Genre_ theological thriller.
A book that talks of the missing years of Christ. His supposed visit to India and Kashmir. The book leans strongly on Dan Brown’s Da Vinci code. It is written along the same lines, playing Kho-kho.

Past life regression, secret societies etc.
We are in US, –Kho– off to Japan—kho –the Christian mythology – kho—the pre church mythology—kho—Hinduism – kho – Buddhism – kho—Gnostic gospels – kho – priory the Sion – kho – Opus Dei – divine feminine – kho – kho—kho and game over.
There is no clear-cut protagonist. Except maybe the documents of the descendents of Christ, and the a document by a Portuguese inquisition chief to prove that Christ was not crucified by died peacefully at Kashmir.
If one was to believe Sanghi , then Kashmir is filled with expart Jews from the era of Christ. He works round the Christ-Krishna connection. He stretches St.Thomas and his work in Kerala. Suddenly he goes to northeast India.
Overall a good read as long as one is able to keep track of the skeletal story line.
