The Last Chai: Bringing the Nation to a Halt by Varun T – Book Review

The Last Chai: Bringing the Nation to a Halt

BY: VARUN T

Synopsis:

The year is 2019. 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’. 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?
