Story of Tublu


Story of Tublu which the writer Jahid Akhtar calls ‘An Amazing journey called Life’ is one such story. The writer has certainly a story to tell- that of Tanmay Alias Tublu and his father Bipin Bora and many others- and he knows how to tell it. Hemmingway had once observed that the best way to tell a story is to tell as straight as possible and this is what Jahid Akhtar has done in the novel.

Tublu and his father have a dream run in their lives after meeting Mr. Sharma when their home was destroyed by the surging Brahamputra, things keep on happening around them. Mr Sharma, having helped Bipin and his son Tublu, develops cancer, arranges his daughter Miana’s marriage hurriedly with Suraj who commits suicide within days of the marriage. But there are many more twists and turns in the story before Tublu who had a secret crush on Maina since the childhood, is united with Maina in marriage thereby bringing the novel to a close.

About the Book:
“Devastated by the floods, Bipin and his little boy Tublu move to a faraway land, where they meet the Sharma’s. This marks the beginning of a long and enduring relationship between Bipin and the Sharma’s, and the growing friendship of their children Tublu and Maina. The book captures the journey of this friendship through childhood to adolescence and into adulthood. From some interesting school and college humor, the story progresses on and develops into a mature narrative. As years pass, Tublu’s plain and silent crush on Maina develops into deep love and longing for Maina which bears the potential to conquer all of life’s challenges. The story has its share of drama, that entertains; humor, that makes one reminisce; love, friendship and emotions that defines the amazing journey that is, life”
