WRITING STYLE: 3.5/5
ENTERTAINMENT QUOTIENT: 4/5
Naxalites have become a permanent threat to the peace and prosperity of our country. They have spread their ugly roots in not one but many states of the nation. It is therefore a very noble idea to write a book on such an issue for even if it does not help address the issue it will atleast help generate awareness about it. Operation India One is a story based in the Naxalite infested state of Bihar. The small town of Bhagatpur is under the complete control of Naxalite forces. MAF, the Naxalite group which operates in the area is ruthless and brutal and has been the force behind the murder of many innocent lives.
ACP Gautam Dhaliwal is a dedicated police officer who is assigned the task of clearing out the mess which the MAF has created in Bhagatpur. With the help of a few other dedicated people, he undertakes a journey that will not only leave you inspired but will also entertain you to no end. The roller coaster ride will take you from the posh areas of Delhi to the untamed jungles of Bihar. It will introduce you to the ugly connexion of the politics, corporate and bureaucracy and will leave you flabbergasted from the shock of it.
So will Operation India One become successful? Will Gautam succeed in his mission and eradicate the MAF? Will the obnoxious connection which exploits the lives of the rural tribals ever be exposed? Will the tribals ever get justice? To know this and much more about ACP Gautam’s adventurous journey, read this amazing book today!
The writing style of the author is worth appreciating for he has delivered the perfect combination of action, drama and adventure and created a story which not only serves a bigger purpose but also gives the readers what they desire most from any book – entertainment. Operation India One moves at a fast pace and is full of encounters, combats and guerrilla warfare. There is not a single sentence which spells boring for the reader.
The characters too are equally amusing. ACP Gautam Dhaliwal is surely the one to look forward to but the list does not start and end with him. Kavita, Charulata, Nisha and Mohan are likewise impressive and they all have a certain charm about them. I liked the way the author has tried to introduce a romantic angle between Nisha and Gautam. It was definitely a clever move and I really applaud the author for it. His experience working in the Naxalite regions of Bihar has surely complemented his writing and has made the whole story much more realistic and visual. The climax too was enthralling and worth the wait.
All in all, Operation India One is one fantastic read and I therefore recommend it to all my readers while rating it four out of five stars.
