Jamshedpur, April 25: Almost versatile, Ajoy Kumar Seth worked successfully as an aviation officer in the Indian Air Force and was posted to various stations including Bangalore (now Bengaluru), Srinagar, Delhi, Gujarat and Bikaner. He also served in the Indian peacekeeping force in Sri Lanka. His distinguished career in the defense services and in other fields earned him accolades and was decorated with the Videsh Seva Medal. Ajoy Seth had nurtured an inclination for writing which led him to write for newspapers and journals. Presently, he is employed in Indian Railways and assigned to Jamshedpur.

His book, ‘Betrayal’ won the jury prize at a reception held in Kolkata on April 24 by Asian Books Publishers. ‘Betrayal’ traces the life, responsibilities and risks that surround the story of an Air Force Flying Officer. Author Ajoy Kumar Seth said that for national security purposes, the names of planes and airbases were not mentioned in his book “Betrayal”.

Digging into his exciting background, it was discovered that Seth had done his MA in History at Annamalai University. He wanted to write and even while serving the country, he took the time to write down his experiences in loose pages or in his notebook that would help him compile his unique story one day, one day; and so there was “Betrayal” published by Asian Press.

Seth’s story unfolds at an interesting pace and there’s no time for boredom. The book is available in bookstores but also on Amazon and Flipkart. ‘Betrayal’ is a hardcover edition and priced at Rs 150.
