Description

Dissecting the complexities of living under a spiritual microscope, The Fakir follows Rudra, a hippie ripe with plans of suicide whose sudden rescue of an old man who strikingly resembles Sai Baba lends to a contemplative relationship of excavating truths and mysteries related to life.

Summary Of The Book

Rudra doesn’t love anything and is in fact much in need of spiritual or medical help. He is a hippie inclined to live out of haversacks in small and dingy hotels and swigging down malt whiskey. However, this young man finds that everything in his life is changed due to a chance encounter. While driving along the highway, he comes upon an old man lying in a pool of his own blood. In a moment of conscientiousness that the traffic around him doesn’t bother to acknowledge, he rushes forward to the old man’s aid. There and then in an embrace, Rudra notes the resemblance this man shares with the Shirdi Sai Baba.

The novel is an empathetic symbol of spirituality and life as the old man makes the hapless protagonist realize several truths about the metaphysics of the world. The dialogues that are written between the sage and disciple are at the heart of this novel and Bharucha brings a fascinating narrative to life.

Karma, divinity, praying, and spirit communication among the broader entities of faith, forgiveness, and energy are all demystified to both the lay reader and the hippie. Most importantly, this book dwells upon the antenna that connects every individual to its master and how the act of goodness is necessary to inculcate a more attuned relationship with that figure of authority.

The book stretches across the length of mysticism and spirituality and Bharucha triumphs in his use of symbolism and generosity.

The Fakir is the opening installment of a trilogy and was published in 2007. It received rave reviews and was the fourth book in top Indian best selling lists.

Seven Stars, Not Five..

I came across this book by chance on Facebook. Little did i know when i bought it, that i would identify so much of my life with it. More so 'coz i am someone who has always believed that 'the One who makes the thunder roar, also hears a butterfly sigh'. I truly feel five stars is a tad too little for a book that is so well written, hence i couldn't help but add two stars of my own. If life ever gives me a chance i would love to meet the author personally and thank him for having written this...

Great book...Worth Reading...Indian Paulo Cohelo

Very good book, it seems that the writer has his own spiritual experience of high level.
Also the style of putting the important part/quote of the chapter in the footnote is very good. So later after finishing the book one can go through these footnotes also to get zist.

I auther's writing style reminds me of Paulo Cohelo and the indian background seems so good in this kind of philosophical book. I like Paulo Cohelo's all books so if you like Paulo Cohelo books then you must read The Faki...

Amazingly Excellent Book

It is very engrossing and the author has a very very good sense of humour. Many times it gives a chill up in the spine... This book clarifies so many questions on Theory of Karma, like all siddhas do... Thanks to Mr. Ruzbeh for writing such a wonderful book.

Fiction which sounds authoritative - not recommended for anyone who is seriously looking for an answer.

The book starts like a movie and contains various cut scenes where audience get to use their creativity to connect the pieces, but the pieces never fully completes and it is left to the audience to hypothesize - which I find interesting but I was not expecting in this book.

The book revolves around a melancholic man and his encounter with a fakir, the author has tried to present the fakir as Saibaba in various context but has done a miserable job.

The book also tries to cover some philosoph...

Good to Read !!

I got this book when it was really a tough time for me. It was a challenging period of my life, but reading this book (5-6) pages in the morning used to make my day. I got some really positive vibes after reading this book. I got strength to patiently wait for the results of my good work and not get depressed with the failures. The language is good and efficient. Have already ordered other books from the same author as well.
