Book Description
Freewheeling Mimlu Sen lives in Paris, where one day she witnesses an electrifying performance by three Bauls, mystic minstrels from Bengal, who spin like pillars of dust. Their music inspires her to return to Culcutta, and to go on an extraordinary journey with one of them, Paban Das Baul, from her respectable home in the city to his humble village, and on to the verdant Bengali countryside that is their common heritage. Paban takes Mimlu through the itinerant Baul`s route - from the festival at Kenduli with its marathon performance, to tranquil Shantiniketan, where Bauls frequently stop en route and disrupt quotidian life; Agrodwip, deep in the Vaishnava world, to Nabasana, where mesmerising guru Hari Goshian presides over Baul games and ultimately, her initiation, to Boral, where she holds her own mahatsava. Along the way, the encounters tantrics and tribals, exorcisms and witch sightings, catfish that climb trees and esoteric sexo-yogic secrets - and she falls in love.
