If a soul is intangible and resides within our hearts and minds, can it be stolen? More importantly, who do you turn to when you feel your soul slipping away from you? In this fantastical, semi-autobiographical book, Vishwa Prakash addresses these questions. When Vishwa feels a mysterious force sweep away his soul, he embarks on a spiritual quest and appeals to an unusual being for help-the devil, who is not quite what Vishwa expected.Vishwa's dialogue with the devil takes him deep within himself, in search of answers to his dilemma. The devil has an unorthodox viewpoint, which intrigues one moment and enlightens the next.Peppered with inspirational quotes from around the world, Who Stole My Soul? provides a fascinating interpretation of the purpose of the human soul and the meaning of life itself and may just inspire you to make a spiritual quest of your own.

More About the Author


In spite of having enjoyed professional success as a textile designer, Vishwa was plagued by shyness and found himself socially gauche in relating to others. He opted to become a laughter therapist to learn the right social icebreaking tools, but the results were unforeseen. What he thought to be a "comedian's caper" led to a deeply moving catharsis for himself and his audience. He realized that he had become a healer and the act of helping others was actually healing his own troubled self. He had lost his soul to the act of reaching out and touching the souls of others.
Not satisfied with the professional success he attained, he turned to a deeper, more philosophical quest: searching for the meaning of life.

Brought up in a religious home, Vishwa took an unorthodox approach in discovering his higher self through charitable giving and positive psychology, where the meaning of life is to find meaning in life.

In his new book, Who Stole my Soul?: A Dialogue with the Devil on the Meaning of Life, (978-0-9823140-5-0, Synergy Books, November 2009, $19.95), businessman and laughter therapist Vishwa details his journey of spiritual awakening through a dialogue with an unconventional source of wisdom, the devil - a literary device he uses to explore the issues with no fixed answers, like who is God, the cycle of birth and death, why bad things happen to good people and goods things to bad people.

Who Stole my Soul? is a semi-autobiographical spiritual quest, detailing Vishwa's experiences that lead him to find meaning and spiritual joy in the simplest of things. Peppered with inspirational quotes from great thinkers, the book encourages others to seek happiness through finding and following their own unique life purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars window to our soul....... November 9, 2009
Format:Hardcover
I am impressed by the novel manner in which Vishwa Prakash has addressed the inner turmoil common in all of us. The solutions proposed are equally stirring. For once I can relate to the author as an everyday person with everyday problems. I find Who Stole my Soul to be a great source of healing the inner spirit.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is a beacon of light onto matters of our spirit and soul. This book sheds light on life's dilemmas and offers practical solutions for soul healing.
I have read Conversations with God . This book is Conversations with the anti-God with a surprise ending! The author has used the Dialogue with the Devil to address questions that many of us dare not pose. I have a traveling job and I take this book with me wherever I go because every time I turn the pages, there is something new to learn and to treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Summer Must Read August 13, 2010
Format:Hardcover
I was thrilled to read WHO STOLE MY SOUL. At first I thought WOW this is something to do with the devil, but as the pages turned it became more and more interesting and I was enthralled to read about the vast knowledge of the anti-God that lives in all of us. This is a totally new way of presentation and I've gained a lot of knowledge and wisdom from this book. It was most unusual and powerfully effective. I think it makes the perfect gift and I'll talk to some friends about it.

I can easily identify with the author and he's right when he starts out saying that "if you find yourself mirrored in the pages, then it's no coincidence" - because I recognized myself right from the start. A good book is not that you read, but that reads you, and this one certainly did! I'm glad to recommend it to anybody as something which is timeless and full of precious pearls of wisdom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting colloquy between author and the devil February 2, 2010
Format:Hardcover
Author : Vishwa Prakash

"Who Stole my soul" is a dialogue between the author - Vishwa Prakash and Mr. Devil (the anti-God). The book begins with a confused state which the author finds himself in - a conflict going on between his selfish and selfless states. He is desperately in search of his true self. Till 50 years of his life, he happily indulged in chasing money and fame of accumulating more and more worldly accolades but gradually these same things start losing their charm and he finds himself stagnating emotionally and spiritually. He feels his soul has left him in search of some more fulfilling prospects. Now he too feels drawn towards the philanthropic path that his soul has chosen and he experiences a warm glow within him in giving and helping his fellow beings through the medium of laughter yoga.

In an attempt to get his thinking more clear on the issues that are bothering him, he decides to hold a one-on-one with Mr. D, who pleasantly turns out to be quite unlike the author's notion of him. And begins an odyssey through which Mr. D very nonchalantly takes the author to unraveling of the mysteries of life in a gradual and subtle manner. The questions about - God, His need to create an anti-God, journey of souls through various lifetimes, significance of religion in the life, true meaning of our lives - get answered beautifully when actually the author is taken within himself in pursuit of the solutions. As the conversation progresses, comes the awareness of - logical yet ignored goal of finding, feeling and feeding the soul.

A unique way of presentation and while being a part of the conversation readers may feel their own questions getting answered on many occasions.
