Book Review – Brahmahatya – by Rajiv Mittal

“Brahmahatya” ( a sanskrit word meaning “the act of killing of a brahmin”) is a story of emotions, relationships, suspense, guilt, revenge and forgiveness..

In this book, protagonist Ravi Narasimhan, who works in Dubai, returns home due to sudden illness of his father..He tries to get his father admitted in GMR Old age home as he couldn’t stay in India due to work…Dr.Chari, one of the trustees in GMR Old age home, refuses admission for his father citing medical reasons..So he admits his father in another old age home which is not good when compared to GMR..After some days, his father dies and Ravi holds Dr.Chari responsible for his father’s death…What he does to punish Chari and whether he succeeds in his mission makes this story entertaining and thrilling to read..

All the characters are penned well by the author especially Ravi’s father and Bhavna, who works in the old age home..Author refers to many hindu slokas and mythology..

When I started reading this book, I was wondering what would happen next and even guessed about the climax part…But I was wrong and the climax part was dramatic, unexpected, thrilling and I loved it..

I liked the way the story was told by author..This book is interesting and engaging to read..

My rating is 4/5.

Disclaimer: I received a digital copy of book  in return for my honest review..I didn’t receive any monetary compensation for the same.
