India has a new Prime Minister but is Siddhartha Tagore the product of his genius or of his dangerous mind?

India is on edge, as a subversive internal revolt against the Constitution and the threat of Jehadi terror of an unthinkable level, are looming on the horizon. Ringing Shivas damaru in and out of Parliament, a sudden turn of karma catapults outsider Siddhartha Tagore - a conflicted genius, music maestro and prodigal son, with forceful views on China and Pakistan into national prominence as the head of the Opposition Alliance and finally as the newly elected Prime Minister of a disturbed nation.

But buried secrets are being resurrected and threaten to expose the past. Twisted within the double helix of menacing politics and hidden lust, Prisoner, Jailor, Prime Minister is a scorching account of Siddhartha Tagore's fascinating journey from Harvard to 7 Race Course Road.

"Vote" for change has become the new motto of India with 2014 Lok Sabha elections going on, day starts with political discussions and goes on as such be it in office or in a restaurant. And the major question is looming "Who is going to be the next Prime Minister of India?", at India's make or break situation the release of this book is very legit and being a political enthusiast myself  this book seems like a precise read this season. 

Cover :  It looks quite engaging, a silhouette of mysterious man walking on a road that seems like never ending. Is that man good or evil, what are his intentions? Is he what he appears to be, what are his secrets? So many questions bombard the mind  and this is how I felt during the course of this book so Good job on the cover.

Storyline and Characters : I would like to start with one main statement, This is one daring book, hats off to the author Tabrik C. Siddhartha Tagore, the protagonist is new Prime Minister of India during the year 2017, he is a musical mestro, a classical lover (OH! He loves classical music, don't let your mind dwell 'there'), a prodigy genius bold person with many inner demons. We all have inner demons but Siddhartha's demons are far more conflicting, as Conflicting as India's situation when he is the PM.

Siddhartha is an aristocrat from Calcutta by lineage and a believer of good education. He is a Harvard graduate and an unusual person who plays symphonies in his mind. No wonder he was known as the "The Mopzart man", a quality that instantly made me like him, he is the combination of Tansen and Mozart, can anything be any better?
But that is not all, now when he is the PM, he got the chance the make that change he wanted to bring, with strong believes and Bold personality, he is dealing strikingly well with the raising issues of China and Pakistan that needs to be dealt with. But as always when someone in power starts to outshine everyone, others tends to bring them down, and in politics, no surprises there. As Siddhartha has a twisted past, it got a lot more murky. The side characters of the book Rubaya Jaykar Tagore, Karisma Jaykar, Kabir Jaykar, Gordon Thorburn, Gregory Templar, Rukmani Devi and many others kept the story on roll throughout.

Writing : Is this really from a debut author, He has raised some serious bars for other authors. From the very beginning the writing is mesmerizing, yes like a music, like orchestra with striking right chords. It shows the author not only has command over the language and the scenario he created but also he had done his homework really well before penning down the story. Best part was 'reading between lines', yes it happened many times. The chapters are written almost alternatively between present and his past days of Harvard University, though it never broke the continuity as the chapters were well connected.

Verdict : It was a musicale of an amazing story in my head, it was dark, it was enchanting, it was captivating and fluent. A Fascinating Musical political thriller that I really enjoyed.

Footnote: Siddhartha loves Symphony 40 by Mozart and I love it too so here is a lil' treat on his behalf :
