A recent addition to the book hoard. 'Sacred Games' by Vikram Chandra, the book behind the very popular Netflix Series of same name, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan. It's a fictionalized account of the nexus of Mumbai Underworld-Police-Politics- and Society. I love reading about Mumbai - or more appropriately Bombay/Bambai- so this should be interesting. . . . #bookblogger #bookphotography #bookhoarder #bookaholic #bookworm #sacredgames #netflix #netflixseries #mumbai #vikramchandra #mumbaiuntold #indianliterature #gaitonde #sartajsingh #nawazuddinsiddiqui #saifalikhan #bombay #bookstagram #book #bookshelf #bookclub #bookish #bookobsessed #booknerd #books 📚 #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookaddict

I've marked the pages in the book where Ganesh Gaitonde's chapters can be found. #SacredGames #VikramChandra #archive0fl0ngings #bibliophile #novel #bookworm #books
Booxtract 02 Sacred Games ~ Realities of religion and redemption This time around my focus is on this 1000 pages of art by Vikram Chandra, and of course there are NO SPOILERS! Though the basic theme remains the same, the plot of the series deviates sufficiently from the book. Here are two points out of infinitely many that stood out in my few weeks spent on this! 1. Patience in revivals There are mesmirising sequences when Gaitonde is down and out such as once after Paritosh Shah's death or when he is thrashed under Parulkar's custody, and two completely different factors lead to his revival each time. The book moves unusually yet beautifully slow in such phases, where we can witness how there is gradual development of mindsets. Even in Sartaj's revival from depression, it is the subtlety of the process that makes a difference, instead of a quick dramatic sequence. In fact, the feeling of "sacredness" itself develops from patient structuring of psychology. 2. Depth of Relationships Isn't it amusing that words capture the essence of relationships in much greater depth than even a direct show of nudity and violence? Taking anything away from the series or the anticipated next season, it is a mere hint of how the book is a masterclass in depiction of relationships. Along with the "love-sex-company" based plots which almost every gangster storyteller makes a best shot to capture, this novel captures a whole different pool. That of a devotee and his God, of a child and his parents and even the complex ones like policemen and fellow colleagues. The characters not only play themselves but also play characters which understand other characters. So if you are looking for a patient book that is drama and reality in appropriate measures, this one is it~ with a bonus understanding of human faith in religion and in fellow humans 🙌
Late night blogging, long over due notes on why I loved Vikram Chandra’s Love and Longing in Bombay 💕 (Link to blog in profile)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ahh! The review. Where to start? I loved it! However, I have to point out that I did see one episode of the TV series long before starting the book. So all through the book, I could see Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddi Siddiqui talking to me, which I have to admit, I didn't mind at all. There is nothing extra in this book, nothing unnecessary. Many a times, I started wondering why is the author telling us this. But, everything made sense. It was interesting to read something positive about Indian police, breaking so many prejudices. We do treat them as if they are some different breed, forgetting that they are mere humans, just like the rest of us. I am not much acquainted with Mumbai and I am sure I missed out a lot. The whole book was very realistic. There was only one storyline which turned dramatic in the second last chapter. I have noticed one common theme in most Indian reads, "Life goes on", probably underlining the basic Indian nature of not giving up and "adjusting" to whatever situation comes our way. And that is another reason why I love Indian books. They are so real for us, so relatable, so next-door. It's as if you know the person in the story. And it gets you attached to them. It makes you miss the characters once the book is over. It makes you sad when one of the side-kick dies for no reason at all. These stories haunt you. Always! #book #bookstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookaholic #bookobsessed #booknerd #books 📚 #booklove #bookgram #booklover #booklovers #bookreview #bookworms #nofilter #vikramchandra #sacredgames
"Human beings were stupid, they circled round and around and finally came back to where they started, as if pulled back by the steady tug of an inescapable cord." QOTD- Have you read The Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra? Or did you binge on the Netflix version? Which one you liked? I prefer the book. The details. The storyline. The plot and especially the ending. . . . . . . . #sacredgames #netflix #vikramchandra #bibliophileindia #bookstafeatures #bookstagramindia #booklove #amazonkindle #kindleindia #bookgasm #bookstagrammers #bookgram #bookgasm #bookishallure #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaholic #booksofinstagram #booknerd
Finished Vikram Chandra's Sacred Games. It's an interesting read, though a bit verbose and a tad too long. The focus is more on Ganesh Gaitonde and his life, while I would have liked to read more about Sartaj Singh. Overall, a good read. Can now watch the Netflix series and see how faithful they are to the original. Thanks to Amazon for the good deal on the Kindle edition of the book. #goodreads #sacredgames #sacredgamesnetfilx #sacredgamesbook #vikramchandra #kindle #kindlepaperwhite #amazonkindle #netflixsacredgames #netflixindia #amazon #amazonindia #bookstagram #book #booklover #booklovers #bookaddict #bookaholic
Wow what a book!!! I started reading the book after watching the first season on Netflix. And this was such a masala book with lots of swear words...gang wars....blood!!! 📚 📚 This mammoth book of more than 900 pages is a page turner crime fiction. The main characters are Sartaj Singh, the only only Sikh inspector in the whole of Mumbai and Ganesh Gaitonde, the most wanted gangster in India. 📚 📚 I'm eagerly looking forward to the season 2 of Sacred Games on Netflix, especially after reading the book. 📚 📚 From the back of the book An enormously satisfying, exciting and enriching book, Vikram Chandra's novel draws the reader deep into the lives of detective Sartaj Singh and Ganesh Gaitonde, the most wanted gangster in India. 📚 📚 Sartaj, the only Sikh inspector in the whole of Mumbai, is used to being identified by his turban, beard and the sharp cut of his trousers. But 'the silky Sikh' is now past forty, his marriage is over and his career prospects are on the slide. When Sartaj gets an anonymous tip off as to the secret hideout of the legendary boss of the G-company, he's determined that he'll be the one to collect the prize. 📚 📚 This is a sprawling, epic novel of friendships and betrayals, of terrible violence, of an astonishing modern city and its underworld. Drawing on the best of Victorian fiction, mystery novels, Bollywood movies and Vikram Chandra's years of first hand research on the streets of Mumbai, this novel reads like a potboiling page-turner but resonates with the intelligence and emotional depth of the best of literature 📚 📚 #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #bookaholic #kindlebooks #booknerd #bibliophile #bookworm #ebooklover #ebookreader #kindleaddict #unitedbookstagram #unitedbookstagramindia #bookworm #booksofinstagram #thereaderslounge #readingaddict #instaread #bookstagrammer #readersofinsta #booksandbeans #readersofinstagram #indiabookstagram #readerscosmos #readerscosmos #mumbaibookstagram #bookstafamindia #sacredgames #vikramchandra

It's not about Sartaj Singh saving Mumbai from an anticipated bombing. It's not about Ganesh Gaitonde's journey from a remote village to becoming an international don. This book is a search of one's own individuality in the history of violence. Why, you ask? You better read it and shoot your questions to me! 😉 . . . Amazing. Master Storytelling. An Epic work. #vikramchandra #sacredgames #booksandstuffsnerds #brokebibliophile #bibliophile #bookcollectors #booklovers #readstagram #readersofinstagram

In 2006 i found the first part of ‚Sacred Games‘/ ‚Der Gott von Bombay’ from Vikram Chandra in a german #bookstore . I took it with me mainly because i liked the typography of the german cover (yeah typical woman, but sometimes odd ways let find us a good book). I had the bad fortune having to wait for nearly one year until the second part got published under the title ‘Bombay Paradise’ (still wondering why they had to do that to me 🙄). But i better get to the point now. It’s the thrilling story of Inspector Sartaj Singh and the most wanted criminal of India Ganesh Gaitonde, located in the overcrowded City of Mumbai. Over around 925 pages i did read about the thoughts, motives, wishes, fears, love and life of both. About Sartaj’s struggle in a corrupt police force and his difficult feelings towards his ex wife. I dived into the brutal underworld while watching the rise of Gaitonde to the God of Mumbai. And how their lifes getting tangled up in the urgent need to prevent a big unknown catastrophe that will happen in Mumbai. I did fall in love with both vividly described characters. When you like a good written story i’m sure you will enjoy it as much as i did. This year Netflix came up with Original based on the book. I was partly disappointed because of the not so deep and complex personalities, but still found it good enough for wanting to see the next season. Im one of that readers that never get happy with the movie. So get your butt into the next bookstore or a here unnamed internet shop and get it. Let me know in the comments what you think about that wonderful book🙂😘
#sundayshelfie with a few of my go to writers - all very different from one another I know! I like to read a variety of fiction styles and genres and tend not to obsess over one author (apart from when I read 4 David Mitchell books in a row!!! Oh and Murakami has that effect on me too!) but I often come back to these writers time and again - I enjoy their worlds and getting lost in them. . . . #shelfiesunday #booknerd #bookworm #booksofinstagram #bookshelf #booklover #books #vikramchandra #faberandfaber #paolocoelho #harpercollinspublishers #kenfollett #panmacmillan #ellie_pages

SACRED GAMES- HOSPITAL SCENE No one ever expected Katekar's death. It came at us like a big tornado and then left us to deal with the destruction it caused. The makers were foreshadowing it throughout the episode by building up his character, making us feel for him. His dilemna, his anger, his frustration and then, at the final moment they swept the rug away from under us. Leaving us with a heavy heart and a death of a lovable character. . Even after the renewal for its season 2, the series is in danger again. In recent development, Varun grover, one of the writers of Sacred Games has been accused of sexual harassment under the #MeToo movement. Thereby putting the show in jeopardy. Now it's all upto Netlix. Whether they keep the series going or they decide to the pull the plug on it. . I hope they manage a way to continue this series. We already love it so much. @netflix @netflix_in please try and find a way out of this. We really need this series to improve the bar of Indian Series'. . .

Since the season 2 of Sacred Games has been put on hold, I would ask all the fans of the show to go read the book. It is much much better and you wouldn't have to wait to know what happens next! The detailing is too good, right to the sticky eye of a character as she wakes up in the morning! #bookstagram #bookworm  #bookphotography #bibliophile #booklover  #bookaddict #instareads #book  #bookblogger #instabook #reader  #bookish #bookgram #beautifulbooks  #reading #booktag  #prettybooks #coverlove #sacredgames #vikramchandra #netflix #thriller #indianauthor
These babies have to go back home to the library, even though, I think they look awfully neat in my living room. . Some days, I wish I could turn one of our public libraries into my living space. All I would need is a sleeping bag, my toothbrush, and a few changes of clothes. I would promise to be as unobstructive a houseguest as possible. . Which library do I have in mind? Toronto Reference Library I am looking at you. One of those neat study pods would do quite nicely! . The pictures of the library are not mine.

"Anger is a prolific seed,' said Sandeep to the monks. 'You can scatter it carelessly, and it will take root quickly. It will appear in cracks in your windows, it will spread across roofs, it will burst open paving stones, suddenly, it is everywhere." - Vikram Chandra, Red Earth and Pouring Rain. . I finished this one a few days back and have been putting off the review, because I was digesting the book. It's a big book, not just in terms of page count, but in content. The writing itself is dense and the material - mythology, history, different places, cultures - set my mind ablaze. . And of course, I am a sucker for frame stories. . . Would I recommend this one? Yes, I would, but only if you like a challenge. This book requires work on the part of the reader. One thing I can promise is that this one is well worth the investment of time and effort.
These two big cats are such gentlemen! They really are an inspiration. PS: My good boy pose :P @ndtv #drprannoyroy #vikramchandra

Sacred Games...... what a book.... I started reading this one after I watched Season 1 of the show on Netflix. As always the book triumphed over the screen adaptation- which is quite good. Anyway about the book.... love the scale of it....pretty well written.... loved the development arc of some characters....reading some of it was pure pleasure...definitely recommend it if you are looking for some nice read on crime... it’s not very fast paced. Vikram Chandra has dealt with some complicated parts of Indian history in a fantastic way....loved how he conveyed it through the lives of the characters... . .Definitely a must read ! -@divya.chelluri . .

I finished reading Vikram Chandra's second book - Love and Longing in Bombay, a collection of stories which are not forced upon each other to create a charismatic writing effect but it is the sheer storytelling which made me fell in love with his writing. I guess, people might not be knowing that this book beat Roy's The God of Small Things to be crowned the winner of Commonwealth Writers Prize for the Eurasia region. . . . For it's enticing storytelling, gripping narrative, and complex subplots, I recommend each one of you to read it. And, we have Sartaj Singh in this book as well who is, now a household name with Sacred Games's Netflix series. #booksandstuffsnerds #brokebibliophiles #bookhoarder #bookstagram #readstagram #loveandlonginginbombay #vikramchandra #stories #storytelling #sartajsingh #sacredgames #thegodofsmallthings #arundhatiroy #netflix #bombay #bombayreads #bombayreaders
I discovered Red Earth and Pouring Rain by Vikram Chandra through @mksreading The book is like a coupling of 1001 Nights and the Mahabharata. It's utterly fascinating and I so wish I had more time to give it. Another two weeks and my editing will be done and then there will be time enough for me to savour the things that require savouring, like good books and long walks.
Glimpses from the book review of Vikram Chandra's Sacred Games. All thanks to amazing team of @themonologuein for putting this together. #books #bookreview #SacredGames #thriller #VikramChandra
