Adi Pocha Launches his Debut Novel “Behram’s Boat” Published by Leadstart
“Behram’s Boat” is a funny, whimsical story of one eccentric, cranky old Parsi’s struggle to build a boat that will save his people. And bring meaning to his life.
“Behram’s Boat is a fascinating narrative of one eccentric old Parsi’s struggle to find meaning in life by attempting to accomplish a task destined to doom. We at Leadstart are proud to publish this book with a unique storyline,” says Swarup Nanda, Founder, and CEO, Leadstart.
A book about Finding Purpose, “Behram’s Boat” tells the story of Behram Rustomjee, a 65-year-old eccentric Parsi, and reforming alcoholic, who feels he has one last chance at redeeming his hitherto not very noble life: By building a boat that will save his tribe, the Parsis, a people on the verge of extinction. He will build a ship of wood and sail, similar to those that carried his ancestors more than a thousand years ago when they fled from Persia. He will sail this vessel as his forefathers did, but the other way around, from India to Iran. And he will invite 50 young Parsi couples to voyage along with him… and fornicate like hell. In the hope that at the end of his epic journey many little Parsi children may be conceived and his race, his kind, his people, will be saved. Unfortunately, his grand idea, his one last shot at leaving something to mark his time on the planet, isn’t exactly well-received.
The book was highly praised at the launch by the guests for the hard work the author has put up in the work. The book is a must-read for everyone. “I read the book in one sitting! I started reading it in the evening and finished at 4 am! A fabulous book. Loved it.” says Prahlad Kakar, Ad Film Guru. “Behram’s Boat” traces the funny, whimsical, and fatally hopeless story of one man as he struggles to build his boat, to end his life on a note of significant achievement.
