  2. Dear Samir,
    Am glad to communicate that I liked the novel written by you. It is a fantastic and fascinating story revealing the actual meaning of KKK. It is a satire of present political, social and environmental India where people have double faces. I liked it and congrats. Keep writing such meaningful novels so that awareness in public comes through your pen.
    God bless you.
