Dream of a Perfect World


An explorer visits the planet Eleutheria, an extremely lush world that has been engineered by technologically advanced Jains to be perfect, in the sense of having no predators. My idea in writing the story was to create a kind of Hindu Christmas Carol. Instead of confronting the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future the protagonist experiences the three malas of Hinduism, Maya, Karma and Anava.

On a personal note, this is my favorite story (by me). It took exactly 30 years to write! My hope is that it turns into a short animation one day, ideally both 2 and 3D/VR.

I reserve all rights to the story EXCEPT for its use as a story line for graphic novels and illustrations. If you illustrate this story contact me and I’ll post a link to your work.

All the best
