The Accidental Godman
By Kishore Bhimani

The novel is set in India in 2027. These are strange times – the population of the country is 1.62 billion and counting. Open spaces have disappeared and the remaining public parks can only be entered with the help of ‘ration’ cards for limited periods. The country now has a two-party democracy ¬ghting the elections on issues of environment and survival. In this rudderless world are cast a moody, dismissive, impatient, Ranvijay, who becomes the godman Muktanand Vishwajyoti Vaisahmpati; the stunning beauty Nisha with her rich, anchor boyfriend Rajat; and the unnamed protagonist. Kamashrama is the stage where a large part of the novel is based. This is where Ranvijay ¬nds and explores his spiritual side and it is in the taking over of the ashram by unscrupulous elements that politics and bureaucracy are woven into the plot. The Accidental Godman is a saga of love and desire, of the overarching lust for power and greed that corrupts all.
