Curiosity is the seeding ground for discoveries. Humans are rendered with an impeccable capacity of comprehending things and getting to its depth. Churning the galaxy within, one can explore the unfathomable universe, a search from micro to macro.
Driven by the same quest, author Bhoopali Nisal decided to unearth the scientific facts and reasons behind the existence of caves and cave sculptures. ‘Kallolteertha’ by Bhoopali Nisal is a travelogue cum autobiographical account of the author’s interest in cave research that takes the readers through the journey of exploring varied Hindu caves spread across the country. The author has marvelously put into words what drove her to explore the infinities of knowledge and how she came in contact with facts. The book subtly touches through each of the facts without making it a complete scientific jargon.
The tonality of the book revolves around two aspects viz. Advaita and Karuna. Keeping these two points intact, the author goes on to create a work of marvel that is well reflected in the language of the book.
