This unique novel explores the world of religious conversion without actually condemning any particular religion. Set in the 1990s, the story travels to many countries including India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Spain, Canada, and Sri Lanka. It delves into the philosophies of several religions while entwining an interesting story of adventure and love. Many of its predictions made two years ago when first published in Tamil are now playing out in the Middle East.
The recent developments in Iraq and Syria, and the worldwide ramifications including events in France, Egypt and Mali bear testimony to the deep understanding of the historico-political landscape described in the novel.
With religious proselytizing becoming a major issue in India, this novel is a must read for the discerning Indian reader.
