9781514700808: Triumph & Defeat (Shaitan Wars) (Volume 4)

Alpha Shaitan had been won, but tidings of a greater battle loomed in front of Humanity. The incredibly large fleet spotted approaching Beta Shaitan signified an existential crisis for humans. It is when faced with such daunting odds, staring at the face of defeat, the best of human inventiveness and courage emerges. The threat of the Hadean fleet was thwarted by the collective efforts of many such inventive and courageous humans, aided in no small measure by a massive blunder on part of the Shaitans. There were two big breaks that the humans would get in their war efforts. The first was a very conventional break in terms of a final parting gift that the Ka-Let gave the humans. It was a piece of technology that would help humans tilt the balance of the war just enough in their favour to give them an advantage in every encounter they had with the Shaitans. The second break was a very unconventional one. It was something that the human species had evolved very specifically to exploit, a weapon about which the Shaitans had no conception or foil. Together these twin advantages would help the humans slowly turn the tide in their favour, start winning the war. It would take a long grind and many decades, but the humans would start prevailing in world after world of the Shaitans. When the humans reach the final world of the Shaitans on the other end of their empire, they discover something terrible. They say that there is light at the end of the tunnel. For the humans it turns out to be darkness at the end of light! Just as the humans win the war against the Shaitans, what should have been the final triumph turns into the biggest defeat in human history!

About the Author:

Sudipto was born a year before humans first set foot on the moon. He has felt cheated all his life that his generation is not roaming across the solar system as was the promise at that time. He has gone about his life stuck on earth, doing mundane things like earning a degree in Computer Science & Engineering, and as if that wasn't mundane enough going ahead and getting a Masters in Business Administration to seal his fate of leading an ordinary life as an earthling. He has tried to extract a measure of revenge from the society for robbing him of his space adventures, rightfully due to his generation, by turning entrepreneur a few times and unleashing his products on the society. He has started up a software product company, an e-commerce company and a mobile application studio at various times during his career, while being a corporate slave in the interregnum. He has tried to fill the void left by the unfulfilled promise to his generation with his rock guitar and his books, traveling in his mind not just in space, but in time both future and past. In the later part of his life the void has been further filled by his family consisting of his wife and two daughters. Golf has also tried to fill the void, but it just can't find enough space left over after the family. Sudipto lives with his family in New Delhi, and would love to hear from you.
