About the story-
The story revolves around Kris, and his journey from the Vatican City to India, and then to Germany. Throughout his journey, various interesting incidents happen with Kris that leave everyone around him shocked. Some accuse Kris of being terrorist, while other supports the fact that his name is not Muslim, hence, he can’t be a terrorist.
With the death of Pope to the certain revelations about the famous Indian, Mohandas, the story opens many unknown facts about the history.
My verdict-
The story is for history geeks. The author has successfully penned down the mysteries one after the other. I personally liked the one-liner at the end of the paragraphs that gave storyline an interesting touch. Poems are beautifully written. Language is captivating.
The way author has narrated the story is commendable. There are many revelations about the famous people of the past, whether fiction or reality, but it surely keeps readers hooked till the end. An awesome piece of creativity from the writer’s pen!
Ratings- 4/5
