Book Review: Quest: Aniruddha Bose

Quest by Aniruddha Bose, the first Bengali novel translated into English by Anwesa Sengupta and Aniruddha Bose pedestal on corporate world and the pursuit for a true abode is successful in portraying the predicament of contemporary Indian culture demonstrating basic human actions and marches to the strange world of mysticism while extremely cogently illustrating human estrangement amidst a world expecting fresh developments everyday.

This squat parable orbit around the well-off and upper middle class scene of the developed social order with the writer divulge the notion of home in a chalk and cheese light, as well as pretty clearly recounts human affiliation fertile enough to carry out such a concept irrespective of their societal status and natal bond with a special perforate waiting to be set on by a reader’s mind and looks at the answer to this puzzle.

Even though every now and then overt, the writer attempts to seep out the central human response to the tremendously spirited state of affairs of today’s world with the firm metaphors of human conduct in certain conditions possibly will raise manifold queries in a reader’s mind with the response to these queries are also extremely intensely pictured in this work of fiction,

This engrossing book is not restricted to the tale of a lady and the impact of western way of life on Indian culture, even though at first readers possibly will sense that way with universality is the larger premise of this creation, which is conspicuously evident as we read through.

Tossing up and down through their profits and losses, achievements and disappointments, adore and abhorrence, aspiration and denunciation, they all go in the course of this riddle of existence with the reality they find out is time is nothing but a illustration of an assortment of interconnecting loop of affairs, which takes it in sliver, but certainly not in one piece.

We accept as true speciously in relations but we boast of a hard to pin down reflection of our way of life where just a selected few can figure out that our existence is nothing but a fraction of a bigger voidness with the eventual fact is that we breathe by ourselves in our abode in loneliness and breathe our last by ourselves in it.

The well developed and very relatable characters of this narrative are all wagers in the fixture of verve with so many things that you certainly not come across depicted in characters and panoramas were drawn coherently in this volume with the description of the key characters is incredibly dramatic and we become conscious that a few human qualities sadly do not vary and that in essence we are not that different.

The whole thing is so delightfully written here which has all the elements essential to formulate a fascinating drama where just about each character starts off black or white, other than in the conclusion, all that are left are hues of greywith the incongruity of thinking in folks, the astringent saccharine sonata of being, with the manner passions appear to go up in importance at times and their reminiscences fall off to nothing, of how belief is ruptured, and how individuals descend in and out of love.

The account is finely paced for most part of the paperback, well written book as well as very exciting on the human intensity with the wonderful stuffing which is appealing, believable and capricious, perhaps a few of the state of affairs in the reserve do not relate to the manner we glance at existence, or our behaviour but the response of the characters to the diverse struggles they countenance is really human and so familiar to us all.

The words, the composition, the effortless patent splendour of it are poignant with the style is secular and sad where one can get lost in the sequence of events with the streams can cleanse us away in its firm, engaging currents while the analogies penciled in to put in plain words every feeling in this volume, is a potent mechanism that patches up one's mind in an outgiving manner.

This emotions towards the conclusion of the volume were well written with a story as regards adore, wishes, obsession, spite, unfulfilled dreams, associations and desire and at end candour, truth and errands and is an ought to be interpret for anyone who's desiring to comprehend on human relationships as the characters give way to sentiments that are prevailing in humans.

The title in all its whole can't sum up the entire fairy-tale, not even the quintessence of it save for, it does guide you to expect some exquisiteness in the chronicle, and the writer doesn't let down you with an astute intensity that means a hunt for a touch and a desire to discover the meaning of adore, existence and our way of life.
