Kolkata, Apr 26 (IBNS): Written by Indranil Majumdar and published by Power Publishers, the book 'Life of a Rascal' tracks the story of a man named Arjun, an inventor born much ahead of his time and who went on to live through a period that was changing rapidly.

The subject matter itself is intriguing and borders around the unconventional. For readers who are into epic sagas, it is impossible to miss the links between the book and certain aspects of the Mahabharata.

The books takes the readers through a journey tracing the details of Arjun’s childhood and birth, his scientific experiments, their relevance with day-to-day life and finally the concept of 'karma' as the driver of one’s destiny.

Majumdar has very carefully laced the narrative with diagrams and concepts of science and physics, that might make understanding difficult in certain parts but surely addsthat extra edge where suddenly things in and around us seem all the more believable and pragmatic.

Cosmic energy, the elusive dark matter, and intermingling of science and philosophy have been put together in complete sync with the protagonist’s enthusiastic mannerisms and exploits.

The simplest events and occurrences in life that we do not even spare a passing thought upon, have deep connections to our past and reflections upon our future – something Arjun realises and explains in the book.

What makes 'Life of a Rascal' worth every penny you spent on it, is the simplicity of the concept amidst the apparent complexity of the narrative.

The journey, from Arjun’s childhood to his final moment of realisation, is more like an extended epiphany and will stay with you even after who have put down the book.

Arjun’s undeterred spirit and his faith in the importance of fulfillment of 'karma' makes him a hero worth rooting for.

The book concludes with a few unpublished poems of the author’s late brother. The poems are sure to stir something deep within.

The book is priced at Rs 399 and is available on online stores like Flipkart, Amazon, eBay, Infibeam and the Power Publishers website.
