Holy Writ

While the post-war era has seen a decline in religious faith, many writers of the secular generation have taken to spiritual subjects. For some, it's the mystical lure of the East, for others, the traditional tenets of Christian belief.

Prabhu Guptara talks to writers about their interest in spirituality and speculates on the reasons behind it.
