About the Author :

Anupam Dasgupta has done his Bachelors in  Engineering from Jadavpur University and MBA from IIM Indore. He has worked more than a decade across roles in Business Development, Consulting, and Strategic Planning. He currently works and lives in Bangalore, India.

Anupam Dasgupta writes contemporary fictions largely based on his personal experiences and observations. He firmly believes in the adage " truth is stranger than fiction " and his opinion is the world is full of interesting events and colorful characters.

"From Yesterday " is his second novel . His debut novel "Salsa " was in May 2013 and was subsequently republished as "Salsa World is a small place " in February 2014. His interviews and articles related to the book were featured in leading Indian dailies like " The Times of India ", " The Hindu " , The New Indian Express " and " Deccan Chronicle ".

Besides his passion for writing, Anupam has an ear for soulful Music and loves Singing. He is also an avid follower of Latin Dance forms and a keen social dancer .

Moving to the book - " From Yesterday " is a story revolving around Adi and Anita . Adi is a management professional from Kolkata who moves to Chennai for work. Anita is a makeup artist blessed with name fame and fortune, yet cursed with lonely and loveless existence. Adi and Anita meet in Chennai and instantly fall for each other. However, Anita's checkered past comes back to haunt her. Many things happen in between. Their lives change and they separate.  Adi moves to Chicago for work and happens to meet Christina.  Christina gets attracted towards Adi . However, Adi still waiting  for Anita .The book is partly written in flashback mode . In between Adi also meets with a Tarot Card reader , Ravena , in a club while dancing . The story is quite interesting . The book compels you to read it further .To know what happens next . Read the book today and discover if Adi And Anita meet again . Is Anita Will come back ? . All these questions will be answered only when you read the book . 

Though I think that the character of Anita is negative.

The best part of the book is the suspense till the end. You can only get to know about it when you read the book till the end. I like the way Anupam Dasgupta wrote this book. 

The plot is really interesting. Though there are many elements they all connect beautifully at the end . The characters are also drawn well. I liked the characters of Christina and Ravina and also Anita's assistant Hamid. The book in its span of 223 pages did not appear dull at any point. The best part of the book though was its climax,- it was very well written and manages to keep the readers engrossed till the end.

Most of the people who relocated to metro cities for a job will relate to this story,  the loneliness, the lack of true friends who can be trusted, and doubts and complexes that often destroy relationships.
