Overview

She was a woman whose intense love of God consumed her to such a degree that she abandoned her traditional role as wife and mother. She came from one of India's foremost families, the much revered Tagore's. She was beautiful, talented and highly creative. She was a gifted artist and had an extraordinary voice but had no interest in pursuing a carrer. Her entire life was a personal struggle between her quest for God and the demands of family life. She was mysterious and mystical, unconventional and detached. At the same time there was something deeply moving and extraordinary about her and her complete submission to the "Divine Madness."

A daughter's compelling account of being a witness to the profound inner changes that her mother goes through, this is the story of two women and the spiritual paths they chose to take in life. While those paths were different and at times divergent, they came together in uniquely compelling ways. The charting of that relationship, with all its joys and conflicts, the loss and the pain and ultimately the healing and reconciliation, mirrors the relationship of so many mothers and daughters.
