About the book:

This is an unusual book on philosophy, written in the form of a novel, by a child prodigy of sixteen, in which abstruse philosophical concepts like Shunya, Sankhya, Mimansa are dealt with astonishing simplicity.
In this startling work difficult phenomena of creation as enunciated in the Rigveda and various upanishadic episodes like those of Yajnavalkya, Gargi and Maitreyi are narrated in story form and conversational style and sometimes in the form of letters. The young author's acquaintance with modern sciences including genetics is amazing. All in all, this book by a child prodigy so knowledgeable in Indian Philosophy makes for interesting reading.
