A Fisherman’s Dream (The Aryan Series: Book 1)

Aryan is a young man living in the coastal village of Kornur, India. He dreams of becoming an artist one day, but his dream comes to an abrupt end when his father passes away when he is only sixteen, and since then he has been condemned to live the mundane life of a fisherman. But fate gives him a chance to achieve his dream and he moves to Mumbai in the hope of becoming a successful artist. The story then follows Aryan’s life in Mumbai as a struggling artist, the new things he learns and experiences, and his quest for self-discovery. During his struggle, he strives to master a new style of painting in order to stand out and succeed. He perfects his broken Hindi and explores human nature by observing himself and the people around him. He ponders on the nature of power, the desperate need for lies, the craze and importance of cricket in India, and the cultural differences between a small village and a big city, and he explores the relationship between God and human charity. This is a coming-of-age story about perseverance and survival.
