The Seller of Mantras
"Here, on the banks of the river Ganga, it would be so easy to drown. Or at least that's what the young man was thinking about since he was down to his last 5 rupees without the possiblity of a job or a way to pay his father back all the money he had borrowed so far. Destiny has funny ways of working itself out and as if designed by fate, a strange encounter with a strange priest completely changes his life. The only question is, can he keep up? Slightly tragic and amusing but very well written, The Seller of Mantras is one of Nergis Dalal's most unique pieces of short fiction. Read on!"
