My New Book 'One Day in the life of Javed Khan' is out now!

Really excited to tell you that my novel 'One Day in the life of Javed Khan' has been accepted by Ukiyoto Publishing, Canada and is now on the stands! I am thankful to my publishers for placing trust in my work.

For those ordering from Amazon.com, 
the Paperback + Kindle link is @ amazon.com/dp/9354902251

Indian buyers and those from other countries where Amazon is not available, can order from Ukiyoto website- https://www.ukiyotoindia.com/product-page/one-day-in-the-life-of-javed-khan 

This book is also available on Amazon India.

When Javed Khan’s illusion that once out of jail he would be a free man is shattered, he finds himself questioning the relationships, prejudices as well as the very notions of crime and justice in our society. Along with his younger sister, Ayesha, he sets out to make a fresh start only to realize he is in a far bigger jail and things are anything but normal. Despite loss and miseries, he persists with an unflinching hope. 

Poignant, insightful and flipping between past and present, it is not just Javed’s story but of all those like him who are wrongly labeled as terrorists. 

Based on thorough research, One Day in the Life of Javed Khan presents the truth with specific patterns through a thin veil of fiction.

Hell- Fire


There are many pressing issues nowadays like massive virus outbreak, Indo-China border tussle, unemployment, suicides, floods, economic slowdown and what not. Sadly, we are invested in scripted political dramas that TV channels play out day and night. We need to understand distractions and prioritize our issues.

Who smoked how much weed and who got into a stupid tweet war with whom are ways to snatch our attention from government’s failures in core matters. We need to see that a hellfire is raging around while we are enjoying it as if it is a holy fire.

Love, did I tell you that
I hand-picked each syllable of
The verses you tossed at me
In your fits of affection,
They still sing in my playlist
I never hush them up

Love, did I tell you that,
The hues you so loved
Are trapped in my knitting pins
On long haunting nights,
That half-done crimson sweater
Still comforts me to sleep

Love, did I tell you that,
The cotton socks we bought
In matching fluorescent colors
In flying pups, giggling kittens print
On the New Year flash sale once
Still warm my feet on coldest days

Love, did I tell you that,
You flew off but I am still caged
With my heart and soul tied
With handcuffs only I can see


We are often handcuffed by things that seem simple and innocuous. They affect us emotionally in many ways.
