  • I have to believe now that little books, slim novels which run just over a few hundred pages pack a massive punch. They could have been composed by authors for years, every page being written, rubbed, written, rubbed, until it shines bright. The objective of such books, I think, is to destroy, with every passing page. And in that they hardly ever fail, never, if they are composed by masters who know that theirs is going to be a long story told short. Take for example Manohar Shyam Joshi’s ‘T [...]


  • Initial feelings :मनोहर श्याम जोशी जी का फेन हो गया हूँ, पहले नेताजी कहिन, और अब ये…क्या satire उनकी हर कहानी का अहम हिस्सा होता है ? ट्रेजेडी तो होती ही है। और ऊपर से इसमें तो ठेठ ( भुस-गंवार, लेखक के शब्दों में ) क [...]


  • My Rating 4/5 is for original Hindi version of book written by Shri M.S.Joshi jiThis is a story of a story. From Comic to lusty to tragedy to what not, it keeps on rolling. Your state of mind will change in various intervals as story paces.Without doubt, Joshi ji unbearable and unputdownable at the same time. I will, someday, like to read the English translated version as well.


  • The book passes through all the major phases of emotions - Boring, Hilarious, Twisted, and Tragic.I am not sure if I like this book as a good work or as a disturbing-yet-hilarious (as someone else commented) joke.


  • Did not really enjoy this book. Comes across as an ambitious translation which fails to do justice to the original.
