Indian literature, for a long time, had glimpses of the ancient Indian concept and mythologies. This close tie-up has come to the writings of the present day writers too. Sapan Saxena, the writer, coming from the field of IT has come up with his novel, ‘Finders, Keepers’ which makes a bridge between Indian mythology and science. Under the veil of a mystery novel, Sapan transcends the reader’s minds into the close proximity of the questions related to the historical events and tends to offer food for though to the ever wondering minds of the readers.

Story starts with the death of Professor Antriksh Varma, who happens to be one of the nine guardians to the one ancient secret. Before his death Antriksh tries to find a probable protector of the secret so that it doesn’t fall into the hands of the wrong persons. Soumik Haldar and Ishan Vajpayee becomes the two seekers of the mystery of these trail of deaths and reaches an unexpected turn. The  mysteries, coded directions and a parallel discussion over the different gods and goddesses of Indian Mythology(which of course is a part of the story itself) makes the readers glued to the pages.

Sapan offered a very interesting story, where not only the plot but the atmosphere and the scenario the plot is based in, becomes the primal focus too. Some simple yet very confusing questions are asked in the different parts of the book which are related to the famous historical figures which is mind boggling. At the same time Sapan brings the field of conflict between the shaiva and baishnava. Not only that these many folded spheres thrill the readers but also creates interest towards their own spiritual and traditional roots, which is even more important.
