The Conspiracy at Meru

The Conspiracy at Meru (Vikramaditya Veergatha # 2)


Vikramaditya and his Council of Nine have fought valiantly to repel the rampaging hordes from Devaloka and Patala – but Avanti has been brought to its knees. Ujjayini lies battered its citizens are scared and morale is badly shaken. Meanwhile, the barbaric Hunas and Sakas are gathering on the horizon and cracks are emerging between the allied kingdoms of Sindhuvarta.

The only silver lining is that the deadly Halahala is safe. For now.

Bent on vengeance, Indra is already scheming to destroy Vikramaditya, while Shukracharya has a plan that can spell the doom for the Guardians of the Halahala. How long can the human army hold out against the ferocity and cunning of the devas and asuras? And will Vikramaditya’s love for his queen come in the way of his promise to Shiva?

The deadly Halahala, the all-devouring poison churned from the depths of the White Lake by the devas and asuras, was swallowed by Shiva to save the universe from extinction.
But was the Halahala truly destroyed?
A small portion still remains – a weapon powerful enough to guarantee victory to whoever possesses it. And both asuras and devas, locked in battle for supremacy, will stop at nothing to claim it.
As the forces of Devaloka and Patala, led by Indra and Shukracharya, plot to possess the Halahala, Shiva turns to mankind to guard it from their murderous clutches. It is now up to Samrat Vikramaditya and his Council of Nine to quell the supernatural hordes – and prevent the universe from tumbling into chaos!
A sweeping tale of honour and courage in the face of infinite danger, greed and deceit, The Guardians of the Halahala is a fantastical journey into a time of myth and legend.

Baby Mornings Golden Mornings

Mornings for me before marriage were relaxed. My mom and my bhabhi took care of practically everything so I could get up late and laze around. I thought they were perfect golden days of my life but looking back now, I feel I just lazed around and wasted my time.

Marriage changed everything. Suddenly I was the one who was responsible. After the initial days, aptly titled the honeymoon period, my mom-in-law started dropping hints about waking up early and getting into the kitchen. It was damn difficult to wake up early and act fresh.

Moreover, I did not have any interesting toothpaste at my new house (some boring brand) nor did I have a fancy and exciting toothbrush like the new Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold toothbrush which could add some zing to my morning. I had to drag myself out of bed and into the kitchen. In my half asleep state, I have often exchanged the sugar for salt in the tea … which unfortunately was consumed by my poor hubby since his office was the earliest and hence he was first up and running.

Then came my baby and life changed drastically. Earlier it seemed difficult because kiddo wont allow me to sleep at night and would keep me awake all through the night … sleeping peaceful herself in the morning when I had to be awake. But then something changed. I am tempted to say things changed but the fact of the matter is that I and my perspective changed while the 'things' remained the same.

Watching her grow up into the cutest and most adorable kid in the world made my day. Each morning I would look at her face and begin my golden morning. She made my day. She made all efforts worth all that I was going through.
