    Dance of the Spirits reveals the hidden meanings, motivations and secrets of Theyyam, a magico-religious ritual native to the Malabar region of Kerala, India. The book is an outcome of many years of on-ground research and brings out socio-cultural asymmetries that characterized pre-modern Kerala. This gripping tale tells us about the psychology of the human mind and its darker niches.

    Out of the three central characters, Maria is perhaps the most important one. Dressed in ornate headgears and colourful intricate make-up, the Theyyam performers take centre-stage in the sleepy district of Kannur in Kerala. As the performers leap in the air and perform an aggressive dance, they enter a state of trance and turn into 'gods'. The onlookers look transfixed. It is an experience so fantastic that Maria could not have asked for more.

    On a trip to India to do a thesis on Theyyam, a ritual form of spirit worship, the research scholar from the United States forges an intimate bond with Krish, who acts as her local guide. Together, they explore the mystic world of spirits, serpent-gods and forbidden secrets. But unknown to them, a grand plan is being executed in which they are nothing but mere pawns.
