Product Description

Are crimes and mental illness related?
Is your mind under your control?
Is your life an illusion created by you?

Dakshesh, an old man in Sirubari village suffering from cancer, wishes to be released from excruciating pain. His journey takes him to the three monks, known for miraculous healing and life transformation. He discovers they are no saints, but hardened criminals. The three monks - Rizwan, Murli, Joseph - narrate stories of unprecedented savagery that would make even the most cold-hearted criminals look down with shame.

The dark stories of the three monks leave Dakshesh gasping, but there is something about their dishonorable lives that relieves Dakshesh from his pain.

Human mind is one of the most complex machine ever built. It is more complex than any super computer. Does we rule the mind or the mind rules us? The title gives us the idea.

Dakshesh is an old man who is on the verge of a painful death. He ask his fellows to take him to mysterious three monks. The three monks Rizwan (Muslim), Murli (Hindu) and Joseph (Christian) all have dark past. They start telling him their stories. The first monk, Rizwan is from a poor family who is in debt of local priest. He has his friends Ayeda and mysterious young boy. He end up doing heinous crimes. The second monk, Murli is a celebrity painter who have become so successful in short span of time that he has surpassed his guru. He is inspired by body of women and they are her muse. But success gets to his head and he loses grip of his faculty. The third monk, Joseph is in love with Ira. Ira want to do social service and make this world a better place. When tragedy strikes Joseph loses his control on his mind. How these three find their salvation through a girl named a homeless girl, Alia is the story.

The story raises some pertinent and uncomfortable questions. Are the so called criminals evil or just a victim of their own uncontrolled mind? Why society is able to find a cure for every disease sooner or later, but crime has been a part of our history from the beginning. If punishing sinners are logical, justifiable and most appropriate then why have we not been able to contain crime? Why do we keep producing a generation of sinners whose crimes change form but not nature? Maybe because we don’t know how the mind works. Cannot criminals be treated as people infected by a communicable disease that kills anything the sufferer comes in contact with?

This book is different, it is dark, traumatising and makes you think. Unlike other books of this genre, this story also touches upon mental illnesses and how they affect the society. The author explores what happens if people become slaves to their disruptive minds.

The book starts on a different note. Initially, the way the story started I felt it would go on a spiritual note as we see a person wishing to meet the three wise monks. But once he meets the said monks, the story takes a dark turn where we read the dark past of each of these monks.

The overall construction of the story is excellent. The fact that the three stories were completely different from each other, which made the reading process quite effortless. The characters were multifaceted.

The writing mixes poetry and prose quite effortlessly. It helps us understand what is going on in the mind of the people. Overall I really liked this book, I rate it 4 out of 4.

There are lots of remedies for physical ailments and very less for mental illnesses. Human mind is an enigma. It is a part of our body yet we don’t know what it is or how it actually looks like, however, unbeknownst to us most of us are controlled by our minds throughout our whole lives.

Sometimes our minds guide us towards some noble cause; sometimes they fill themselves with seven deadly sins and take us to the deepest pits of Tartarus.
That is the premise of this book, a debut novel by Aashish Gupta Demons in My Mind.

Summary:-
Are crimes and mental illness related?
Is your mind under your control?
Is your life an illusion created by you?

Dakshesh, an old man in Sirubari village suffering from cancer, wishes to be released from excruciating pain. His journey takes him to the three monks, known for miraculous healing and life transformation. He discovers they are no saints, but hardened criminals. The three monks - Rizwan, Murli, Joseph - narrate stories of unprecedented savagery that would make even the most cold-hearted criminals look down with shame.

The dark stories of the three monks leave Dakshesh gasping, but there is something about their dishonorable lives that relieves Dakshesh from his pain.

My Thoughts:- Honestly the contemporary Indian English literature seems to be half hearted to me, so lifeless as if half of its essence is not poured into it. I guess it is possible as English is not our mother tongue (however it has now become our second mother tongue). However our old Indian masters of literature took this language in their works to its zenith for example Raja RamMohan Ray, Rabindranath Tagore, R.K. Narayan, Mulk Raj Anand etc.

But this book…Oh. My.

The book opens while narrating the story of a kind-hearted old man Dakshesh, someone who has helped every person in his village from the very beginning of his adult life and is looked up to by villagers. Being on verge of death he looks for ways to ease his pain and in efforts to do so he asks his family and friends to take him to “Three Monks”. “Three monks” whose tales of being healers have become famous among people. Finally, villagers decide to leave Dakshesh alone for two days in the temple in the hope that if the myth of Three Monks is real then they would help Dakshesh and ease his pain. The story then unfolds and reveals the reality of Three Monks, their sins in life and how they found salvation. Buy the book to know more about the lives of the monks and what their real identities are?
The real setback is what you will feel when you reach the end of the book which won’t meet your expectations that have been built meticulously through the plot. The plot deals with the situations which a normal person faces in life due to the restrictions put up by the people in society. It tells us how when pressured sometimes people tend to take wrong steps and surrender to the demons in their mind. The book shakes the foundation of your belief in the society, in yourself and in your power of decision making. Being afraid of horror genre I won’t be reading this book again, but for lovers of this genre it is a must read.
