Author Chirajit Paul’s novel The Fragrance of Rose was released in the august presence of eminent Bengali author Ranjan Bandopadhyay and Tollywood actress Ridhima Ghosh.


The book is about Rinita Bose, a middle class girl with good looks and great aspirations. While chasing the dreams, she comes face to face with the harsh realities of life. She picks up enmity with a powerful man and flees the city. She switches careers and at the end becomes a Bollywood actress. She becomes famous and rich. But love eludes her. Will she be able to find love?

Speaking at the event, Chirajit Paul said “I know of many women who have been sexually harassed at the place of work. Many have protested while many have kept quiet as they need the job. While many others have turned it to act as a weapon and gain favors. When this is the scenario in the society, I wanted to bring this to the notice of everyone. I am not giving any solutions but stating the problem in an entertaining way”.


Ridhima Ghosh while stating her views on work place sexual harassment said “Many compromise at work. But that should not be the case. They must protest about the event themselves. Women often think that someone will do it on their behalf. That does not happen. We need to help ourselves”.

The book is easily available at the book stores and also at the online shops.
