Losing My Religion by Vishwas Mudagal

Entrepreneurship is the buzz word of this age. Everybody wants to be their own boss; they want to revolutionize the world with their ideas. But being an entrepreneur is not an easy task, and every entrepreneur knows this. The company that you start always demands your undivided attention. But sometimes, even this isn’t sufficient. The company fails to succeed, and the sense of defeat wears & tears you and burns you out. Vishwas Mudagal’s “Losing My Religion” is about this serious issue – burnout, facing many youngsters today.

“At times you have to lose your faith in something, be absolutely stone-cold broke in your belief, so that you can take the jump. Leap out of the existence you have wrapped around yourself and take the plunge without thinking of the consequences. You’ll fall, no doubt. But sometime during that, you’ll witness a miracle taking shape around you. That’s called losing my religion.”

When gamer and entrepreneur Rishi Rai sets out to revolutionize the gaming industry, something somewhere goes terribly wrong and, like dominoes, the blocks of his life fall down one after the other. An unexpected meeting with Alex, an unpredictable, crazy American hippie, changes his life forever, as he decides to quit everything and join him on an unplanned, uncharted journey across India. 
From getting irrepressibly high in the mysterious Malana Valley in the Himalayas to starting a shack on the bewitching Om Beach on the West Coast, they do it all. But their adrenaline-charged adventure takes a turn when Rishi meets Kyra, a beautiful and enigmatic gamer. As passions surge and sparks fly, Rishi gets drawn to Kyra . . . unaware of who she is and where she comes from.

What follows next is something nobody could have ever dreamed of . . .Who is Kyra and why are the paparazzi after her? Can Rishi connect the dots in his life to protect the love of his life? While the world becomes a spectator, can he mastermind the fall of a ruthless giant to become a global icon or will he become the biggest loser.

The plot is beautifully crafted, the story unravels in a coherent format. The characters of all the three protagonists are well written, each being given the importance and the depth that they require to make an impression. The language is really good. Racy, unpredictable, romantic, and inspiring, this is a novel that is bound to get you addicted and stay with you forever. There are a number of twists and turns and edgy incidents that follow and will certainly keep the reader glued to the book.

The book is being called a masterpiece and has received a huge fan following for it’s story, characters, style of writing and the underlying message. It’s what we call the blockbuster novel of 2014!
Vishwas doesn’t make you feel that this is his debut work, and his storytelling is splendid and remarkable.

Generous blurbs are a first-rate promotion for any book, but they have been grossly misused in recent times. And as a result I have become a bit wary of them. But the two pages of blurb in “Losing My Religion” are totally justified. Believe me, this is one debut book which shouldn’t be missed.
