My Sister, the Serial Killer- the name made me pick up the book as soon as came across it. And I had very high hopes from it. The cover page did not reveal a lot about the story and I had to rely on the interesting title to plunge into it right away. And I am glad I did. I was hooked to it right from the word go.

Kanha, Krishna, Murlimanohar, Radhyeshyam, Gopal, Madhav…..many names and many forms. One can never get tired of his stories in various forms that he took to deliver his followers from the cruel Kansa. Children and grownups are equally fond of leelas of Krishna.
The debut novel by Pranab Mullick is yet another attempt to retell the story of “Kansa Vadh” (killing Kansa) to liberate the people of Mathura from his tyrannous rule, albeit in a different way. In this mythological fiction, the author has woven a unique tale on the background of a commonly known legend from a part of Krishna’s life. Some parts are well-known and well-accepted while some imaginary characters and instances are added to create a new compelling storyline.
