It struck very personal note with me. I have experienced two such events in my own life. I was feeling so guilty about them since I did not know that such instances are not so rare after all. I can now face reality of life without any fear of exposure.
The most memorable scene is the exposure of a Guru and superstitious people who frequent them. At one time it appeared as if the Guru would turn out to be the father himself since he is not seen at all but the story line is much better than that outcome. When a visitor to the Guru becomes sick every one calls for a doctor rather the Guru who is supposed to have supernatural powers.
I hope I can live more happily after knowing how ordinary has been my own life.
