Okay, so I JUST HEARD this !!! And of course, as all my friends and readers on my other blog already know, am a crazy book lover, so this one is definitely a very exciting news for me!!!!
So what's the news?
Anupam Roy has started working on a novel.....whoa whoa whoa! (And just to let you know, I'm going to flex all my charms and influence and the like to get my hands on the FIRST signed copy! You may happily go for the second, third and so on.....!!!)
For those of you who can't read the Bengali script, here's what it says, in an English translation as well as I could: (the exact Bengali is also shared at the bottom of the post in the english script)
'Anupam Roy is working on a new novel at home. ''I'm trying to write it by breaking away from the typical Bengali language and the typical novel style. Just started. Let's see how it goes.''
Though the name isn't decided yet, Anupam regrets he isn't able to write it in a serialised manner (or something that can be adapted to a serial?) sorry I couldn't get that translation correct.
'' I'm writing as and when I'm getting the inspiration, else it gets stuck. Right now it's in that 'stuck' phase. Let's see when it gets over'' says Anupam.
Wow.....and now, the bengali in english script....
