The book has been brought out by the Atlantic Book House. Shray Jain, the CEO of Atlantic Book House was also present at the occasion of the book launch.

The book Tantra and the Tantrika is the debut novel of Karan Razdan. The story revolves around a prostitute, Megha who becomes enlightened. The rich and the religious of Benaras led by Yogi Mahendranath are out to destroy this prostitute turned Guru Ma. Susan, a young and innocent girl travels from England to India in search of nirvana and peace. She wants to walk the path of Tantra, but gets embroiled in the Holy War. “This is a love story that goes back thousand years. The story is webbed in painful separation, deceit, penance and finally awakening.

The highlights of her look were the long dangling ear rings and the chunky red colored ring on her index finger. “Karan should have written a book much earlier. He writes just great scripts.
