Buddha In A Mercedes

By Mallikarjun B. Mulimani

“It was an unforgettable journey. I travelled in a fast car. A Mercedes. But I would rather have walked, for life whizzed by and the traveller was left with just a tourist brochure…

The drive was a rush, like the kiss long-lost lovers exchange when they meet.

The journey was short, like love’s pleasure blindsided by lust.

I didn’t stop to think that there could be an alternative… a stroll down the countryside…

…reached my destination without the necessity to get somewhere…”

"Mallikarjun B. Mulimani, born on 17 Sept. 1979, is a young electronics and communication engineer turned writer. He initially wrote poems; later took up writing short stories, novellas and novels. So far he has contributed to nine books viz. ‘Abstractions’, ‘The Holy Plumber and Other Stories’, ‘Operation Epiphany – God’s Journey on Earth’, ‘Victims Incorporated – Circles of Sub-consciousness’, ‘Dams Across the Flow’, ‘What Happened to my Creativity?’, ‘Star Ride to Nirvana’, ‘Bhakti Sans Religion – Dilemmas in the Search of One’s True Inner Self’ and ‘Politics – A Love Story’. Four of these books have been published by Writers Workshop, Kolkata, one by Current Publications, Agra, another was self-published by CreateSpace, and his three latest novellas, ‘Star Ride to Nirvana’, ‘Bhakti Sans Religion – Dilemmas in the Search of One’s True Inner Self’ and ‘Politics – A Love Story’ were published by Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd. The author’s style is one in which he feels that brevity is of the essence. In his work, the author wrestles with the aspects of the social milieu, life, love, sex, death, religion, realisation of self and God and other serious issues. The author touches upon the metaphysical side of all the above-mentioned issues whenever he deals with them in his work. He is a serious writer, who also has a very subtle sarcastic wit about him. Even though he is still young, many eminent personalities including the late Prof. U. R. Ananthamurthy have appreciated him."
