My latest book

My latest book to become available at Amazon, is my labor of love.  It began in 2008 and saw many rough seasons, despite winning a commendation certificate from the National Book Foundation in 2009.  It has finally made a debut in the public domain.

This book was initially written for the 13-16 age group.  It underwent major changes afterwards, however, the tone and style of writing have been maintained and hence it would hopefully appeal to all age groups.

It showcases the history of scientific innovations beginning from the ancients, mainly Greeks.  When the Greek world was overtaken by the Romans and thereafter when the Romans plunged into the dark ages from AD 400 to 1400, the torch bearers of knowledge were Muslims.  Muslims continued the tradition of knowledge and made amazing discoveries, invented mind boggling things and made a quantum leap in the sciences by inventing algebra and chemistry.  However, to every rise there is a fall.  The Muslim fell into their dark ages from 1600 and beyond when the west took over where it had left.  The book takes you through this ride in a very easy read.

If you do not know Byzantium, Babylon, or did the Greeks come before Romans or otherwise etc, worry not.  This book will explain in the easiest possible terms the flow of knowledge within civilizations.

Read it, review it, gift it and spread the word.  You owe it to science.

My trip to Greece

In October-November 2010 I undertook a two-week historical quest of Greece.  This was by far my best trip and it exceeded all my expectations.  Greece is vacation destination extraordinaire.  It has history, sightseeing, culture, shopping, breath taking natural beauty and the most wonderful people you could meet.

I have penned down a travelogue on these two-week of solo travel.  The travelogue would make an interesting read for those who wish to get a crash course in Greek history in the most engaging way with quirks of fellow travelers, Greek island tour, Athens guided tours by Greek Archeologists as well as snippets from Hollywood and the Olympics all coming together to bring alive ancient Greece.

There is  talk of history and it is linked to how history is juxtaposed with Globalization.

My travelogue has been published as an e-book and if youre in US you can buy it here:

You can also buy it from Amazon UK and Amazon Europe.

Peace be upon you!
