About the Author

Tabrik C is a political enthusiast, perfumer and internet entrepreneur. He has a post-graduate degree in History from St. Stephen’s College Delhi, where he was the president of the student’s union. His special interest lies in observing, analyzing, predicting and debating the rise and fall of political personalities and their influence on the destiny of nations and individuals.

The Cover Speaks

The front cover shows a man in dark walking alone on the street, with the silhouette of trees enshrouding the sun. The caption says, "You can't outrun fate...". The back cover carries the Rashtrapati Bhawan with Sepia effect adding a dusky tinge.


India has a new Prime Minister but is Siddhartha Tagore the product of his genius or of his dangerous mind? 

India is on edge, as a subversive internal revolt against the Constitution and the threat of Jehadi terror of an unthinkable level, are looming on the horizon.

 Ringing Shivas damaru in and out of Parliament, a sudden turn of karma catapults outsider Siddhartha Tagore – a conflicted genius, music maestro and prodigal son, with forceful views on China and Pakistan into national prominence as the head of the Opposition Alliance and finally as the newly elected Prime Minister of a disturbed nation.

But buried secrets are being resurrected and threaten to expose the past. Twisted within the double helix of menacing politics and hidden lust, Prisoner, Jailor, Prime Minister is a scorching account of Siddhartha Tagores fascinating journey from Harvard to 7 Race Course Road.

Book Review

The story revolves around the protagonist Siddhartha Tagore, present Prime Minister who struggles with his position. As you will read the story, you will understand the actual meaning of the title of the book, why Prisoner, why Jailor?

I will refrain from disclosing the plot of the story. Since the author has impeccably scripted this thriller setting a new milestone in this genre, breaking the contemporary most-reads bounds, I will urge the readers to check out themselves what new Tabrik has written for them. He imprisons you in his pages so calmly that you get lost in his twists and turns. The story vacillates between past and present, between politics and love, between characters and the suspense. I thank Tabrik for bypassing the stories-in-vogue and coming up with a fresh plunge dabbling the readers in thrill.

In a Nutshell

This book with its thriller twists makes you turn the pages one after the another. It is not just a political thriller but a tale of love and lust which will bind you till the end. It will refresh you for sure.
