Book Review: Sorcery of the Senses by Tanima Das

The five sense organs of our body constantly guide us throughout our life for a purpose that sometimes we fail to understand. The book Sorcery Of The Senses by Tanima Das uniquely portrays this ideology. 

Book Cover: 

The cover is simple, highlighting the title at the center. The backdrop shows the caricature of a lady with a bow and an arrow.

The Plot: 

The story starts with the introduction of the central character, Dhruv, who is juggling to settle things in his not-so-good married life with Juthika. He keeps visiting his parents house in Raukipur in search of peace that would at least revive his last bit of will to live. 

The parental house brings more surprises than he ever thought of. He opens an old trunk in the store room, thinking that his childhood belongings would bring him some solace. He meets Drishti, the sense of vision, and Sparsha, the sense of touch. They took Dhruv in his past life when he was a woman with supervision and the miraculous healing power of a touch, respectively.

Both senses explain to him that he is here to fulfill a mission left unsolved in his past lives. Will Dhruv listen to his feelings, or will his senses betray him in the present life, too? It is worth the read.
