Appraisals: Kiriti Sengupta highlights the commentary written about the bestselling Indian author Kiriti Sengupta. Sengupta is a radical traditionalist with a keen eye for cosmopolitan detail. This collection will introduce you to who he is as a person and author, the sacrifices he has made to become the spiritual guide his works reveal, and his own reflections through the writings of collegues, academics, thinkers, teachers, and publishers. Appraisals: Kiriti Sengupta is an awakening to the presence of divine energy flowing through all living beings, an avenue to openness and revelation, and a commentary on a writer who is saying a lot the world needs to hear. This book is not a pleasure trip into a narcissistic delusion; rather, it is a beautiful invitation to a bounty of thought and spiritual wisdom. This book tells you why Sengupta is important. It is brought to you by American small press Transcendent Zero Press. In today’s miserable political climate, a light breeze in the form of literature is welcome.
