  • Distraught

    300.00
    Contemplative, down-to-earth, and abiding, Manoj moves away from his village when he is still a child. But then comes the trouble and the dilemma. He falters, he rises, he admires, he smiles, he fails, and witnesses events that scar him for a lifetime. He is tossed between different people and different ideologies. His conscience fails him as he moves between cities, struggles to earn his daily bread, and makes choices that push him to the extreme and define him forever. This extremely relevant coming-of-age novel is a representation of the emotional state of so many young people in their teens and their twenties. It has a lucid narrative, and yet contains embedded bits of a complex layered commentary on human psychology. Distraught brings forth a story from the times when a lot of Indians had started moving out from their homes to study in different cities, and how they struggled to keep their identity intact. Many made through it, and many succumbed to the ever growing emotional and social burden, and a consequential conflict with their own values. Read this wonderfully promising debut novel and delve deeper into the mind of the narrator. Flip its pages, accompany Manoj on his journey and ask yourself: What would you do, were you in his place?
  • What would you do if your new beginning seems to be the end of something precious, if you lose the only person you’ve ever had as family, if the cost of the love you seek is compromising on who you are? Kavya ~ On some days in your life, you don’t get a say in what happens to your dreams, you just have to swallow the lump in your throat and the pain in your heart and just let life lead you to the place it’s meant to. Maahi ~ The most basic thing about tragedy is, that it stuns you into the kind of grief, that your entire life, the things that mattered to you, the things that used to upset you, concern you or made you happy seem like a huge bunch of lies. Ananya ~ I believe there is a certain point in a person’s life, where they sincerely, almost desperately wish for a magic wand or a mystical creature to shed some light on what went wrong. A state where your entire world is overshadowed by the fact that you failed. And while, no one openly blurts it out on your face, you can feel it by the way people look at you. On a sudden trip to Srinagar, they find each other. Will they be able to find themselves? Flamingos Beyond PINK is a striking tale of self-discovery, heartbreak, longing, friendship and courage. The courage it takes to become who you are.
  • For avyukta falling in love was everything. She is vibrant that way, but she never knew where to find love until she met those eyes. Cosmos makes plans for us every minute and we take them as mere coincidences. For Karthik it was surreal when he saw her again. There are millions out there and it’s never so simple to look at a pair of eyes and decide “It’s meant to be”. When lives get intertwined destiny always comes up with a new plan

    लिखना तो काफी पहले शुरू कर दिया था, कलम ने चौदह साल का वनवास गुजारा और तब उसे एक पहचान मिली, संसार के एक कोने से आ रही एक पुकार के रूप में। आज की तारीख में मेरे तीन कहानी संग्रह आपके सामने आ गए हैं और साथ में ये दो कविता संग्रह भी। मेरी कविताओं के आठ संग्रह तैयार हो गए थे लेकिन मैंने दो-दो संग्रह के एक संग्रह बनाकर उन्हे निकालने की सोची है। मेरा दूसरा कविता संग्रह तेरी ही तस्वीर मैं लोकार्पित करता हूँ। ये जिस तस्वीर की बात कह रहा हूँ, कविता संग्रह में उसी का अनछुआपन उसी की मासूमियत झलकती है। मुझे पता है कि जीवन की ये तस्वीरें कितनी खूबसूरत होती हैं! शुरुआत की हिचक, भूलें और वो बचपना है इस संग्रह में जो रंग बनकर उस तस्वीर में विद्यमान है। कुछ कविताएं यहाँ ऐसी हैं जिनमे बहुत प्रौढ़ता झलकती है मतलब आप समझ सकते हैं कि ये बाद की हैं। कुछ कविताएं गलतफहमियों के दौर की हैं तो कुछ जीवन की अटल सच्चाइयों की। मैं आज भी इन्हे याद करता हूँ तो कई बार शरीर मे स्फूर्ति आती है तो कई बार चलते-चलते भरे बाज़ार में चाल थम जाती है। ये तेरी नहीं, तेरे चेहरे में मेरी ज़िंदगी की तस्वीर है। शब्दों और संवेदनाओं के बाज़ार में मैं इन्हे उतार रहा हूँ।  
  • लिखना तो काफी पहले शुरू कर दिया था, कलम ने चौदह साल का वनवास गुजारा और तब उसे एक पहचान मिली, संसार के एक कोने से आ रही एक पुकार के रूप में। आज की तारीख में मेरे तीन कहानी संग्रह आपके सामने आ गए हैं और दो कविता संग्रह की शुरुआत मैं पश्चात मेरे हाथ से कर रहा हूँ। मेरी कविताओं के आठ संग्रह तैयार हो गए थे लेकिन मैंने दो-दो संग्रह के एक संग्रह बनाकर उन्हे निकालने की सोची है। पश्चात मेरे हाथ संग्रह को मैं नया या कि पहली रचना नहीं कह सकता, जिस तरह से कहानियों के बारे में कहता हूँ लेकिन इनमे से कई कविताएं एक दौर की शुरुआत जरूर थे, एक धीमी शुरुआत। कविताओं में ये सब लक्षित होता है। ज़्यादातर कवितायें व्यक्ति के लिए हैं कुछ राजनैतिक रंग भी है, महीने भर का राशन जैसी कविताओं मे ये दिखता है। कई कविताओं मे खुद मेरे लिए आश्चर्यजनक है कि विचारों की जबर्दस्त तीक्ष्णता है...ऐसा होता है जब लोग एक क्षण में कई क्षण गुजारते हैं और अपने जीवन के विभिन्न दौरों में मैंने ये खूब किया है। मेरा खुद का सोचना है कि मैं लेखक से पहले कवि रहा हूँ और खुद से आशा करता हूँ कि मेरी कविताएं मेरी उम्मीदें पूरी करें। जीवन के उस महायुग के पश्चात जो मेरे हाथ है वो आपके सामने है।  
  • Brijesh is a decorated police officer; an expert in tracking mobile calls and electronic surveillance. On his inputs, paramilitary forces and police become successful in eliminating a group of dreaded terrorists in J&K. Soon he gets out of turn promotion to the post of Inspector. He's assigned another case to crack the nexus of cricket betting. Encouraged by his promotion, he dedicates himself to this case - almost forgetting his own family. And this proves counterproductive to him. One day when he reaches his home, the excerpt below speaks volumes of the state of affairs between him and his wife Anu. But she didn't care and started her outburst, "I've suffered a lot during these years," and stared at him, "Why have you come now and how can I trust you?" skeptical, she asked again giving him her hateful look. He continued to stare at the floor and she at his face. Soon, a drop of pain emerged at the brims of his eyes and the tears on either of his cheeks traversed like a channel of a seasonal rivulet and fell on the ground. Perhaps the stony floor also cried out of pain and heat-heat of atonement, disgust, self-reproach, insult, feeling of used and misused, deceit, losing his wife and kids-all contained into his tears. But Anu didn't listen that cry, her heart didn't melt, and she slammed the door right at his face. Why did it happen? - Read the novel.

    मैं अपने तीसरे कहानी-संग्रह की दुनिया में आपका स्वागत करता हूँ। कुछ कहानियाँ शब्दों से ही नहीं, स्वभाव से भी बड़ी होती हैं और जीवन के एक पूरे के पूरे दौर की व्याख्या कर जाती हैं। ऐसी ही कहानियां 'संक्षिप्त' में संकलित हैं। ये सारी कहानियाँ मेरी ज़िंदगी का झूठा-सच हैं, मतलब अनुभूतियों से सच और पात्रों से झूठ। इन्हें मैंने इतने करीब से जिया है कि इनपर मेरा एक सौ एक प्रतिशत अधिकार है। मैं इन्ही कहानियों पर उपन्यास बनाने की कोशिश कर रहा हूँ जो एक-एक करके आपके सामने आएंगी। एक-दो कहानियाँ पुरानी हैं और शेष कहानियाँ नयी हैं। इनके कथ्य, इनकी शैली, इनके शब्दों में वो सारे परिवर्तन परिलक्षित होते हैं जो मुझमें जीवन के इस कठिन दौर में चलते-चलते आए थे। ये कहानियाँ ज़्यादातर प्रेम-कहानियाँ हैं और अगर कुछ और भी है तो उसका भी आधार प्रेम ही है।
  • दोस्तों ! 'एक आग का दरिया' के बाद मेरी ये दूसरी कृति, एक कहानी संग्रह, 'सावन की एक साँझ' आपके सामने प्रस्तुत है। दस कहानियाँ हैं इसमे जिनमे ज़्यादातर नई हैं मतलब पिछले तीन-चार सालों मे लिखी गईं...ये उस दौर की कहानियाँ हैं जब जीवन के ज़ीरो माईल पर खड़े होकर मैंने सावन की मूसलाधार बारिश में भींगना स्वीकार किया था। कभी खुद से सीखा, कभी दूसरों ने सिखाया और मैं पहले की तरह लिखता गया। भगवान ने ऐसी ज़िंदगी दी है कि कहानियों की कभी कोई कमी नहीं हुई...कभी-कभी लगता है ज़िंदगी कम पड़ जाएगी, मेरी लिखने के लिए और आपकी पढ़ने के लिए। सावन की वो साँझ ऐसी साँझ थी जो जीवन के एक दौर और एक कहानी संग्रह की पहचान बन गयी...उस साँझ ने मुझे सुबह का मतलब समझाया और समय ने स्वर्ग की उस सीढ़ी का पता मुझे बताया जिसने मुझे अपनी पहचान बदलने मे सहायता की।
