The journey unfolds with thrilling mysteries across geographies; from the city of Angels – Los Angeles to ancient Varanasi.
“Prithvi Raj Banerjee achieves an amazing feat in Chronicles of Kali: The Secret Book of Asurs in capturing the essence of the Indic wisdom tradition. Banerjee shows, in a playful way, how to awaken our inner Kali to slay the demon that defines “excitement as happiness” and throws us in the very pit of delusory insanity. Here is a book that anyone suffering under the spell of modern alienation needs to read to understand how we have lost our way in the maze of our own thoughts, the real Raktabija.”
