The circle of Love embraces the eternal questions life and death, woman and man, time and space, freedom and bondage, desire and intimacy in a manner that recreates in an Indian setting the magic and mysticism of that great classic of Khalil Gibran, The Prophet.

It is a conversation between Ananda, the mystic lover and Mariann, the star-struck Bostonian who travels to Rishikesh in India in search of love. Written in lucid prose-poetry, it is a glowing tribute to great mystical poets like Gibran and Tagore.

In a word torn by territorial strife and religious rancour, this likely to find its niche in the hearts and minds of readers around the world.


The Circle of Love will bring tears to your eyes. The words speak to me like music.
-Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Winner of Grammy Award, 1994

The Circle of Love is Music in al its profound beauty. The content, with all its freshness, surely belongs to a thought leader.
- Atul Chandra, Resident Editor, Times of India

Seeing the passion of the river and the lover's final annihilation in its flowing stream is The Circle of Love that Debashis presents as an eloquent dialogue in free verse.
- Muzaffar Ali, Film Director
