From Dior to Dharma
A novel by Shruti Bakshi
Through Maya’s story, From Dior to Dharma contemplates the human condition in modern society in which we are egged on to chase the ‘next big thing’ only to find it doesn’t hold the everlasting happiness that was promised. Maya’s transition from Dior to Dharma describes in intimate rawness, the inner struggles and seeking of one who has outgrown a life fixated on attaining material goodies and is looking for answers about life and purpose.
From Dior to Dharma brings out many deep truths from the spiritual traditions in an authentic and immediately relatable way. Penetrating insights into life are refreshingly shared against the backdrop of Maya’s travels – from the Parisian metro or the Redwood forests to the busy streets of Delhi to ashrams in Kerala and the Himalayas.
