Black Eagle Books, USA launches new short story collection by Lalit Das

Bhubaneswar:24/5/21: Black Eagles Book, USA announced the release of “Haata Muthare Jibana“, a collection of short stories by Lalit Das, IPS, Additional Director General of Police (ADG) Headquarters, in February 2021. The book has been well received by readers of varying sections, both in India and the diaspora too. Despite a career in policing and its challenges, the author had a dream of writing about his varied experiences.  For him, the act of writing turned out to be its own reward. This story collection has been written from the heart, so it has a vibrant pulse.

Director, Black Eagle Books Publication, Satya Pattanaik says,” The stories in the collection are based on Shri Das’s real-life experiences at his work, travel and day-to-day life. Readers would experience a freshness in his storytelling and adore this collection.”

Das talks about his experience as a writer,” Writing fiction is predicated on two main principles: creativity and discipline. Irrespective of whether one is a bestselling author or a first-time writer, it means a lot of hard work.” The author’s stories, in both Odia and English, have been published in various magazines and journals. His essays on the Super cyclone of 1999 and Disaster Management have won him wide acclaim.

Apart from being a no-holds-barred cop, Das is known for his penchant for fitness. The strong streak of daredevilry and adventure was within him even before he joined IPS. An alumnus of NIT, Rourkela, IIT-Madras, and IIM, Bengaluru, Das is pursuing his doctoral research in Urban Waste Management.
