Book Review - Bhrigu Mahesh, PhD- The Witch Of Senduwar By Nisha Singh

Bhrigu Mahesh, PhD- The Witch Of Senduwar

Author : Nisha Singh
Genre : Crime Thriller
Publisher : Patridge India
Book's Epigram :
In the idyllic village of Senduwar, fortune seems to smile on its poor residents when they discover precious pieces of a lost treasure accumulating on an abandoned floodplain purportedly haunted by the spirit of an angry witch.
The gold pursuit that follows benefits the lives of many but destroys that of a mother when her son, Malthu, dies in a freak accident a few feet from the treasure site. The superstitious villagers believe that the witch, Jiyashree, has risen from her sleep to punish Malthu- the first person to invade her resting place. Fearful, they abandon the hunt and return to their homes. When detective Bhrigu Mahesh arrives on the scene, the mother asks for his help to clear the mystery behind Malthu’s mysterious death. As Mahesh begins investigating with his unique style, he soon finds himself on the trail of a murderer that leads him to unveil astonishing secrets, beguiling lies, and s tragic tale of a selfless young girl.
In this compelling thriller, a great detective on a quest to solve a complex mystery must separate truth from legend in order to find a killer and restore order in an Indian village.

My Critique:
The book is nicely written and to the point. The story has a flow that keeps you with itself. The book is written in multiple chapters and every chapter is appropriately lengthy.  The characterization is strong  and vital to the movement of the tale. All the characters  are down-to earth and they are realistic.  The story undergoes several twists and turns and at one point when you almost conclude whom to suspect, you are in for a surprise when Bhrighu Mahesh puts it the other way and eliminates the person as the suspect. “Bhrighu Mahesh, PhD “ The witch of Senduwar is a crime fiction written in the most  fluent fashion  of genius like Sherlock Homes, the fictional private detective , aided by the technique of observation. This logically  marvelous  book is woven with a beautiful social mysterious  drama in a literary style. 

The narration is carried out in a very effective manner and the plot is very good. Finally not only does Bhrighu Mahesh solves the mystery and turns the garden of witch Jiyashree's into a place that no one will ever fear to step into.

Celebrating Our Friendship With "Yaroon Ki Baraat"

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out - Walter Winchell

This quote always stand true in my life. My friends are always by my side when others are not. Nothing better than friendship can happen in your life and my life is always full of lovely friends. There are some I spend most beautiful times of my life, some with whom I have done many mischief's, some I haven’t met or even being on call for long but still they can recognize my voice over phone even after 4-5 years, and some whom I never met but still we share a strong bond.

Good things come in as sudden surprises. My best buddy in school ( we laughed and cried together, studied and played together, get rewarded and punished together, we stayed together as much as possible), left school as his father got transferred to a new city with new goals given. We lost contacts and slowly and gradually the memories got buried in loads of burden of studies to establishing careers, returned back to my life with a arrange marriage proposal (Strange But True).

Love Filled Life - Blessing
And gives a new meaning to our friendship….

Grown Up, Well Settled,
At Our Respective Abodes,
Our Family Decided,
Marriage Should Touch Our Life’s Chords.

A Search For A Perfect Match Starts,
Time Files, Memories Fades But Our Faiths Don’t Parts,
One Fine Day,
A Marriage Proposal Rings A Bell,
The Name On Bio, Have A Special Story In My Life To Tell.
My Old Best Buddy Comes Out,
Out Of My Memory Chest,
Reminded Me Of Most Precious Times We Have.

Fights For The Last Bite Of Samosa,
Or Last Sip Of Soda,
Those Two Seat Cycle Rides,
Back Seat Possession A Coin Toss Decide,
Hiding Own Homework Books,
Just To Make Sure We Are Punished Together,
Sharing Every Award With Each Other,
Fighting To Be Together In Team Game,
Going Mad Over Those Who Don’t Take Together Our Name,
Participating Together As A Team,
Moaning Loss And Celebrating Wins,
Studying Together, Playing Together,

*On That Day*
Being Together Like One.
That Was My Friendship With That Name.
Deep Thoughts In Mind,
For Our Upcoming Arranged Meeting,
And The D-Day Arrive,
I Can Sense The Same Confusion In His Mind,
Though That Meeting Was Too Formal,
And The Confusion Remains Unanswered,
With Our Acceptance, Our Fate Was Fixed,
And Starts The Period Of Our Courtship.

First Meeting After Years, So Many Unanswered Questions 
None Of Us Even Tried To Ask,
But Answers Found The Way Without Being Asked,
He Visited My Place For The Engagement,
While Going Through An Old Album,
He Stumbled Upon My Childhood Pic,
His Hand Stops, And Eyes Begin To Shine.
He Looked At Me And Smiled,
And Said, I Never Knew Here’s What We Are Destined.

I Was Shocked, But Super Happy,
Not Because It Was My Engagement Day,
But Because I Met Him Again,
My Childhood Buddy.

Now We Are Together For Five Years,
With No Chances To Be Away,
We Are Connected That Way,
After All We Are Each Other’s Better Half.
Nothing Is Changed In Our Friendship,
We Just Have An Addition To Our Gang,
Our Little Champ.

School Buddies Now SoulMates
