"Brahmin Reborn" by Bhaskar Sreerangam & Esther Sandys £6.99
"I took a glass and carefully broke it. I ground it, then mixed it into some cooked rice. This lethal meal would be then end of my insufferable ignorance. In only a matter of hours I'd discover the secret of the afterlife..."
It is 1966. Madras, India. A young Brahmin realises the futility of his ritualistic Hinduism. Unable to face another day, he gives his gods an ultimatum: reveal yourself, or I will kill myself. After preparing a deadly meal, he heads out for what he thinks will be his final walk around the city. As he does he passes a man handing out flyers. They catch his eye. He's intrigued. He heads inside to see what's going on. What happens next changes the direction of his life and the ill-fated meal waiting at home.
'A fascinating insight into a very different world and a wonderful reminder of the power of the gospel to transform the lives of people from any background.' - Clare Heath-Whyte (author & speaker)
