New Book by Abhinav Kumar Represents Mystical Heart of India

A scientist who has long studied mysticism creates a compelling tale in his new novel, released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Indianapolis, IN, May 07, 2016 --( “We are such a phenomenal mess. It is amazing that anything works in this country.” These intriguing words kick off a new novel by Abhinav Kumar, a coming-of-age tale set in India, a mystical place where everything from fate and grace to love and power have a role in the story of humanity.

In “Once Upon a Time in Singhpur,” Amit travels to a postgraduate position, meeting others who are on the same journey to learn to be a doctor. Even as he and his colleagues work to appease the man who will stamp his seal on their theses, the hurdle of the exams looms near. His world contains a multitude of people in authority (gods), and no matter what power they command, all demand respect and worship. The novel uses a new kind of narrative that splits the tale into two parts that run parallel – what is observed and what is happening. It touches on the scientific as well as the metaphysical.

The author’s flowing words invite discovery that goes beyond the doors of belief, which often hold back men of science. In the end, Amit and his companions learn that reality and truth act as day and night, both existing together but never occupying the same space.

Author Abhinav Kumar is a scientist, mystic and storyteller. He is a doctor and researcher who has studied occult practices and beliefs around the world. These are the things that lack a system of formal training, examination and qualification. He has found this to be the greatest research he has undertaken. He lives in Dubai, U.A.E.
