A Journey of Self-Discovery
‘Chasing Maya’ is about thirty-two-year old Siddhartha Kumar, who in spite of his evident material success finds himself trapped in the grip of mediocrity – the distress and despair of being no different from millions of others in this world. Bemused, he sets on a quest to rediscover the zeal that once fuelled his dreams and passion and comes across with situations and people that lead him to astounding revelations. Share the anxiety, live the excitement and experience the magical transcendence as ‘Chasing Maya’ takes you on an incredible journey that every human soul instinctively seeks to undertake but only a negligible few truly succeed to accomplish!
Debutant author Rohan Gogoi’s novel ‘Chasing Maya’ is a power-packed narration of a discontented common man’s rather eventful journey towards his life of passion and true happiness. Set against the backdrop of contemporary urban middle class Indias maddening struggle for relative materialistic success, the book in all its simplicity and lucidity subtly challenges conventions and popular perceptions by differentiating ‘running with rage’ from ‘running with passion’.
A powerful story-teller with immense potential, Rohan Gogoi, throughout this delightfully mesmerizing fable, breathes immaculate mastery over language and establishes a spectrum of perspectives ranging from the very purpose of existence to self-approbation and social recognition.
