Book Review: Lucifer’s Lungi by Nitin Sawant


Lucifer's Lungi
by 
Nitin Sawant





The Blurb
 An atheist city-slicker unleashed on a medieval holy village...


A simpleton village priest's boy who blindly worships and guards a pantheon of Gods and Their traditions...


Strange things happen when their worlds collide!


This is a tale of that turmoil on a lonely night in a jungle, when the ghosts you never knew till a few hours ago are let loose on the ghosts that you always carried within, unknowingly.


Welcome to the unholy clash of beliefs, fears and frailties with unknown Gods and demons. A clash that will test your convictions. A clash that will rabidly claw and unmask your subconscious, leaving you naked and paralyzed in front of your demons - in a climax that is as ambiguous as it is certain...

About the author

Nitin Sawant has tried to make a living by being a software programmer, engineer, stock market analyst, copywriter, journalist, tele-shopping expert and jewellery designer at various stages in his life. He's travelled far and wide across the world, and has led a nomadic life for past 20 years. This gives a unique perspective to all his tall tales and offers a distinctive colour to his writing.

Firstly, he doesn't believe that a good story can be written purely through imagination or by adhering to a set formula. Great stories always come from within, from moments that we've lived and experienced. This tale - 'Lucifer's Lungi' also happens to be an amped up version of what he has experienced himself.

Secondly, he doesn't believe in genres and patterns. Real life, which he believes can be stranger than any fiction, can't be classified in any single genre. There's usually a tinge of sadness to every joke he's experienced. And he's always ended up laughing, whenever he's lived through a horror moment, like in the 'Lucifer's Lungi’.

Me thinks
The first thing that comes to my mind as I hold this book in my hands before this review is “ Chota packet bada dhamaal!” This pocket sized book has all the qualities to compete with the best of the thrillers and mystery novels in today’s times. The author has managed to create a perfect backdrop and weave a story around it so beautifully that you almost begin to believe it to be true, as if it is all happening around you at this moment.

For a debutant the author has done a fair amount of research and it shows as you turn page after page trying to grab spools out of the author’s imagination. I admire the imaginative ability of the author and also the magic with which he has managed to ensure the same in his narrative as well. He has dealt with some very serious topics in a very un-serious manner making it one captivating read.

A perfect short and spicy read to brighten up your any lazy moment! Surely recommended read.

Foodie Verdict

This book is like paneer stuffed potatoes- crispy, tasty and instant mood changer!
