Anirban Das is making his book debut with Just Kidding…Yours, Destiny. The implied essence of the story is about making choices, their consequences and the role of destiny.
The plot is a simple story, revolving around the complicated life of Kunal Roy. Ambitious Kunal is living the great Indian dream, having purchased a house in Mumbai, driving an expensive car and striving to earn pots of money. Having slogged for donkey’s years in the same company, Kunal believes that he is a star employee in his company. He is determined to reach the top with a simple mantra - hard work and dedication.
Kunal’s seemingly planned life and ambitions turn awry with the sudden acquisition of his company and an abrasive new boss who puts Kunal to the sword. Kunal’s life is further turned upside down with the entry of a company rookie, Shristi, compelling him to change his world view and his life’s priorities. Is Shristi for real or is she an illusion? And who is the real Kunal? Undergoing upheavals in both professional and personal life, Kunal looks to jettison his ambitions by embarking on a journey of self discovery, in an attempt to regain his lost identity and a semblance of control.
This book aspires to strike a chord with the readers, engage and entertain them. It has been written from the heart, in a manner, which is characteristic of the author’s writing style. The story has been set in a typical Indian urban backdrop but the emotions enunciated, would transcend country barriers.
