Description

About the Book :

When Aryan Roy stepped into college life to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a successful engineer, little did he know that he was in for a journey of a lifetime. Anushka and Kaira turn his sojourn into a memorable one – in both good and not-so-good senses.

The Storm in my Mind... is a collective narrative of events, habits, stereotypes and idiosyncrasies revolving around the contemporary society of Kolkata. It is a story of love as much as it is of hatred, passion, friendship, trust, misunderstandings, nostalgia and love for his city. It is the story of Aryan, his Kolkata and his mellowing heart that makes confessions of the times he has seen.

About the Author :

Ayaan Basu is a striving author, an avid blogger and a columnist fighting his days between MNC-clad work schedule, writing and veracious travelling routine. Being single, apart from writing, he was also a singer/guitarist for a Kolkata based rock band - Driftwood.

Having to his credit a collection of Bengali poems as a book and several short stories, this is his first attempt at penning a novel.

Let me start with the positive aspects of the book. The two most striking features of the book is its small length and the spacing between the lines. And that's just it. No more positive aspects. Everything from cover design to the story are big downers. The cover design seemed interesting and deep on-line, but in reality it is just another work of immature designing. I hoped at least there was something about Bengalis and Kolkata city, but then there is nothing about them. About Kolkata, there was like half a dozen or so places which were detailed with their history, which seemed more like a 'Crtl C - Crtl V' work from an on-line article, because it didn't quite sync with the author's writing style. But then there is also little about Bengalis. Nothing deep and interesting. Finally the story was a disappointment, too. It was just like any other story. Any man who is bored on a dull evening can come up with this story. The author added a twist at the end, trying to excite the reading, but let alone excited, I was in a hurry to get done with the book ASAP. Overall, this is a disgrace to the name of Bengali writers...

I grabbed the book from store just by looking at the name and off course the author's name was known for me but I was not able to recollect correctly. Taking a look at the backcover , I remembered the face who sang "Telephone" in one of the program in Gorky Sadan with his band long back. Excited to read the book and finished it in less than three hours and I must say , I am in love with Aryan for being from nobody to a true gentleman till the end . Also a kudos to you to write about your own city in-spite of staying away from it. Knowing you from a rockband singer to a writer , I envy your hardwork to write a book which only has pure sets of emotions attached to every single page. All the best and looking forward to read more from you

Well, nothing to say about the cover design and the photography. The book cover itself content a strong message. Thanks to Srishti and Team once again, for giving me this wonderful Reading Experience. 'A Relationship, can be complicated by time, but can be reliable by situations.' My cities beauty disclose with a proper Art. By a Spectacular Artist. Ayaan done a great job. For an Author its a very difficult job to narrate two things simultaneously, but Ayaan paint it by his own with class. Nothing, more chit chat massala, which makes This Book more Compaq. But, I, personally little dissatisfied with the ending. A message is visible, but a little bid more Emotion could give The Strom in my Mind... Ami Kolkatta and Confessions a little charge. Though, Its a must read for us to know about our city. 'We can overcome any situation in our life, all we need to do is a proper execution.' Well done Ayaan, Looking forward to read more from you.Completed Just Now!!! Well, nothing to say about the cover design and the photography. The book cover itself content a strong message.

Bro, just finished reading ur first master-piece. To be precise, a well-written novel with a great blend of broken relationships and the manner in which our heart tries to deal with it. The world's really a short place and we have innumerable such instances where we catch up with faces whom we dread to meet sometime. A gripping novel right from the very beginning, it was great to read the unfolding of events. After reading ur story, I could connect with it, coz at some point of time even I was into a similar situation. You too know about it, so the rest is history. Dude, very well written and all the best for ur future endeavors. The storm in my mind still continues, though.........! Just one song that I would like to dedicate to this situation, where I still find myself to be in, after almost a decade... "Dil sambhal Jaa zara, Phir Mohabbat Karne Chala Hai tu"...! There's this one question that still lingers: Do we really "Move On" after a broken relationship? Hope, that you can answer it better, may be with a novel, someday!

Just finished!! Cover design is just awesome. would love to connect with Ayushi for my next.. :) Ayaan Basu has done a great job. Ami Kolkata & Confessions .. shows true spirit of friendship ... few heartbreaking incidents... but overall reflects a message... " situation handling power makes a man perfect!! " Moreover, Success of any novel depends on the narration style and simplicity of the language the author uses. The simple narration and writing style makes the story beautiful. As the story is not at all boring we can read it in a single stretch. The story plot however is nice and makes you expect more... A must read !!
