    Description
    Anushtup Chatterjee, I am really sorry to have to tell you this. But you have died. Anushtup Chatterjee is thirty-two years old. He hates his mother. His job is a dead end. And his girlfriend has left him. Then one silent moonlit night, he wakes up in a deserted field in the middle of nowhere, with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. His wallet is gone. So is his cell phone. He is not alone though. There is another man there, a stranger with a gentle voice and a humble mustache, who has something rather unbelievable to say to him. That he, Anushtup Chatterjee, has already died. Mysterious and achingly poignant, Arnab Rays Yatrik is a story about hope and aspiration, love and regret, of the choices we make and those that life makes for us.

    A thought provoking and well written paperback

    Arnab Ray, also famous by his online persona greatbong, is a multiple times best blogger award winner. I have been following his blog for many years now.
    Yatrik is something totally different from his previous books. May I hebb your attention pliss was collection of essays and perfect for a light read. On the other hand, The Mine was grim and scary. So scary that I never managed yo read it again even though I found it wonderful.

    Yatrik is about looking back on life and find the moments t...

    Very Nicely written.

    I have a huge pile of books waiting to be read and thanks to the internet and movies and Candy Crush Saga and Arnab Goswami there is never enough time to read.
    Arnab Ray - Greatbong has previously written one of my favorite 'May I Hebb your Attention' and 'The Mine' both distinctly different from each other. His 3rd one Yatrik is again a leap into a new genre and is as different from his first 2 books as it can be.

    Great for a weekend read

    Having read The Mine, I had high hopes from Yatrik, and I was not disappointed. The book paces itself rather well, starting with Anushtup Chatterjee being told he's dead and the revealing incidences that led him to make choices that caused him to be where he is.

    Characters in Yatrik are not perfect; they're grey and you instantly identify with the misunderstood ones, the ones who compromise on ideals and the tough-on-luck Anushtup. Like The Mine, though, I wish certain characters were a lit...

    Yatrik: A Review

    Life is a journey they say..and we are travelers. This is the story of one such traveler, who looks back at the journey of his life.. the joys, the sorrow, the heartbreak and the milestones and also the undiscovered facets that change his outlook and viewpoint. This is the story of Anushtup Chatterjee, the average yet uncommon Bong youth and his trials and tribulations.

    Brilliantly written with aching satire and sharp surprises that make this an absolute page turner, "Yatrik" truly is Arnab...

    Yatrik-a journey you would love to undetake!

    Anushtup Chatterjee is a dead man.But Arnab Ray does not try to make a hero out of him.It is refreshing to read a book where the protagonist is not unnecessarily glorified on the pretext that he is dead.That makes Yatrik a highly inspiring work.It deftly deals with all the popular notion regarding middle class Bengali rationality(or the lack of it?) and all the glory and glamour that we Bengalis love to associate with heavy words like revolution,idealism et al.
    Yatrik is different from MIHYAP...

    Very engaging

    I have read the "The Mine" by Arnab Ray and it was a very engrossing read. The way people react to different situations, the way we upscale/downscale our ideals depending on the situations amuses me.

    Coming to Yatrik, I loved it because it is a story which could be very close to reality and it doesn't try to paint a perfect picture. Anushtup has his virtues and yet, he fails in judging people. His inferences about his mother, Poonam or his father are based on the a skewed set of experiences...

    A very nice read

    Arnab Roy's Yatrik is set on surreal premise with fast deep dives to the real life or its protagonist - Anushtup Chatterjee.

    It is a very nice read - the kind you would like to read non-stop. The narrative and the premise is very interesting - that is what keeps you enthralled till the end. The references to the social problems were nicely done and the ending is quite philosophical. A few scenarios were a little melodramatic but that is ok; as the book is an attempt to create literature and...

    Gripping and illuminating in equal measure

    Often we look back at certain events in our lives and wonder why did they happen the way they had happened and that invariably leads to assumptions. Here Arnab Ray crafted a unique narrative where the protagonist is allowed a boon, as it were, to take a look at behind-the-scene unfolding of events that shaped his life and voila, all his firmly-held assumptions were proven to be wrong. It's quite a page-turner with some great lines thrown in good measure. The one that hits close to home is "Wh...
