Who was She?

She was a woman whose intense love of god consumed her to such a degree that she abandoned her traditional role as wife and mother. She came form one of India’s foremost families the much revered Tagore’s. She was beautiful talented and highly creative. She was a gifted artist and had an extraordinary voice but had no interest in pursuing a career. Her entire life was a personal struggle between her quest for god and the demands of family life. She was mysterious and mystical unconventional and detached. At the same time there was something deeply moving and extraordinary about her and her complete submission to the Divine Madness.

A daughter compelling account of being a witness to the profound inner changes that her mother goes through this is the story of two women and the spiritual paths they close to take in life. While those paths were different and at times divergent they came together in uniquely compelling ways. The charting of the relationship with all its joys and conflicts the loss and the pain and ultimately the healing and reconciliation mirrors the relationship of so many mother and daughters.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
