TIJARAS MYSTERY CODES BY HEMMA MYER SOOD
Tijara’s Mystery Codes is intriguingly interwoven with three timelines that are set apart by millennia, yet inextricably linked by a dark secret of the mystical Amrita. The first timeline portrays the historical Kurukshetra battle where the Kaurava and the Pandava cousins fought ruthlessly for their ancestral kingdom. Tijara’s ancestors sided with the Kauravas and fought against the mighty Pandavas. The second timeline elucidates Rao Raja Balwant Singh’s stalwart efforts in building the majestic Tijara Fort Palaces in 1835. He was continually threatened by subterfuge and treachery. The third timeline is in 1977 and depicts the Maharaj plans to decipher primordial papyruses, covertly safeguarded over the centuries. The papyruses describe the formulation of the Amrita, a potent anti-ageing elixir.
Mythology says that immortality was granted during the Samudra Manthan. But is there another lore to this great elixir of life? Is there a formula that can help create the Amrita in modern times?
