Agniputr-When Agni first spoke by Vadhan

This is
Vadhan's second book I believe but the first that I have read. The story has a mystic and rustic touch to it. It has been some time since this book has been on my to-read list. Just when the book arrived in the mail, I was already starting with Ye Honey Bunch my new novel. Now that Ye Honey Bunch is almost done, I got the book out again and was certainly hooked to this one. It's an enjoyable read, especially if you like Dan Browns or  Ashwin Sanghi kind of books. It is not exactly a sci-fi or mythological fiction, but quite close to fantasy fiction. The cover design by Graficus is simply amazing.

The story goes something like this. (I am trying to be as vague as possible to avoid spoilers). There is a dark energy hidden in a village. A tantrik knows plenty about this and ties up with a power hungry politician to take advantage of the fact.

Opposing them is Raghuram Surya a  lawyer under whose property this evil is lurking. He joins forces with a paranormal researcher, Sheila.  They use ancient science to solve the mystery but have to be quicker than Kiromal, the corrupt politician.

Career Impact in times of Corona Virus

In the last few days, as India comes to terms with Covid-19 and struggles with dealing with this pandemic, one question several people are asking me relates to its impact on their careers. Coronavirus is what you hear everywhere these days. Public distancing and lockdowns are being touted as effective preventive measures to limit its spread. The highly contagious virus has brought the entire global economy to its knees. In this environment, what happens to our careers? Feb-March-April is a period when several corporates roll out their annual appraisal. Salaries are hiked, promotions granted, and career advancements planned. This year, however, things look not so promising for anyone as companies brace for adverse effects on balance sheets and glaring losses due to prolonged disruptions in businesses. Here is what you need to do, confined in your homes to thrive your career -  1) Work from home - Don't just pretend to work. Get some real work done. When this is all
