A Jamia alumnus by the name of Nizam Ahmed (B.Tech 2004), has written and released a fictional story book titled “Faceless.”
According to the book description, the book is about a man named Kabir who realizes he has superpowers just when he tries to kill himself.
Encouraged by his new-found abilities, he decides to get even with his boss, win back his love, and in the process be an admired superhero. So starts his crazy journey — a clumsy rescue act for a girl called Riona; a dramatically rigged introduction at the Qutub Minar; mathematical manipulations at flying; use of Facebook as a weapon, and surreal encounters with a wily Russian, and a mysterious monk.
And just when he thinks he has a hang of it, he runs into the Devil — a manic ringleader of kidnappers — who is clearly more than a match for him. As he stares at the barrel of the gun that the Devil has pointed at his head, he realizes how terribly inappropriate being a superhero has been.
