Blurb :

This is a story that falls through the crevices of pitiless anonymity, yet miraculously waits to be told.
Shijukutty, a Malayali fisherman, leaves his tiny hamlet of abject poverty in the coastal village of Vizhinjam on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram, the capital city of Kerala, that picturesque vignette of searing beauty on the southwestern coast of India. Shiju, like millions of other Malayalis, seeks his destiny in Dubai, that gleaming global hub of fortune on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf. What unfolds is a stirring story of distilled hardship, exploitation, identity, and friendship, and the heartbreaking choices Shiju is often forced to make. So what he sees is not what he experiences when he lands in a world of glimmering towers, fast-paced life, and unabashed opulence. For what he was not prepared for was the dark underbelly of Dubai beyond the shimmering mirage.
Shiju’s life is no more the same. But he holds his ground, drawing on ancient instincts of his seafaring ancestry. As things settle down around him, he is inexorably pulled into the canyon of recession… Will Shiju be able to hold on to his dreams? Will he able to pull out himself from the whirlpool? Will he survive against all odds? Will he redeem himself? Nikhil Ramteke unfolds an extraordinary saga about Indian expatriates, their struggles, their alienation, and their dreams. The 365 Days is more than a story of a year in Shijukutty’s life.

Review :

I still can’t believe that This Novel was written by a First Timer. Nikhil Ramteke did a marvellous job writing this Novel, He gave it his 100% , You will concur with me while reading his Novel. The Plot and various sub-plots are totally Unique in itself. The Story is written in such a way that engages the reader throughout the Novel and Being a reader, I didn’t find a single moment to lose the interest in the Novel, it was that much engaging. This Novel is written about how the Dreams and Struggles go hand in hand. The Main Character of the Novel is Shiju who is a Strong Character and the Novel is written with the Idea that “The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”
The Story at times was emotional and made such an impact on me.
