The Lives and the Times
June is an average man leading an average life, with only his name being somewhat non-traditional. Little does he know, however, that such a commonplace task of moving from Bangalore to Delhi to rise up in the corporate ladder will bring him front and center of some interesting happenings, and in contact with strange people. He is being actively pursued by an organization that believes he is its leader, and is someone who will take the organization and ultimately India to its destiny. The organization is facing a nemesis, a part of the government that is attempting to maintain a status quo. And all this takes place on a stage defined as the Indian subcontinent, which is a land that is alive, quite literally that is.

The Lives and The Times II
June is an average man leading an average life, with only his name being somewhat non-traditional. Little does he know, however, that the commonplace task of moving from Bangalore to Delhi will find him lying alone under a single tree on a featureless grassland stretching from horizon to horizon. Unfortunately, the path he is forced to undertake is neither straight nor easy. The heavens are not behaving as they should, the land is not behaving as it should, the jungles are creepy, and a powerful destructive force approaches from the sky above. June must overcome all these, as well as his garrulous friend Anil’s hunger and memory loss, if he is to succeed in joining his family.

A Quiver in the Purlieu
A book flies away as soon as it’s completed, defining a pivotal point in the life-arch of the protagonist. This life-arch also features a banyan tree growing in Canada, a bar in semi-rural U.S.A., a sliver of time in an idyllic, isolated village in India, a bored billionaire playing the stock market, a comic book princess, and an interstellar spaceship journey. All this takes place in a universe that’s ever-expanding.
A Quiver in the Purlieu, by Amit Verma, is available in paperback and ebook formats from these online retailers (and many others!)
