The novel tells the story of Raghu Balakrishnan s journey from being a financial advisor to becoming an author At 25 he has a job that a lot of people would kill for and when he decides to give it up to give time to hi true passion of writing, his parents think he is committing the mistake of his life While under the spotlight of his family and relatives, he shuffles between writing motivational classes and actually working on his book But soon he realises that writing the book isn t just enough getting a publisher to its promotion, there s a long way ahead Plus what if readers do not like his book And then there s the matter of the heart First the plot I think it is a bit different in the sense that it handles the stage after the campus life that so many other authors have and are continuing to explore It talks about the struggles of a person and his choice of passion over profession I did like that aspect of this book In a country where all the parents want their children to grow up to be Doctors or Engineers or Management Gurus, we are often pushed to choose professionally fruitful line of study rather than vocational or artistic courses that our hearts truly want So yes, it was good to read about a person who chooses to give up a financial career to follow his heart an
The Paperback Badshah is the journey of Raghu Balakrishnan who leaves his job as a financial advisor to pursue his dream of becoming a writer The book starts off with Raghu at his work place being sick and tired of his job in which he has no interest Raghu comes from a slightly upper middle class family and can afford taking a break to complete his manuscript.He starts to work on his book, The Paperback Badshah which is supposed to be a love story All his friends make fum of him, that he is writing a love story when he himself has never been in love I thought Raghu was a sweet guy He really had no evil intent in mind and his thought processes were unique He could relate one random thing to another at the spur of the moment and make it into a ridiculous rhyme It was actually quite amusing The Paperback Badshah is supposed to be a comedy and there were some moments where I genuinely laughed out loud The jokes were sometimes a bit crude but over all it was a book filled with silly jokes.Those w
The Paperback BadshahThe comical journey of a 100 Rupee make the same mistakes while narrating the story as its protagonist fumbles all through as an author In the end result, the story is too long, convoluted and a well intention satirical tale on the journey of publishing a mass fiction reduces to a plodding sermon, quite literally The story flounders as and when the drama picks up but till the climax it falls apart like a pack of cards in a clunky, overblown ending which has very little justification or fun.Things are interesting right at the start when author of the book concentrates on the central protagonist ambitions seeing another successful author cracking cheap jokes and garner publicity on a book launch But as the story unfolds, there are long portions which have little significance to the narrative and just adds to the length of the book There
Complete Review HereThe Paperback Badshah The comical journey of a 100 Rupee author by author Abhay Nagarajan is a funny rendition of an aspiring Indian author to fulfill his dream of publishing a book Its about his journey and the mistakes he makes, his misadventures and the lessons learnt Its about facing roadblocks with regards to his dream of being a writer, creative challenges, publishing, marketing, promotions, feedback from readers etc.I found the writing to be sometimes creative and sometimes with PJ s As it is, there s a thin line between creativity and PJ The author has structured the book based on various stages of book writing and publishing Being a book published by Indian author, its bound to be error prone All I can say, its not as much as you would find in other books.Verdict One time read A time pass read I personally don t think there s anything out of the ordinary in this book I
