The Mystic Sinners, a rare work of fiction on mysticism and tantra, based on extensive research done by author Proyashi Barua, is now available in audio format as well. The book was already available in print and electronic formats.
For her research, Barua travelled extensively to the two main centres of tantra in India–Varanasi and Kamakhya, and put together a formidable storyline around the facts, making the book an unputdownable read, and a good beginner’s guide to the world of tantra and mysticism.
The publisher, Readomania, collaborated with Audible, the leading audiobook seller in India, and converted the book into an audio format that provides entertainment for 8 hrs and 40 minutes.
“The lockdowns have increased the number of people opting for audiobooks and the demand is expected to increase in the near future,” states Dipankar Mukherjee, founder and publishing head, Readomania.
“The audio version is a significant extension of my work as given the constraints of today’s fast-paced life, many people want to hear a book on the go, instead of reading it. The Mystic Sinners is replete with visual imagery and therefore the audiobook has enriched the overall experience of the narrative,” states Proyashi Barua.
Proyashi Barua is a Guwahati-based content writer and consultant. An alumnus of Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication (SIMC), she has worked for about fifteen years in the communications and media industry including The Times of India, Hindustan Times, and an international foreign trade magazine where she served in the capacity of an assistant editor.
