My column in DailyO where I talk about my research on #tantrism for my new novel #TheMatsyaCurse

"Anticipating a kitsch scoop of the century for my series, I set about pedaling local bookstores buying books by the dozen with delectable names like Encyclopedia of Indian Erotics, Kiss of the Yogini: Tantric Sex in its South Asian Context, Tantra Vidya: The Essence of Tantric Sexuality, and even an Encyclopedia of Superstitions, Folklore and the Occult Sciences of the World.

Ravishing though these cover names sounded, they were all academic and rather dry. Reading them made me realise that tantrism wasn't what I and a majority of Indians think it is: a black magic art or voodoo in which a bad boy tantric can make people do their biddings, harm them with a mere hair or bring a series of catastrophes into an enemy's life."
