The Songwriter

You must aim to fulfill your dreams whatever the odds, if only to find out what you are made of.”
Growing up in the Himalayan foothills, Ratul finds solace and salvation in art and music. From touring with rock bands in small-town Maine to enthralling crowds at international music festivals, each performance represents an attempt by Ratul to connect to the people through his music. And yet he struggles to express himself to the world and receive acceptance in return. He has an epiphany, only after witnessing a human catastrophe in a neighboring Himalayan town.
The Songwriter is about the bittersweet journey of a young musician in his quest for success and stardom in the world of music- from the missed opportunities and disappointing heartbreaks to its joyful surprises.
Includes an introduction by National Award winning author Anirudha Bhattacharjee.
