Belakininda Kattaledege, a kannada novel.

Though it starts as a love story, in fact this book revolves around a person who is a senior student of spirituality.  He has not only imbibed spiritual values within himself but also has instilled them in the society where he lives.

Our shastras say ‘Tamasoma jyothirgamaya’ (dark to light).  But the base of the light is dark, i.e., ‘Tam’.   Hence one has to proceed towards that ‘Darkness’.
