Eyes of the Healer is a saga in verse that holds you spellbound with its engaging rhythm of words and narrative. It is the story of Govinda a young man who challenges the boundaries of the mind, to soar through the spiritual Universe in search of divinity and his muse Maya, a devoted young woman who spins her universe around him and redefines the fruition of love. With Eyes of the Healer, Nelofar Currimbhoy guides the reader through a landscape that resonates with palpable human emotions. With surprising and unsettling detail, Currimbhoy pens a story of human fragility, of love and temptation, of spiritual journeys through limitless realms. . Eyes of the Healer is a saga in verse that lifts our transcendent souls past perfunctory existence; a testament to our infinite potential. A book that will stay with you for a long time.

 

'Eyes of the Healer ', is indeed a unique piece of work and perhaps may not have a parallel in Indian English writing. This is an extremely individualistic form of writing, experimental in nature, i t is a brave attempt at a time when popular fiction is the order of the; here is an author who has written not for the numbers but simply to connect to her inner soul and her creative limits. Interestngly the writing adapts to Indian dance forms and has in it the makings of a dance drama. That is infact how Nelofar hopes to see it eventually. If wishes could be true, perhaps off Broadway someday. With its deep spiritual note running through the narrative it is not surprising that the word ' prayer ' comes up repeatedly in comments from those who have read it. Reading Eyes of the Healer is a spiritual experience. It is not a book that you put away. It will stay with you for a long time.
