The Courtesan and the Sadhu is a delightful read. As a young Indian-American, I was thrilled with how much it taught me about Hindu theology and scriptures. Not only was it a wonderful introduction to the religion, but it has also inspired me to go out and learn more about Hinduism. In addition, it is written in a crisp and clear style with a gripping narrative. After I finished each chapter, I couldn't wait to turn to the next one. --Shivaprasad Nagaraj, Attorney, Washington D.C. --Shivaprasad Nagaraj, Attorney, Washington D.C.
