Prasvapa by Chand Svare Ghei is a collection of short stories that are essentially philosophical in nature. Prasvapa is translated text and contains a few short stories, each with a unique theme, plot line, and characters. However, the underlying philosophical tone that searches for the meaning of life, death, love, and the universe is common throughout and is pervasive. Prasvapa speaks of the hopes and ambitions of man and the realization of how, in the end, all that matters is love. This is a book that makes one ponder over those universal and fundamental questions that have haunted mankind since the beginning of life.
Prasvapa by Chand Svare Ghei is a short read and I enjoyed some of the stories more than others. There is certainly an element of suspense, drama, and mystery in these stories, along with providing plenty of food for thought. Ancient concepts of consciousness and the ultimate realization are indirectly explored through these thought-provoking tales. That being said, the language at times felt stilted and artificial. This is probably due to the fact that some quality was lost during translation and the original voice and tone of the writing probably did not translate accurately. Even so, this is an interesting book of short stories that gives one plenty to think about and reflect over one’s own life and the seeming futility of it all. For this reason, I would recommend this book.
