‘The Agony of Love’ is a metaphor of life. This literary thriller revolves around Srijan Ghose who is a poet.

Srijan Ghose – a frustrated young poet, who fails to get a suitable job – falls in love with Priyam Majumdar, who is reading for an M.A. at Delhi University. In Delhi, Srijan’s elder brother Bijan finds a corporate job for him, but he refuses the job offer as Priyam inspires him to write poetry and to do a Ph.D. at Delhi University. Suddenly, some strange things start happening to him. He is kidnapped twice and tortured to compel him to leave Delhi and Priyam. Meanwhile, his elder brother Bijan asks him to leave his flat. Srijan leaves his flat and finds a job at a garment shop. Now, he has to find out his kidnappers, and if Priyam will marry him.

‘The Agony of Love’ addresses frustration, inspiration, love, greed, violence, jealousy, betrayal, hope, and success. The dimensions of relationships are explored to the core to focus on the colours of life, in the context of the conflict of humanity and inhumanity. This story in the guise of fiction is the offshoot of first-hand experience of life


Metro Lounge/Bookgeeks (April 06, 2014) : … The crux of the story is very interesting in that it is not generally a sequence of events that you would find in a love story … Even the style of narration was a bit different from what you would normally see in a book …

Madhuri Varma (May 15, 2014) : … The second half of the book has been described amazingly. From the time Srijan is kidnapped, the plot takes a massive turn and I was hooked to the book till I completed it. Climax will bring a smile on your face …

The Sunny Side of Life (June 02, 2014) : … The writing style is good with simple vocabulary, the author has made good use of metaphors and I liked the part where historical incidents are described. And also the snippet of the book says “This story in the guise of fiction is the offshoot of firsthand experience of life” so quite an adventure … Ohh one more thing – I don’t always  comment on the cover of a book because I don’t judge them with it but I quite liked the cover of this one. It’s cute …

Storageofmind (August 24, 2014): … Apart from it novel presents us the reality of life that sometimes overpowered elder sibling wishes to use their younger sibling for their benefits. Little bit different from the typical type of love stories. It ,too has a rona dhona  section yet it does not fill the reader with boredom. Villians are there but as the mysterious movies do, jo dikhta he wo hota nahi. Good work from a debut author. Wish to read more good works from the author … (February 25, 2015): … I found the writing style simple with easy vocabulary and light read.For a neophyte it is a good one to go through.I could predict that an avid reader can complete the book forthwith. Although I found the story as-usual and look-alike other love fictions.Onset I found the story little bit insipid but later on as the second half begins it is compelling …

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
