Lost in Time: Ghatotkacha and the Game of Illusions

I had met Ghatotkacha and could still feel the warm glow of our friendship.

But had this really “happened”?’

Young Chintamani Dev Gupta, sent packing to a birding camp near Lake Sat Tal, is inexplicably transported to the days of the Mahabharata. Trapped in time, he meets Ghatotkacha and his mother, the demoness Hidimbi. But the gentle giant, a master of illusions and mind-boggling rakshasa technology, wields his strength just as expertly as he imparts the age-old secrets of the forest and the elemental forces. And in his enlightening company, Chintamani finds himself in the thick of the events of the most enduring Indian epic.

A tender look at a remarkable friendship as well as the abiding riddles of time, this visual treat of a book sheds light on the firstborn son of the Pandavas—one who finds rare mention in the yellowing pages of legend.
