600 BC - three hundred years after the epochal Mahabharata War, which almost destroyed the entire land, India is still haunted by the shadows of the devastating conflict of the Kuru cousins. The epicenter of power has now shifted to the kingdom of Vrij, situated on the northern banks of the Ganga, ruled by an ambitious king who would stop at nothing to lay his hands on the most powerful weapon of the Mahabharata age. Soaring ambitions have once again brought the ancient civilization on the dark brink of another full-scale war. Set to change this political legacy of Ancient India is a warrior princess, guided by her destiny and a phenomenal man who lived three hundred years before her. A man who is considered God today, but whose greatest contribution lay buried below layers of ancient history. Buried below these very layers, lies the story of this warrior princess, who unraveled the mystery of His code - an eternal way to establish dharma in Bharat.

Rashmi is a legal professional in her early thirties. She is a commerce graduate, a law graduate, and a qualified company secretary. She currently heads the legal and secretarial department of an IT company in Mumbai. Rashmi has been an avid reader of ancient Indian history. She strongly feels that history textbooks are dry and limited versions of exciting stories, which should be excavated and brought to young readers. Her fascination with an amazing event of ancient Indian history which took place in 600 BCE and its intriguing connection with the Mahabharata war, led
her to write her debut novel, The Rigveda Code. Rashmi stays in Mumbai with her husband, Lalit, her three‐year‐old son, Sohum, and her
in‐laws, Maya and Mohan.
