MUMBAI, India – Three years past, author Varun Shah was hit with the inspiration to write a fantastical tale of magical lands and psychic abilities. In the intervening years, he read, he traveled and studied storytelling, and the sum of those experiences finally allowed him to conjure up the story in “Drums of Hope” (published by Partridge India).
Going deep into the heart of the psychic nature of mystical journeys, the story of Burzen-garth tells of a magical land that makes its self known through the eternal struggle of the mind to cope with foreign bodies—the battle against disease. Across the land are strange beasts that, good or bad, are all symbolic of the psyche and the magical nature of how healing work’s on the body. As the story unfolds, strange ways are brought to light as the journey of the hero transforms into the work of destiny.
“Drums of Hope” is a little memento of the work of an ageless dream that Shah means to portray what humanity constantly searches for in philosophical, classical and spiritual literature. In presenting this story, Shah hopes to inspire his readers to come to a series of realizations that will allow them to creatively de-stabilize a bad or demonic perception of life. tale with strong underpinnings of philosophical, spiritual literature.
