Jaya Ganga: In Search of the River Goddess

Vijay Singh (Author)
Synopsis Nishant, a young Indian writer living in Paris, journeys down the Ganga, from its source in the Himalayas to the sea. Haunted by the memory of a beautiful Parisienne called Jaya, he plans to write a book about his voyage. On the banks of the Ganga, he chances upon Zehra, a dancing girl in the tradition of the great tawaiffs. Zehra resurrects the memory of Jaya. With Jaya and Zehra inhabiting his mental world, Nishant undertakes an entrancing journey down the Ganga, where he has unexpected encounters with sadhus, boatmen, engineers, vernacular journalists, tawaiffs, pimps, administrators, Pandas, and Hollywood stars like the electioneering Amitabh Bachchan. When Jaya Ganga was first released in France, it took the country by storm and it was hailed as a unique and captivating travelogue which brings the author’s inner and outer worlds together. Rarely before have poetic prose and class journalism been brought together with such effortless and readable ease. Jaya Ganga, also a cult film today, ran for a record 49 weeks in France and has been screened in nearly 40 countries worldwide. A rare and remarkable journey-part pilgrimage, part romantic odyssey-down India’s mightiest river, the Ganga.
