Whispers of Time’ witnesses three generations in the author’s long life of ninety years in which she found a great difference. If the first was too strict and severe in clinging hard to traditions, the second had softened down to new values of love and helpfulness. In a way it was a beautiful world of togetherness. But this world soon dwindles into a world of selfishness and deceit. The series of events are developed in a powerful manner that makes the novel both real and revealing.

Speaking at the launch, Dr. Krishna Saksena says about ‘Whispers of Time’, “In my last 3 generations, I witnessed the importance of money and how money rules the world. Through this book, I have tried to explain how cutting the throat of others and living a life of outward show and grand style is the fashion of today and I believe this book will be a practical eye-opener for the young generation.”

 

Commenting on the book, Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani said, ‘’The book is a manifesto of women hood. You speak nonchalantly about the discrimination between a son and a daughter but you are not sad about it, you write in a way that says the daughter is waiting for the day when she is able to prove herself. The book is able to wrap regression with laughter; this shows the beauty of the writer’s skill and makes it distinguishable from others. I just hope we come together again on your 100th year Krishnaji to celebrate yet another book and yet another success.’’
