The Game of Power
Little does Aswin Jamwal know that the last twenty-five years of his life have been controlled by a master manipulator, who wanted to make him the most powerful man on earth, though for a reason!
Ashwin steps up to take oath as the youngest Prime Minister of India, and is unknowingly thrown into a vortex of power and authority as the entire world is threatened by a faceless enemy–Hades.
The world starts to look upto Aswin as the saviour, but he was just a pawn, reared only to be sacrificed in the end.
“You have to dethrone a powerful man to become the most powerful. I was itching to defeat the single most powerful person, but there wasn’t any. I was left with only one choice — to create one.”
Just like manipulations and corruption comes easy with politics, so does the game of deceptions and lies. The author, Aparna Sinha has beautifully established the relation between all pawns of the game. Sinha’s focused and passionate writing is clearly visible with her use of vocabulary and language.
The entire book is divided in three parts. First part of the book states Ashwin Jamwal’s journey to become Prime Minister of India. Indian systems and politics is the main theme of this part.
It covers the events which happened before Ashwin Jamwal became Prime Minister of India.
The second part of the book describes the events that made Ashwin most powerful man in the world. Geopolitical position of India is the crux. This part takes a leap of six years.
A psycho terrorist tightens his grip. International intelligence agencies under leadership of Ashwin Jamwal find a way to save the world from a preordained global crisis.
Last part of the book revolves around the search for master manipulator as the mystery unfolds when the man behind Ashwin Jamwal surfaces for a tete-a-tete with him- An invitation for his destruction. The fast paced events in this part connect all the dots to disclose the master manipulator.
“Politics and governance are no longer an ‘old man’s game’. Across the globe, people are welcoming young politicians as leaders. The main reason for this is the growing population of the youth; India has the largest youth population (aged 18-34) in the world”, Sinha said in an interview.
“People have a natural tendency to vote for leaders they can relate with. But while the youth’s participation in politics has been noticeable, the average age in Parliament remains around 54, with only 13 per cent of MPs under the age of 40.
Young politicians, burdened with conventional policies of their seniors, are yet to rise, but they are increasing in number, and it won’t be long before India chooses a young independent thinker as head of the state”, she added.
“Politics is everywhere.
Yet, political thrillers are not a widely read genre. People associate politics with boring stories of old men quietly discussing a government overturn, where in reality it involves continuous strategy and shrewd individuals capable of manipulating and deciding the fate of over seven billion people. It’s exciting to read political thrillers, and even more exciting to write one”, she further added... And we agree.
