Launched: A Wayside Story
WordSmith Publishers, Guwahati, Sunday hosted the launch of “A Wayside Story,” a novella by writer-author-painter Rupanjali Baruah at the 122 year old Guwahati Club premise.
In a bid to do away with the routine celebrity launching the novella was introduced amidst an august gathering through selective readings of the fictional narrative prose set in the populous Emirate of Dubai exploring love, intrigue and betrayal by protagonists of the story, Siddhartha (Syed Miraz Ahmed) and Minnie (Aldina Zinobia).
Renowned film maker Manju Bora was felicitated on the sidelines of the event as a woman achiever of Assam. Sahitya Akademi Award recipient Kula Saikia, fulltime award winning Indian writer Arup Kumar Dutta, lyricist Kirti Kamal Bhuyan, noted poet Nilim Kumar, pioneer of English amateur theater of the region, Sattyakee D'Com Bhuyan were among the who’s who present.
A Wayside Story is an impossible story of love through metaphorical handling of psychological states of the principal characters, Siddhartha and Minnie in a rather elusive manner.
