The occasion was the launch of his next romantic novel "If it's Not Forever . . . it's not love".

The young author who tasted success in his very first novel "Of Course I Love You!" said he takes inspiration from real life incidents.

In his earlier books the protagonist "Dev" dumps several girls. When asked why the author jokingly said: "I cannot do it in real life, so I do it in my books."

"Dev ends up with the most gorgeous women in the books. We are similar but we don't live similar lives," Durjoy added.

The author has focused on relationships in most of his books, and when questioned why, he said because people can connect with such kind of topics.

When question was asked apart from love stories what would be the other subjects that he would like to write, he said: "I want to try fantasy books. I am a big Harry Potter and Twilight fan. I would like to give Twilight a shot."

Durjoy Datta is bestselling author of five books, Of Course I Love You! (2008), Now That You're Rich! (2009), She Broke Up, I Didn't! (2010), Ohh Yes, I Am Single! (2011) and You Were My Crush! (2011).
