Happy Republic Day! A new series begins... Independent India has faced many threats from within and without. Most of them have been thwarted thanks to the courage, skills and intellect of the men and women who serve in our military and intelligence organisations. But sometimes, our enemies win. In the aftermath of the 26/11 attacks, a deep-cover black ops agency was created to eliminate threats from within - anarchist death cults, vicious double agents, traitorous political cabals, clandestine terror cells and dangerous puppets of enemy states. Only 3 things are known about this secretive organisation: Their agents are deployed as a trio -  a stealthy intelligence operative, a lethal special forces soldier and a cunning field commander. Their motto is ‘Death to our enemies’. In classified logs they are referred to as 'Trishul'. This podcast is rated R 18+.

Part 2 -  Finale  His schoolyard bully is now his brother-in-law. His sister’s tormentor. The reason for his parent’s tears. But he is not going to cower like he once did on the playgrounds and classrooms of his primary school. He will act to protect his loved ones. He is willing to commit murder! But there are whispered tales about his nemesis.  Stories of blood magic and shape shifting. Surely, they are lies.  Fables dreamt up by townspeople with too much time on their hands. He is about to learn the truth on this road trip to hell. This podcast is rated R 18+. It may contain classifiable elements such as violence, sex scenes and drug use that are high in impact.

Mike Davis, editor of The Lovecraft Ezine and horror writer Pete Rawlik talk about the 'King in Yellow' mythos in an episode specially recorded for Indian Noir listeners. Discussion questions: Qn1. Mike what are your thoughts on why the King in Yellow mythos still fascinates modern horror writers?  Qn 2. What do you think are some of the themes in the King in Yellow mythos that resonate with you?  Qn 3. The late Joe Pulver is perhaps one of the best known editors in the field, who dedicated his life to editing and writing King in Yellow mythos tales. And I know you were close friends with him. I was wondering if you could please talk a bit about his contributions to enhancing the legacy of Chambers' original tale?  Q4. You edit the influential Lovecraft ezine and your youtube interviews with modern horror greats, which is also available as a podcast, which I will link to in the show notes, are legendary. Do you think we are entering a golden era of horror and how do you think the horror fiction scene will evolve in the near future?  Q5. Given the recent turn of events in the world, do you think we are already in Carcosa? Sure feels like it to me.

Part 6 -  Finale Dedicated to Joseph S. Pulver Sr. (July 5, 1955 – April 24, 2020). Eminent Indian translator Tarak Shah is mourning the disappearance of his son. Vipul was backpacking through Rajasthan when he vanished without a trace. The single father is in the grip of devastating grief. Holed up in his house with a whiskey bottle for company, haunted by visions of a man in tattered robes and a pallid mask, Tarak is a shadow of his former self. When sleep comes, he finds himself in the grip of a night terror that takes him to an eerie city on the banks of a lake; its visage radiating malevolence under a sky filled with black stars. Then, he receives a message from Vipul requesting his presence at Bhangarh Fort. Compelled by a desire to see his son, Tarak will make the trip. He will soon find out that there are places in the world where the taint of evil runs so deep, there is no escaping its maddening resonance. This podcast is rated R 18+.

I had a very different assumption about horror and thriller podcasts before. But this show and Nikesh changed that. As soon as I started listening this podcast I was totally immersed and binged watched multiple episodes at once. The easily consumable format makes it more bingy. Most importantly the writing is superb and how can I not mention the gripping voice performance by Nikesh. You got yourself another fan sir. Thanks for producing this amazing podcast.
