About the Author
Akash Lakhotia tells about himself as follows:
I was born on 25th August, 1990, in a small village named Rambha at the banks of Chilika lake (Odisha), India. I have settled in Bangalore, Karnataka, India where I attended high school.
I had a rough childhood and constantly suffered from stomach aches. Soon after I turned twenty, my pain worsened, and I was diagnosed with chronic calcific pancreatitis. I fought the disease bravely, and experienced a quick recovery.
I then acquired a Diploma in Game Designing, and subsequently, a job in the same field. My poor health forced me to quit in two months. I was bedridden, and employed my time learning to build games for mobile phones and began working as a freelancer.
People navigate in the virtual world with half knowledge or without any guidelines. . Some of them fall prey to predators .
The book also talks about the not so fair treatment meted out to gay couples in this society. It tells about the illegal activities of a paedophile. who exploits small children. The book elaborates about beggars and their lifestyle.
The plot is good and there are so many sub plots to convey many episodes involving several extraordinary matters like world war , politics and abuse of power by unscrupulous people .
The language is simple . and narration is direct . The storyline is good .
I recommend this book for an easy read .
My rating: 3/5
