Bend in the Sarayu: A Soota Chronicle
Bend in the Sarayu-A Soota Chronicle is a quasi-fictional book that leads the reader in space-time travel through some of the arterial routes in the heart of India. Commencing from the Delhi-Indraprastha, through Lucknow-Lakshmanpur, the Ghagra-Sarayu trail, onto Oudh-Ayodhya, and finally to Neemsar-Naimisharanya, the reader travels through streams of experiences, steered by Soota, the teller of stories. Narrations from mythology, history and contemporary life crisscross in a lattice of earthy reality and mystic speculations. Informative and entertaining, it is a story of a storyteller seeking his roots.
