Karan’s impassive behaviour towards society, his inability to face the world boldly led him to be tagged as a lost and mad being. He was thus nick-named by society as ‘MR. INSANE’.
Being subjected to such an inimical life, he decided one night to end his ‘lifeless’ life. Gradually, a headache developed that grew even more severe with every passing moment. While his actions of killing himself could not complete, his tiresome body ultimately led him to fall into a peaceful sleep.
He woke up the next morning which surprised him with unusual gifts. Initially, he was perplexed to notice the bizarre things happening around like a vase suspended in air for a fraction of seconds and dropped just an inch from his feet. Frequency of such magical instances increased with time until he realised that he was the cause.
Who was he? Was this supernatural? Or was that an extension of the theory of telekinesis? The same can be explored in the book that how ‘MR. INSANE’ turns to MR. “IN-SANE”.
