Colors of Life in Black and White

After all the writing, all the dreaming, all the planning and all the pushing from friends, my first book was published on Feb 17, 2015 – about a month ago. I have been going through a lot of options, talking to a few publishing houses and finally, after over 3 years since I thought first of publishing the book, I had my first published book, in hard copy, in my hands. It was a feeling very different, to hold the book in my hands, with my name printed on it.

And then, my parents came home. I handed over the first copy to Maa and that was it – a dream coming true! Maa was happy, but not exuberant because of two important reasons:
1. The book is not in Bengali
2. The book is not available at the Agartala Book Fair

Well, I could not have done anything about the point 2, but I could have definitely published the first book in Bengali. I did not think about this aspect, though. But then… not sure when and how would I be able to do that. Anyways, my next books would feature a Bengali book for sure. Only time will tell…

I want to thank all my friends who have helped me designing the book and those who have read me and given me their feedback regarding that. This will surely help me in writing more and writing good.

The book is available both in print version and as eBook. Here are the links, where you can buy it from:
