Vinod Shankar Nair’s debut thriller

Contemporary Indian authors are very different from their Indian classic counterparts and have created a niche of their own among home-bred readers. Another relevant and frequent aspect that has been seen in many such authors is their commitment to contemporariness and discussing the social, political and emotional disappointments that’s plaguing the world at the moment. Debutant author Vinod Shankar Nair, with his book titled Pride of Lions, gives out all the signs of belonging in this very same league.

Pride of Lions is a taut thriller, which is gritty and fast paced. The story starts with students in a classroom questioning the basis of pride in their country, given today’s scenario of corruption and inefficiency. Their debate is cut short when the theater abruptly shifts to a fierce gun battle raging between two equally determined sides on a seemingly obscure war-ravaged mountain top. It is a soul-stirring love story of brotherhood, courage and passion. Something that is rarely seen, especially in Indian writing, is that Vinod Shankar Nair praises the enemy at several stages and gives them the same platform as the heroes of the war are given; clearly pointing out that life consists of grey patches as well.
