Whether it is a journey to the native village ending in the discovery of one’s roots, or the old man who awaits his end with equanimity in the hope that there is always something beyond the darkness that would soon engulf him, GS.Subbu delves deep into the lives of people who we may have met sometime, somewhere and left their imprint on us. The old woman totally immobilized, slipping into dementia; the revolutionary who believes that violence only begets more violence; the young man or the middle-aged woman’s search for an ideal relationship; a visually challenged boy; the patriarch who fights his way back from an abused childhood; the savant’s search for that secret to ultimate happiness and bliss; or the ordeals faced by a young widow, these are nine stories of ‘Hope’; nine slices of life!
About the Author
An Engineer, from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, by qualification and a Banker by profession, GS.Subbu retired from the State Bank of India in 2010 and settled down in Chennai. An avid blogger, he has been writing regularly for the last five years on his blog Sublimation. His writings range from deeply philosophical meditations to depictions of inherent humor present in our daily lives, from appreciation of art to writing poetry. His other interests include painting and music.
Darkness and Beyond - A Medley of Many Lives is GS.Subbu\'s second book. While in the first book I am just An Ordinary Man, a fictional autobiography, he dealt with the process of growing up and aging. Darkness and Beyond is all about being part of the larger process of understanding through the lives of others that it is Hope that takes us forward in order to live an authentic life.
