How many of us have the courage to address and follow the true spiritual calling from within and beyond. This is the story of Shiva as he embarks on a journey to become a part of the most feared and simultaneously revered cults - Aghori.
Shiva was borne on auspicious day of Shivaratri in an orthodox Hindu family in Trivandrum. His family was follower of Lord Vishnu but since childhood Shiva’s devotion was inclined towards Lord Shiva. He was curious as to gain knowledge on myths and tales of Lord Shiva. His queries were often greeted by his family with raised eyebrows and getting the warning to shush it down. His curious mindset towards this created issues in his life but Shiva just couldn’t ignore his calling to become a true devotee of Lord Shiva.
Sasindran Kallinkeel in his yet another fiction novel Shiva & The Aghoris written in autobiographical style gives insights on the real life of Aghoris and their spiritual beliefs and practices. The journey of becoming an Aghori is the most demanding and cruel one. One does not simply attain the status of being qualified for even becoming a hermit in Kashi and in midst of that Shiva struggles and completes his calling of becoming an Aghori.
