“Never ever have an Encounter with Unknown.” - says Rajiv Bakshi, Author of “Journey from Guwahati to Machhiwara”
‘Journey from Guwahati to Machhiwara’ by Rajiv Bakshi from Punjab - India, who was a banker before the writing bug hit him with full force. Just after retirement he decided to pen down his memoirs of 35 years, which was a unique journey from Guwahati to Machhiwara. The story is based on the events around his banking life. He says that the biggest challenge in writing this collection of memoirs was how to pen down his memories, spanning decades. It took him more than one year to edit his book. All the 20 stories were edited more than 5 or 6 times to make them readable. The grammatical mistakes & spelling errors consumed a lot of time to rectify. But to see his book in print was a dream, not only his but also of his family, so he followed his passion with diligence and perseverance. And here is the result. Hope you like it too, like many others who have…
