Beyond the Rainbow: Indian Souls in Short Stories
Beyond the Rainbow by Prabhakar is a work of fiction. Each story is a poetic experience, aesthetic as well as elevating. The story connotes as a whole without any annotation. The moral and aesthetic coalesce. The stories are a portrayal of simple characters that come and go as silently as the day or the night. The stories approximate to an Indian macrocosm of vision and variety without any prejudice to their universal extent and intent. A pervasive sense of irony is ever there to chasten any romantic pigmentation. The book serves a sumptuous cocktail of romance and symbolism, humour and irony, realism and religion with a sympathetic human concern. It betrays a simple soul’s predicament and pride. Going through the book the reader would hear the echoes of the past, the present, and the future of humanity. A journey from ‘The Champion’ to ‘The Mahakumbha’ is a pilgrimage through India.
