The book launch of Amit Chaudhuri’s Friend of my Youth took place at Oxford Bookstore in the presence of the author, Swapan Chakravorty, Professor in Humanities, Presidency University and Dr Jean Frederic Chevallirt, Philosopher, Theatre Director and Co-Founder Trimukhi Platform.


The story of the book is about a writer who comes to Bombay for a book related visit. He engages in the search of the city where he grew up. The city has changed much since the terrorist attacks in 2008. The book is an unexpected exploration and reminiscence woven around the city.


“With this book, I want to highlight the enchantments and power of the memory of a human being. In today’s world, where you are surrounded by noise on all sides, this book will be a welcome relief to contemplate on things which are essential in your life” said the author.

The book launch was followed by a session with the three dignitaries.
