  • Blurb:

“A life, less ordinary made extraordinary by the search for the divinity within. Tracing the journeys of people from varied professions, this is a tale of self-discovery, the science of spirituality and long-lost love while a young scientist comes to terms with his childhood dreams.

Join an uplifting narrative crafted by Shashi as he takes you on a journey with the Monk- high on the mountains and in depths of broken hearts.

  • Review:

Songs of the Mist by Shashi is a journey to self-discovery. Ayan is a young scientist who is in search of an unknown particle. He designs a program that messages him whenever his software finds an unusual pattern in the energies under scrutiny. One such message changes his life and sets him on the path to unravel the mystery of his haunting childhood dream. Anishka is a Yogini at an ashram in Rishikesh. Her disturbing past causes her to self-realize her divine path. Ashutosh is a young guy whose family dies overnight because of a cholera outbreak, resulting in him losing himself among a group of monks. Other protagonists too have their own stories and are all connected by one common goal — Meeting The Monk! The narration seemed a bit ambiguous and draggy at one point. It was also somewhat confusing in the beginning.

The way the plot has been structured is amazing. It is beautiful how different people leading different types of lives are all somehow connected via a common goal. I enjoyed reading this book majorly because of the characters’ inter-connection with each other; it was explicitly implicit! Simple story and a refreshingly different theme are the highlights of this book.

  • Verdict:

Refreshingly different (3.5/5)
