Thought provoking That Erotic Silence

Launched at the Lucknow Literary Festival, the book received widespread appreciation for bringing to fore an extremely sensitive and a pertinent issue.

Buoyed by the success of his first Hindi poetry book ‘Bhavranjini’, noted hand surgeon and microsurgeon Dr Anuj turned over a new leaf by penning his first fiction novel entitled “That Erotic Silence” that deals with a very bold and a sensitive subject. “That Erotic Silence” is a thought provoking book which presents an emotional voyage of a child from age three till adolescence. It’s a journey, full of intrigue and the child’s close encounters with the sexual and sensual activities happening around him, and his experiences and self revelations, in a pursuit to decipher the truth behind the actual meaning of love.

Launched at the Lucknow Literary Festival, the book received widespread appreciation for bringing to fore an extremely sensitive and a pertinent issue.

Dr Rosa Maria DelVecchio, a literary writer residing in Brooklyn, Ohio, and an Associate of the University at CSU in her foreword says, “That Erotic Silence is an emotionally charged drama that employs ‘Freudian Psychology’ to trace a boy’s sexual development as a sort of quest to understanding the man he grows into. The protagonist is known to us only as ‘Z’. His journey into sexuality ranges from the simple ‘peephole’ through which the little boy observes couples engaged in the act to the blissfully fulfilling consummation that the young man finally experiences for himself with a married woman on the brink of divorce. In between the two extremes is a series of graphic sexual situations or encounters by Z with various boys and girls, men and women, and his imagination accompanied by some self-gratification. Some experiences he finds pleasant and others painful, some are consensual and some bear on criminal. Some the reader will find delightfully amusing- such as Z’s quest to purchase his first condom that he does not even end up using –while other encounters will make us wish we could jump into the story and call 911. Nevertheless, all of Z’s experiences from these early stages of sexual development have in some way or the other, contributed to the persona of the elderly gentleman he becomes. And that is the challenge in reading this novel-to figure out why our once youthful romantic hero is a retired success story whose favourite pastime is brooding about the good old days.”
Based out of Agra, the ‘City of Taj’, Dr. Anuj presently serves as the Director of the Microsurgery Centre of Agra. Dr Anuj was conferred the prestigious PN Wahi Gold Medal for Pathology and BC Roy Gold Medal for Medicine. Dr Anuj is all set for a grand launch of his book in the capital in November next month. The event is expected to be graced by the crème de la crème of the society.
