[ClickPress, Tue Sep 05 2017] Payam Sudhakaran is a journalist turned author who has worked with some of the best newspapers in India including The New Indian Express, Vijaya Times, The Times of India, Deccan Chronicle, News9 TV, The Hans India.
The northeast is the least explored part of India which often remains out of sight out of mind. Sudhakaran seeks to explore the Naga society and the impact of Naxalists on the society, in his book, The Misfit. The book moves at a quick pace, exploring less known areas, the areas under the Naxalite influence, through the protagonist Jagdeesh, who finds himself a misfit and hence is forced to move repeatedly to find his moorings.
Jagadeesh, a Kerala youth, runs away from home after discovering a ghastly reality about his father and his lover, Meenu. In an attempt to leave his sordid past behind, Jagadeesh travels to the farthest corner of India, the Northeast. Dramatic events take him to Nagaland, a state boiling in separatist crisis. As he attempts to build a life in the land of the Nagas, working as a teacher and falling in love with a Naga beauty, fate strikes again, this time in the form of betrayal from a close friend.
The Misfit is a thrilling saga of love, loss, friendship, deceit, and hope. Payam Sudhakaran manages to capture the pulse of Indian villages and cities, from the South to the North East, with relative ease, always keeping the reader at the edge of his seat.
Payam Sudhakaran was born in the tiny State of Kerala. Payam is a journalist by profession. He has worked with several Indian and international publications.
Though his first novel was published as a series in a Malayalam journal way back in 1991, it faded from public memory with the passage of time. There are several short stories, poems and articles to his credit. He is a passionate writer and now prefers to spend most of his time in seclusion.
