The Last Nomad: Book release at Jaipur Art Summit 2019


"Not all things experienced can be understood. Not all things understood can be expressed."

A couple of years back when I started writing this story, there was no specific goal in view. The joy of writing was strong enough to keep one at the desk. But the day I finished it, I wanted to be done with publishing it and move on to the other stories lingering in my mind. I was too patient to approach traditional publishing houses and wait for years to be finally published (probably with a manuscript that didn't look like mine anymore!). Self-publishing was the way out.

Amazon Kindle Digital Publishing (KDP), Pothi.com and local book printers helped me deliver The Last Nomad to its readers. With no intention of competing with the established distributors and marketers, I witnessed the book choose its readers, one by one.

Relying on the online release and word of mouth, who had the faintest idea that a single story would take me on this journey?

I humbly invite you to the release of my novella, The Last Nomad, at the Metro Edition of Jaipur Art Summit 2019 on 3rd October. See the schedule below for details.

Thanks to Saumya Sharma for connecting me with Shri. Shailendra Bhatt, who patiently answered my questions. The individuals who have made this possible are countless to be named here. A big thanks to all my friends for being a part of this journey.

Without Amazon KDP, Pothi.com, Akshardhara Book Gallery (Pune), Pagdandi Book Cafe (Pune), and Shabd Book Gallery (Mumbai), Waari Book Cafe (Pune), and Bookworm (Bengaluru) this would not have been possible!

See you at the book release and interaction.

हे बंध रेशमाचे [अतिथी लेखक: गिरीश सुखठणकर]

१० ऑक्टोबर १९७८ ची संध्याकाळ मी कधीही विसरू शकणार नाही. माझी पत्नी सौ. शुभदा आणि मी, गंगाधर निवास, दादर च्या गॅलरी मध्ये उभे राहून पावसाची मजा पाहत होतो. हवेतला गारवा मनातील उत्कंठेला गुदगुल्या करत होता. मला शुभदा बऱ्याच दिवसापासून आवडायची पण तिला कसे विचारावे या तगमगितच १ वर्ष निघून गेले. पाऊस हा प्रेमवीरांचा आवडता ऋतू का असेल याचा प्रत्यय येत होता. एकमेकांबद्दल प्रकट न केलेल्या भावना या ऋतूत अंकुरित होत होत्या. त्या दिवशी मात्र मी धीर करून शुभदाला विचारले, 'माझ्याशी लग्न करशील का?'. तिनेही लगेच होकार दिला. आपल्या माणसाच्या फक्त समोर असण्यानेच चिंब पावसातही एक वेगळीच उब जाणवू लागते याचा अनुभव मी घेत होतो. संपूर्ण आभाळ ढगाळ असतानाहि शुभदाच्या चेहरा पाहून माझ्या मनात, छोटा गंधर्वांचं, 'चांद माझा हा हसरा' हे पद आपोआप वाजू लागलं होत. त्यावेळी तिचे वय होते १६ वर्षे आणि माझे २१ वर्षे. दोघांच्याही घरून होकार आला आणि ३० मार्च १९८० रोजी आमचा विवाह झाला.  पण लग्न म्हणजे नेमकी काय चीज असते हे समजावणारी खरी गम्मत पुढे घडणार होती. शुभमंगल सावधान!
लग्नापासून आम्ही कायम माझ्या आईवड…

7 Ways to Stay Sane on the Social Media[New Release]
SynopsisThe COVID-19 times have given a different meaning to the word ‘viral’. In these troubling and uncertain times, when the world has largely come to a standstill, we began our internet journey with a rapid pace. Everyone worked towards starting things online, be it entertainment, education, medical advice, healthcare services, or food industry. While this was being done to provide essentials, social media was revealed to us in a different form. 
Frustration towards the present situation, trolling, hatred, criticism, political word wars went rampant. Although such a display may seem obvious in these times, have we really thought about how to best use social media even before? Is this platform limited to entertainment? Or have we neglected its other dimensions? This book explores simple ways of using social media with caution and finding opportunities for success.

An excerpt from one of the stories: डिव्हायडर
"आजूबाजूने वेगाने जाणाऱ्या दुतर्फा गाड्या. मधे डिव्हायडर. त्यावर तो, त्याची पेण्टिण्ग्स आणि पुस्तकं. वाऱ्यामुळे उडणारी दाढी त्याच्या टीशर्ट शी खेळत होती. कानातल्या इअरफोन्स मधे कुमार गंधर्वांच्या आवाजात कबीर गात होते, "माया महा ठग्नी हम जानी". "
