The question of ‘what happens after death’ is what Shakuntala Hawoldar explores in this breathtaking piece of work. The author invites you to experience and live another mystical and spiritual dimension, and to submerge yourself in the deep and revealing story of ‘Nachiketas’ – the boy who had a conversation with the Lord of Death.
If you are looking for an explosive book by some kind of nerd, delving into abstract symbols, or a spiritual pundit floating in a metaphysical haze, then this book is not meant for you.
This is simply an extraordinary book by an ordinary woman who has enjoyed and suffered the dual, roller-coaster life of her daily grind.
"Shakuntala Hawoldar’s writings are poignant renderings of human struggles and sufferings in a world dominated by power, ignorance, inequality, misfortunes and psychological frailties. Her rich vocabulary and her choice of syntax mesmerize the reader into a no-mind land where self-inquiry takes over your imagination.
