    1. The book has made me fall in love with quantum physics. The first ever thriller on Buddhist iconography and beliefs, it is a great mix of science, mysticism and religious iconography. Extremely relevant for the modern times, the issue of Islamic reformation is dealt with great pragmatism. The end unlike Dan Brown novels leave you with a nerve soothing effect. Another best seller on its way. Do not forget to pick up one.

    2. A highly anticipated book, Keepers of the Kalachakra is the next in the Bharat series by Ashwin Sanghi. I have absolutely loved his previous works. He is the master of unlocking secrets and mysteries from the past and he weaves it so beautifully into a fast paced thriller backed by tonnes of research, it is a commendable feat indeed! Sadly, this time his book failed to impress me.Keepers of the Kalachakra begins with some prominent world leaders dropping dead, and some not so prominent. Vijay Su [...]

    3. KEEPERS OF THE KALACHAKRA : Ashwin Sanghi : The 401 page trip takes you on a global journey of Terrorism, Technology, Treason, Suspense, Murders, History, Mythology, Facts, Fiction, Knowledge, Assumptions, Beliefs, Science, Spiritualism, Religion and finally taking a Quantum leap settles within One’s Self. Revealing anything else about Ashwin Sanghi’s Best and Painstakingly Researched Novel so far, would be an absolute injustice to all the readers who haven’t yet ventured into this Treasur [...]

    4. The book is a great read in terms of information, and the only drawback is that it doesn't come together coherently to tell a great tale. There the book fails, and also my great expectation from Sanghi. I am not narrating the plot as you ought to enjoy the book without context.A must read though, however read without expectations. Ashwin Sanghi is my favorite author,and is still better than many others by a mile,hence the "Great Expectations". Hoping to see his next book to be even better than t [...]

    5. It is a novel, fast-paced and combines all ancient mystical elements of Hinduism & Buddhism. Started the book and I could barely keep it down. Worth a read. Ashwin Sanghi is rightly called Dan Brown of India.

    8. This one is absolutely wonderful thriller. It’s totally gripping and constitutes a great plot line. The story woven around history/mythology, religion, politics, terrorism and technology, is so impressive. The book traverses through the eastern mysticism, quantum physics, world politics and radical islamism. I loved the story line totally, the way it is introduced, travel through various plots and brilliant closing climax with equally great and important message. Particularly, the few chapters [...]

    9. Good and detailed connectivityThe thought process put to link various concepts of science, philosophy, and religion and create a single string of storyline is remarkable.

    11. Statutory warning: I could not put the book down till I had completed it. After his series of successful bestsellers—thrillers, collaborations with James Patterson and non-fiction books—'Keepers of the Kalachakra' is the latest surefire winner from Ashwin Sanghi's stable/ pen/ word processor/ imagination. (‘Kalachakra’ is The Wheel of Time.)That Ashwin can simplify concepts and make them interesting was proved in '13 Steps to Bloody Good Marks'; now he has proved it again by explaining q [...]

    12. The new book on the Bharat Series is a perfect information trove. It made me wonder whether I am reading real account of incidents though it is a fiction. I have read few reviews and I did not take it seriously until I myself read this book completely. The information given referring back to Ramayana and Guatama Buddha has been supported by valid references of close to 60 books which is mind boggling. I seriously wonder as to where would Mr Sanghi find all the time to read so many books to get t [...]

    13. So here we are, in a very different world yet again. The thing about Ashwin Sanghi's books is that you are drawn into a deep end without too much fuss. It pulls you in and frankly you don't wish to come out; because it is intriguing and makes you inquisitive at every juncture.This one is a blend of mythology, religion, quantum physics and so much more. Ashwin Sanghi blends all of these with finesse and comes up with a riveting book.Sometimes you simply have to marvel at the amount of research th [...]

    14. This book is definitely a great read. Gripping. I only had one complaint with this book: Given that quantum physics and ancient philosophy both play a part in this book, Sanghi could have explained the complex parts in a slightly better way. There were a couple of convenient coincidences too but some liberty has to be given so that's fine.Other than that, this book had multiple moments which I did not see coming and yet they didn't feel out of place. The way Sanghi handled so many subplots, and [...]

    15. Ashwin Sanghis previous works always included linking up mythology, history with present times - creating thrillers which kept one on the edge of their seats. Keepers of the Kaalchakra also does the same - however to a lesser extent. If you are someone who hasn’t read about physics and quantum physics in particular, it is going to be a bit of a struggle to understand this book in toto. Although, the writer still gives examples to make us understand various theories relating physics, mythology, [...]

    16. 2 stars since I’m very conflicted on whether to treat this as a non-fiction about Hinduism, Buddhism & the pathbreaking science behind its religious teachings (or) to consider this novel as a very average thriller mimicking the works of author Dan Brown.If I treat this as a non-fiction then I’ll definitely go with a 5 star rating; the author explains so much science in as simple terms as possible & how our ancestors were far more advanced then we could ever be.But considering that th [...]

    17. Un-put-downable!!! Marvellous story-telling this.The master story-teller that he is, Ashwin Sanghi has done it once again! The way the fictional story takes the reader through the facts in science, history, philosophy, mythology, geography, astrology and astronomy is confounding, to say the least. Mr Sanghi has outdone his previous works with The Keepers of the Kalachakra. After reading The Krishna Key, I was convinced that the author hasn't left anything untold with respect to mythology, r [...]

    18. Utter crap. The plot is all that’s there. First, it’s badly written - all characters talk the same way in spite of different backgrounds and nationalities. Second, the story is too complex. It’s probably intentional so that reader just shuts down his mind and accepts all that is thrown at him. Third, stuff is picked up from various sources and twisted around to meanings very different than the original one. The author even lists his sources and innocuously adds: “These sources may even e [...]

    19. Having read all the books by the author I had to read this book and That was a good decision.The book looks at quantum physics and space time duality in a lovely way. the author has done a lovely job of explaining the concept and relating to ancient Hindu philosphy.There was a side story as always, a group trying to disrupt the world. A group of people trying to save the world. Some more characters here and there.The story was good and had a good pace to it. What i like the best was the fusion o [...]

    20. Ashwin Sanghi is back again with what he loves best - mixing fact and fiction, myth and reality. On the one hand, Heads of State are dying mysteriously in full public glare, on the other hand, a science lab almost coerces a young man to join its facilities. Buddhism, Wahabism, black holes, quantum mechanics, the theory of relativity, secret societiese massive amount of research that has gone into KotK is evident. Also evident is that the writer felt that he had to include all of those nuggets th [...]

    22. Have alway liked reading Ashwin's works - starting from Rozabal Line. I was not very happy with Ashwin's Sialkot Saga. Was waiting for KOTK work with lot of hopes. And saying that Ashwin has beaten my expectation by miles wouldn't be an overstatement. ENJOYED! reading this book thoroughly. Author has gone through extensive research in making this. Although this book is fictional thriller it has lot of Philosophy and Spirituality elements. And the author concludes the book with very workable idea [...]

    23. Ashwin Sanghi does it once again. The ideas propagated in the book makes one think about the different ideologies being practised the world over and their implications upon the lives of the global population. We no longer live in seclusion and each of us is connected via invisible links of social media and the new-age global toolsever, the idea that we are connected beyond this realm gives me goosebumps! The book does get too explanatory towards the end yet it manages to captivate and push us on [...]

    24. Quantum Physics, Gravitational fields,Swastika,Tantra The book is full of these mysteries and their explanations from our Our desi Dan Brown. Some portions are longish specially forthose with lower scientific temperament and you feel like skipping but then the curiosity makes you turn the page back again.Not in the same league as Rozabel Line and use of some of the personality features of contemporary characters across the globe was a bit unnerving . An entertaining novel with the potential of b [...]

    25. Full Review: antorjatikbangali.wordpress.cKeepers of Kalachakra gives us the Ashwin Sanghi we have knows over the years. The book weaves together history, political science, philosophy and mythology in a beautiful fashion without ever being stereotypical or judgmental. The depth and reach of Kalachakra makes it the best work of Ashwin Sanghi till date.

    26. The central story could have been better with a crisper narrative, however the concept/ philosophy that accompanies it, keeps you intrigued and going for more. I did have many issues with some of the things the author described, like the concept of quantum twins, which is vital to the story. But despite all, this is still a good read and certainly worth your time. Go for it!

    27. Masterpiece - Surpassed Krishna Key Enjoyed it thoroughly. Great ride from the start. This book had changed my perception of many things. Made a mistake to buy kindle edition. If I have known this book is great I would have bought hardbound book. I need to buy hardbound edition once again.

    28. Not just a fictionThis is an amzing piece of fiction mixed with Indian cultural History. This book throws light on the scientific advances that Indian society made thousands of years back and how the same has been utilized by modern scientists in their research. A Natraj statue at CERN is a good example of that. And look at the list of references. A well researched thought.

    29. Ashwin Sanghi throws everything at you, science, religion, quantum physics, even the table he writes on. He dwells on incomprehensible relations between unrelated topics and makes you disoriented at times. And in between all this is some minuscule story which was fine by the way. However i praise him for the effort he puts in for the book and research must be grueling. Still a Fan.

    30. My first book of Ashwin Sanghi and I am fan. This man has a knack of narrating three to four stories at the same time and the suspense he keeps you in is awesome. I don't want to include any spoilers but this man has made me look back into few Quantum Physics topics and I'm glued to them now. Very very good read.
