Thaamba Stop. Do Not Enter

Author Name: Jaidev | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Horror is not something we create, nor is it something that jumps out of a closet in a dark room at an ungodly hour. Horror is not something which always advertises its presence with things falling down, windows banging shut or lights going off. It is something far more subtle, more real, more sinister like your shadow, imagine if it were to grow in length every day even if you stood at the same spot, at the same time of the day and when the lighting is similar.

The shadow that grows like a cloak on your back on a day by day basis proportionate to the debauchery and evil you engage in, until it grows to such an extent that it engulfs you, sunlight is blotted out of your life and you are condemned to live in eternal darkness, is the essence of horror. Something that enters your life as a small vice, stays on as a companion, then grows as a master in whose clutches you are until it obliterates “you”. Horror is that which will sink deep roots into your subconscious and change you from within to such an extent that you will appear alien to yourself.

Jaidev S Gurudev, the author is an Edmundian educated by Irish missionaries in Shillong, Meghalaya. He is an alumni of the Jawaharlal Nehru University of Agriculture, Jabalpur and the Central Food Technological Research Institute, Mysore. In later years he studied Business Administration and Law.

The seeds of creative writing in the author were sown by his late father, a writer-cum-journalist who was the Special Representative for “The Statesman” a highly reputed English Language daily.

Jaidev has travelled extensively across the length and breadth of India soaking in its splendor and magic. During the course of this journey through life Jaidev gave artistic expression to the impression the world made on his soul in the form of acrylic paintings on canvas board.

“Thaamba”, Jaidev’s second book is fictional and is about a zamindar and his family who for their own self aggrandizement sowed the seeds of evil at some point of time in the 18th century with horrendous consequences. Jaidev’s first book “Handi Biryani & A Wedding Suit” is based on true incidents that took place in his life.
