Ashwin along with Sonali unveiled the powerful image of the Kalachakra with this intriguing trailer.
The Kalachakra translates to “Wheel of Time” and is representative of the fact that there is very little separating us from the universe and its forces.With this new book, Ashwin is back with yet another fearsome tale – this time describing a world of people at war with the other, in a boomeranging conflict of faiths that results in acts of slow, planned human cruelty that defy human imagination. He seamlessly weaves history, science, theology, mythology, politics and philosophy while dangling the reader over the edge with a thrilling multidimensional narrative.
Discussing his intriguing bestsellers like ‘Chanakya’s Chant’, ‘The Krishna Key’, ‘The Sialkot Saga’ and ‘Keepers Of the Kalachakra’, Ashwin Sanghi said, “I am someone who takes a lot of interest in things that are happening around me and stories that are hidden behind art and traditions we come across. When I stumble upon something that grabs my curiosity, I research on it for 8-12 months and then I write my story.“
From being a successful actress, to being one of the most popular faces on television and a favorite with brands, Sonali Bendre Behl also runs Sonali’s Book Club. Speaking at the trailer launch she said, “I’ve been an admirer of Ashwin Sanghi’s work and have enjoyed his books. I’m happy to be here today to launch the cover of his new book, ‘Keepers of the Kalachakra’. It’s great to learn of Ashwin’s unique way of research, I have never heard of anything like it before! He makes the hard work that goes into creating this beautiful and riveting story sound so effortless. Looking forward to reading it and can’t wait to share it with the members of SBC.”

The trailer attempts to demonstrate that there are secrets to the technique that have been preserved down the ages, some of them in plain sight. It is amazing that Sonali Bendre, an ardent book lover is here to grace the event and launch the trailer. I have been a huge fan of Sonali forever.”

About his upcoming book – Keepers of the Kalachakra:
A seemingly random selection of heads of state are struck down like flies by unnamed killers who work with the clinical efficiency of butchers. Except that they leave no trace of their methods. Welcome back to the shaded and addictive world of Ashwin Sanghi. After The Rozabal Line, Chanakya’s Chant, The Krishna Key and The Sialkot Saga, Ashwin Sanghi dishes out yet another quietly fearsome tale—this time of men who guard the ‘Kalachakra’ or The Wheel of Time
Sanghi describes a world of people at war with the other, in a boomeranging conflict of faiths that results in acts of slow, planned human cruelty that defy human imagination. Caught in the midst of this madness is Vijay Sundaram, a mere scientist, but one primly aware that the zone outside his laboratory is stretched taut and close to being torn apart by two widely divergent and malignant forces that he wants no part of.
But events conspire to propel Vijay into the secret and shadowy world of Milesian Labs, located deep in the forested hills of Uttarakhand. What he finds is an ancient secret that has terrifying potential, one that modern scientists are still struggling to develop. Trapped and wholly unaware of his actual foe, Vijay races against time to save humanity—and himself.
Master storyteller, Ashwin Sanghi, seamlessly weaves history, science, theology, mythology, politics and philosophy to bring you an exhaustively researched whopper of a plot while dangling you over the edge with this thrilling multidimensional narrative. Swirling from Rama’s Lanka crossing to the birth of Buddhism; from the origin of Wahhabism to the Einsteinian gravitational wave detectors of LIGO; from the charnel grounds of Tantric practitioners to the Oval Office; and from the frankincense-imbued rites of Minerva to the ravaged ruins of Nalanda, Keepers of the Kalachakra is a breathless journey that will leave you gasping for more until all pieces of the jigsaw come together to reveal a profound truth that you simply did not see coming.
