The book was re-written, illustrated and designed by him in 2009. It is a narrative based in the Kamakura period (around 13th century) in Japan. Amidst the political transitions, civil feuds between clans, attacks from the Mongols and the rise of Buddhism; the fallen evil supernatural forces are rejuvenated and are gradually making their existence felt. But someone has to stand as the saviour. Its the fight of goodness against the dark forces, as two teenagers Daiichi and Dido seek reprisal, eventually beginning their journey to bring back joy to their land. Ninjas are the literary heroes of todays world. Ninjas, during the feudal times were associated with the unorthodox style of warfare, which included sabotage, espionage, scouting and assassination. The ninjas in this tale did use the said methods, but for the betterment and set a benchmark. Thats why they are the Modern Ninjas.
