Description

About the Book: Checkmate

AD 455, Central India

Harshavardhana, a brave warrior is taken prisoner by the marauding Svetahunas. In captivity, he fashions a game of war strategy with black and white pebbles that will eventually come in handy when the Svetahunas and the denizens of Ujjayini face off in the final battle. A battle that would determine the future of Bharatvarsha. His compatriot through captivity and later on is the poet, Kalidasa.

Present-day. New Delhi

After her estranged father, Rajinder Joshis sudden death, Vinita is called in from New York to take charge of AveoGen, her fathers lovingly-nurtured company now floundering for lack of leadership. She also comes into possession of the tantalising clues that Rajinder had left behind about his long- tanding obsession—the origins of chess and the identity of its inventor. As she flits between boardrooms and long-forgotten historical sites, Vinita must battle both her inner demons and her fathers many enemies to arrive at the truth.

Nihshanka Debroys debut novel is a racy thrilling work that flits seamlessly between two time periods to narrate a fascinating story blending history and contemporary events..

About the Author: Nihshanka Debroy

Nihshanka Debroy, the son of noted economist and translator, Bibek Debroy, was born in Burdwan, West Bengal, and raised in Delhi. He spent his childhood bent over chessboards and savouring mystery and adventure novels. A former under-12 Delhi chess champion, who twice represented his state at the national level and competed with several opponents who are now grandmasters and international masters, he went on to earn a Masters degree in computer science at Duke University............ Since childhood, Nihshankas passion for chess has run parallel with his even older love for the written word. His parents are writers and scholars of Indian mythology. Through his writing, Nihshanka explores ancient Indian themes through a modern Western lens. Nihshanka lives in Atlanta, Georgia where he works in the pharmaceutical industry in analytics.
