Have you heard of Strand Book Stall in Fort. Its one of the oldest bookshops.. A bit cramped, but Mr Shanbagh the owner is the sweetest person and will help you and chat with you and you’ll land up buying more than you’ll ever read (you get some good bargains too) My family’s been buying from there since over 40 years now.. :)

Satyabrata Biswas July 21, 2009 at 2:17 PM

The author Satyabrat Biswas’s first novel ‘Love Story of a Surgeon’ has been presented to the market by S.B. Publications. Biswas is a social activist and a national award winning journalist. He is actively involved in script writing for films as well as with social organizations like the Lions’ Club, Rotary Club and Tata Cancer Institute and so on. It took him two years to write his English novel ‘Love Story of a Surgeon.’

The novel is the story of love between 52-year-old S.P. Sen and 25-year-old Priyanka. Both are doctors. Dr. Sen is a successful and famous surgeon in Mumbai. He lives in a flat facing the ocean in the Breach Candy area, with his wife and three daughters. Dr. Sen loves alcohol. Except for a few trusted doctor colleagues, nobody knows that he operates only after having drinks. Due to his drinking habit, his wife and three daughters leave him and go away. The writer has painted his loneliness and the course of his life after this stage, in vivid colours. It is impossible for a man to live in solitude – he requires a companion who loves him truly. The story deals with a surgeon and his search for peace, happiness and a soul-mate who truly loves him. How this search ends is a suspense that will be known only when the readers complete reading the book.

Love can strike anyone – there are no age limitations for this. Though the concept of love between an aged hero and a 25-year-old heroine is not new, but the author has tried to infuse colour into the story by his writing. He has filled it with melodrama, sex, Hindu-Muslim relations, regionalism and other ‘masala’ ingredients. It is noteworthy that though it is his first novel, the narration is smooth and free-flowing. Without using bombastic English language, the writer has used simple sentences. Therefore, even those who have minimal knowledge of English can understand the novel. The message we receive from the novel is that life is nothing else but an endless journey in the dark. Nobody can predict what will happen next.
