He holds a vast experience and knowledge about pre-sales, sales, program management and entrepreneurship. He is fondly called by his colleagues as Ranga, Rangs, Rongo Da and so on. By nature he is a lazy dreamer and loves to explore new places. His favorite destination has been the mighty Himalayas. He is still in love with his colleges, IIT Kharagpur and IIM Lucknow, the two most premium institutes of India. In pass time he loves sharing knowledge, cracking PJs, watching movies and cricket and of course reading books. He holds a strong regard for Osamu Tezuka’s graphic novels and dreams of becoming a scriptwriter someday. He wants to bring in a change to the society and make a difference through this book. He wants to touch the lives of deprived children. He feels that disabled painters are born with special talent and wants to make a difference for them too.
The book is about two protagonists Ram and Subbu. It must be cosmic intervention that binds Ram and Subbu together! A rare pair that goes together to school, IIT, IIM and now jobs at the same organization. After an intense introspection at the Himalayas, Ram vows to write a book to justify his existence. Subbu volunteers to be a critic. Thus starts their book writing journey: a roller-coaster ride through relationships, campus life, movies, cricket, politics, ghosts, consulting, aliens and philosophy before they almost give up. This is a rare book that combines multiple genres and is a "connection"
of short stories. Rajnikanth, Big B, Sourav Ganguly, NaMo, RaGa, Vijay, Surya, Kajal, Nagma, campus parties, Powerpoint slides, Super Cop, murder mystery and big data come together to entertain in a manner never experienced before. And behind all this, the cause is noble. Paintings at the start of each chapter are made by disadvantaged painters. A great effort by the author who has pledged to donate all the profits from this book for the disabled painters.
