Decoding Life Post 8/11 is the second book of Indranil Roy. The plot of the book based on Demonetization. The settings placed on Howrah, West Bengal. The title is alluring. The cover page gives you an understanding of time and money stuck with each other but, it could have been better.

The main character of this story is Arjun, an accountant. Nisha worked in a hospital as a nurse and ex-love interest of Arjun. Sunny, a misunderstood person by society and his own family. He fell into drug

Demonetization came as a bolt from the blue to every indian on 8/11/2016.
It was a decision taken by the government which not only brought about a complete revolution in the Indian Economy but also paralysed the life of the common man. Life gets paralysed when there are sudden changes in the routine..
This is one of the books that caught my attention, while I was browsing through the net. The blurb didnt really interest me but I thought of giving it a try. I was completely taken by surprise, after

The book took me by complete surprise!

Recently, Author Indranil approached me for his book Decoding Life post 8/11; my first impression after reading the first 2-3 chapters wasnt that great. In fact, after that, I prayed it to be a short read. BUT (Yes, Big and bold But) sometimes first impressions tend to be wrong, and in this case, it was.

The cacophonic siren of the mail train ate up the vendors words even before they could reach their destination.

Review :
Demonetization came as a bolt from the blue to every Indian on 8/11/2016. The objective was to make India corruption free, to curb the black money, to stop the funds flow to illegal activity, to make people accountable for every rupee they pocess.
It was a dynamic step by the Government. Crores of black money held in 500 and 1000 currency became just a piece of paper.

"Decoding Life Post 8/11" is a story of Arjun and his life taking twist and turns along with Demonetization.

Demonetization was a big step taken by the Prime Minister of India which shook the nation altogether. Suddenly the currency was deemed to be illegal which created a havoc in the nation. The most affected people were the middle class and the poor who had to stand in long queues to get the new currency. This historical decision was made to curb the black money but the execution was very bad. The ATMs were blocked, there was poor management, The rich were privileged since they got to change their ...more

First of all I would love to thank the author, for giving me the opportunity to review this wonderful book. Decoding life post 8|11 is set in the time of demonetization. It was the time when our honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi declared that the legal Rs 500 and 1000 rs notes are not atall legal now. The money which were very valuable an hour ago are now only piece of papers. The story revolves around Arjun, the protagonist, who struggled a lot with his friends after the ...more

Indranil Roy is a teacher by profession- He authored the much-applauded novel, The Man Behind the Teachers Desk.

The cover shares the first imprint- currency in a bubble hiding the glare. The blurb indicates that this book will talk about a highly debatable topic in recent times- The demonetization. The settings are placed on Howrah, West Bengal. Honestly, the blurb could have been better as it miscarries to give that impression. I would have loved if the blurb specified a bit more of

The book is quite depressing right from the start. The lives of the characters play with the immediate effects of demonetization. It comes on Arjuns shoulders, again and again, to deal with the money issues.

I like how the author showed the importance of friends when one doesnt have much family in times of death and suffering. I had also never read about an effeminate mans struggles and appreciate the author for writing about it.

Even though the book makes you sad, it keeps you hooked. The writing

"Decoding Life Post 8/11 by Indranil Roy is a fiction story which is mainly based on common man's problem who suffered due to demonitisation announcement by the Honorable Prime minister of India on social media without any prior information.
The novel starts with "The cacophonic siren of the mail train ate up the vendor's words even before they could reach their destination."
This book was given to me by the author itself in exchange of an honest review and am thankful to him for this great book.

The pace of the book is fast in the beginning but in the middle sometimes it tends to get a bit monotonous, but the compelling storyline hides it beautifully. The narration is also noteworthy. Nowhere had it felt like the story is going downhill. The simple language also helped the book to make a stand.

Where many politicians shy away from writing topics focused on the disastrous step taken by the current government of India. The author has crafted the story in an amazing way which will give the readers true flavor of the society. This is a bold attempt mixed with brilliant narration and classy plot.

This is one of those books where the title is shouting what the book is all about and is at the same time, perfectly appealing to get you to read it as soon as you see it. And so was the case with me when, falling for its cover and title I picked it up; though the major question still remains, was this book a super one? Yes this was a superb read

The author has presented a very unique and interesting story to the readers with elements of thrill and fun. The writing is good with a tight narration and detailed description of the demonetization that took place . Though the story was a little predictable at parts, it kept me engaged. It is a pretty easy and quick read, especially to be read between two intense books.

The author shows the impact on demonetization through the lives of the central characters Arjun, Nisha and Sunny. The love birds find out about this in a train when they are running away to marry each other. Inter cast love and value of friendship is important takeaways from this novel.
