What the Young Don’t Tell A 21st Century Journey through Innocence, Love, Lust, Soul, and Destiny

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

What does it mean to be 21 in the 21st century?

Ayaan meets Bianca when he is four-years-old. They become the best of friends until a shattering incident pulls their lives apart, and Ayaan is sent to Northbrook College, a boarding school in Ajmer. They write letters to each other throughout their adolescence. Eight years later, he meets her again in the city of dreams. By now, Bianca’s past is an enemy Ayaan cannot defeat. She is tormented by her inner demons, which to Ayaan’s surprise, begin to arouse his dark desires. Shaken and driven by a need to distance himself from her, Ayaan travels to the West for a quest for his own identity. He traverses through the enchanting Canadian Rockies, through the glamourous New York City—through the 21st-century swamp of sex, drugs, and misinformation —and eventually returns to the pristine blue waters of the Andaman Islands. His journey leads him to a new understanding of one’s purpose in life, and what it means to come of age.

What the Young Don’t Tell is a story that reveals the psyche of the new youth and bridges the communication gap with the elders. It illuminates the hidden spiritual path from the clutches of the modern-day Matrix to the bliss of Nirvana.

Mohit Jain is a 23-year-old post-millennial, possessed of all the angst typical for the generation. His educational journey takes him first to Mayo College, Ajmer, and then to the NMIMS University, Mumbai for his Bachelor’s in Business Administration. He travels to the West in the fall of 2019 where he crashes at his friends’ couch. There he encounters different people belonging to Generation Z and draws analogies between their lives. 

Mohit is a diploma-holder in philosophy from New Acropolis Organization. He’s also a PADI certified Advanced Scuba Diver. Both have influenced his life deeply and he has used his experiences in this semi-autobiographical, debut novel.
