This book takes you into the publishing world through the first person account of the protagonist. However, the journey into the publishing world comes with diverse emotions from boredom, angst, and hatred to surprises and eventual fulfillment in the global village wired by the Internet. The protagonist is looking for that unique feeling of fulfillment that could possibly come from writing but discovers that the world is a huge market fed by the content to promote businesses and services.
The protagonist is overwhelmed when his teacher in class V wants to be a writer. By the time he comes to class XI, he forgets the promise made and is lost in a world driven by personal interest of each individual. A strange twist of fate lands him in a writing career, but finds that the reality is designed specifically to manipulate the soul of the entire society. Here the individuals are transformed into into stupid fanatics of an ideology devoid of ethical values as we become people without a real identity as we no longer know what we want and what goal to pursue and let dream sellers give elusive suggestions of how to nurture aspirations, annihilate worries and enthusiasms unknowingly swapping the meaning of career with momentary pleasures.
The publishing world is changing rapidly and everyone is a reader and writer alike. While content is king, writing mills have emerged with thousands of third world writers working for pennies. There are big sharks in the virtual online world of writing and there are fly by night employers. The book raises some of the basic questions such as whether there is ‘freedom’ in writing and whether there is ‘truth’. These questions are raised in course of stories and anecdotes. The protagonist is shocked and surprised that a company claiming to be an American company is actually a Pakistani company that can swallow a writer’s earning clean. There are companies that threaten their writers and there are employers that vanish overnight and the better business bureau can do nothing about it. Eventually, the protagonist discovers that despite the evil in the offline and the online world, there is something truly extraordinary that helps you connect with the universe, makes you feel fulfilled and enriched.
