About this title

Synopsis:

Shiva: Destroyer and Protector, Supreme Ascetic and Lord of the Universe. He is Ardhanarishwara, half-man and half-woman; he is Neelakantha, who drank poison to save the three worlds-and yet, when crazed with grief at the death of Sati, set about destroying them. Shiva holds within him the answers to some of the greatest dilemmas that have perplexed mankind. Who is Shiva? Namita Gokhale examines this question and many others that lie within the myriad of stories about Shiva. Even as she unravels his complexities, she finds a philosophy and worldview that is terrifying and yet life affirming-an outlook that is to many the essence of Indian thought.

About the Author:

Namita Gokhale is the author of several works of fiction and non-fiction, including Paro: Dreams of Passion, Gods, Graves and Grandmother, A Himalayan Love Story and Priya: In Incredible Indyaa and the landmark anthology, In Search of Sita. Her much-acclaimed collection of short stories, The Habit of Love, was published in January 2012. Namita Gokhale is also co-director of the Jaipur Literature Festival and Mountain Echoes: The Bhutan Literary Festival.
