A peek into the book
‘What is ‘ordinary’?’
Is a question Prithvi Sen has been pondering over his whole life. Seemingly, he is an ordinary 21 year old boy, facing the awkward phases of young adulthood. Nothing is really ‘ordinary’ with him except the fact that he lives a normal life with his father in the city of Mumbai. Prithvi is plagued by an uncanny disease that has eaten away his childhood years and given him abilities that he feels his life would be better off without.
He can hear things; strange voices, incantations and whispers of a million voices belonging to people he has never met before. He spends his life tackling the traumas associated with his disease, facing dejection and loneliness. This is all until, the symptoms of his disease start getting more intense and gives him visions of a strange dimension with a sage-like man trying to communicate something to him.
Prithvi finds himself torn between what’s real and what’s illusion. He begins to question his earthly existence as he slowly falls upon some sinister secrets. In his visions, he begins to see a grimy old castle with deformed reptilian creatures that pushes him deeper into his existential crisis.
Who is he? What is his real identity? Who are the strange creatures? And the most prominent of all…what is the cause behind his abnormal disease? Who will tell him?
