 New Delhi11/7/21:: Ibnebatuti, an audiobook by author Divya Prakash Dubey, is a story of a son who tries to find a boyfriend or a husband for his single mother. Raghav, the son realizes that the task is not as simple as it seems. Narrated by Divya himself it is a story of a missing relationship that has all the unfinished things, letters, talks, meetings, feelings, thoughts, and people.

The story of Ibnebatuti in its initial stage was about a father and daughter, but later, Divya changed it to a mother and son centric story. Divya said that a man marrying twice or thrice is not much talked about in our society, but a woman marrying twice becomes the center of everyone’s discussion. So, Divya wanted to talk about it through this story.

Speaking on his narration experience for Storytel, Divya said that it is not as simple as talking which people think. Every bit of sound is captured in the mike of a recording studio, and so a narrator requires giving the correct emotion, pronunciation, and clarity while recording.

Speaking on the space of an audiobook in a writers’ life, Divya cited the benefits of audiobooks and said that it is a great source of learning; in fact, every time he is stuck in traffic, he tries to spend the time listening to something in form of an audiobook.

Further, he said that audiobook is a big opportunity and we are witnessing a behaviour change in people, which will be more visible in the coming future, that how people consume knowledge and information. Also, due to the addictive nature of mobile phones and similar devices, people spend more and more time on them which results in eye fatigue; and here audiobooks come to the rescue.

Giving an example from his personal life, he talks about his mother whose eyesight is not as strong, so Divya’s sister made her listen to the audiobook of Ibnebatuti, which she completed in just two days. So, this became Divya’s first book which his mother completed, and that too through the medium of an audiobook.
