About the Book :
“The Pink Smoke” is a story set in the backdrop of Bangalore, India. It traces Siddhant Roy’s journey as he tries to adapt himself into an alien world of love, lust, addictions- and unnerving degrees of friendship. He gets guided by two contrasting elements- Saahil, the perpetually high philosopher and Ashish, the sane & balanced advisor. His ambitions and desires duel it out inside his head, and his love for Nikita ‘fireball’ Sen drives him over the edge as he begins experimenting with every social norm – until his world comes crashing down. Will he survive? Will he make it through college, or end up picking up the broken pieces of his soul in the sunbathed streets of Bangalore? Read the book, to find out! The story has been placed amidst varying shades of emotions, and questions the authenticity of every feeling akin to love.

About the book :
Shomprakash Sinha Roy has ghostwritten the third installment of the immensely popular Backbenchers series, under the pseudonym Siddharth Oberoi.
Ananya has never been to Summer camp before, and that’s exactly what school seems to be offering this time. And not just that- they are offered the chance to undergo a hands-on workshop with India’s leading authority on digital photography. Natasha – eager to rediscover herself, signs up too. The boys join in on the fun, and the expedition is led by a young, vibrant new teacher. They come across two new pals- A dusky-brainy-nerdy-rebel girl from Ooty and an up-top performer from Doon.
But things never are what they appear to be- and it soon turns out that their teacher has her own hidden agenda behind the workshop. An eccentric genius photographer tries to play the kids against each other and they find themselves square in the face of danger, in a tropical rainforest, nonetheless. In the midst of that action, Yuvraj and Ananya cross a new threshold in their relationship. Will it last? Will they prove their mettle when their ability to work as a team is questioned?
Join the unbeatable, indomitable backbenchers in a trip right across the country, and gaze into the wild – through their docile, yet remarkably vivid lenses.
