A Case of Connections
During the late 1930s, an ambitious young Satyen embarks upon an apprenticeship opportunity, fuelled by his aspirations, leading him halfway around the world. He embraces the unknown and shapes his own destiny, as life throws him into challenging circumstances time and again in a foreign land!
Naming a new-born grand-nephew with a less locally familiar English name, at the end of 1974, and leaving sketches of his life hidden away in a puzzle, Satyen remains an enigma to all who had known him!
Who was this man... What steered his fate... What became of his dreams? ... Decades later, only fate can influence any rediscovery of the real Satyen, if such an occurrence could ever arise... Based on the true story of Satyen’s life, adventures, dreams and beyond, the novel captures the panoramic history of a family flung across geographies and spanning eight decades, in changing backgrounds and circumstances.
The novel is also an insight into the stories of Atul and Andy, both related to Satyen, a generation beyond, who grow up in different times and geographies. The only thread that binds them is their strong passion to re-discover Satyen’s life story and to complete an unfinished family picture! Each in their own way embark upon a journey to connect…. Their travels and unwavering will in this new voyage of discovery, decades later, undertake search trails in Brussels and London where they literally walk in the footsteps of Satyen and re-construct his life.
In a series of connected stories and characters, ‘A Case of Connections’, crosses the world from Calcutta to Leeds, London, Brussels and beyond to Ardee in Ireland, revealing how personal aspirations, conflicting ideologies, family emotions and relationships stand the test of time to finally reach the pinnacle of an unbelievable outcome!
