Blood Words / A Warrior’s Walk is an epic work of fiction. It is the book which leads to the film of the same title, the script of which has already been written. It is about a woman of the elements; she encompasses everything in us and represents our most basic selves. She is complex and simple and is ready to live, love and learn at every moment. She is the lives and cries of two separate beings in one- one bound in social structures and set molds, and the other following her inner guide and her intuitive eye. Blood Words reflects a notion of space and time as perceived through the eyes of a young Indian woman. Through her the nature of dualities inherent in each one of us is explored and interweaves the struggles and textures of two cultures experienced and lived in one individual. She is seen within both cultures and visual and emotional montages in both ambiances reflect the textures and struggles of a warrior woman, an individual, and an artist who follows her call and her luminosity. She has a startling ability to make you think beyond yourself. She walks on a path that declares us to evolve or dissolve. She is the fallen Apsara- a female spirit of the clouds who came to earth to give mankind more. She walks with the east and the west and holds the essence of both cultures within her. And though at times in moments of despair, anguish and pain when part of her looks back and longs to return to safety and warmth of her own culture, like a magnificent bird of flight she rises from the ashes of herself and conquers all nostalgia and sentimentality.

Editorial Reviews

"Blood Words is a bit dangerous. It is knowledge that the owners and spin-doctors of today's cultural modes desire to stigmatize as "exotic". Yet unlike the mediocre nebula of today's chirping self-styled gurus; Neogy's inward journey is communicated with the indestructible awareness that can only be achieved through experiencing life's vexing tribulations with the innocence of a child. Blood Words is a resonance beyond it's pages. It is tributary, mapping the rivets and ruts, bends and straights of the human soul. Written with a superhuman grasp of memory and emotional signals; perhaps the reason Neogy's experimentations in the heart of creativity melt my iciest doubts and skepticisms, is because this wild, dizzying choreography we call life perpetually renders the author's hypotheses correct. Prepare to be taken far, far away to wonderful, unreasonable places you never knew lay inside of you." - Connor MacDonald
