KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (June 13, 2012) PR NewsChannel — E. S. Shankar writes about what is common knowledge of corruption in Southeast Asia through a literary fiction novel, “Tiger Isle: A Government of Thieves.” Shankar shows how racism and religious extremism are also exploited for political gain.
The author brings awareness to these issues through the characters and incidents in “Tiger Isle.” As he uses heroines to be the champions of the voiceless throughout the many countries in Southeast Asia, Shankar also demonstrates their strength as they fight to save the 30 million inhabitants of Tiger Isle from annihilation.
Shankar believes his topic, along with the recent Arab Spring uprisings in the Middle East and the rise of opposition in Parliaments in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand and countries in that region, will give his book an edge over others on similar subjects. He hopes the novel will educate readers around the world on life changing situations happening in Southeast Asia.
“The situation is compelling and widespread enough to warrant exposure and to warn the world of the dangers of the evil regimes that exist in Southeast Asia,” Shankar says. “This is probably one of the few modern books written in English where the story is based in Southeast Asia with two ladies as heroines.”
“Tiger Isle: A Government of Thieves” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
