Destiny has grand plans for a young underdog, Roshan, but he does not know it. Not yet

As a fashion store assistant moonlighting as a singer-songwriter, his passion is dimming.

A fall-out with a narcissistic producer, a casting couch incident, a shared history with a movie star, a meeting with the CEO of a music label, and a chance encounter with a talented and beautiful artist—all these incidents shape Roshan’s music through lyrics, through hope, and sometimes, tears.

As he tackles his first job, second relationship, financial independence, and fear of failure, his future is uncertain.

Will Roshan ever get a chance to live his elusive dreams? Or will he be forced to drop his guitar?

Inspiring and romantic, ‘Bittersweet’ is an emotionally complex novel about a young man who finds his true calling in a world that otherwise seeks a compromise. It is a haunting insight on the lives of the powerful and the powerless, on identity and forgiveness, and on free will and destiny.
