BHUBANESWAR: Internationally acclaimed literary platform, Kalinga Literary Festival organised its special KLF Corner to engage with the literary community at Oxford Book Corner here Friday.
Author Subhasis Mishra’s new book ‘Finding Piya’ was released recently at KLF Corner. Renowned film maker Nila Madhab Panda graced the occasion and was engaged in a conversation with the author.
It should be noted that the book depicts a rollercoaster ride of love and betrayal, of beauty and darkness, of innocence and connivance and many more extremes of human emotions.
Through the protagonist Raj’s journey, the reader gets a ringside view of the transformation of Raj from an innocent boy to a student leader and then to a victim of the campus politics. He is in constant pursuit of Piya, his love.
Raj becomes the target of the seniors’ wrath and gets brutalised in his new college. Meanwhile, Piya wraps him with her love. But he is soon thrown into a well of despair and dives into the murky world of campus politics and power struggles. However, he never stops looking for his lost love.
Subhasis Mishra is a global human resources leader who is a keen student/observer of human relationships and their impact on lives. His passion for storytelling has been inspired by closely witnessing many an iconic stories being made into movies, during his 10 years career at the Walt Disney Company, both in India and USA. ‘Finding Piya’ is his first work of fiction.
KLF Corner promises to be a thought-provoking and entertaining venture. The venue will be Oxford Bookstore, Pal Heights, Jayadev Vihar. It will be organised on the last Sunday of each month.
