Author Name: Kankan Kumar Das | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

‘Narcotics was the answer to my forlorn childhood…I was wrong, Baba,’ Nikita confessed, ‘It’s a curse.’

Nikita, a feisty girl from Florence, meets an ascetic in the marketplace while on a UN mission in hilly regions of North India. Captivated by the mesmerizing tune from his flute and a strange appeal, she befriends him. Together they take an arduous challenge of emancipating a tribal village, forced into opium cultivation, from clutches of drug mafia - the most death-defying venture in her life. Will they win their battle against the powerful gang? 

The ascetic cheated death thrice earlier –  will life give him another chance?

The ascetic is well-educated, Nikita discovers –  yet lives like a hermit, deep in the forest and away from society –  is he a fugitive? Who’re these mysterious people alien to this region? Why is he so passionate about them?  

The ascetic addressed Nikita as ‘Anita’ in their first meeting – Why? Who’s Anita?

In pursuit of answers, Nikita rediscovers her own identity and truths about her troubled childhood – Will it change her life forever? Time will tell… 

Eidolon defines the indomitable spirit of a brave man and his determination to destroy evil. It’s a scintillating story of blooming romances, compassion and commitment, trust and betrayals, lies, deceit and vengeance.
