In the Beginning IS Desire: Tracing Kali's Footprints in Indian Literature

Neela Bhattacharya Saxena

This is a personal exploration by a woman of her spiritual and intellectual heritage. Raised in the tradition of Kali worship that she describes as "pregnant nothingness," she traces Kali's footprints as Desire in Indian literature. Her reading of history and narrative travels an immense landscape – from the Rig Veda and Buddhist stories to Sufi poetry and contemporary novels – in the quest for a goddess who has fascinated her since childhood.
