Highly opinionated! If opinions of author are removed the book would be reduced to half of the pages it has. Even the opinions are flawed and contradicting each other at some instances, some opinions are based on now rejected theories. Not recommended if you want to read it to seriously know about history. It is a series of op-ed more than a history book, consisting chiefly of author's rant.

I did not read this book, I travelled it along with the shepherd boy(the protagonist). Because It is not just a novel, it is a journey full of adventure, spirituality, emotions, surprises, and lessons. While reading this book the person becomes part of the Caravan imagined by the author.

I wish all history books were written in this interesting manner. Mostly history has been written with activities on land at center stage. In this book author Sanjeev Sanyal have beautifully portrayed how activities in Indian Ocean, Arabic sea, etc along with other parts played equally vital role in shaping the series of events which in turn shaped our today as we see.

With plot based on 1930s southern USA and narration made by a six year old child's point of view, the key lesson from this book is that always take stand against injustices and wrongs like racism, irrespective of what the popular narrative is. You may feel isolated but the ultimate victory is worth it.

My Rating : 5/5 stars
From european supremacist mind-set of colonial era trying to fragment India to cunning threats of 21st century lurking behind curtains of liberalism, this book has a Bonafide account of all of them, backed by credible references. An important book for not only every Indian but anyone from across the world to have an idea of how such forces operate and to what extent they can go.
