Description

FROM AUTHOR'S PREFACE:

"People wanted to know more about this ancient path. Women seemed to have found a new strength and anchor in the Beloved Witch. - The Raja Ram Mohan Library ordered a hundred copies of the book. But human nature is envious. Within a few months, the committee of the Brahmo Sammilan Samaj sent me a letter excommunicating me. According to them, I had chosen to be a Wiccan. Thus I no longer had the right to step through those hallowed Brahmo portals. I smiled. I wondered if they would next summon me for an inquisition."

"In the meantime, the Wiccan Brigade had set the sensationalists talking, not just all over town, but all over the country. They wished to allege that it was some sort of dark cult but the Wiccan Brigade's supporters were spreading too, like the foam of ocean waves sweeping the sands. We attracted talented people, thinking people, and also those who found in the Wiccan Brigade an anchor for a return to values. For that was my aim — a search for forgotten knowledge and along with that, a return to basic human values through the development of physical, mental and spiritual discipline. I never believed in the rigid or the ritualistic. My way is merely an acknowledgement of our alignment with higher powers. Wicca has always called on the Goddess Power. The Wiccan Brigade was becoming a force to reckon with."

"I personally, have always believed that revenge comes on its own wings to the doer of the malefic. Let the situation rest. Do not exert yourself. The Dark Ally will punish him or her who does you ill. However, from the letters and calls I receive, it would seem that innumerable people believe that redress should be in their own hands, no matter what the consequences. Faith in the more orthodox modes of justice is fading. Also, people are impatient."

“Because I dare to speak, I am hated. But nobody can lift a finger to stop me, for I am wild and care not for consequences and what I say is heard in this country.”

In this startling account of an unusual life, India’s legendary Wiccan, Ipsita Roy Chakraverti, reveals the story of her journey on the Wiccan path and the many personalities she has encountered along the way. Ipsita recounts memories from her own initiation in the Canadian Laurentian mountains, to when she set up India’s first Wiccan academy.

With her trademark honesty and searing wit, Ipsita reveals the true face behind many a mask – from Bollywood scions to Delhi’s political who’s who. This is a book many will love, and many more will fear. Read at your own risk. It is breathtaking.
