***** thanks to a good teacher this can happen - brilliantly brought out in the story, August 6, 2016

By Amazon Customer

This review is for: Cuts

Can a murderer in hiding become a spiritual person? How did the highway bandit Ratnakar become the sage Valmiki? The answer lies in this totally different styled, highly absorbing novel CUTS by Mohan Narayanan. Finished reading in one go! The story being from the protagonist's viewpoint, the reader is transformed into Rajavijayan himself. That even an ordinary man can become a yogi with learning and practice, thanks to a good teacher, is brilliantly brought out in the story. Here, his life changes with one beheading due to anger and changes once again with another beheading done as his duty. In between the two gory events, so many different incidents, events. An entirely different reading experience. A divine feeling lingers throughout encompassing the reader's mind and body. CUTS is Ideal material for a movie on a low budget - if my cinematographer friend Susheel Kumar decides, this can happen. Great reading experience! Thank you, Mohan Narayanan !

The story revolves around Rajavijayan, a Tamil Srilankan working in a tea estate in the island, caught in the turbulent politics of the Tamil vs Sinhalese movement of the Tamil Tigers who were fighting for a separate Tamil State. He murders the estate's tea-taster - a high official - and is wanted by the police; He escapes to southern India on a smuggling boat and there is wanted by the Indian police as well. He then flees to Nepal where he feels he can live hidden in the caves and mountains of the Himalayas. But fate has something totally unexpected for him, thanks to a yogi who was once an eminent international botanist but had renounced the world to meditate in the Himalayas and look after a Kali temple at the foot hills of Mount Kanchenjunga.
