Author Desk Wednesdays 13.9.17 Chirajeet Paul

A fairly accomplished professional in his own right Chirajit believes he has a lot to vent outside the business and technology jargons which has become his survival kit for years.

Chirajit lives in Kolkata with his journalist wife and student daughter, works for in a global consulting firm for his ‘bread and butter’, and frantically scribbles words on paper for what he calls his ‘kebab and biriyani’ – which gets him his social, psychological and spiritual satisfaction.

Chirajit has authored two novels and the third is expected by the end of 2017. A closer look at the subjects of his books will reveal that he doesn’t want to be labelled into any single genre.

• ‘The Obituary of Salim Nabi’ presents a view of the politics around terrorism and secularism in contemporary India through the eyes of a young Muslim protagonist.

• In ‘The Fragrance of Rose’ Chirajit has dealt with the contentious issue of sexual harassment by weaving a gripping story around it.

• Chirajit’s third novel is a dark comedy around philosophical questions involving vulnerability of life, karma and welfare of mankind.

Chirajit has strong views about the world around him which he presents with a lot of wit. His research and empathy for the subjects he writes about shows in the involved narratives.

About the Book:

Rinita Bose is an ordinary middle class girl with extraordinary beauty and unmatched aspirations. While chasing her dreams, she comes face to face with harsh realities. That’s how she learns the valuable lesson – what most men really want. In a twist of fate, she picks up enmity with a powerful man and flees the city. She switches careers and hides her identity behind the garb of Rose to make a place in Bollywood. She earns money, fame, adulation and success. But love eludes her. She witnesses the darkness of life in a drunkard father, a lecherous boss, a scheming producer and a friend who wants to take advantage. But then there are those that she can rely on in the worst of situations, her friends from childhood who stand by her through thick and thin. Those who don’t judge her; just love her unconditionally. Will Rinita be able to find the love she craves for? Or will she be mercilessly crushed for The Fragrance of Rose
