WHAT TO READ: Your Destination Has Arrived by Barry Cheema

PUBLISHER: Notion Press

PAGES: 376

GENRE: Philosophical Fiction


Right from the beginning, I was an artist to the core. I read a lot of Urdu and Hindi poetry. Eventually, I started writing and composing gazals. After that, I released two albums of Punjabi Pop Music, in which almost all the songs were written and composed by me. I also started directing music. My second album’s whole music was done by me. Apart from this, I also had a dream of directing a film, since childhood. But before straight away jumping into it I wanted to test my storytelling skills. Eventually, I ended up writing a novel.

Your Destination has Arrived” is a blend of two genres, Philosophy and Fiction. It is about how man is not free and a slave to his sub-conscious mind. These days almost everybody is looking for happiness and inner peace but many of them don’t know the right way to find it. And in this quest, sometimes people easily fall into the trap of fake gurus. The one correct way out has been described step by step in this book. And all this has been done with the help of an intriguing story which keeps the reader hooked.


Is it possible for the modern man to be happy, not virtually but in reality?

Why is it that despite the tones of philosophies, motivational speeches, and age-old meditation techniques, inner-peace and contentment seem to be unrealistic and impossible?

Bruno, a K9 (police dog), gets a human life as a reward for his phenomenal act of bravery. He can stay in this human body forever, provided he fulfills a condition in the given time. But while doing so, he has to deal with the subconscious mind of this human body, which happens to be that of a terrorist!

A tale of hope, search, and longing. An unbelievable story that you would love to believe.
