"It is really nice to know that an alumnus of IIT is penning a book. It makes me feel joyous that the book is on mathematics and that, too, in a novel form to make it more interesting. . . . A fast-paced mystery-thriller, the book beautifully links the ancient and the modern to keep the readers thoroughly absorbed. . . . It brings out the fascinating power of maths and its history and the unique role played by religion and culture in the most entertaining and enjoyable fashion. India has had a rich tradition in mathematics since Aryabhatt’s era."

"Science, religion and crime - the perfect ingredients for a mystery thriller. Mix them with a tinge of Dan Brown's satire and Sherlock Holmes' subtle humour, and what you get is a fast-paced read called The Steradian Trail. . . . (the author) must have grilled his grey cells to invent such a page-turner."
