Review and Spotlight of Lucifer's Lungi by Nitin Sawant

"Lucifer's Lungi"

Lucifer's Lungi
Nitin Sawant

The Blurb
 An atheist city-slicker unleashed on a medieval holy village...

A simpleton village priest's boy who blindly worships and guards a pantheon of Gods and Their traditions...

Strange things happen when their worlds collide!

This is a tale of that turmoil on a lonely night in a jungle, when the ghosts you never knew till a few hours ago are let loose on the ghosts that you always carried within, unknowingly.

Welcome to the unholy clash of beliefs, fears and frailties with unknown Gods and demons. A clash that will test your convictions. A clash that will rabidly claw and unmask your subconscious, leaving you naked and paralyzed in front of your demons - in a climax that is as ambiguous as it is certain...

My Review

The name of the book, Lucifer's Lungi drew my attention since it symbolizes humor, and I assumed it to be a light read.

No regrets since it gave me some space and time to ponder over some issues (when the plot became a little redundant) that we had taken some myths for granted in our lives. Thus, making me help evaluate from the perspective of the protagonist and the priest's boy.

Lucifer's Lungi is a story about a man who is a software professional working in the city and tries to escape the boring and monotonous life by making weekend trips to new places. On one such trip, he ends up in a small village where the holiday becomes an adventure. Here he is exposed to the religious myths and being a man from the city that embraces science and facts, the story revolves on how he deals with the situation.

This is the author's debutant novel, and he has done a fine job in keeping his readers glued while touching a topic in a non-judgemental way!

The narration is crisp and kept me on the edge. Although what I really admired about the author was that he presented a serious matter that has been nagging our society for years; to deliver in such a prudent yet light manner that is not offensive to people favoring either sides.

Thus, making it a book as a must-read who would aye or nay on the religious beliefs presented.
