Book publication: 'r2i dreams'

I am proud and excited to announce the release of my book titled 'r2i dreams'.

It is a part autobiographical, part philosophical, sometimes funny and sometimes introspective book about the story of three immigrants struggling with their r2i (return to India) dream. r2i is a topic of constant discussion and debate among immigrant Indians and the book explores it through the lens of three parallel life stories. Realizing this book has been a rewarding journey with my co-conspirators Ramya and Subha. Here's hoping that these tales resonate with you too!

This flight of fancy was unexpected and uncharted and yet it has taken off for the horizon. What began as an organic project with the three of us bouncing ideas turned into a full fledged book during the course of a year. It has been tough work balancing with work and kids and other commitments and I am happy I could see it through. This topic in particular is a very common course of discussion among Indian immigrants and the book captures the essence of it.

Congratulations, Parth!! This was long overdue, and I am glad its finally here. This calls for a blog post on what it felt to hold your first published book in your hands, so we can live vicariously through that feeling.

Bought my copy. Arrives Monday, can't wait!!

@Niranjan, sorry for the delay in response. I am very appreciative of yours binary tears of joy :) After years of writing short fiction and poetry, it was a quirk of fate that I ended up writing an autobiographical treatise on r2i :) You can't predict such things. You must have received your book today. I'd be interested in hearing what you thought of it.
