When Nandini, young Hyangla's cow, strays inside Nakshi forest, he encounters the witch Jatai Buri. She initiates him into the world of magic. His education is completed by Master Rudra, the head of the Order of Good sorcerers. Soon he is flying around on his banyan leaf, curing sick villagers with magic. The story culminates in the ghost war of Tepantar—a war in the Tepantar marsh fought between Rudra and Rakshit (the master of evil sorcerers) with Kulapati, his evil commander. The author takes us on a see-saw ride through the fascinating world of ghosts and spirits. We are introduced to ghosts not only from India, but from other parts of the world.
