The diabolic Vipul, professor in a management school in Ahmedabad, runs a bizarre personal growth programme.

Using a mesmeric mix of fiery personal magnetism, potent sexuality, piercing intellect and tantric power to manipulate and control the lives of those who catch his fancy, Vipul’s hold on his victims is complete. Colleagues and students, transfixed-and then diminished-by his Osho-like insight into their innermost secrets, return year after year, like lambs to slaughter, to the programme that he runs.

A tautly written and eerily perceptive novel that weaves the individual stories of Vipul’s victims and the relation they share with Vipul and each other, to reveal the dark truth of the master’s own flawed persona, Vijay Nair’s Maser of Life skills is a cryptically layered and darkly suggestive master-piece; a cold-blooded probe into man’s inherent malevolence.


VIJAY NAIR, an organization consultant, also writes and directs plays. HE runs Still Waters, a theatre group based in Bangalore. His first collection of plays, The Gloomy Rabbit and Other Plays was published in 2003. He is married and has one son.
