Dilip Chakrabarti
Walking Alone
Some of the readers may identify themselves in similar situations, but the characters and events are related to my personal experience only, although some imagination, some fiction and some daily life experience have been blended together, if any of these matches to someone else?s, that would purely be a coincident and this matching is not intentional at all. If the readers enjoy this book, it would be the greatest reward for my hard work which I have done to write this book. I shall accept any kind of opinion, good or bad with equal importance and pleasure.

Plot: This unusual work features an assortment of vignettes, musings, and creative essays. A sincere and inspiring tribute to family, hard work, and optimism.

Prose: While there is a lot to admire in this work, the syntax and structure can be cumbersome, resulting in some confusion on the part of the reader.

Originality: Chakrabarti's Walking Alone is told through an intriguing historical and cultural lens. The essays and stories featured throughout are loosely connected. Their collective impact is somewhat indistinct and hazy, in part due to the sometimes awkward structure of the storytelling and prose.

Character/Execution: The author provides intriguing, slice-of-life storytelling. Ultimately, the reader may gain a more vivid portrait of the author himself than of other characters depicted in the tales.
