Six Days by Ankur Surendra Verma

It's a fabled take at solutions to every problem the world faces today, every problem. That's right, all of 'em. David had only Six Days.

How might you give hope to the one who has been the hope of all?
How might you give hope to an omniscient?
What would you ‘tell’ an omniscient?
But there is something that even an omniscient needs to be told.

Humans must find deliverance in order for David, a 12 years old blessed one, to not die on the 7th day. The 2012, U.S. general elections, future party of Professor Hawkins, future of law and order, politics, terrorism, overpopulation, and environmental chaos, the real and almost (not totally) forgotten nature of human being -- it's all in there.

“What they left their souls for is what they are left with to hold on to.”, Dr. Bennett
“You see all chessmen die to protect the king.”, The President

    I like the description of an inner battle between angels and demons. I’ve heard the anecdote about sloths before, but with monkeys. This thought-provoking tale is written more like a screenplay than a novel. I’m not sure if that was your intention, but it’s interesting.

    Hi Ankur, This is so intriguing as well as exciting. It`s got an immense depth that calls for the reader`s total discernment. You have a style of writing that I have never seen before. This is a well written book, so descriptive, and very impressive. The way you set the dialogues, makes it sound so real. You`ve shared wisdom there, yet done it in parable sort of. Congratulations for a wonderful read. I definitely would give it high stars. Ben ...

    Hi, very gripping pitch...and fascinating dialogue in the beginning! "the one who won was better fed and was given more time and attention" absolutely true. You have wonderful ideas and imagination and you express it in a very unique way. Congratulations on all your success and I think there's more for you on the way..you deserve it!
    Good luck,

    Very clever. Unique and well written, I truly enjoyed reading this-- and I'm not generally a fan of screenplays. Great job.

    I loved the last sentence of your pitch. I have read through chapter 3. You are a brave soul, and I agree with Lynne: you are a genius. I've played with the idea of adapting a story into a screenplay, but had no idea what I was doing. I found this website though: www.screenwriting.info/, but that's as far as I got. I'll look forward to reading on.

    First of all, let me say I know nothing of screenplays, so my review is probably not going to be appropriate for this type of lit I have read your first chapter, and I can already tell that SIX DAYS is a thinker. There will no doubt be several more of these moments throughout. Your first chapter as a play was genius. There were however just a couple times that I was confused as to what was happening, but that ...

    I read the first chapter, so very well written. I love the part about the sloth and how he thought he was trapped because he would not let go. Setting it as a stage play is definately unique. The cover is well suited and fabulous.
    I have given it high stars. Best of Luck

    Oh my goodness, an irresistible book added to my watchlist. Trouble is, I seem to spend more time responding to comments and messages than I do reading the amazing stories.

    I took a look at yours in response to your friend request, which I am honoured to accept. I look forward to getting to know you.

    With respect

    Hi Ankur,
    Very happy to see a genius of writing by fellow Indian(I am not trying to ask favors by saying Indian.LOL). Your book is a visual feast.period. I noticed 'He' in chapter 6 is highlighted in yellow. You are absolutely right in saying 'six days has to be written' .
    Highly starred and in my W/L.

    YARG review ok i have no idea how to review a screenplay... so i read the first 'chapter' (as uploaded on authonomy) and i enjoyed it. What an interesting way to end it... the impact of the bullet only effecting the professor's words... cool. definitely makes me want to read on. having said that, i wasn't really fond of the pitch. nothing really grabbed me except "David only had six days" - this is clever. my one suggestion, though i ...

    Sorry for the delay in backing you; I only come onto the website once a month - good luck! No need to back my book as I have made the editor's desk but if you leave a constructive comment, that would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    This is wonderful. Im not used to reading scripts on here. Is it a stage play or a screen play? Either way I would love to watch it.

    Hi. I've just read a part of your work. A bit confusing at first, disjointed, but so unique it felt okay. The language is poetic, the sentiments beautifully described through clever 'plays.' I feel this is not an airport book but aiming at the highest prize. Good luck

    Hi Ankur, I wasn't too sure on the first page, but read on and became hooked. You deal with age-old themes in an original and at times amusing manner. I can see this book achieving cult status amongst the disillusioned. I'm adding you to my booklist.

    Six Days is an interesting idea, Ankur. Such originality appeals to me as I like writing which is quirky and different. It is a complex subject matter and therefore, perhaps not always easy to follow. Yes, there are typos and some quotes which are confusing - perhaps that is because they contain grammatical mistakes or typos. It is, however, certainly a project worth pursuing and I shall rate it highly, but I feel a professional edit would be a wise ...
