The book opens with Caiz a sufi rockstar who is in coma due to overdose of sleeping pills mixed with Vodka. His friend, his philosopher ,guide,Sai baba takes Caiz s ether self to His cave and hence the spiritual journey of Caiz begins. Its insightful to see, a steady spiritual commentary and flow of dialogues between Caiz and his Beloved Baba Sai. The timeline flows seamlessly between the ether present and Sai Baba s life. In spite of the lucid language, the writer gets across the message of spirituality, how to live, morals in the current society. There is not a single moment in which the reader gets bored with the constant dose of spiritual medicine. The messages, though eternal strikes a chord, remain with you after a long time once you have completed the book. The only disconcerting part which I found (personally) was Sai Baba using swear words. The camadarie between Caiz and Baba Sai is beautifully potrayed through out the book. One is bonded with them, instantly at their little fights, dialogues, sense of humour & mutual affectation they have for each other. The journey which begins with Caiz s coma and ends in Baba s Samadhi leaves the reader with many insights in human nature, religion, prayers and the science behind it. --shweta jani Jan 11, 2015
Rabda came to em on a day I needed a lot of reasons to have faith in God. Weall might agree to disagree with God on the death of innocents but to think of them as angels walking back to their home was re assuring. Rabda is Sai's journey on Earth while he was physically alive and more so after that - a guiding spirit for all his devotees and to provide what one seeks, some times the hard way. The way writer explains about why we go through difficult times and how keeping faith can help us. further we learn about true essence of Sai's teachings and to be a worthy creation. As for the non-believers, I had a talk with a few close friends and I realized that even they believe in the goodness of humans and loving the creations on Earth. Just that , they focus more on living in the moment and have problems with next birth or the spirit life. Well, they can still like the book for the teachings of Oneness of God ( no religion) , Being good , passing kindness , Living comfortable yet not with too much wastage and never refusing anyone for help you can give easily. --Pratibha sofat Dec 27, 2014
A spiritual book which has fact peppered with fiction. Written in an engaging style, it doesnt force religion or spirituality on the reader. Instead, it makes a discourse about Sai baba's life sound very interesting in a conversation between a musician Rabda and his master, Sai baba of Shirdi. --Samarpita Sharma Dec 26, 2014

But this book may not be interesting if you are not familiar with baba's life as portrated by Hindus or with sai himself.But this will be not disappoint any reader.
The writing is much better than other Ruzbeh books; I guess he's changed his editing staff...lol! And as usual, you'll have to tolerate or enjoy Ruzbeh's quirky jokes.
