About Law of Jiluk

There are two types of people in the world. One, the prodigy of the world, the 'born genius' who are a source of inspiration to the world. The second ones are those who are contrary to the first ones. They just come to world, stay and one fine day leave. Then something happened to God... He must have spotted a Goddess. He decided to create the third types. Who are these third types? Find out in Law of Jiluk

Law of Jiluk is a journey into the teen-hood when life is a fantasy wherein the characters, roles, relationships, experiences, feelings, bonding, friendship and love are real and true.

Jilukism

Nope its not Judaism. You might have the same reactions as that of our leaders when they happen to see their election manifesto after coming to power. The one and only question which would arise in your mind with the immediate effect created by the title is, 'What is Jiluk?'You might also feel that, all the bizarre 'intro titles' of the South Indian heroes are far better than this one.

Keep Guessing

Jiluk, is this a word from any of the Indian languages? Is this from a foreign language? Is this a scientific term? Is this of any biological root? Is this an acronym? Is this any movie title? Is this a pet name? Is this a puzzle or is this any Santh Baba's name? Otherwise is this some kind of Newton's camouflaged law, theory, postulate, etc. or what?.

Fact

Jiluk (pronounced as /dʒiluk/ according to Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary), sounds crazy, doesn't it? If you ask Google, even the search engine giant will not be able to give the actual meaning of Jiluk. And guess what, Wikipedia also has no clue whatsoever about this word Jiluk!

Features

Right here I've got something to tell!

Once upon a time there lived a dreamer who used to sit and dream in the last bench of his godforsaken college. His teachers had given up on him because despite being an engineer he had this strange dream of becoming a writer, that too a writer in a foreign language. In a country like India one can always become actors but not authors. He lost his friends (but not his best buddy Ashok, and mentor Nandini chiti). His parents were not all that ok with his idea but soon they realised that one can't do anything about this spoiled child, the world failed to understand him; people hated him for being true to himself. But he decided to hang on to his dreams because his dreams were the only things that stayed with him. Now the real problem was, he was not from any literary background or from a family which brought him up speaking English in the house. In fact he didn't know the ABC of writing and added to his plight he had never read a book (except Chetan Bagat's Five Point Someone) to know how to go about the entire process of authoring. Still he believed in himself and decided not to give up on his dreams. It took three years to complete his first draft. Within this period of time he developed some weird habits like talking to himself thousands of times, staring himself in the mirror another thousand times, snapping the fingers whole day, scratching his beard more than necessary, knocking the wall of his room several times with his head, all for one reason, to get rid of the fear that held him because he seriously doubted whether he would make it or not. It didn't stop there he was constantly haunted by nightmares. From being crazy he went craziest. One fine day he made the impossible possible by penning down his story, but the next bolt came in the form of publication. This time he had to wait for an unknown period of time. He had tried his hand in every aspect of getting his work published but nothing came by his way. His work had been turned down by all the leading publishers. He was not sure whether they had read the manuscript at least for the sake of reading. In the process he started losing energy, time, money but not his faith. After a long haul of another year his dreams got wings (thanks to Leadstart). Now the very thought of finding himself in the search results pages of Google for a worthwhile reason makes him feel so thrilled. He dreams of how best his book could possibly look on a bookshelf. Meanwhile the idea of creating a facebook fan page has a different story to tell altogether. Never, had the days been so boring or nights so long. It seems the hour and minute hands have made a pact not to move, no wonder these things are quite inevitable in his life after all he is ultimately going to realize his dreams. Every day he wakes up with a feel of his book like a mother who experiences kicks from the baby inside. He feels emotional, excited, strong, and happy nevertheless with this comes the fear and responsibility. But there is something which has been driving the human race ever since it came into existence, he is no exception and that is nothing but hope...

'Jiluk has no meaning without the burning desire to fight for it. With this unshakable belief, sheer confidence and not to forget, a very special thing called hope, I bring you the Law of Jiluk to make a strong statement to the world that everything is fair in Love, War and Jiluk...'

The Author

The author neither has a big brand of IIM or IIT backing him nor is he a well-known personality with credible achievements in film, theatre, music, sports, culture, and bureaucracy or in corporate India. He never has visited a foreign land nor does he have an overseas work experience of any kind. His blog has never been ranked among the top 100 blogs in the country owing to the simple fact that he doesn't blog. And one important thing, his earlier novels were not blockbuster hits or runaway bestsellers as this one being only his debut novel. His work has never been published in the past by any leading publisher (including the imprints) or has been represented by any agent before. He doesn't work with a national newspaper or a leading national magazine or lifestyle magazine as a full time employee or as a regular features contributor one or the other. He neither has won any literary award nor holds some kind of PhD in creative writing either. He is just a small town boy with a very big dream of becoming a storyteller someday.

'HER SMILE is the chuckling of a crawling buttercup, the silence of twilight, the voice of the full moon tide, the beauty of a shell, the blissful breeze on the lonely hill top, the ethnicity of the Ganges, the scenery of the Indian monsoon, and above all a helping hand to the downtrodden.'

The Number Game!

The making of Law of Jiluk spans for 4 years which is equal to my doomed engineering life (coincidently in the movie Ben-Hur, Judah Benhur regaings his freedom and comes back for revenge after 4 years!). 10 edited versions have been employed before the final version was created. More than 50000 words have been put in use to narrate the story. The final draft surfaced only after making its hard way through the unknown 'no' of drafting. There are totally 19 chapters including Prologue and Epilogue. The word 'Jiluk' approximately appears 40 times in the story. The best of all figures 'Law of Jiluk' was rejected 18 times before it finally saw the day light.

'Even though we are individuals with day and night differences, we always fell strong when we are together. May be this is what is called friendship or being friends.'

When it comes to the question of why a person should buy this book, the answer shall be one or the other from the following:

One, a reader can easily get into the shoes of the protagonist of the novel and associate himself with the story, as the storyline deals with the events and situation one might have definitely come across in his or her life. Two, as the role of narrator and the protagonist is played by the same character it would be a unique reading experience, straight from the mind of the writer. Further the writing style has been followed with simple and precise narrative style. Particularly the usage of the words has been taken utmost care. And above all, unlike the new age books which use all kind of bunkum words to attract the readers, the use of F-word or A-word in the entire book is cautiously cut down to insignificant cases, thus making it a feel good experience all together, or a slightly different experience, at least for a change.

'AFTER THE survival of the fittest, there is another premise which brings a huge difference to our Indian society. As per this postulate relating to the competition for xx chromosome and known as the 'tug of xy' theory: We compete for a place in our mother's womb as a sperm. After all the hard work once we come to this planet, our next level of competition immediately begins as soon as a girl is born. If she is good looking the strife becomes really tough. One has to really strive hard to stay in this bout.'
