    Description
    Devastated by floods, Bipin and his little boy Tublu move to a faraway land, where they meet the Sharmas. This marks the beginning of a long and enduring relationship between Bipin and the Sharmas, 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 humour, 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 which bears the potential to conquer all of life’s challenges. The story has its share of drama, that entertains; humour that makes one reminisce; love, friendship and emotions that define the amazing journey that is, life. Jahid Akhtar is a software developer by profession. He was born and brought up in Assam and resides in Bangalore with his wife Anjali and their little daughter, Jia. Jahid enjoys writing about some unforgettable moments, in his blog titled Flashbacks.

    Turbulent love story

    Just finished reading ‘Story of Tublu’ authored by fellow blogger Jahid Akhtar. I enjoyed reading it. It felt as if I was sitting with him for a couple of evenings as he narrated this wonderful tale of how a poor boy falls in love with a rich girl (clichéd, yet not) and the obstacles that he has to overcome to express his undying love. Despite it being a love story it is not mushy. The idiom is Indian, nothing fancy in the language which is day to day and practical.
    I also liked the fact tha...

    This book is unputdownable!

    Flipkart delivered the book in just 2 days. Started reading at 6:30 pm yesterday. Finished by 12 o' clock, with just half an hour break in between. So in 5 hours, completed reading the entire book in almost one go!
    The story evoked images of innocent childhood days of kids in small towns. Their transformation into wild teenagers, in smaller cities. Their coming of age finally in the big metros. The gripping scenes are sure to lead readers down their own memory lanes...

    Short, Sweet Read

    The book is the Story of Tublu, a sweet young boy who had to pack his belongings and move because of the floods that devastated Assam and left his father and Tublu homeless. They seek refuge under a school principal and a kind man Mr. Sharma. From then on, Tublu's life takes a whole different turn.
    The characters are all sweet and gentle, with almost no shades of grey in them, be it Maina, Tublu, the Sharmas or Bipin, Tublu's father. Tublu eventually falls in love with Maina, who in turn is ...

    This book is worth reading

    ‘Story of Tublu’ is a story about the journey of life where the author has presented all the shades of life; happiness, compassion, conflicts, tragedy and much more. I like the plot of the story; the story starts in the late eighties in Asam and ends in present day in Berline.

    The characters are well portrayed. Tublu is a soft hearted, introvert and understanding guy. From childhood he never revealed his love for Maina, whereas Maina has guessed his feelings from certain hints. I like the...

    Liked it!!

    I liked the story, the innocence of the characters, and the easy plot. It gave me an old world kind of feeling. Though there is not much twist and turn in the storyline, it still keeps the readers’ attention. It is not that eventful, and the plot is predictable, still you’d want to read on and on to know what happens to the characters. I liked Maina, Tublu, their families and all the supporting characters. The language used is simple, aimed at readers of all age groups. But the third person n...

    A Light Read

    This book is a light read. The pace is consistent and the end of every chapter wants you to continue to the next ASAP. Which is the reason why I completed it in 5 hours straight! This is my quickest review!
    It is roughly about Engineering, hostel background and most importantly it is about life! The story after education and the struggles in later life are aptly described!
    A young, peppy youthful story that has the rustiness of the north east. The environments of the novel are also special ...

    Nice Read

    Jahid Akhtar’s Story of Tublu is the story of a boy who hails from a village in Assam. As the tagline reads, the book is about “an amazing journey called life”. Jahid has declared in the ‘Acknowledgment’ section of his book, that, it is through blogging he has developed a habit of writing. And, I must admit that if you’re a regular reader of his blog Flashbacks, you’ll clearly understand how congruous the name is with the content of the blog.
    In his debut novel also, Jahid has retained his ...

    a placid read

    a ficitional coming of age book. Which sounds terribly autobiographical. Opportunities with the story to create drama essential for the book coming alive is kind of missing. However the language is fairly good Maybe I was excepting the vivid landscape of Assam and Calcutta.
