About The Book

"The Gods We Cannot Be" is a poignant exploration of loss, faith, and the search for meaning in the face of adversity. Nine-year-old Khudesh finds himself orphaned after the tragic loss of his mother in an accident, adding to the absence left by his father's earlier demise. Struggling to make sense of his grief and the unfairness of life, Khudesh embarks on a quest to confront God and demand answers for his suffering.

As Khudesh traverses through the labyrinthine paths of his grief, he encounters a myriad of characters who claim to embody divinity. Each encounter presents Khudesh with a new challenge, as he grapples with the complexities of faith and the manipulation of those who seek to exploit his vulnerability. From charismatic charlatans to enigmatic mystics, Khudesh must discern truth from illusion amidst the cacophony of voices clamoring for his belief.

Yet, amidst the chaos, Khudesh's unwavering determination leads him to a profound encounter with the true essence of divinity. Through moments of doubt and revelation, Khudesh discovers that the gods he sought were not external entities to be appeased or blamed, but rather reflections of the human condition and the inherent resilience of the human spirit.

In a climactic revelation, Khudesh comes face to face with the ineffable presence of the divine, finding solace not in answers to his questions, but in the acceptance of life's inherent mysteries. "The Gods We Cannot Be" is a moving testament to the power of faith, resilience, and the enduring quest for meaning in a world marked by loss and uncertainty.
