The Sage and the Housewife
 
THE SAGE AND THE HOUSEWIFE
By
Shanta Kelker 
This book on U.G.Krishnamurti brings a whiff of fresh air in an atmosphere infested withself-proclaimed godmen, gurus and pseudo-religious seekers. If you like to tread a path ofadventure risking your pet beliefs, assumed certainties and habitual hypocrisies, you will lovethis unique work by a simple and ordinary housewife. Her spontaneous encounters with theenigmatic sage are full of wit and humor. The amusing episodes transport you to newerheights of crystal clear vision of yourself. U.G.'s straightforward but ego-shattering statementsgive you no scope to duck out of real life situations leaving you to face life as it comes. Within these pages U.G.Krishnamurti emerges not as a guru or a godman dishing out homiliesand commandments but a person in flesh and blood. He is a zen master without a school andat large. But there is "something" about him which defies description. Nevertheless the readerscannot fail to notice the freshness and vitality of his words which seem to spring from a source'unknown'. However, there is no occultification or mystification surrounding U.G. Thefragrance of his simplicity and openness is spread throughout the book.At last, here is a book that is refreshing, radical, unconventional, as it clears a lot of muckspewed forth in the name of God, religion, enlightenment and related matters.
