Bollywood Invasion tells a story about an modern day American boy going back to 1958 India and his journey as the reincarnation of John Lennon.

The story starts from modern-day Brooklyn. sixteen-year- old John Palmieri is living an average life until one day he is hit by a bus and wakes up as Raj Scindia, a prince in India, in 1958.
Suddenly, he finds himself with riches and power beyond his wildest fantasies. Brooklyn is readily forgotten. He makes out with his hot teacher; he tells about the future; his new life becomes a constant stream of debauchery till he meets “the one”.
However, love doesn’t come easy. He must become a better man, a pursuit ignited by his memories of the Beatles songs on his iPod. These legendary songs do change John’s life. Not only he marries the love of his life, he also becomes the brightest star in the world, a world that John Lennon does not exist. He doubts he ever need to find a way back to Brooklyn.
His perfect life collapses in 1968, when everyone he loves dies because of him. His world collapses. For the next decade, he lives in pain and confusion. He does not know if he is Raj or John. He does not know he is living a dream or dreaming a lie. He cannot find the answer until 1980, when he meets a man—a familiar stranger whom he thinks God has sent to help him.
Bollywood Invasion is actually my first born and it took me five years to write to my own satisfaction. But it is well worth the effort. The story-line is filled with many unexpected twists and turns. Many popular Beatles songs are beautifully integrated with the plot, providing a unique reading experience.
An imaginative…rock ‘n’ roll fantasy
A story that is should to become a classic in its own right
An engrossing saga that excels in unexpected turns of plot
