Description of "The Evil Eye and the Charm"

The lemon-chili talisman. The nazarbattu.
Hanging outside Indian homes and offices since generations.

What is it in this charm that makes it so indispensable in Hindu folklore and belief? Believed to ward off the evil of Alakshmi from entering our living and working spaces, this charm has ruled the Indian mindset since centuries.

But the question still prevails. Science or superstition?

THE EVIL EYE AND THE CHARM does not claim to answer these questions. Instead, through its six wickedly devious stories, all with twist endings, it puts a new spin on these beliefs.

From the bestselling author of MAYA'S NEW HUSBAND and PISHACHA, here comes a collection of stories that will stay with you long after you have put the book away.
