Dakshesh, an old man in Sirubari village suffering from cancer, wishes to be released from the excruciating pain. He requests the villagers to take him to the three monks. They are all intrigued by the legend of the mystical three monks. No one has seen them but only heard stories of miraculous healing they offered.
Knowing that the sick man’s death is imminent, the villagers leave him alone near the Pashupatinath temple hoping that the three monks, if they exist, would embrace him on the holy land. The old man wakes up to the sight of the three monks, but only to know that they are no saints but notorious criminals. What they tell Dakshesh in his last few breaths, shakes his entire perception of humanity and its sins.
Demons in My Mind…When Mind Becomes Your Biggest Enemy unfolds stories within a story through Dakshesh and three monks. Each monk holds his own dark share to deliver… murder.. rape .. torture; it indeed pulls out the shady corners of the world of sins. I don’t want to disclose much of the plot as it is the treat that the book serves. This mystery thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat!
I would like to appreciate the author in picking up such a daring thread for his story. There were really deep things to ponder on from the book and a lot of details to read in between the lines. The stories each monk presented exploring their psychological states and turn of events that made them what they are heats up the plot. The writing style is brilliant that you will feel enthralled as you go on. It indeed says what its title suggests… demons in our mind and seriously most types of those dark demons are covered in this I guess… The crime plot makes it effectively exhilarating. Also I really loved the title and the book cover design, so apt for the content.
At some points, I felt it was too much to handle or there was a lot of things happening other than that the book was a great read.
I would love to read more from this author. My rating for this book will be 4.5 / 5 😀
