South African author, Naufal Khan has just released his debut novel ‘A Deal With Mother Kali.’
The story that is inspired by real life events in South Africa introduces us to Zainul Khan who ends up in a coma after a horrific motor vehicle accident. Doctors ask the family to come to prepare for the worst as Zain’s vitals begin to fail.
The family refuse the prognosis by doctors – they were not prepared to accept this as the end of Zain’s journey on earth. Their arrogance is also steeped in unwavering faith in a higher power & a darker one. While Zainul remained in a coma for 45 days he was wasting away fast, spiritual guidance was being consulted in both Islam and Hindu faiths.
A series of supernatural events unravel as the Hindu Goddess Kali, Islam’s Hazrat Ali & Sathya Sai Baba work in unison in the battle to protect Zainul’s soul from transitioning.
