Publisher: Full Circle Publishing Ltd Genre: History Read all details Description Dissecting the complexities of living under a spiritual microscope, The Fakir follows Rudra, a hippie ripe with plans of suicide whose sudden rescue of an old man who strikingly resembles Sai Baba lends to a contemplative relationship of excavating truths and mysteries related to life.
He is a hippie inclined to live out of haversacks in small and dingy hotels and swigging down malt whiskey. However, this young man finds that everything in his life is changed due to a chance encounter. While driving along the highway, he comes upon an old man lying in a pool of his own blood. There and then in an embrace, Rudra notes the resemblance this man shares with the Shirdi Sai Baba. The novel is an empathetic symbol of spirituality and life as the old man makes the hapless protagonist realize several truths about the metaphysics of the world.
The dialogues that are written between the sage and disciple are at the heart of this novel and Bharucha brings a fascinating narrative to life. Karma, divinity, praying, and spirit communication among the broader entities of faith, forgiveness, and energy are all demystified to both the lay reader and the hippie.
