About the Book

Rivers is a saga of two rivers: one of attempted suicide and another of gradual enlightenment. It is an original and compact philosophy. The story is set in the pristine Himalayas and Mumbai. It begins with an idealistic young boy turning into a dissatisfied actor and director of art movies, filled with fears and desires. He is obsessed with himself – trying to be a light unto himself without proper initial teachings – and, suffocated by a world filled with pain and pleasure, tries to end it all by drowning himself in the first river. He doesn’t die, but instead becomes a Shunya, a zero which is nothing and everything, a man who, desiring nothing, has everything. He also becomes non-attached to everything except non-attachment; however, he only realizes the true meaning of Shunya and non-attachment, combining both the concepts to become enlightened, at the end.”
