About The Book

Two lost souls retreat from the inhumanity of urban life in 1990s India, deciding to shed their names and become hermits in a remote forest abode, living among animals and planting trees. However, they soon discover that the serenity that surrounds them is deceptive – that the land and the people around them are slowly succumbing to a slow poisoning. Man and Woman realize that they must re-enter the world of humanity and join the struggle against the corporations and governments turning paradise into hell. Moving from myth to history and back again, Swarga is the tale of the early days of the people’s epic struggle against endosulfan-spraying in north Kerala.
