An intriguing tale

Captivating! The book takes one brilliantly through Bangladesh to India to Himalayan terrain. The title remains inexplicable until half way through the read. That is where one fathom out why ‘the journey begins’. ? Intriguing, it keeps one hooked throughout. What appears inconsequential in the beginning turned out to be the key by the end. The story revolves around an old man, his grandson, a seeker and the elixir of life.

A definitive page turner and a must read.
