Ipsita Roy Chakraverti is quite a famous name in the Wicca world and she has done some path breaking revelations and experimentation to prove the existence of the other dimension. Now, I am not saying it is completely believable by everyone but none can deny too! Together with her daughter Deepta Roy Chakraverti she leads a brigade of enthusiasts in the field. While the brigade is a not-so-secret anymore, the practices and the rituals followed are never out and this only keeps the curiosity alive for anyone who gets to know about the “society”.
It was just last year December that I got my hands on their books and I had to read them instantly!
Now the books are collections of stories of their encounters and let me tell you the language is quite convincing and picturesque. The stories are carefully written with conviction and insights that might not be for the conditioned and prejudiced minds. It comes off as very harsh but you gotta read to get the points clear. The stories are also their travel journals. I believe this really amps up the selling point. For every place, their personal experience is beautifully journal-ed and it gives a lot of peeps into special nooks and lore.

It takes a lot of courage to believe that you are different. What is even challenging is to work towards using those unique qualities. This mother-daughter duo definitely knows how to do that and use their best of their knowledge to play the perfect mediator between the known and the unknown.
If you are a believer in the possibility of the other world, spirits, crafts that make or break lives or just simply a reader of all of these, you would dig these 2 books. They will definitely consume you!
