FREE WILL from Lockdown A Multiverse Love Story

Author Name: ShashiKiran Alur | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

When Neeraja seeks counsel for divorce on her Facebook Yoga group, the will to separate from her love Willie is cathartic and not just a social media whim triggered by the confinement of the lockdown. Willie’s Zoom calls dressed in a blazer and boxer shorts bugs Neeraja, but there is a deeper divergence she sees with Willie. Or is it the clash of his American upbringing and her Indian one that would snowball them to crossroads in their marriage? 

She believes crossroads in life are not just about ‘the road not taken’. If the multiverse hypothesis by physicists like Sean Carroll, Stephen Hawking, et al, has some credence, it is about all the roads that leave that crossing.

The destiny of these two intensely passionate, entangled souls is poised on the choices they make at an earlier crossroad. A free will chooses randomly each time, but what about consciousness?

ShashiKiran Alur

Shashi was a global nomad by destiny, an engineer by vocation, a physicist in curiosity, and a life sciences strategist by profession. In the daytime, he treaded the mundane corporate world, providing solicited advice on corporate commercial endeavors and governmental economic policies around the world. In the darkness of the night, if his snores were not echoing through the streets of Basel, Switzerland, he was busy coalescing the tales he encountered in the bars of Tel Aviv, the teahouses of Amman, the Surf houses of Lima, and the music clubs of Havana, while vibing with people of different cultures.

An amateur writer, poet and playwright in college days, Shashi had returned to serious writing after a twenty year stint in Global Business and Management. Hailing from Jaipur, India, Shashi had lived & worked in four different regions around the globe. For the last 14 years, he resided in Basel, Switzerland and was an avid reader of books of all kinds, greatly influenced by the likes of Carl Gustav Jung, Joseph Campbell, George Bernard Shaw, and TS Eliot. His writings over the last two decades have been a few thought-provoking articles on race-relations in independent publications, and on business in business journals.

This book is a posthumous publication.
