Title: Lucifer’s Lungi
Author: Nitin Sawant
Are you afraid of ghosts? No? Then, you should consider reading this traveltale. Nevertheless, if your answer is ‘YES’, you MUST consider reading this ghostly story and mark my words, you will no longer be afraid of these mystical creatures.
Lucifer’s Lungi is a simple read pocket-book that attracts your attention with its peculiar page size specification and interesting book cover. A haunting scenery with age-old temple building with title etched on crumpled background banner. A decent example of an attractive book cover that hypnotizes you to turn over the pages.
Next, as soon as you open the book, you are introduced with the author who is a well travelled and experienced professional. His experiences are well depicted in his story telling technique which will grab your attention as soon as you land on the po-logue page.
At no point of time you will feel that you are reading a book or a story rather you experience as if one of your friends is sharing his personal memoir with you in person. The manner in which he introduces his monotonous office schedule and need to pump up and re-energise your sensesand constant motivaton from collegues are a few dacts that will aid you to connect with the storyline without any additonal effort.
This story is about a man who enjoys exploring new destinations every weekend. The selection procedure is an interesting affair. The story progresses as he choses one fine destination; one fine day. What happens next, is a story folded in the creases of Lucifer’s Lungi.
The chosen destination is not a favorite tourist spot but a place which people visited to pay homage to the lost ones. Like every other Indian village, this village too is full of stories with logical reasonings behind every single account. You will enjoy the ride across a village full of temples and welcoming villagers.
The description of surroundings and its amalgamation with the plot is worth a praise. Though, he is a non-believer of ghosts, he is forced to believe as he encounters one such incident personally and as he recollects his belief in Lucifer’s Lungi.
Will he start believing in ghosts? Does this mean that ghosts do exist? Is this the story of existenxe of the non-existants? What is the mystery behind Lucifer’s Lungi? Will he find answers of existing questions or regret landing into such a ghostly village at first place?
A praise-worthy effort by the author. I said so because I had read about this incident earlier but it was a humorous SMS packaged in 2 sentences. Re-reading it in the form of a personal account was intimidating enough to bring brain cells to exercise.
An enjoyable joy-ride with the ghosts. A memorable experience. Keep your routine work pressure aside and flow with the Lucifer’s Lungi.
