When Professor Bharadvaj is approached by the enigmatic Maya Jervois to help her in her search for the Vajra, a historical artifact said to possess alchemical properties, he is reluctant to pursue its trail. He has already spent several lifetimes searching for it, hoping to find the key to his unending life, for behind the assumed identity of the cynical historian, he is a man who has walked the earth for thousands of years. He is Asvatthama, the cursed immortal, the man who cannot die. But when the evidence for its existence becomes compelling, he begins hoping that he might find what he has been searching for his entire life — death. After the highly philosophical and thought-provoking Aryavarta Chronicles, Krishna Udayasankar ventures into a genre that has been tried and tested, and made popular by several famous authors worldwide. And even though she manages to add her own individuality to it, it is clear that her writing style does not suit this particular genre.
Professor Bharadvaj is more than just another whisky-loving, gun-toting historian-for-hire. Behind the assumed identity of the cynical academic is a man who has walked the earth for scores of years. He is Asvatthama — the cursed immortal, the man who cannot die. When Professor Bharadvaj is approached by the enigmatic Maya Jervois to search for a historical artefact unlike any other, he is reluctant to pursue it. The object in question, the Vajra, is rumoured to possess incredible alchemical powers, but the Professor does not believe it exists. After all, he has spent many lifetimes — and identities — searching for it, in a bid to unearth the secret to his unending life. Yet, as the evidence of its existence becomes increasingly compelling, the Professor is plunged into an adrenaline-fuelled adventure that takes him from the labyrinthine passages beneath the Somnath temple to the legendary home of the siddhas in the Nilgiris, and finally into the deserts of Pakistan to solve a confounding puzzle left behind by the ancients.
