  1. Hi Neil,

    Good Morning. I remember you as a very good friend from our college days. Still recollect having chicken curry (or was it goat curry with rice) made by your mother at your place when Abhijit and me had visited on Christmas. Wow!!! I felt very proud to know you as a teacher at such a young age. Today I feel honored on knowing another side of one of your skill as a author. Honestly I still haven’t read any of your book but I am sure they must be exciting.

    All the best Neil


  2. Gonna get your novels and read them. I love your shares on FWBA. Read your website sometime ago but didn’t comment before. Your writing is amazing and inspiring. 🙂 Keep it up. All the best for your future adventures in writing.

  3. Hi Neil, I have started reading your books one week back and already finished all of them.. I would like to know what all books you read as part of your research. And I would like to make a short film from one of your short stories..

    1. Hello! Thanks for taking the time to read my books. I have been reading/watching a lot of Indian books/shows as part of my research. Most of my research though, is through documentaries and other videos on YouTube. For Maya’s New Husband, an old Indian show named Aghori was a big inspiration, and for the thematic elements of a woman stuck in a house, it was mostly Rosemary’s Baby by Stephen King.

      Also, thanks for the offer on filming my work. Maya’s New Husband is already being filmed; the script is ready. A team is also filming one story each from The Evil Eye and the Charm and Bound in Love. Which story would you be interested in filming?

  4. dear neil,
    i have just completed your `bound in love’ & ‘Evil Eye…….’ & started “maya’s new husband’. i have no words to describe your high caliber of writing – truly deceptively simple. further being a Bengali & an ardent fan of sri styajit ray’s style of ghost stories telling, i am compelled to say after going through your style of story telling you are nothing but simply a reincarnation of sri styajit ray. i am not flattering you, but its simply coming out from the inner most core of my heart.

    1. Thank you for taking the time out to read my works, and more importantly to comment on them here. Really means a lot. And I have tears in my eyes as I write this… happy tears… because you have compared me with someone whose work is of such high caliber that it is sacrosanct. Dr. Satyajit Ray is a genius who can never be born again. If you saw even a tiny glimpse of him in my writing, I feel I have achieved it all. I will truly carry this compliment to the grave.

  5. Dear Neil, I can’t believe Maya’s is your first book. Awesome story telling. No wonder it stayed in top of the charts for so many months. Heard that a movie is being made out of this. Is it exactly the same story or are their any twists? All the best for your new releases.
