The story begins with the year 2019 where the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Doshi is on the hit list of terrorist organizations because his Make in India campaign run successfully and it affects the Chinese and European countries economy. Ajay Kaamte, director of SPG (Special Protection Group), is tasked with protecting the PM because Lok Sabha elections are near and the SPG already thwart 49 assassination attempts on Mr. Doshi. Poorvi Acharya, news reporter, and a gossip queen who does anything to come into the limelight. Nalini who works in the PR department at the PMO. The story tells us that the sniper attack was old-fashioned and in 2019 terrorists use Cyanide and it became the preferred weapon for Indian PM as he enjoys his favorite beverage, chai very frequently. Every dish was tasted before serving the PM but during the SAARC meeting in Islamabad PM was poisoned and went to the Coma. Ajay was the prime suspect in the assassination attempt. From this point, the whole story takes a turn which gives goosebumps to readers especially when Ajay who worships Mr. Doshi reveals his hatred towards Mr. Doshi's unfulfilled promises or minority's issue. In the meantime, Poorvi uploads the recorded confession of Ajay and it goes viral within a few minutes. After that, the President declares the emergency for 24 hours and jam all communication network. Poorvi flies to Israel on the same day where she got to knows that this entire emergency was a cover-up for something big. In India, seven thousand people were arrested by the army. Nalini with the help of Raghuram, an IB officer unrevealed something about AIIMS and the administration which makes things more clear about the emergency and Ajay's confession. The author very well described the Rohingyas people, Hashashins, biological warfare, and working of RAW, IB, NIA, CBI, and SPG. The author does quite impressive research on characters and the storyline is amazing. The language is a little difficult to understand and some Hindi words are used unnecessarily. The story keeps the readers hooked but at some point, it is slow-paced and boring. It gives some insightful content. There are some minor flaws in the story but overall it's a good read.

    "What's wrong with this book? Instead, ask what is right? (An honest review in exchange for a review copy.) The book starts with a prologue that says the year is 2019 means one year ahead than where we are living now, but-but-but when you start reading the book it turns out to be an old beer, a beer that was served in the 90s and now is completely obsolete. Yes, the story is a cliche, the incidents seem 3-4 decade old, there is not a single thing new, creative, and worth appreciating in this book. "What's wrong with this book? Instead, ask what is right? (An honest review in exchange for a review copy.) The book starts with a prologue that says the year is 2019 means one year ahead than where we are living now, but-but-but when you start reading the book it turns out to be an old beer, a beer that was served in the 90s and now is completely obsolete. Yes, the story is a cliche, the incidents seem 3-4 decade old, there is not a single thing new, creative, and worth appreciating in this book. Let's move ahead with the review. The prologue says, "Despite being invincible to political rivals, even a guy with "56-inch ka seena" is vulnerable to potential terrorist attacks. Did you remember anything with this "56-inch ka seena remark?" Yes, in 2014, our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi said this that he had 56 inch ka seena and then all political parties trolled him on the same. (Did you notice the story has jumped from 2019 to 2014 on its own? Clearly no creativity. The story needed a PM and the author just picked Mr. Narendra Modi and made a story around like a schoolboy makes an assignment) When I read this line, I was damn sure the author had Mr. Narendra Modi in his mind while writing this script and when I moved ahead he proved me wrong RIGHT. The story revolves around the Prime Minister and the name of the PM (in the book) is NARENDRA Doshi. Bravo. What a creativity. Modi became DOSHI. He must have spent many sleepless nights to write such a creative and novel thing. LOL 56 inch ka seena, Narendra Doshi, Terrorists attack. I am damn sure the author must have researched for years or maybe decades to think and develop the script of this book, otherwise who comes up such silly, flawed and senseless characters, dialogues and plot? A schoolboy can do better than this. he wakes up to find himself sweating profusely, having soaked the whole bed sheet under him What-what-what? say it again. The protagonist had a nightmare and when he woke up the bed sheet under him was wholly soaked. I cannot believe this. I cannot, Mr. Author. Did he urinate in his dream? because that's the only possibility. LOL. Rutuja has been witnessing Ajay's nightmare helplessly for the past two months so much that she has started taking the sleep medicine prescribed for Ajay, to help her sleep This is another shit. She takes sleeping pills just because her husband does have nightmares and she wants to sleep. WOW. that too when the author described her a woman who loves her husband to death I couldn't digest it. She must have stood by him instead of taking sleeping pills just to keep herself at sound sleep. The least possibility could be going into another room and sleep instead of taking sleeping pills. But the poor author did not even give them another room despite the facts that they were living in a big house provided by the government. I told you, this book is an attempt by a schoolboy or maybe a schoolboy can write better script. Surely yes. while each of the trained assassins had committed suicide by consuming a heavy dosage of cyanide right after their attempts were foiled by the SPG, one of the perpetrators was caught alive by Ajay before he could gulp the cyanide pill hanging on a pendant around his neck Holy shit!! Did you remember something? Yes, in the 90s there used to be such a situation in movies where the assassin used to lick their diamond ring or pendant when they had no way to escape. WOW, the author did not have any better thing (Lick-Pendant-cyanide) in his mind (schoolboy, you know) so he lifted the situation from the 90s movies and put it as it is. Bhai kuch to naya soch lo, 2019 ki story likh rahe ho tum, dukh hota hai itti buri book padh ke (Brother, think something new, you are writing a story set up in 2019. It is just crap what you have written) P.S. This review is based on first 10 pages of the book. If I review the whole book, it will go somewhere 50 MS Word pages long. 50 MS Word pages to show how much worse this book is. Recommendation to any? Are you out of your mind?

I’m glad I got a chance to read this book. *** The Last Chai is another brilliant work of author in political thriller genre. It’s sequel of PSYCON but definitely can be read as standalone. Book revolves around Ajay, Poorvi, and mystery behind assassination attempts on PM, set in year 2019. It’s about the controversies, heinous plots of enemy threatening war between nations, money, fame, religious disputes, and of course politics. A story that is much deeper, complicated, and complex than it looks. Characters- In the beginning, Ajay is the usual ruthless officer who is harsh on his fellow team members and won’t allow any kind of mistake in the work. He is dedicated and devoted to his nation and PM. But as story progress he becomes very complex and his action and behavior is questionable. I was dubious about how his picture was portrayed by author and at the same time couldn’t figure out whether to believe it or not. I had the inkling there was something more to it and I’m glad I was right for that. Poorvi was courageous, bold, influential, and will go to any length in search of truth. She had very bad first impression. I honestly didn’t like her action and the way she extracted information for juicy conspiracy news for her online channel. She was flawed character but definitely remarkable and impressive at the end. There were many other characters who were related to this mystery, agents, chiefs and people working for nation and PM. I suggest to keep a note of all of them as they were important and of course to not get confused. What I liked- I loved the constructive plot, characters, and writing of this book. Author has written this creative plot excellently with all information and keeping in mind of all minute details required for it which showed how well researched the book was. I was impressed by all those details on intelligence agency of India who worked to protect nation and how they operated, how the agents and people worked in those departments, what all sort of things they take care. Another good thing about the book was some facts that were used in creating plot like the Hashashin, death of Gauri Lankesh, Lal Bahadur Shastri, and Indira Gandhi. At first, all political jargon and the narration of story through chapter presenting it at different place at the same or different time made me go slow with the story, as I had to keep note of everything to not miss out any details, so many things were going on in very less time frame and second I’m not a person who knows in and out of politics so I had to google few things to get better knowledge. But as I read more and reached in middle of story, I got better idea of what was going on and at the same time I had a lot of question- Why and who attacked PM, what were the motive behind Ajay’s actions, who are the Hashashins and how they got entry in India undetected, who is silent protector of Poorvi and why she needed protection and many more. The way author answered all this questions was very impressive and brilliant. Suspense was definitely thrilling, I couldn’t figure out a thing till Poorvi’s little adventure in search of truth. This was very important part of the story as it answered all those questions. I loved the characters and the way they were portrayed specially poorvi. The least I was expecting was her leading an important role in the book which came as shock to me and I really liked that. Her character development was remarkable and the message was given through this character on not to criticize everything that government do on the basis of half-truth and lead people towards nation building direction. It was awe-inspiring. I loved the way book ended and how author wrote epilogue under the title of ‘After effects of The Last Chai’ that was unique and something new. Can’t wait to see what thrilling story author will create for the sequel of this book. Overall, it was mind blowing political thriller in Indian style that anyone would enjoy reading. If you love political thrillers, I suggest go blind for this.

I don't even have the patience to talk about the childishness Varun T offers in this book. Yes, it is a childish attempt.

It is like a retelling of an old movie of Dharmendra era where Dharmendra was a special investigation officer and he was asked to protect PM say, Jackie Shroff. Sounds interesting? Yes, this setting (0f mine) is more interesting than this book. Let me tell you 9 things I hated about this book. Yes, I HATED. 1. The plot is a cliche. There is nothing new. I am glad this book is just available in eBOOK format not paperback. Not a single tree (actually leaf) deserves death for this crap. 2. The emotions. The author miserably failed to put the emotions in the story. Not a single character was acting in an appropriate way. Whether it was Rutuja or Ajay they all act like emotions are being forced on them. For instance, first Rutuja gets angry at her husband for keeping a lone terrorist with him to torture and when Ajay cries (yes, SPG director cries. Special Protection Group director cries, to save himself from his own wife :P ) she was like "I am sorry, I am sorry, I doubted you. I shouldn't have". 3. the assassins committed suicide gulping cyanide. I guess author needs to search the ways a terrorist can do suicide and come up with something new method. The book was themed on 2019 but it had old years setups. 4. Poor poor poor editing. This book is a net of loopholes and editing blunders. I am sure the editor must have put his/her efforts to make this book sound but alone they couldn't take it far when the author himself wrote a crap. 5. The author tried to cover everything from terrorism to brainwashing and ended up telling (retelling, actually) a stale tale with nothing new to take from it. 6. The childish way characters react to situations. It is hilarious actually. Instead of being sad, I had a laugh, literally. 7. Predictable situation and incidents. You can easily tell what is going to happen next and you know what? you are RIGHT in your every single guess. No, you are not genius, the author was dumb while creating this MasterSHIT. 8. I had pain in my eyes reading more than 200 pages of utter nonsense, but I had to complete it as I committed to someone to provide a review. 9. I had to write a review. I hated the whole book, but I don't have the patience to write about all things

While the NSG head Ajay had been arrested as Hassansin behind assassinating PM story starts to move many twists and turns who and why they intend to kill PM of India. How they planned and did they succeeded or not is an end result. The story is must done beyond many research talking about many things like RAW, NSA and Morse code followed by them.

The knots and reasons behind them were are also written and way of carrying it makes read interesting. Overall, The last chai is obviously a go to choice for thriller lovers. It will be a good read for sure. Also waiting for its squeal to know much more of Ajay's adventures.

The story is set in 2019 India, right before the elections. The author has named the main political leaders inspired by our leaders today, making the story more relatable. The book is an eye-opener for everyone, and makes you question everything you know and wonder how much of it is it that you have absolutely no idea about. Ripe with conspiracy theories that make so much sense, I read most of this book in one sitting, unable to keep it down once I was 50 pages into it. At times, the book gave me a very 'Ek tha Tiger' feel, but I say that in the best way possible. The missions, the plans, the foiling of plans and overthrowing downright selfish aspirations of other countries and the role played by 'Rohingyas' (you'll know why I have put this in quotes once you read the book) are the highlights of the book. For most part, I was curious about the character of Poorvi Acharya, the ruthless journalist out to get the government, and did not really understand her significance in the entire plot. But the last few pages summed up her role so perfectly, I almost wanted to hoot and clap for the author. Take a bow, Author Varun. I am extremely impressed with this tight, crisp and ripe with conspiracy theories narratives. Highly recommended. You are missing out on a lot if you haven't read this yet. And there is absolutely no way you should think of skipping it!

    Varun's book is like a special blend of tea. Every time you read it, it is a bit different. Why? The book is a political thriller. It revolves around Narendra Doshi who is the PM of India and is up for re-election in the year of 2019. The book is heavy with NAMO philosophy & also his cabinet ministers and security.

The story reminds us of a lot of historic events in Indian Political History as well. The book is very well written. Grammar and sentencing for each paragraph is good. Although, the cover doesn't do complete justice to this book it is still good. Character development wins the reader. It is the best thing about this story. I guess all 2017 Amazon writing contest winners have written some serious masterpieces and they should be read more and more. If you cringe at the name of political fiction, I urge you to read it. If you would like to know more about present political scenario in India and just how many surface levels are there, this book is for you. Politics is also like an ice berg, no one knows what hit them all they see is that the tip of the ice berg is still far away. It never is. Like Varun says, 'In politics, there are no permanent friends or enemies, just permanent interests'.

Poorvi Acharya and Nalini also scores along with Ajay. In fact its Poorvi's character which I liked a lot. The way she changes her perspective and transforms completely into a different women is indeed written well with lots of suspense elements. Overall it's a great book which offers something different from what other Indian Authors caters to the reader. Eagerly looking forward for the sequel ; Dabbing the Dragon.

    Book like a Bollywood movie with lots of masala and patriotism... Really speechless after reading this book, don't know what to write. This book is masala movie making a die hard Indian fan as a terrorist which makes me remind of Ajay devgan's movie dil jale and what a coincidence the main male protogonist name is Ajay. In between story was little stretchable. Once when the blame went on Ajay I got to know there would be a twist aur a staging to save India.

Overall it's a good Goodread... 😊

The story is set up in 2019, just before the elections and aptly depicts the political scenario of India. The story begins with Ajay Kaamte who is shown as the head of the SPG (Special Protection Group) and a bhakt of the P.M, being woken up by nightmares almost every night. There are threats of The P.M being assassinated by the terrorist groups he is always worried for his safety. But something unexpected happens when Ajay tries to poison the P.M's chai and leaves him to die. He is immediately arrested and put to investigation by the NIA. He immediately confesses his crime and the video of his confession goes viral, thanks to Poorvi, a journalist who is a strong and influential character in the story. But there is more to the story, Poorvi, who is always speaking against the administration is being protected by a secret protector and in order to find out the truth she travel places. On the other hand, the President declares a national emergency in order to neutralize the terrorist attack, while the P.M is in coma."The protocol dictates that the Intelligence Bureau can spy on its own citizens in matters concerning national security… they can even hold captive individuals who pose a national threat.” Will Poorvi be able to find out the truth about the conspiracy? Will the terror attack be neutralized? Will the P.M come out of coma? ‘In politics, there are no permanent friends or enemies, just permanent interests’. The story will make the reader suspect each and every character in the book as it would be difficult to judge who is right and who is wrong until the reader reaches the climax of the story. I was so engrossed in the book that even after finishing the book, I was still feeling scarred as if I'm experiencing the scenario of the national emergency. I really loved the book- the cover, the language and the characters. Eagerly waiting to read its sequal. Its a MUST READ for everyone.

    As the title goes by, this book didn't exactly work as a chai. The book started on a very promising note, assassination, MIA, Chinese, the moment I read Narendra Doshi, the book lost a star right there. The plot which at times gets interesting at times is let down by many cliches. I wanted to see some originality but I was disappointed. Though a political drama, a lot of important issues have been discussed and highlighted in the book.

I did finish the book at one go as it's an easy read and good usage of vocabulary but few cheesy Hindi lines could have been avoided. It's a good attempt and I am happy that Indian authors are exploring few more genre apart from mytho-thriller and college love, heartbreak. I'll recommend this book, it's not boring but just cliched at places. Happy Reading. I received the copy from the author in exchange for honest review.

He has nabbed a young boy of 19 who tried to kill PM and in the process killed Bhardwaj who tasted the tea which was meant for PM. They try to get information from him but in vain as he was totally brainwashed. Ajay's wife confronts him about the 19-year-old boy who was being tortured in his custody and he got shocked as no one knew about the news a leaning journalist Poorvi spreads this news through her tweets. When Doshi goes to Pakistan for SAARC summit Ajay goes with him but somehow terrorists get success in their plan and Doshi is poisoned and he goes into coma. Ajay is arrested and Poorvi is sent to Israel by some unknown helper. What happens next is the real story. The incidents are well described in the story. I will give this book 3/5. It was a nice read and I completed the book in one go. It was full of mysteries and writing was effective. The book has the capacity to bind a reader though the cover could have been better.

The political glitch lingering around him is the soul of this book Or I should say, he builds up this whole pseudo glitch situation to achieve what he wants. The book has been written very well. No doubt, a lot of efforts have been put in bringing out this fictitious story that takes us by surprise with its thrill and conspiracies. The narrative has been woven meticulously to engage the readers and keep them at the edge of their seats. The development of the characters, as well as the storyline, is amazing. The portrayal of the different characters is very nice. Moreover, as the story progresses, one would find himself closer to its characters. The cover is quite okay and could have been worked upon with more deliberation. However, the title goes perfectly in sync with what the story has to convey. It is "chai" that is an important element used in the story. And hence, using it while pondering over an appropriate title is undeniable. So, If you are looking for a novel that could give you a fresh insight into the scenario of our nation and love to read a political fiction, you should definitely read this book!

Coming to the title of the story which is really interesting and the cover will surely add more curiosity to pick this book. The narration of the book is fast paced and can be done in one sitting. The language was surreal but it can be improved in the coming books by the author. Intense research by the author is a positive point about this book. But somewhere I felt some strings were loose about the book but I would readers to skip it. Overall I would rate the book 3/5 stars. A good read, indeed.

A hand picked head of SPG, Ajay Kamte faces the arduous task of managing his security. A compulsive chai drinker,PM Doshi has added to a new form of threat via cyanide poisoning, and in the process, a trusted lieutenant, Bharadwaj, who was supposed to taste the Brew before the PM lost his life before he could be administered the antidote. Falling our of the favor of PM for an obvious security breach,and weighed in by the conscience of Bharadwaj's death, Ajay Kamte is on verge of a psychological breakdown. In his frayed state, a visit to Pakistan is scheduled for the PM and Ajay Kamte puts himself at the forefront of tasting the Chai, overriding his subordinates concerns. An intelligence officer picks up chatter in Islamabad regarding a possible assassination attempt on PM's life, but is overruled as overzealous by his superior. The PM visit happens,and Ajay Kamte sips the brew prior to the PM and clears it as safe.When the PM drinks it,he crashes down and the antidote administered immediately saves his life,but not his system, rendering him Comatose. Ajay is jailed,and during interrogation,reveals himself to be the assassin and that his organization, a radical Hindu right wing group, has taken upon itself to cleanse the country of "traitors" and restore the ancient concept of Akhand Bharat. Assassination of the PM, who has provided mere lip service,is only the first step. The nation in a tizzy, an unexpected measure of emergency is declared and media is banned. Will the country manage to protect herself from this new threat?Or will there be mass genocide?A fast moving tale that shall answer this. A good read in terms of speed and thrill, average in content. A masala genre book, but a pacy entertaining read, nevertheless.

But he is paranoid for his safety and come back before end of leave. Now the terrorist are using cyanide as their favourite weapon. He has nabbed a young boy who killed Bhardwaj his partner too. They try to get information from him but in vain. Now with Bhardwaj gone Ajay is under double pressure. Poorvi is a left leaning journalist who breaks the story of that young terrorist. When Doshi goes to Pakistan for SAARC summit Ajay goes with him. Somehow Doshi is poisoned and he goes in to coma. Ajay is arrested and Poorvi is sent to Israel by some mystery helper. What happens next? Book is very topical. Even the latest Rohingya issue is incorporated. The writer does not try to mask the identity of politicians or other players. Terrorist threats are real. Biological warfare threat is also real. The plot is complex and spans the globe. Left leaning media’s hypocrisy is brought to fore. The pressure under PM and security agencies work is brought out nicely. So many agencies working like RAW, IB, NIA, SPG etc is shown. But that is also the weakness. With this extensive plot the book length should have been more because many things remained unexplained. Varun Tejwani weaved an intricate web but the resolution and explanation did not satisfy me. The Akahdn Bharat Bal track is so outlandish that nobody leave alone seasoned espionage agencies like Mossad, ISI etc will buy it. Emergency also is treated very lightly. And neutralizing 7000 terrorists in one go seems improbable. First thing is how come they knew their exact locations? Nalini and Raghuram track according to me is totally irritating and it slowed the pace. But keeping in view the pace and intricate plot 4/5 stars.

    In a world that is too volatile with political beliefs, I am definitely scared for the book. The Last Chai by Varun T. can be dangerously close to the propagation of political beliefs. The character names in the book are too close to home which is weird yet, in my opinion, a bold attempt at author’s part. It’s like it is too real to be a fiction. In whole, I did love the book and found it perfectly entertaining. Catch the full review of the book at http://readwatchandthink.com/the-last...

The world, as we know today, is not the same anymore.  Blatant threats of war by ‘world leaders’ is the new normal. Gone are the days when mobilizing armies at borders, or aiming missiles at adversaries, was a rare phenomenon. With every nation or their allies possessing nuclear weapons, victory through conventional means is no longer possible, paving way for covert warfare to emerge as the preferred weapon.  New Delhi is an easy target and Doshi, the unassailable supremo of the regime, is on the ‘hit list’.

Intelligence claims that the PM is susceptible to cyanide attacks and situation is grim, to say the least.  Will Doshiji survive to serve another term or will he very soon be having his last chai? Review -  A political story runs through the book which is gripping and enthralling. Having done justice with the theme, the author has successfully highlighted the all political as well as non-political strifes our country is going through. Involvement of not only the insecurity which leaders face but also the religious involvements affiliated with it are brought into focus. How an attack on PM becomes a concern and how it incriminates a muslim teenager boy is the course of the story. A number of themes are running parallel to it or within it. Terrorism is brought into light in different yet so similar colors. The plot keeps the reader engaged because a number of climaxes occur every now and then. Who is responsible for the dangers which our nation is in and how many dangers are hovering over it is still a question. My views - On characters -  Ajay is portrayed wonderfully. Story of one character or other brings out something new or is somehow linked. Though there are too many characters which made the story little difficult for me to put the spots and infer the meaning.  On plot -  The plot is difficult one as it seems too at first sight. To come across a book based on politics is not common for readers. The author did wonderful job in weaving such a unique plot with different theme line and lesson. I liked the concept of awareness which it awakes if taken positively. The plot makes the reader familiar with the political terms with which he was not acquainted perhaps. The use of technology, terrorism, conspiracies, controversies, scams, dangers, insecurities of politics is such a novel theme running through the plot.  On narration -  The book comes with spotless narration. With exemplary editing and no mistakes, the story is complete without any loose ends. Except at some plots where some things seemed to be unfinished and some questions unanswered.  On the cover and the title -  The cover conveys the story completely. It is most apt with male figure reciprocating what the title is saying. On the mark of gun the figure is sipping his last chai. Nothing else could have been better.  On blurb -  The blurb is superb and makes the reader excited to read the book. My ratings :  Title: 5/5 Cover: 5/5 Blurb: 4/5 Narration : 4/5 Plot: 5/5 Presentation: 5/5 Overall Rating: 4.7/5 Review by - Ranu Sharma

Review - Having done justice with the theme, the author has successfully highlighted the political issues of country, including some non-political ones to make the story gripping. How insecure political leaders feel regarding their safety and position couldn't have been highlighted better. Bonus is to add something authentic like religious strifes which affect the politics and the nation as whole. A religion is portrayed as wrong-doer and other religions start boycotting it. Sadly in our country it is always a hindu and a muslim. Here too, the suspicion is on a muslim boy when life of a political leader is at stake. Various stories are running, interlinked with each other, only to bring out the crux of the story. Every political story is incomplete without involving terrorism at one or another level. Here too, terror and religion is played with. Climax of the story remains earthed till the very end. How much is at stake and how many dangers are lurking over the country is answered yet remains a question. My views On characters - There are so many characters involved. But that's how it runs in stories like this. Too many characters, too many stories to highlight. Only to link them together at end, solving the mystery. A central character is the protector and saviour. That is how Ajay is portrayed. On plot - Kudos to writer for bringing out the political story in this world of romance-struck-readers. And doing justification to it. This is not only a story but a message too, enlightening the reader and making him more aware. The plot makes the reader familiar with the political terms with which he was not acquainted perhaps. Technology, terrorism, conspiracies, controversies, scams, dangers, insecurities of politics are brought into focus very meticulously. On narration - The book has wonderful narration with little loose ends though. Or maybe I got confused. On the cover and the title - The cover conveys the story completely. Nothing else could have been better. On the mark of gun the male figure is sipping his last chai.

The story begins with the year 2019 where the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Doshi is on the hit list of terrorist organizations because his Make in India campaign run successfully and it affects the Chinese and European countries economy. Ajay Kaamte, director of Special Protection Group, is tasked with protecting the PM because Lok Sabha elections are near and the SPG already thwart 49 assassination attempts on Mr. Doshi. Poorvi Acharya, news reporter, and a gossip queen who does anything to come into limelight. The story tells us that sniper attack was old fashioned and in 2019 terrorist use Cyanide and it became the preferred weapon for Indian PM as he enjoys his favorite beverage, chai very frequently. Every dish was tasted before serving to the PM but during SAARC meeting in Islamabad PM was poisoned and went to the Coma. From this point, the whole story takes a turn which gives goosebumps to readers especially when Ajay who worships Mr. Doshi reveals his hatred towards Mr. Doshi's unfulfilled promises or minority's issue. In the meantime, Poorvi uploads the recorded confession of Ajay and it goes viral within few minutes. After that, the President declares the emergency for 24 hours and jam all communication network. Poorvi flies to Israel on the same day where she got to knows that this entire emergency was a cover-up for something big. In India, seven thousand people were arrested by the army. Nalini with the help of Raghuram, an IB officer unrevealed something about AIIMS and the administration which makes things more clear about the emergency situation and Ajay's confession. The author very well described the Rohingyas people, Hashashins, biological warfare and working of RAW, IB, NIA, CBI and SPG. The author does quite impressive research on characters and storyline is amazing. The language is a little difficult to understand and there are some Hindi words which are used unnecessarily. The story keeps the readers hooked but at some point, it is slow paced and boring. It gives some insightful contents. There are some minor flaws in the story but overall it's a good read. I highly recommend this book to those who love suspense thriller and interested in Indian politics.

And being a chai lover, I decided to read the book, only by reading it's title. Very brilliant book cover and title. They may create a conflict in your mind, but when you read the story, no conflict will left and you'll be amazed. The book is a political thriller. Talking about the characters, Ajay Kaamate, a ruthless officer, who can not bear a single mistake in his work. He's devoted for his nation. This is the character, you'll like at first, but later you'll get confused, because with the progressive story, his behavior becomes complex and questionable. Poorvi Aacharya, a bold and courageous lady, whom I didn't like at first but later she changes her perspective and changes herself to a totally different lady. This is what I liked the most. One thing about her which I must mention is that she's a reporter who can go to any depth in search of truth. Doshiji, the PM plays important role in the story. Many other characters are there, with a good description, but may not completely involved in the story much. Politics is sometimes my area of interest, and for the book is a political thriller, it drew my attention fully. The description is so well that many scenes can be felt as reality. After few chapters, it was a bit boring, but later with the progress, the story again drew my interest and left me nail biting. Perfectly plotted story which revolves around Ajay and Doshiji. Doshiji is the PM, who is murdered by poisoning. Narration of the story is so impressive and I liked that there was every detail related to political world. Language is error free and to the grammar. Conclusion: Something to proud that I read a book other than love story and that too such brilliant work.

The threat assessment being at an all time high, Ajay Kaamte, the director of SPG (Special Protection Group), is tasked with protecting the PM. Intelligence claims that the PM is susceptible to cyanide attacks and situation is grim, to say the least. Will Doshiji survive to serve another term or will he very soon be having his last chai? Intrigue: An unique book "The last chaii", revolving around politics. Being a keen observer of politics and inspired by honest and political leaders and their writings, I felt this book will be a best bet for my interest, looking at the book cover its quite evident that person having his tea(chai) is last as he is under the gunpoint. This book is a real page turner and political suspense thriller, readers relate to the contemporary political conditions of the words with a pinch of fiction.  The story is nicely plotted around Ajay and Doshi. Doshi is the Prime Minister who is poisoned and Ajay is arrested. The elements like Doshi’s visit to Pakistan, SAARC summit, 9/11, Taj Attack, political pressures which every person(Indian) can correlate. My Verdict: Story grips after few chapters, initially i felt bit boring and made me to guess it is a routine political stuff in typical movies however, twists that turn up in the middle of the story makes the progress as nail-biter, special mention to the character Poorvi, the sensational journalist who succeed in exposing SPG, Author would have taken extra care in naming the characters as I felt the names are obvious to our current politics , overall its a realistic narration, flawless plot with a political thriller.  Rating: Book Title & Cover- 5/5 (Well justified title and cover) Story & Narration: 4/5 (Impressive narration with contemporary story) Characters & Plot: 4/5 (Well Plotted characters, few may not completely involved in story) Language and Vocabulary: 4/5 (Perfect blend of grammar and vocabulary) As a whole I personally rate “ The Last Chai: Bringing the Nation to a Halt” as 4.5/5 which is quite impressive plot, and go to see indian authors coming up with non romance and love story genre, quite paced and page turner with a mix of twist and thrill.

    Since the last few years, politics started attracting my attention. I was looking for a book that would be exciting and interesting to read in this subject. Normally one does not prefer to write political thrillers because it has the capacity of arousing agitation among the masses if it goes in a wrong way. I appreciate the choice of author for choosing this as his subject. The story revolves around Ajay and Doshi. Doshi is the Prime Minister who is poisoned and Ajay is arrested.

Normally one does not prefer to write political thrillers because it has the capacity of arousing agitation among the masses if it goes in a wrong way. I appreciate the choice of author for choosing this as his subject. The story revolves around Ajay and Doshi. Doshi is the Prime Minister who is poisoned and Ajay is arrested. There is also a character named Poorvi who is involved in journalism. The elements like Doshi’s visit to Pakistan, SAARC summit, political pressures, over work and other related things made the story seem like real. This even made me feel more involved in the story. Yes, I was bored in the beginning of the story but the narration was gripping. As the story proceeded; it made me feel like knowing What Next? The plot was a regular one and you might have heard or read something similar in movies or politics books. But the way it has been presented kept me into the book. At some points, I felt that too many elements have been added into the story but it was a good read. The cover is amazing. Sipping tea; without knowing that you are at gunpoint; an amazing idea behind this. It is something what instantly makes you sure that the book must be having some good suspense and thriller element. And not to ignore the stopping pulse map at the bottom of the cover! The title is a good one as Indians are too fond of Chai (Tea). On a serious note, it is an apt title for the book. Title- 4 / 5 Cover- 4.5 / 5 Plot- 3.5 / 5 Narration- 4 / 5 Overall- 4 / 5
