Abhaidev - book author
Abhaidev is the pen name of Mayank Chandna, an MDI Gurgaon alumnus. After working for a while in an investment bank, he took the plunge and quit that boring job of his to venture into the exciting world of writing, something he always wanted to do.
His penchant for continental philosophy and craze for progressive house music has nettled his simple parents. He is an avid reader and devours classics and science books.
He loves challenging his limits and believes that there is nothing nobler in this world than utilizing the gift of curiosity to its full potential. He seeks transcendence in the practice of art and hopes to pen down stories that are not run-of-the-mill.
Abhaidev is the author of books: That Thing About You, Maybe This or Maybe That: 37 Things We Didn't Learn in B-Schools
What if, to the heavens, our lives are nothing but rows of dominos ready to be put into action?
What if we all are mere pieces of pawns carefully played upon by a cosmic chessmaster?
'That Thing About You' is an uncommon story of a common man rejected in love.
This is a story of a man walking on the path of self-discovery.
Subodh, a regular IT employee, is perceived as an immature man by everyone, but he isn't bothered until his love interest rejects him citing the same.
Although dejected and crestfallen, he soon befriends an unusual, mysterious woman who knows everything about him and seems to have all the answers.
Soon, his life goes through a lot of unexpected turns—from doubting his sanity and visiting a psychologist to a failed arranged marriage attempt made by his parents.
Everything in his life seems to be in fast-forward mode. One thing that does not change, however, is this unusual “friend” of his who refuses to reveal her identity and chooses to appear at her whim.
Who is this mysterious woman? Why is she prying into his life? Where will this strange friendship lead him? Is some impending danger awaiting Subodh or is it something else altogether?
Why every other MBA is turning into a candid photographer or a best-selling author?
Apart from answering such quirky questions, Abhaidev in his debut book-“Maybe this or maybe that – 37 things we didn’t learn in B-Schools” has tried articulating what many MBA graduates have thought of but couldn’t. Worth read for those who have “been there, done that” and also for those who aspire to join the MBA brethren in the near future.
