IANS  |  Mumbai 

An unusual fictional romantic novel, "When the Chief in Love: Kashmiriyat, Jamhooryiat, Insaniyat.. Hindustaniyat," has sparked a guessing game on its underlying political message, its Tuhin A. said here on Tuesday.

Scheduled to be released on February 14, unveiled the name and cover through and kicked off a raging debate on the content and possibly, a political message, since he is the Bharatiya Janata Party's

"The slogan - aKashmiriyat, Jamhooriyat, Insaniyat' was first coined by then in 2003 and it struck an instant chord with the people of Jammu & By adding 'Hindustaniyat' to the original slogan, I hope a new perspective is given to the burning issue (of J&K) in the present context," told IANS.

Giving a sneak peek into the storyline, said it revolved around the life and travails of Vihaan Shastri, India's who comes under attack after 20 soldiers are killed during a terror strike in Jammu &

While the country bays for bloody revenge, Shastri battles a strange distraction: Zaira Bhat, the woman he once loved, who suddenly returns to his life after 12 years, amidst a web of extraordinary situations and twisted quirks of fate.

The unfolding scenario is indeed extraordinary and sensitive -- for, he is the country's defence minister, and his long-lost love Zaira is the daughter of none other than the reviled Bilal Mohammad Bhat, Jammu & Kashmir's leading and most wanted, Pro-Pakistani separatist leader.

"The plot revolved around whether Shastri is capable of pulling off this adouble coup -- can he win the love of his life and also save Jammu & which is on the edge," said.

Sinha's ninth book in his writing career which started in 2006, "When the Chief in Love" (246 pages) is published by Fingerprint Publishing.
