Flight of the Hilsa
His debut novel, Flight of the Hilsa was released in 2010.
A woman-centric story, it demystifies happiness from a woman's perspective. Avi, the protagonist became a potent reflection of a modern-day, Indian woman. This title earned him critical acclaim as well as commercial success. Launched during a period when pulp fiction was ruling the writing scene in India, Flight of the Hilsa, brought back the romance and writing charm of a bygone era. No wonder, the title represented India at the Frankfurt and Beijing Book Festival under Contemporary Indian Fiction category.
A bold, never before narrative set amidst corporate sleaze, muck, and confused ambitions.
It implores the confusion of a young man from a small town, dreaming of a happy life in a big city, working for a multi-national, assuming it to be the epitome of happiness. The title addressed issues of migration, eroding moral values, the decaying institution of marriage and the need for contentment. All this woven around a spineless corporate world.
A story ahead of its time, it generated raised eyebrows and applaud.
Love is Vodka, A Shot Ain't Enough
A story about Moon, the loon, a rebellious teenage girl who explores love in its true hue.
