A Spoke In The Wheel
Author: Amita Kanekar
Publisher: Navayana
Published: 2015
Paperback, 468 pages
This is a story of that story, of the Buddha as seen by his admirers, among them an ordinary monk, one of the questioners, and an extraordinary king, who seemed to have all the answers. In unassuming but agile prose, Amita Kanekar takes us to the time of the Buddha, then to that of Ashoka, and back again. The wheel is in motion, we move from one to the other, spinning with the wheel, becoming one with change.
