'TOKE ' remembered me the story ' Mark of Vishnu '

The book titled 'TOKE ' remembered me the story ' Mark of Vishnu ' written by Kushwanth Sing .For me, its a  story on the belief and superstitions of Indians and how when these superstitions are put to practical test, they backfire- at times fatally.A good book, written in the usual Kushwant Singh style. Simple to read and understand, but holds a deep meaning which requires patience to understand. I first heard the short story in my school days . English teacher narrated the story in his own style ( live-less and having no emotions in his face , that made me angry towards him) . After that I read this book in my graduation days. It was a story of a illiterate and superstitious brahmin used to fed snakes in the name lord vishnu. Ironically at the last part of the story this brahmin got bitten by the above told snake and died soon.

Toke , the fiction by Jugal Mody is highly techie because he used to say computer jargons. Its quiet interesting to read this book. BoVine island remembered me of the V-mark , the brahmin used to put on his forehead.

Any way the book is quiet interesting to me......
