Premier Institutions Such As IIMB, NLSIU And IIMS It s been very long since I read a book written by an Indian author And when I got the opportunity to read this, I took it with great expectations and eagerness The story goes like this, the sacred Dravidian Tribe, one of the most ancient tribes living in India, has protected the SanJeewani plant, since the time, when the Gods lived on this earth The plant has miracle life saving effect, so with modern life being as it is, the Dravidians decide to pass on their traditional knowledge to be use It s been very long since I read a book written by an Indian author And when I got the opportunity to read this, I took it with great expectations and eagerness The story goes like this, the sacred Dravidian Tribe, one of the most ancient tribes living in India, has protected the SanJeewani plant, since the time, when the Gods lived on this earth The plant has miracle life saving effect, so with modern life being as it is, the Dravidians decide to pass on their traditional knowledge to be used for greater good in saving the life of every living being The pharmaceutical companies who promised to do that initially, show their true money grabbing colours later And to fight them, we have the hero, Arjun whose brain is as sharp as his temper And the twists in the story occur The author, Dr Kalyan C Kankanala, has taken his experiences as an IP attorney and used it to bring about this legal thriller between the ancient generous ways of the tribe and the modern money minded pharma companies His main character, a lawyer for the underdogs, Arjun, is a brilliant, young and blind, yet he does not allow this disability to erode his work, in fact, he uses it to his advantage at some points in the book Arjun is accompanied by his wife Shreya, an intelligent researcher, paralegal, his assistant Jose and his dog Neo I loved the camaraderie between these three they provide relief when the court scenes become tensed It is nice when an author understands the Indian mythology and uses this knowledge in his book, giving it a modern twist Such a book becomes a great amalgamation of the old with the new The SanJeewani herb with its life saving properties, which every Hindu has read about in the Holy book of Ramayana, is well recapitulated in the prologue To bring this SanJeewani plant into the story as the crux of the legal fight is a great idea by the author The author, Dr Kalyan, has also delved in extreme detail into the workings of the pharmaceutical companies and their profit only attitude It is well known how they use underhand techniques to get the product and patent it in their name, and Dr Kalyan has taken great pains in keeping this story authentic to their ways The first courtroom scene in the special IP Court which introduces Arjun is hilarious and the wackiness of the plot brings an instant smile These pages go on to show Dr Kalyan s sardonic and witty humour, with which he has penned his words There are some niggles, the book uses a lot of legal terms regarding patents and trademarks and the laws governing them, so it becomes a little difficult to understand those parts Also the flashback scenes which occur do not have a time line so it is confusing initially when the story goes back and forth.Being a legal thriller, I expected only courtroom scenes but this book has adventures in the valley, running from danger, hiding in caves, a secret garden, secret passages and tunnels along with snipers and warriors with bows and arrows This book is the perfect combination of the ancient with modern and at 179 pages, it can be read in a single go in a couple of hours Well, that s what I did Story about an Ancient Indian Tribe and the secrets they protectLegal thriller with heart Loved the characters This book has it all a client that will break your heart, a riveting courtroom battle, the dedicated lawyer his idealistic assistant, and a sweet love story Hope Dr Kalyan hasstories like

cluttered together and words are not mere letters trying to balance themselves on the armature of language Dr Kalyan.C.Kankanala s The Dravidian God s Own Tribe belongs to that category of wonderful books that leaves a bittersweet aftertaste The story is a legal battle that unravels between the ancient Dravidian Tribe and the pharma companies of today.For as long as one can remember, the Sanjeevani plant with all its magical powers got all the protection it needed from the Dravidians However, their moral sense urges them to pass on this knowledge they possess of the plant to the new pharma companies What follows next is the implications of a certain set of false promises When it comes to the characters of the book, they are ingeniously built through their experiences and the author directs all his creative focus on what builds his characters Arjun is quick to lose his temper and is blind but he sees better than anyone around him His wife Shreya is an astute paralegal and one among the most intriguing characters in the book It is also interesting to observe the absorbing manner of their marriage.The consistency the author maintains from the beginning to the end makes it a smooth read for the readers What makes the book interesting apart from the nail biting plot line and the characters with all their quirks and eccentricities is undoubtedly the impeccable language The luminous descriptions transport us to Arjun s world and the ongoing battle The Indianness which creeps into the language is intentional and absolutely necessary A literary enthusiast feels as if they are taken to the land of Swift with the skirmishes between the ancient and the modern.The legal terminologies can be a hard nut to crack, however, this is inevitable since the book is a legal thriller and crafting it without the intervention of legal jargons is impossible On the whole, the book is a fabulous read for everyone The originality of ideas is refreshing and they operate at a deeper level, exposing to the world, the unethical practices, the money grubbing companies of our materialistic world have been doing for long It is an accurate representation of the conditions we have created and continually reinforce in the society with our never ending chase for paper This book is recommended for anyone who enjoys a good adrenaline rush and if you are new to the genre of thrillers, this book is a perfect pick for you At 179 pages, the book can be read in a sitting In brief, this book is what one calls, unputdownable
