The book narrates the story of the Ganesha looking for a new vahana to accompany him to all the great adventures around the cosmos. After millenniums of service, the great VahanaMushika, holy mount of Lord Ganesha is about to retire to live the rest of his life in meditation. For this reason, 4 young mice (3 months each) are selected from different parts of India: intelligent Anand from Kolkata (selected by Goddess Kali), devoted Kanu from Gujarat (selected by Lord Krishna), brave Karthik from Chennai (selected by the other Vahanas), and compassionate Gitanjali from Uttarakhand (selected by Prakriti, the nature). They will be trained by Master Mushika, they will face demons and terrible dangers, and at the end, just one of them will be elected the next Vahan of Lord Ganesha.
Commenting on the book Alfredo Covelli said, “I am excited to launch my first book in India. I always had a profound interest in the Indian culture and Hindu religion, which inspired me to write this book. VahanaMasterclass is my first book in English, the first for the Indian market, and the first for the children. The book is an epic adventure of four mice and their journey towards becoming Ganesha’s next vahana. It is a sort of Indian Harry Potter with miceand I am hopeful that it will attract the interest of young audience. I suppose this book is inhabited by my love, will and devotion.”
