Actually the thought generated while pursuing my B Tech in BIT Mesra. Those days, my sister would ask me to narrate a story whenever I was at home.
One day, I had nothing except for narrating a self-scripted story. That day, my sister told I have the potential of being a good story teller.�
Pandey’s debut fiction novel ‘Resonance’ is a fast-paced thriller which revolves around a man, Imran Shah Malik, who is on a mission to cause a catastrophe of biblical proportions. Imran, a soldier of Pakistani Army, fought the 1971 war between India and Pakistan.
He is taken as Prisoner of War (POW) in India and put in Alipur Jail in Calcutta. Later, he isn�t returned to Pakistan as per the Shimla agreement but handed over to Mukti Bahini of Bangladesh which took advantage of his captivity, tortured him and forced him to reveal the strategic locations of Pakistani army.
The man being a patriot refused to divulge details. After a torturous treatment for five years he escapes and makes his way to Pakistan, where he is reinitiated in Pakistani army. In Pakistan, he rises to become the chief of ISI (Inter State Intelligence) and takes a pledge to avenge the wrongs done to him. He plans a vengeance of an unimaginable scale.
The book is woven with many instances of technology and much theorised concepts of Physics. The book mentions some unimaginable technological methods being used by intelligence agencies as well as terrorist groups for communication. There are numerous ways terrorist organisations communicate with each other.
Phone calls, emails or text messages are a few easily traceable ones. Then there is also another method, which is unheard, unique yet simple. An email account is used for communication without actually sending an email, which otherwise runs the risk of being traced.
As an uncomplicated trick, one party saves the message in drafts of the email account for the other party to read and leave a reply at the same place. Thus, a communication is facilitated between terror groups, escaping the risk of being caught.
