ManNe Lagee Maya (મનને લાગી માયા) By Late Shri Harilal Upadhyay...


Book: મનને લાગી માયા (ManNe Lagee Maya)
Type: Social Novel
Price: INR 51.00
Published: 1991
Publisher: Navbharat Sahitya Mandir
Excerpts from ManNe Lagee Maya:
 
Selfishness, egoism, lust and hunger for materialistic wealth are the attributes of a human being which came implanted since birth. The characteristics of desires are such that when a man got what he was wished for, he will not be satisfied, but will be even more hungry. Mind is always want to get the stuff it likes. The hunger for lust is even stronger then the same for power, wealth & pride.
As we know, a man lives with the brain and the body (in the world of reality and fantasy). The characteristics like hopes, desires and obsession are abstract but immortal entities. The incidents happened in one’s life are the results of the same (hopes, desires etc…), and stories are created from the same. The hunger for lust drags one to any extent and changes the way of the living (for the respective fellow). Even incidents are found happened in the society that, hunger for lust results in to suicides also.
The incomplete desires do not get dead with body but the hungry soul lives like shadow in the surrounding. It is known as ghost. The belief about the existence of a ghost is there since the beginning and hence its true up to certain extent. The geniuses and physicians belong to the spiritual land of Bharat (India ) have arranged some religious stuff like "Neelo Daah" to release the ghosts from the custody of hungers (it is even known as "Pitru Moksha"). The worship of ancestors (Pitru Pooja )is wide spread in Bharat(India). The belief about the existence of ghosts found in almost all countries in different variations.
I heard a story related to a ghost, who existed with the abstract body, from an elder named Lalsingh Bapu. I also got to know that the person to whom he told this story earlier, have tired to get the same printed into a newspaper. But the story I got to know contained more details and found trustable. Based on the same, I have created this novel.
Before writing this novel, I have presented this story orally also and the incidents related to that events are also found interesting by the listeners possessing the experience and knowledge of life. It inspired me to craft the stuff into the form of a novel.
The personal lives of people who are considered as celebrity due to their wealth and power, are found unnatural, full of tension. Most of them are found buried under the weight of respect, honor and blind beliefs, and found suffered from the mental disturbances like uncontrolled materialistic happiness and wrong beliefs. In this story, the body of hunger and lust of a young girl named Aditi Alka, finally meets the young person, for whose love, she was desperate. I have also found one more similar story. The ghost story of Mangadawala and Padmavati, who got dead with uncompleted desires and love for each other, and their ghosts are (or were) living in the banyan tree near a village named Chedavad in Saurashtra, is also famous.
This way, this novel is about the existence of ghosts and uncompleted desires. I wrote this novel with my all honest efforts. I believe that this story, reflecting amazing psychological stuff of human being will be liked by the readers.
