Indian Writing

A Grasshopper's Pilgrimage spirals in directions unpredictable as it follows its free-spirited and soul-searching protagonist. This tale is host to a delightful motley bunch of characters: sufi babas, smoking hippies, freedom fighters and, foreigners without visas. It is a love story of a woman's inner journey as she circles the feet of her Beloved mountain.
Manjushree has established her own repertoire in the art of grasshopping. Her first calling was writing. The magic of the silver screen enticed her to enroll in the Film Institute. Unable to bear the transition from cinema to video, she escaped to the mountains and studied alternative healing. Her exciting career as a healer was cut short when she fell in love with a patient and married him. Her husband is an artist and he inspires her to write. After making some documentary films and teaching, she went back to her first love, and wrote this novel.
