A nicely written different book with a unique story Not what I would expect from reading Arnab Ray s blog, but definitely worth a read. Have you ever wanted to know what happens to your life when you are not looking , this line itself speaks so much about this book, which talks about only actions and consequences The fundamental of time is abstract and we never realize that We human beings just want to know what are we doing with our time, but is that really important What if there is another place where the time is not even a dimension Will we then think about only actions and consequences, perhaps The setup of the book Have you ever wanted to know what happens to your life when you are not looking , this line itself

writes the blog As the name suggests Yatrik , is about the journey of Anushtup, the protagonist through life and death It has an interesting way of narration The book is based on knowing what happens

transient phase between between life and death.The conversation between Anushtup and Poonam s father sounded like a conversation between hero and heroine s father from a typical hindi movie Except for that, it was quite an interesting read I must say I had Yatrik lying on my bedside table forthan 6 months before I picked it up, and that too, only because I know the author slightly that s my disclaimer, by the way I was stuck in a period history genre and I just couldn t bring myself to read it because it was such a departure from what I was in the mood for I struggled through the first chapter, which is the mood setter, unable to snap out of my period phase It just refused to hold my attention The second chapter was as laborious I had Yatrik lying on my bedside table forthan 6

that the blurb didn t already give Anushtup Chatterjee is dead and doesn t know how he got here A kind co traveller helps him make sense of the world he finds himself in And also of the world he left behind Arnab writes about a Calcutta he grew up in, and it s hard to miss the nostalgia In a sense this book like The Mine is run through with a vein of philosophy actions, consequences and little time for getting maudlin If you re hoping to leave your brain home while reading this, don t The story weaves back and forth and each connection brings home the fact that a lot of effort went into this book A problem I had earlier and one that I continue to contend with, is that his writing is often stilted Dialogue was a problem in The Mine and here too, one senses a certain stiffness Almost as though the entire book was first written in Bengali and later translated into English I doubt that is the case though, so I m going to wonder aloud, why the editors did nothing to improve on this As an Indian writing in English, I think he took a great risk in breaking from type and not writing an easy to flip through crowd pleaser But he s certainly got a certain section of us hooked on his writing I think that like a lot of writers who come from Bengal, he gives a lotback to literature than most contemporary writers do From Van Damme to Satre, Dante to the Mahabharata, the references flow fast and thick and it s a pleasure to walk with this writer, who doesn t dumb his books down to ensure that they fly off the rack at the airport Three books down, each different to the other, each thoughtful, I can t wait for his next Hurry up, Arnab Good one Underrated book of the first 3 by the author, perspectives into the life characters is portrayed in such a vivid way that it leaves you wantingof it Gives a very good takeaway message A book which would give you something to linger upon even after you finish it Good one Underrated book of the first 3 by the author, perspectives

never a dull moment There s action, romance, thrills, dirty politicians, and fat cops There s fate running a hand through key events, and there s love and longing and maa ka pyaar And yet, it is as unlike any Bollywood melodrama that seems to have a mash of all of these because there sdepth and character building than years of Bollywood put together.When I read The Mine and Mahabharata Murders, I felt like Arnab is not a writer who s making stuff up as he goes along It feels like he has studied the craft of fiction writing He knows how to flesh out a plot and to bring all threads to a cogent conclusion He has carefully built each character with fine tools Nothing is off hand or careless And for that brilliance, I admire him and look up to him The book describes the challengea faced by principled pepoles It takes you through the journey of life and death of the protagonist A different way of telling the story and making readers realize few important lessons in life A sensible story Very good take on the people lives Nothing new in the story, a brilliant boy and how this cruel world ruin his life, its all about that but the way story unfold really kept you gripped and engaged The end was unexplained and abrupt that only disappointment I have.
