Crossing the Mirage - Passing through Youth

 Book Profile / by BS Murthy / 99 views / Sold

If passing through youth was like crossing the mirage of life for Chandra and Nithya, it proved to be chasing the mirage of love for Sathya and Prema though for plain Vasavi, Chandra’s pitiable sibling, it was the end of the road.
As life brings Chandra, who suffers from an inferiority complex for his perceived ugliness, and Nithya, who was bogged down being jilted by Vasu, together, they script their fate of fulfillment.
And as poetic justice would have it, Sathya, who caused Prema’s heartburn, himself was led down the garden path by Kala, doing a Sathya on Sathya.
Just not that, life has in store just deserts for Vasu owing to Nithya’s retribution as he tries to stalk her.
Besides, after many a fictional twist and turn, the way the coming of age novel ends, challenges the perception that fact is stranger than fiction.

By BS Murthy

BS Murthy is an Indian novelist, playwright, short story, non-fiction 'n articles writer, translator, a 'little' thinker and a budding philosopher in ‘Addendum to Evolution: Origins of the World by Eastern Speculative Philosophy’ that was originally published in The Examined Life On-Line Philosophy Journal, Vol. 05 Issue 18, Summer 2004. Born on 27 Aug 1948 and schooled in letter-writing, he articulated his managerial ideas in thirty-odd published articles, and later he penned Benign Flame: Saga of Love, Jewel-less Crown: Saga of Life, Crossing the Mirage: Passing through youth (plot and character driven novels), Glaring Shadow: A stream of consciousness novel, Prey on the Prowl: A Crime Novel, Stories Varied: A Book of Short Stories and Onto the Stage: Slighted Souls and other stage and radio plays. His other books are Puppets of Faith: Theory of Communal Strife (novel non-fiction) and translations in verses Bhagvad-Gita: Treatise of Self-help and Sundara Kanda: Hanuman’s Odyssey. Then entering the arena of non-fiction with a ‘novel’ narrative in , possibly a new genre, he ventured into the zone of translations for versifying the Sanskrit epics, Vyasa’s Bhagvad-Gita (Treatise of self-help) and Valmiki’s in contemporary English idiom. Later, ascending Onto the Stage with Slight Souls and other stage and radio plays, he returned to fictional form with and to finally reach the short story horizon with Stories Varied - A Book of Short Stories. While all his fiction had emanated from his conviction that for it to impact readers, it should be the soulful rendering of characters rooted in their native soil but not the hotchpotch of local and alien caricatures sketched on a hybrid canvas, all his body of work was borne out of his passion for writing, matched only by his love for language. His body of work as above is in the public domain as free ebooks
