Excerpts from the book

She seemed to be aware of the desire that she could invoke in men and that made her more appealing. She walked up to Aryan with an air of nonchalance and her eyes fixed at him. “Does your mother still scold you, if you talk to strangers?”

“The nemesis of simplicity lay in the genesis of inarguably the most prominent profession of middleman ship. It is more popularly known as ‘dalali’. No other career option had withstood the test of time. But off course, with the political patrons not forgetting to extract their share of the booty; arising out of the paperwork and documentation in giving birth to these special classes of citizens called dalals. ”

“I want to be a stylist, a hair stylist.” Rhea was helping her mother to collect the soiled plates from the table spoke for everyone else. “Not a bad idea as a starter!”

In the crossfire that followed between the police and the pompous pageant of people’s mandate, many were left injured and one dead.
The corpse that came back home was that of Aryan’s father!

“When I look at men, you are no more than beasts in waiting, ready to pounce at any woman any time. You are conditioned to look at us as temptresses and performers who will moan and give deep-throated grunts, while you are about to finish your act. And then, when you zip up your trousers, you expect us to immerse you in adulation for your performance which never took place.”

“I accommodate non-performance for three months and then you may watch the best of motivation videos on YouTube to become the next Apple, Gates or Ambani all by yourself. This is the only profession that does not come with an entry barrier.”

From anticipating the next move of the pot-bellied nouveau riche in abandoning the musk cologne in favour of a negligee for his consort, to helping the self-proclaimed celebrity in settling down with the right size for her rotund curvature.

“Come aside and I will explain why you come across as worthless”. Rohan thrust their father’s business card at Aryan’s face. “What do you see and what do you read?” Aryan drew a blank as explained. “Our father is still a medical representative that he was 25 years back and that explains his dejection and dismay with himself. He vents his failure as a father and as a careerist in not having been successful in either of the roles. You being the eldest, he personifies his lost pride in your remaining an average and thus you are almost always at the receiving end.”

Good

This is an extraordinary story of ordinary, middle class guy. Aryan, who was average in his academics, but having an extra-ordinary zeal to discover himself. Story shows how average guy become a principle stylist at Aesthetics, master outlet of great salon at Kolkata.

Different storyline

The character development is very well written. At the start of the story, Aryan is a day dreamer, a ‘count your eggs before they hatch’ kind of person. But by the end of the story, he is a suave, confident young man who grabs opportunities head on. His relationship with the women in his life contribute a lot to this development. Priya, Rhea and Ahana all contribute towards his growth.

Interesting read

He writes smartly that this has the slow reveal kind and not so much of major twists. It forces you to sit and pay attention to study the details of characters and how his siblings reflect their counterparts.

An unputdownable book!

'Till we meet again' is the debut book by author. I was thoroughly engrossed with the page turner. I finished it in a single go. The characters are realistic and so are the events surrounding them. The socio-political backdrop has made the book to be extremely relevant to the present times that we are living. The women in the book are the actual Heroes! I am recommending this book as a must read.

Mind-blowing

This book is a fascinating and engrossing read. You know you have read a good story when you turn the last page, read the last paragraph and feel that little tug at your heartstrings. You know you have enjoyed a book thoroughly, when you have an untouched cup of coffee on the table and endless unseen messages in your phone.

``Till We Meet Again`` is THAT book. A good book. If you appreciate a story embodied in good English, good vocabulary then this is a must read. All the characters, from Aryan to his parents, his siblings, his landlady Kavya, his clients, his colleagues and THE Priya ..everyone is so relatable, so flesh and blood..

I truly appreciate the author's thoughtfulness in portraying the female characters with such finesse and adeptness. Sacrifice being their middle name. They are all strong and ambitious in their own way, yet unselfish. Even Kavya's discourteous behaviour seems justifiable. I can go on and on but that will ruin the charm .

This book is a storehouse of emotions and moments which will disengage the reader from the humdrum of life and compel him/her to introspect. There are few grammatical errors , long and complex sentences which the editor could have paid attention to . But overall a very precious story. Happy reading. 😊

A story that remains with you for a long time!

Bought this book as a recommendation from a friend. The book kept me engaged and I was asking for more after reading every page. This is the story of you & I, as the characters are so real. There were times when I felt that the characters were around me. The story has been told in and as a griping narrative and it never comes as anything that is unreal. The words at some places could have been simpler. But overall, the book 'till we meet again' is an an excellent read.

A worthy read

What I loved more in this book was the characters, more than the male protagonist, I loved the positive/neutral female characters like Rhea, Priya and Kavya. They are so independent and which makes this book more adorable, I loved how the author bought them to life with his words. There is alot to learn from them. The book gives a special message and I think you should find it on your own. At some places, the plot ran into irrelevant directions, I wished it was more well planned. I completed it in one go and I will definitely recommend it to everyone! .

Unique style of writing

A different and unique read, I must say. The flow is smooth, only one thing I feel is that the initial pages were heavy with complex words. After that, story moves forward efficiently. Author's vocabulary is definitely impressive and writing style different. The ending is open too and a second part can be easily written. Kudos to the author for his first book.

A good read.

The story equipped with the author's deep understanding of life subtly corroborates my belief. The intrinsic and detailed narration of the struggles of a family makes ‘Till We Meet Again' a good read.
'Till We Meet Again' (though I have inhibitions about the validity of the title for the story) is a promising attempt by the debutant author Shibaji Bose.

A must read for our generation.

It touched my heart as it speaks volume about the writers understanding about present situation. So simple but yet so much to unearth from the subject. Salute to the writer.

A very riveting read

Following the initial rounds, we are elated to tell you that the book as a whole comes across as a very riveting read. The characters are well drawn and they grow as the narrative moves forward. There’s never a time where one feel stagnated with a character, because they are constantly rediscovering themselves.
That one feature is quite endearing.

The canvas of the plot seems like a reflection from one’s own life, because of the myriad of characters and their habits, insecurities and experiences through their circumstances. The events are quite relatable and the probability factor ensures that the reader reads it till the very end.

The language used is the USP of the story, as the imagery and metaphors you use as a style of your writing are very well-woven.
