Second law student this year turns published novelist: Legally Lovingly Yours

ICFAI law school Dehradun final year student Abhishek Bose has penned a fictional account of a law student’s life and love on campus with his first novel Legally, Lovingly Yours (LLY), which was published last week.

LLY is the second published novel by a law student this year after Join the Bar by a 20-year old NLSIU Bangalore student Brajesh Rajak.

Centered around the lead character Abhishek Banerjee - whom the author has named after his own first name - the story deals with the lives of law students in a fictitious law school “Animus” and their day-to-day trysts including their love lives.

“The story is based in a law school, life during five years of college,” Bose told Legally India. “Basically, the book is about following your dreams. After we finish school and come out of our homes and take admission in a law school and our journey there on. It’s about our dreams and aspirations and the obstacles we face while we set out to achieve certain objectives and how far we succeed.”

He added, “For the title I wanted a mix of law and love and it took me three years to finish the novel.”

The author of novels ‘In pursuit of Infidelity’ and ‘In Pursuit of Ecstasy’ Sujata Parashar has termed Bose’s LLY as a ‘romantic fiction’ in a book review done by her.

Parashar wrote: “This is a simple story of a student. A law student. There are no major twists and turns. It depicts a student’s life as it is. The challenges, the concerns, the sorrows and the joys are all related and revolve around the College life including the experience of falling in love for the first time.

“And therein lay its appeal. The author with his simple and precise style (maybe the lawyer effect) of writing effortlessly creates a picture of the College life. One can easily associate her/himself with the characters of the book and their concerns.”

LLY is a 167-page novel priced at Rs 125, published by Mahaveer Publishers.
