When a pure soul is touched by decadence… 
The boy Rakash and his mentor, Otan the elephant, lived a gentle life of enlightenment in a jungle enclave of children and elephant teachers. Then the disappearances began. 
Rakash is a gifted Orange Soul, destined to bridge souls with The One Who Created All. 
But when he is kidnapped, Rakash is exposed to the corrupt city of Laeta and later the 
technologically-advanced Korobat, two cities obsessed with pleasures of the senses. 
Bent on fulfilling his calling as soul-journey bridge, Rakash naively tries to teach these 
city-dwellers about enlightenment of the soul. But their idea of “enlightenment” isn’t the 
same as his. And his “gift” intrigues their pleasure masters… 
…In the end, who will teach whom?


The Decadence is a story about how we can become better human beings by embracing concepts such as Love, Compassion and Gratitude for all our brothers and sisters. One Who Created All will always look after us if faith in Him is strong and unwavering.
