Adding another name to the list of Alumni Authors of IIM Indore, Sumit Pramanik’s novel—‘The Girl Behind the Glass’ was released on May 10, 2017. Sumit is from the 2012-14 batch of PGP at IIM Indore. The novel is a psychological thriller stuffed with darkness and twisted characters. ‘The story is about just-married Neelabh and Shakshi who arrive at Hotel Infinity, desperate to take cover from unknown pursuers. Next morning a police Inspector appears, enquiring about a car that hurtled off a bridge nearby. The girl who was in the vehicle is missing. As the eyes of the hotel dwellers turn to each other, tragedy strikes again, now much closer. They soon learn that the devils inside them are no less dark than the devils outside’, says Sumit. Noting that this is his debut novel, Sumit says, ‘I have always been fascinated by writers with original styles, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Gillian Flynn, Justin Cronin, Stephen King and others who strive for innovative bend of thinking. I used to write during my school days, but I started developing more interest during higher studies’.
IIM Indore congratulates Sumit for his achievement and wishes him luck for his future endeavors.
