‘This is the year 2100 AD and your body is 130 years old’

I realized the doctor was talking to me. He went on. ‘Murphy had entered the hospital with a routine request to archive his brain. But someone messed up and Murphy’s brain has been damaged beyond repair. The hospital had no choice but to transplant another brain. The best match we could get came from India. So, your brain came from Hari who died in 2005 AD and your brain was stored safely in India for the last 95 years.


I looked at the mirror. The reality was slowly beginning to dawn on me ‘I, a small town Indian mind . . . now have a Caucasian body’. 


The doctor went on ‘While you think as ‘Hari’ and have all the memories of ‘Hari,’ the rest of the world sees you as ‘Murphy’.


Utterly confused and nervous, I set foot into the unknown world of the 22nd century, very intimidated at first, but soon fascinated by how technology has changed every aspect of daily life.    


Welcome to - the T axis – where the lines blur between body, brain and soul. The book takes you on a thrilling journey of 22nd century with all its scientific and lifestyle advancements, as seen through the eyes of ‘Hari’. It transports you to an era where it is routine to live over 130 years with artificial heart and organs, archive human memory, perform remote robotic surgery, ride in elevated tubes and cover a whole city with a roof. While weaving an ordinary man’s journey through amazing scientific and lifestyle changes of the 22nd century, the author weaves a gripping narrative that is awe inspiring, yet very believable.

This review is from: the T axis (Kindle Edition)
Gripping and thought provoking novel. The 'future' is thrilling but it appears entirely plausible. The book leaves you with a lot of interesting imagination about the future.

Looking forward to the possibility of a promising sequel depicting Hari overcome life's many obstacles as he arrives in India in search of his family. Incredible, yet plausible. Hope to see Sekhar conquer even greater heights!!
