A Goddess Named Gold is a modern fable of rural India narrated against the backdrop of freedom struggle. It is a masterly satire on those who live by the lure of gold. The characters are introduced one by one in a leisurely manner, and we meet among them a pretty girl, a wandering minstrel and a luxuriously mustachioed seth. Skillfully blending fable and reality it delves deep into a human mind. The plot centers around a touchstone given to Meera by her sagacious grandfather. It is believed that the amulet would enable Meera to turn copper into gold, provided she acts kindly as a natural and spontaneous expression of herself. "Wearing it on your person, if you do an act of kindness, real kindness, then all copper on your body will turn into gold...parted from your arm, the toughstone will be dead, a worthless pebble." It is a hugely entertaining tale, yet it disturbs. It disturbs as a warning and as a prophecy.
