Description
About the Book

Jareela (The Castrato), the third part of Changdeo tetralogy by Bhalchandra Nemade is set in a mountainous tribal region where Changdeo finds a teaching job. Soon after he begins to like the primitive life there, a sudden explosion occurs at the power station and the whole town sinks into darkness every day at sunset. The simple folk, ever used to adjusting themselves to living in scarcities, depend on the sun like other organisms. Why do you need electricity? Aren't there the sounds and odours and touch to guide you? they ask. The young bachelor thus comes to terms with the enigma of terrible loneliness. In the primordial dark Changdeo discovers how much of one's own self is otherwise unknown to us. He finds himself a different person in the darkness. The unearthly suppressed images of the past years - the houses he had lived in, the streets and faces and events of the past - all rise up clamouring wildly. The agony of the little white bull, his childhood friend, castrated in a brutal traditional method haunts him. The pursuit of loneliness becomes a retribution to his choice of freedom, a tragic penalty. Is there no escape? Changdeo again finds himself at the crossroads.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
