Chronux – Book Synopsis
I have been working as a faculty for History, Philosophy and Political Science with Symbiosis International University, Pune for the last 7 years and have researched and lectured extensively on these subjects. Understanding history through the art of storytelling has always been my passion and this has helped me immensely in compiling this book, which even though a work of fiction, is based on extensive research.
The biggest U.S.P of this novel is that it centers on an absolutely unique idea of having “Time”, play the role of the protagonist. What if “time” gains sentience and becomes aware of its own existence? The story speaks of how “time” has sought to manipulate others, throughout human history, into replacing itself.
The book kicks off in 3067 B.C. in a small Himalayan Village, where a primitive society is suddenly visited by a mysterious being, who claims to be from the far flung future and who possesses forbidden knowledge. This being, through his interactions, manages to generate enough curiosity among the villagers to get one of them to fall for the ultimate trap. Little do the villagers realize that this being is “time” itself, and thus set off a cycle of deception and deceit that flows through human civilization, from the remote past….through World War II….and even into the distant future.
Throughout the novel are exotic and graphic descriptions of locations and events across the world that form part of the narrative. The entire novel is divided into six ‘episodes’, with the entire plot coming together at the end.
Episode One focuses on the events in 3067 BC, where the story kicks off, when a young man named Bhrataha from the tiny Himalayan village of “Aruhu”, is offered the promise of unlimited power and takes the bait…..only to fall into the “Chronux Trap”!
In Episode two, Bhrataha now trapped by the power of Chronux, witnesses events from 3000 AD, and the far future, when Planet Earth faces an apocalyptic Invasion, from across the Galaxy. This offers him some key insight into the nature of “Chronux”……and also reveals the identity of the mysterious being, who appeared to his people. Now the unwilling bearer of the “Chronux Curse”, Bhrataha lays an elaborate snare that works its way through two thousand years of human history, searching for its next victim! It is an extremely tantalizing offer…….one that will ultimately be taken up……by the Nazis!
Episode Three, Four and Five focus on a desperate and thrilling expedition undertaken by Nazi Germany to Tibet, in 1939. in search of the Lost City of Shambhala. Through this, a fictional Nazi researcher named Friedrich Gustav delves into Hindu, Buddhist and Occult mysticism in the search for lost technologies of the ancient world, little realizing that he is being sucked into the greatest quagmire of all time……Bhrataha’s “Chronux Trap”!
Episode Six is where all the threads come together, in the year 1945, when an impossible experiment to control “time” goes horribly wrong and the shocking phenomenon called “Chronux” is finally revealed.
