Call Of The Yeti

Call Of The Yeti

“It is a saga of the monkish, untrained and non-violent Tibetan people’s brave fight for their freedom against the army of China that invaded their country in 1959, with all the sophisticated weapons available at the time.

The spirit of humanity lives in the adventure of those pilots who, like Siva – the hero of this novel, dared to face the abyss. Siva absolves man from the gross and narrow ties of nation, ethnicity, and region and from private and local attachments, in order that he may devote himself to the boundless pursuit of the free human spirit that had been created for man, which was later obliterated, confused and falsified by greed-guided seekers of empires. All minor considerations yield, in the system of Siva, to the stern call of absolute freedom. The place of such heroes is where cold, razor-sharp winds blow, and chisel the signatures of liberty, equality and fraternity on the faces of naked rocks, crags and plateaus. His life shows that reason does not lie in justifying one’s action by rational means; it lies rather in man’s imagination that selflessly looks far into the horizon to erect a milestone for humanity, so it does not falter, again, in its march towards God.

Siva is the hero of our times. He walks from history into legend, from toil into folksong, without listening to the dismal counsel of those misguided-guides of humanity, who counseled the fatigued caravan of humanity to accept the collaboration of evil in the name of success.

There is love and hatred, magic and hard toil, bravery and deceit, low descent to deep dungeons and rapid ascent to sublime heights in this novel. It is the whole life of the 20th century man, from the tender, freshly sprouting emotions of adolescence to the disillusionment in the fullness of youth and then to the toilsome re-discovery of hope, love and tenderness, in a vista turned grey and lifeless by the doings and undoing of great powers.

It retains the flavor of Tibet as it was, just before the extinction of its culture, natural grace and spirituality. It presents a model of life, in stark contradiction to our civilization, just to show to the present generation what became of man was not inevitable; that if humanity has turned so helpless in the grip of insensitivity and disregard of human values, it has become such because of wrong decisions by our leaders. It is a story of what man has made of man. Humanity’s story is not the story what God had intended it to be. It turned dismal and tragic, God did not create the story of mankind, though he has written a beautiful and happy script of the story of mankind. God’s script stands ready for every generation. The generation that will seek the guidance of God sincerely, not by becoming oracles and prophets, but by behaving as humble and loving children, will take life to the right track that takes them towards fulfillment and happiness.

God has not faltered. He has promised mankind freedom of will. That is why God does not impose his script on mankind. He has given the freedom to every human to write the story themselves, using the light of the human spirit that he has given to every human heart. Somehow the political leaders have misappropriated the freedom that was given by God to every human. They have turned it tragic, only to satisfy their egos. It has turned dismal and tragic because it is not what God wants human life to be. If every century was full of wars, famines and misery, it was because the freedom that God has given to everyman and everywoman has been misappropriated by the politicians to write their own sick fantasies with human blood. God has given freedom to mankind to reach Him or hell, whatever it chooses. God does not interfere. Man has to ask him to guide him from darkness to light. He collaborates only when one wants him to, as he wants his life to be.”
