Dropping out of college to follow his dream, earning the tag of a bestselling author just within the first few months of the release of his first novel ‘A thing beyond forever’, and writing the bestselling ‘Stranger Trilogy’ are all accolades bagged by Mr. Novoneel Chakraborty.
Novoneel is an Indian author and script writer who specializes in ‘Romantic Thrillers.’ To his credit he has numerous works including the novels ‘That Kiss in the Rain’, ‘How about a SIN tonight’, ‘The Stranger Trilogy’, ‘Black suits you’, and television series ‘Million Dollar Girl’, ‘Secret Diaries’, ‘Twist Waala Love’ and many more.
15th September, Friday saw Novoneel at Jagran Lakecity University Bhopal. The occasion was the launch of ‘Kaun ho tum ajnabee’, the Hindi translation of ‘Marry me stranger’ originally written by Novoneel Chakraborty. The event was organized by the ‘Reader’s and Writer’s Community’ of the University.’
‘Marry me stranger’ is the story of a 22 year old girl from Kolkata named Rivanah Banerjee. Just after completing her engineering, Rivanah lands up a job in Mumbai. Everything from her job to her love life is perfect until she starts receiving anonymous texts, often threatening, from a stranger who frequently repeats three words, “know your worth.” The journey ahead for Rivanah is the journey of discovering her true self while destroying the notions of ‘what is important.’
Novoneel also engaged the students in an interactive session while answering their questions about the story. Writing as a profession is very unconventional especially story-telling, “It is WE who put a limit to our imagination, deciding what reality is and where in lays fiction. Your fiction however can be someone’s reality, it is only that you are unaware about it. Whatever your mind can create, is possible somewhere in the world.” were the closing words by him.
Having written eight popular books at the age of 29, Novoneel Chakraborty is a youth sensation and hence the book launch proved to be an inspiring session for the students of Jagran Lakecity University where his insights on ‘success’ and ‘the power to influence’ were key topics of discussion.
