From times immemorial Shiva and Shakti demand reverence of Indians.  The author has widely covered all temples of Shiva and Shakti traveling from the Himalayas, the abode of Shiva, in the north, to Kanyakumari in the South.  Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh constitute the great triad of Hindu pantheon.  Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva (Mahesh) the destroyer of the Universe.  Shiva holds the trident, the emblem of his supreme power, representing the three gunas-satva, rajas and tamas-through which he commands the world.  He alone is the God of death and resurrection of the flux of being and non-being. 

The world Shakti means power, valour of vital energy.  According to Indian mythology, spiritually Shakti is regarded as Goddess-consort, queen of a deity and also God's active and dynamic form.  Shakti represents the fundamental creative instinct underlying the cosmos and is the energizing force of all divinity.  The entire universe is perceived as being created, penetrated and sustained by two fundamental forces which eternally exist in a perfect, indestructible union in the Tantric Cosmology.  These principle forces or universal aspects are known a Shiva and Shakti. Whether Shakti as Primal Energy originated before Shiva, who is radiatn consciousness and has no origin or end or Shiva as Chaitanya originated before Divine Energy is rather a mystery. 

The sculptures of Shiva and Shakti are sensuous yet sacred.  The present volume attempts to solve the mystery that the contradicting characteristics of both Shiva and Shakti pose for interpretation.

The International Society of Poets and Poems of the Twentieth century. The International Society of Poets invited her to take part in their conventions and symposiums six times. They have published sixteen of her poems and some of them are on poetry. Through her work Mandira Ghosh has tried to reach a point where science meets literature and other branches of the Humanities. She had switched from Mathematics to literature as lines of famous poets T.S. Eliot and P.B. Shelley spread balm to her troubled soul. For her final answer she looked towards the immortal verses in the Upanishads. The protagonist Nandini of this book, finds her icon in Maitreyi of the Upanishads and not in Sita or Sati. She finally says, quoting Robert Frost, You have to believe me because I am a bard.
