Frustrated Fuse - Spy Thriller Novel











India is a country of over a billion people. Unity in diversity was supposed to be guiding principle of independent India. However in practice, there is no unity but only diversity. People are divided over issues like religion, state, caste, sub-caste, etc. But there is one very strong factor that unites all Indians. It is insecurity and fear caused by terrorists that cuts across all the layers of society and is spread evenly from top to bottom. While terrorists roam freely and safely amongst us, it is the common man struggling with his day to day life who has additional burden of safety to worry about. This fear is aggravated by inaction of spineless and corrupt government. Recent blasts in Mumbai (aka Bombay) have brought out hollowness of government’s promise of security. Instead of ensuring our security, government is busy telling us that such things happen. I bet most of us have felt the feeling of frustration and helplessness when such incidents occur. May Lord help us all.

This spy thriller is a story of a young man who got frustrated by acts of terror and decided to play his part to try and stop such attacks against India and Indian interests across the globe. Was he successful? Did he die in vain? I don’t know, because I have not finished the story yet. I’ll be writing it in bits and pieces and will try to be regular. Bouquets and brick-bats will be equally welcome and your suggestions are very valuable to me. Right now I have named my work of fiction as Frustrated Fuse, I am open to suggestions for a better name.

  2. Dear Shera,

    I can understand how you feel about our neighbouring country. But please mind your language. I am forced to remove your comment for foul language used. If you have anything to say, please use parliamentary language to communicate it.

  7. Shukriya. I really thought that problems we are facing need to be highlighted. Not to mention the sacrifices our boys and girls make every single day to protect us.

  11. 2 post per week? That is extremely difficult bordering on near impossible. At least for me. Problem is that I need to research each and every step and make sure that it can be related to real world. Fiction does not mean that I go into a world of fantasy. Slower frequency is the price I need to pay for accuracy. I hope you understand my situation. :)
