In Ashtami Sujit, a Junior Clerk in the British administration in Calcutta, with his young wife Bina, is forced to migrate to distant and dusty Delhi as the capital of the British Raj shifts. Shanti, born of a forcep delivery process gone horribly wrong, comes into their lives, physically and mentally challenged.
“Shanti sat there in the engulfing darkness desperately holding his dying brother’s hand. A low pitched moan emanated from him; a sound of utter helplessness that ricocheted on the closed doors and windows of the nearby houses, and failing to open them, got lost into the night…”.
Ashtami is part of my forthcoming book, ‘The Chronicler of the Hooghly and other stories’. Should you wish to receive exclusive previews and the chance of winning a free copy of the book, do write to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org

Eagerly waiting for your book, Sir!
Shubhranshu, thank you for taking the time to drop in. I too am looking forward to discerning readers like you reading what I have penned and then commenting on that.
I would love a signed copy of your book please. Are you selling them online yet? Happy to pay express postage as well.
The book is the publisher and under publication. It is expected to be available only by year-end. It would of course remain my pleasure to send you a signed copy as soon as it is available.
