When Amol Dixit left Chicago for India eighteen months ago, he had not imagined that he would find himself sleeping on the streets of Mumbai one day. He had planned to spend a year with his family in Pune and return to North America. When the year came to an end, he chose to stay back. And that’s when things really started going downhill. Very soon, he would be broke, unemployed and married. But Amol knew that his life was soon going to change for the better. Gyaani Baba had told him so.
Now, Returned to India is a Back-to-Rags story of a NRI who left for India and never went back.
Author and Narrator Amar Vyas gives an overview of this audio (podcast). Each week, he will narrate one chapter from his debut novel NRI: Now, Returned to India. NRI features the protagonist Amol Dixit, and this book is the first in a four part series based on the life of this fictional character.

Feedback from a reader on NRI:Now, Returned to India- a sweet message that made my day: ”
Just read your book ‘NRI’ in one sitting- 2-3 hours on my Kindle.
As an 18 year old who shuttles between Mumbai and Pune every week, your book gave me a sense of familiarity and brought about some excitement.
Hoping to read your other works through the summer. Good job!”
