Notion Press publishes Vinay Capila's book Riding a Tiger
Speaking on these lines is renowned author Vinay Capila's new book Riding a Tiger. The author speaks about the growing suppression by Hindutva leaders in the country. Irked by the issues prevailing in the country owing to the Hindutva ideology, the author pens down the story of two friends who get influenced by the ideology and join the cadre of Right-wing ideologues.
This later brings them into the foray of politics, and soon the two are found sitting in positions of power. The transition of the two friends from Hindutva workers to men with power makes them arrogant. They lose sight of their purpose and indulge in hiring illiterate men to subjugate people who do not agree with the Hindutva ideology.
What happens next will forms the narrative and ideological twist in the story. "The best part of the novel is that the author tries to weave his fiction into the current scenario. With the characters and the plot resembling the current affairs of the country, every reader will be able to relate with the story," believes Vinay Capila.
