Muniya'S Light
Two Indians, a man and a woman, decide to take the same flight home from America on the first anniversary of 9/11. He is a peripatetic philosopher and spiritual seeker of an older generation. She, daughter of an old college friend, is a young graduate student of 'art and religion'at an American university. He had last seen her when she was a child who spoke very little. Now she plies him with questions about the role of Indian philosophy and spirituality in the world traumatised by violence and vengefulness. He shares with her his understanding and experiences of a cross-section of people he has met and his conversations with them; and about the art that he has seen and the wisdom of modern India. We can love the world as ourselves because all things are but images, lucid or distorted of Atman, our own deepest self. This timeless teaching of Advaita, he suggests, is the light in the midst of the darkness of our times. Muniya's Light is a work of fiction in the Indian tradition of storytelling and simultaneous philosophical and spiritual inquiry.
About the Author
Author, story teller, philosopher and teacher, Ramachandra Gandhi has taught philosophy in India, Britain and America. His most recent book published in 2003 by Vadehra Art Gallery, Svaraj: A Journey with Tyeb Mehta's Shantiniketan Tryptich, is a reflection on a masterpiece of modern Indian painting. An earlier work, Sita's Kitchen; A Testimony of Faith and Inquiry, published in 1992 by SUNY Press, was a fictional exploration of a Buddhist story and an analysis of the still unabated Ayodhya crisis. He has written and directed several plays on the sages of modern India, such as Sri Ramakrishna, Svami Vivekananda, Sri Ramana Maharshi and Mahatma Gandhi, in collaboration with the famous Kathak dancer Shovana Narayan. Ramachandra Gandhi is currently working on a book on the sages of modern India.
