This modern fable of rural India is a masterly satire on those who live by the lure of gold. Amongst the characters are a pretty girl, a wandering mistrel and a luxuriously mustachioed seth. Skilfully blending fable and reality it delves deep into the human mind.The plot centres around a touchstone given to Meera by her sagacious grandfather. It is believed that the amulet would enable Meera to turn copper into gold, provided she acts kindly as a natural and spontaneous expression of herself. 'Wearing it on your person, if you do an act of kindness, real kindness, then all copper on your body will turn to gold... parted from your arm, the touchstone will be dead, a worthless pebble.'It is hugely entertaining tale, yet it disturbs. It disturbs as a warning and as a prophecy.Printed Pages: 320.
