The world has always been intrigued by the enigmatic. One such mystifying concept that has gripped the human psyche since ages is the concept of ‘soul’. The idea of soul, life after death, and reincarnation has long been a tantalizing subject for religious preachers, scientists, and the common man. In this splendid work, Dr Anil Moharir has presented a holistic, multidisciplinary overview of the much contested subjects of ‘soul’ and ‘rebirth’ guided by his scientific instincts. Readers will get an in-depth understanding of the notions that have always puzzled the world. The book is perhaps the first of its kind to indulge in the analysis of such a difficult, socio-psychologically complex, and emotionally challenging concept prevalent across diverse cultures for thousands of years.
