The Four Patriots, as the name suggests is a book about four young men who are ready to do anything for the sake of their country.
Varun, a NRI software engineer, loves Alisha.
Salman, CEO of Coffee Moments, loves Mahi.
Raghav, a virtuous politician, loves Neha.
Aditya, an altruist businessman, is married to Prachi.
All four of them are brought together by destiny and together they fight the devil that holds their country captive.
This book has all the elements ranging from romance to patriotism, from poverty to corruption, from terrorism to Naxalites, apart from the web spun for their destruction by their rivals ( the villains ). The plot is fresh and novel with characters described beautifully. It’s definitely a page turner and fast paced. The personal and social life of the characters is twined well and fits the plot.
The best part of the book is it is simple with a clear vision. Though the theme politics and terrorism looks heavy and serious but the author has done a splendid job in passing his message the most simplistic way.
This book is certainly an inspiration for the youth. Hats off to the imagination of the author. He has knitted the story extremely well which deals with modern day problems which we face in our country today. It obviously makes us think that it is high time we leave our ‘chalta hai’ attitude and do something ourselves to change the system.
The story is all about the four protagonists. What will they do? Will they choose country over love, comfort, and success? Will they enter the Chakravyuh, intricately laid down to ensure their destruction? Will they come out of it alive and win back our lost pride?
The twist and turns are brought well in the book. I really enjoyed reading this nail-biting thriller and the climax in the end.
I completely agree with the author’s claim if you have ever fallen victim to the system, been humiliated, felt helpless…this book is for you.
Do pick this book if you are a patriot and do not believe that ‘is desh ka kuch nahin ho sakta.’
If you do, all the more reason to read it!
