Samar : Ek Upanyas
Samar Ghosh's life is shattered in one fell swoop of fate. He must find a way out of the bottomless pit of despair that threatens to devour him. Little does he know that his salvation will lie in change of perspective - a change he must bring about himself in order to survive. Suffering from sleeplessness and in a state of great mental turbulence, he is travelling by train from Mathura to Vidisha to visit Alok Jha, an old friend, at the insistence of his mother. During his visit, Samar observes people and situations around him that deepen his understanding of motives that drive human behaviour. In his own way, he tries to protect Madhur Rawat, the idealist in the book, from falling victim to the same cruel fate that had wrecked his own life. Through wisdom born of experience, Alok's mother inspires him with fresh insights into life and life events. This is a poignant and life-affirming story of a man dealing with demons inside his head and hell outside.
