'The Indian Story of an Author': A symbolic protest

'The Indian Story of an Author': A symbolic protest

New Delhi, July 8 (UNI) Canada-based Indian author Gaurav Sharma's new book is heavily laced with sarcasm.

'The Indian Story of an Author', published by Think Tank Books, is a result of Sharma’s frustration at getting rejected by several publishers while pitching his novel, 'God of the Sullied'.

The 100-page book has only one chapter that in three lines summarises the irony of getting published in India.

While this book could be seen as some non-serious work by a segment of readers, others deem it as a strong message to the writing community.

In an interview with UNI, the 26-year-old author said, 'I left the book intentionally blank in order to express disagreement with the traditional publishing industry as majority of them publish only romance books despite getting many good manuscripts in different genre.'

Through the book, Sharma warns aspiring writers about the hardships they would face while pitching their works to mainstream publishers in India.

Sharma said he was shocked after he got emails from some reputed publishing houses rejecting his manuscript initially and asking for huge amounts of money to publish it. The theme of Sharma’s book is clearly depicted in on its cover page. 'The Indian Story of an Author' is a mix of wit and serious sarcasm.

He is now working on a sequel, 'God of the Sullied,' which has not yet found a home.
