A new book, ‘The Fragrant Healing Earth’, written by Bhavna Mathur was recently launched in Delhi. The author through the book has tried to bring home the message of interconnectedness of all beings with creation and celebrates the human spirit while inspiring readers towards living a life in harmony with nature. Mathur’s debut novel, ‘The Goodness Charm’ talked about the positivity of community service.
‘The Fragrant Healing Earth’ is the story of university student Prakriti’s prayer to the Mother Goddess for peace and prosperity for entire creation that resides on Planet Earth. The story begins by describing how Prakriti & her family experience life through joys and struggles, including the recent ravaging pandemic. Through the experiences of college professor Kalyani, a close friend Jannat, family friend Ganesh and development professional Phoolpreet, the plot addresses significant themes such as environment conservation, climate change, education and integrated development.
A native of Khushrang village in the hill state of Uttarakhand, Prakriti both as a participant and an observer in the journey represents our interaction with the natural environment. Prakriti’s story enlightens the reader to introspect and breaks apart the illusion of a safe world. It helps the reader to hold onto hope and seek solutions towards preservation rather than destruction.
