A 'no' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or worse to avoid trouble -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi A-For Arjun #BlogChatterA2Z The image was taken from Thoroughly excited to reveal the protagonist of my upcoming thriller -Murder at Thampuran Kotta, as part of this year's A2Z marathon-the first of its kind I have ever undertaken. His name is Arjun Madhavan--a familiar name among Malayalam speakers. The first post would suffice to present him before you, not a hectic introduction.

If you have missed it,  please read it here . The remaining posts in this campaign are from Part-5 of my novel. The Bridge: The summary of what happened from part 1 to part 5? In the first chapter, my readers found Anand in a whirlpool of contradictions--his marriage wasn't functioning as had expected. He formulated theories like one shouldn't venture to marry a woman unless you find her well disposed towards you. He never tried to find a woman of that sort was his mistake. Having that guilt, he put maximum effort to compromise with his wife and carry forth. Until that day, she toppled their marriage, dropping the divorce bomb.  As the officer in charge of the Thampuran Kotta murder case, he worked conscientiously to bring the murderers out
