The Sialkot Saga by Ashwin Sanghi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the story of Arvind and Arbaaz - both unscrupulous businessmen (though of different kinds). Their paths cross unwittingly and results in some hostility. There is a touch of Kane & Abel as their children fall in love with each other while studying in the US. There is an ancient treatment with origins in Sialkot which binds them, and it is left to their children to realize it.
In the some lives of Arvind and Arbaaz there are some incidents sprinkled here and there which have references to known political leaders of the BJP and Congress.
The background and flashes to the Sialkot secret is interesting and makes sense towards the end. The origins could probably have been dealt with in some more detail.
Overall a recommended read - the numerous incidents in the lives of Arvind and Arbaaz add pace to the book.
