our quest for purpose, we go through an arduous journey through a maze of
familial, societal & cultural conditioning. Courage, valor, respect,
obedience and a world of emotions that are then made a norm to follow as
purpose of a good living, often find their dead end in fear & insecurity
which are whip used to drive human subservience. Religion, cults, castes often
demand obedience by instilling a sense of fear, garbing it in benevolent sweet talk they call selfless love while driving selfish
agenda's all the time.
Norman Pinglepop is an
attempt to lay bear the sinister designs of an ambitious few who succeed in
exploiting the frailties of the collective will laid weaker through generations
of conditioning & servitude.
Jasmeet continues to be passionate about his private equity investment career, and yet finds solace and sanity in his writings.
Distinct from the writings on his professional calling, real estate, in leading mainline dailies and journals, his parallel fiction, an enquiry into the nature and evolution of the human thinking and beliefs, is often an imaginative journey through characters that are in effect each one of us jumping from one time warp & one belief mould to another.
While his first novel, CrossRoad was an enquiry into the myriad paths that we choose in our social/ societal role, Norman Pinglepopp is an enquiry into the belief systems that govern the larger drivers of living – fear & love.
Jasmeet presently lives in Delhi with his friend, philosopher & wife, Rachita and his 6 year old son Sahil.
