Naru, a curious Bengali by birth, was influenced by the presence of large ferocious rivers around his birthplace since childhood. It occurred to him that the rivers of his birthplace have something to say, and he needs to lend a careful ear to the message that the rivers wanted to convey. The 'land of the five male rivers' has a special place in Indian tradition. The ancient Indian scripts and texts contain references to 'the land of five male rivers' that was considered blessed and sacred. Naru grew up by listening and reading many of such texts. Nobody could identify the concerned rivers as well as the location of that region of five male rivers. That issue always eluded the Indians. It was the convergence of many aspects of his life that Naru could see the issue of the land of five male rivers in a new light. This book is about that illusive land of the five male rivers.
