About the Book

Big Bappa is an extremely exciting fictional novella in which the author writes in first person, describing himself as an aspiring writer whose Muse has betrayed him; he transports us into the quaint locale of 'Pen', to discover from its past, a real-life story with the hues of a myth ...

Vinayak Pandit, a complete rebel, an artist and mystic, sculpts Ganesha idols, depicting them in ways that are as unusual as they are radical. His unconventional methods in the pursuit of a unique philosophy give a message that imprints on the heart indelibly. He reminds us of Van Gogh, who was a painter, deviant and messiah, all rolled into one. Through the story of this man, the author creates a fresh perspective for the reader to look at idol-worship. The life of Vinayak is lived in the pain of the pursuit of simple, lofty truth.

To read his thrilling journey is like getting the blessing of Lord Ganesha.

About the Author

Raj Supe, aka Kinkar Vishwashreyananda, is a poet, storyteller and a novelist. He is a seeker and a bhakta - a follower, nay, an instrument of Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath. His works include Three No Trumps (a novel, 1998), Sagarika Anusagarika - Echoes for Nine Rivers (poetry, 2001), Pilgrim of the Sky (spiritual memoir, 2010) and translations of religious texts such as Cloudburst of Thousand Suns and lei [ei Ram Krishna HaD.

His writings convey the passionate intensity of a seeker, the sincerity of one who hopes to bring about an ideal mix of traditional mythic imagery and the urgencies of post-modern life. In the words of a leading poet, 'he has the anonymity of the saint-poet on the one hand and the self-expression of the modern writer on the other'.
