About The Book
Sameer Sathe, a.k.a Sam, is an accident-prone young man. He is good at running his bookshop, but he is hopeless at growing up. He has fallen in and out of love with seven women in his life so far. Apart from his love life, the other problem that plagues Sam is his once-a-year accidents. After his twenty-fifth accident, a mystic tells him that he is cursed and that the next mishap will kill him. There is only one way out. One of the women Sameer fell in love with can save him. A desperate Sameer tries to reconnect with all the seven women. He realizes that he had affected their lives profoundly, and most often in a terrible way. He did fall in love with them even if for a short while, but most of them were not really in love with him.
Sam spends time in their company, understanding their lives and also himself better. He learns many useful lessons about living life to the fullest and also bearing responsibilities. Follow Sam's journey and find out if his life is worth saving.
Rohit Gore grew up in a number of towns in India. At various times in his childhood, he wanted to be a theatre actor and a stand-up. He believes the countless hours spent in rehearsing and performing the acts was time well spent (others disagreed).
After his engineering degree, he was in Mumbai, where he fulfilled one of his dreams - being a salesman. An MBA from S P Jain Institute followed and since then he is in the IT industry.
He loves sports, specifically the discussing and watching part of it, since the playing days are long gone. He has travelled a lot – a consequence of living in Mumbai and being a travelling salesman. His greatest passion is reading and it inspired him to write. He is a frequent contributor to many online writing forums and wishes there were more writing groups.
He currently lives in Pune, a wonderfully vibrant city. He is married and it was his wife who told him to pursue his writing. When he is not working or writing or reading, he is found spending time with his family, reading about rock bands or pursuing his other passion – rock music. One of the things he would like to get better at is photography.
