Arjun Dutt works at a startup company which straddles the worlds of finance and technology. An alumnus of Delhi College of Engineering, Management Development Institute, Gurgaon and Sardar Patel Vidyalaya, New Delhi, the writer is also a keen traveller and a sports enthusiast. The Last Seen Romantic is Arjun’s first novel, providing a stark insight into the complexities of interaction in the technology-driven modern age. The story illustrates how devices and services that theoretically make our lives easier, lead the protagonist down a path of paranoia and alienation. It also showcases how his interactions with the virtual world often impinge upon his interaction with people in the real world in undesirable ways. The novel nevertheless acknowledges the potential for romantic possibilities, despite the ever increasing pitfalls of digital interaction in the modern era – pitfalls revolving around the search for something ‘real’, when often the only avenues for interaction are fleeting, processed, curated images and interactions, making intimacy more complicated than ever before.
