the spotlight.

After reading that book,I am cross with myself for ordering the chanakya chant also. I really regret the time, money and energy spent on reading this book. As an Indian reader, I found the treatment of karma and rebirth a little bizarre. So its a nice book but I’ll not going to recommend this to every reader except The ones who love Theological thrillers: You have to have at least a working knowledge of Christianity to enjoy the book.


I was also aware of the traditional Christians being very similar to the Brahmins of India.
