Seven spellbinding stories, one audacious goal. Transforming Indians to Transform India takes its first, bold step through this compilation of short stories which explore seven different dimensions of the human personality which, when honed, will birth a complete citizen and with him, a new society. The first story lights the spark of patriotism in the reader. The next three stories delve into the physical, emotional and intellectual aspects of the individual person, empowering him to grow into a well-balanced human being, ready to serve his nation. The final three stories expound on culture, spirituality and universal outlook – aspects that characterize a civilized person and an advanced society. As a collection, the stories transform the reader into a truly cosmopolitan citizen who can see beyond borders – both in his personal life and in his vision of society.

The elders had said, at the turn of time, when darkness turns two shades darker, the winds of change would begin to blow. It is at that darkest hour that THE ONE will arrive to lift the veil of darkness and light the fire of transformation. For years, people had waited for the prophecy to come true. Around street corners, at the local chai shop, in the parliament house and during dinner parties…stories of THE ONE had been whispered from trembling lips to anxious ears. Everyone had heard, but only the faithful believed. There had been many hoaxes in the past, but this time, the feeling was different. Who is THE ONE who has come to transform India? Do you want to find out?

Quest for the Unseen

As they struggle to decode each mysterious clue they come across, they find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into spiritual waters. A few wrong turns and dead-ends later, the pressure gets to the team. Siya starts to wonder if there’s more to the game than meets the eye. Either way, the hunt is on.
Imaginary Roots, Imaginary Routes
Sometimes, a chance meeting might just turn your life around. Waiting for a ferry at Fancy Bazaar Ghat in Guwahati, Assam, strangers become acquaintances. And by the time the ferry reaches Peacock Island, acquaintances become thick friends. We look at everyone we meet through a certain lens, but some people we meet alter the very lens through which we look at life. We are all but co-travellers in the journey of life. We each have different roots, and different routes. But along the way, we bump into each other; we might share a smile, maybe a good conversation. But then, we must be on our way again, for there is more to see, more to learn, and much, much more to grow.
