Presenting the blockbuster novel of 2012
The absolutely unputdownable
SETHJI
BY
Shobhaa Dé
RELEASING ON NOVEMBER 1st
The arrow shot by the archer may or may not kill a single person. But stratagems devised by wise men can kill even babes in the womb.’—Kautilya
 This book  is dedicated  to our beloved politicians.... may their tribe decrease
Sethji is a quintessential Shobhaa Dé -- racy, controversial,provocative and dark. In other words, Sethji is unputdownable. 
Sethji provides penetrating insights into the complex innards of contemporary politics in India. Written with sly humour and the characteristic Dé flair for storytelling, Sethji takes you where no other political novel has before - into the depraved centre of Delhi’s power hungry salons, where lives are traded and deals brokered - ruthlessly, efficiently and crudely.
Sethji heads  ABSP, a crucial coalition partner in the government. Shrewd, devious and an inveterate fighter, he is a man who refuses to play by any moral codes or lose a single battle. Easing his way is Amrita, his ravishing and aloof daughter-in-law who guards her own secrets. But when two of the country's most powerful men team up to challenge Sethji, the wily old politician has to fight the deadliest battle of his life a battle in which he must stake everything. The one person he is forced to trust is Amrita, a woman who gives nothing away, not even to Sethji. 
Sethji is Shobhaa Dé’s biggest, most ambitious book yet, one in which she brings her unmatched candour and tremendous daring. Returning to fiction after a decade, Shobhaa has created a character who will stay with readers long after they think they’ve seen the last of him on the last page. It will do to politics what Starry Nights did for Bollywood.

Online shopping facility that w www.rightshopping.in provides is really a welcome boost for the shoppers. Not just because all the leading brands are under the single roof, but also because the shopping facility in the form of discounts, price leverage, brand specifications and so on. Really it’s a shopping carnival that www.rightshopping.in

Most of your books are just extensions of your blog posts. Style, effort and research in your books are no more than what you put on your posts. So I don't really get the feel of a reading a novel. But it's anytime better than Chetan Bhagat and the likes of him.
