The few of them talks about general events ,some are satires on current situation of our society .Some points out the double standard of our mindset. This is a real treasure in these times ,when people almost lost the fine art of putting something subtly.
I must say ,that Author has a great sense of humour and he doesn't hesitate to make their readers laugh even at his own expense. From politicians to education system ,from realities of different government plans to reality of our society. This book covers number of themes and topics.
I liked almost all of chapters ,but few if my favourite and recommendation from this book are,'The Protest Technologist' , ' Left is always right', 'Mentally yours',' Tge ventilator' , ' The frog soup' ,' Chinese checkers' ,' The Bada Gilaas', 'Pakoda Tales' ,' Name dropping' ,'The Education Minister '.
I couldn't put it down until I finish it. And I am sure ,this book is going to be on my instant reading desk for a long time. And I will read it every now and then. The language is humourous and quirky.The cartoon made by author add beauty to the stories.
The narration is conversational.
A must read book !!
A collection of 60 short stories/events/real life occurred that teh author has had at different points of life.
The one thing that the author has maintained in all of these tales is the 'fun factor'. Each and every story is so humourous that reading them becomes an absolute pleasure!
While stories like 'Bisleri Brigade', 'article 377', 'fat weddings' are political satires that bring about the real picture with subtle hard hitting facts and cheek in the tongue narrative, stories like 'Bai, bahu and bayu', 'black is beautiful', 'to hell with love' are pure fun moments extracted from the author's own life. The story 'the 6th mughal' also brings to light the author personal knowledge about the the mughals as he takes us to unknown facts and details of the emperor.
My personal favourite is 'Black is beautiful'. Right from being called 'kala' by a girl while still a boy, and then going on to do facial from a saloon in adulthood and finally discovering, much to his dismay that post the facial the 'golo' (that's what the saloon fyi promised him) wasn't in the author's face but in the saloon guy's face.
The entire episode of being a 'brown burnt toast' (that's what the author calls his face to be) and the nonchalant way in which he pokes fun at himself at different points of life is simply marvellous!
Overall, an extremely fun read that would surely take you to a laughing roll.and give you that much required respite from the busy mundane life.
The language is simple and unpretentious. A light, comforting read from a writer who has a treasure chest of experiences, from which we can all benefit.
I have gone through 'Beyond My Blinkers' and it was a delightful reading experience for me. As the younger brother of this brilliant civil engineer, who was more of a friend during my early childhood, I can vouch that the incidents and anecdotes in this book are absolutely true. For instance, my brother had all the intentions of setting up a pakora shop, much to the chagrin of our late father. In his signature candid style, he has disarmingly hit some very hard nails on the existing medical system, the general political environment of the country and of Delhi in particular and has painted the perfect caricatures of some real life comical characters that he's encountered. Subir is an immensely talented person and a Dwarka celebrity of sorts, who I am sure will be a national sensation soon. He draws from his own unique experiences as a Bengali growing up in the Northern heartlands and then settling in Delhi. I hope this book is just the beginning because my brother has many, many more tales in his bag. Humor is in short supply these days and I think we all can do with more of Subir Adhicary and his kind.
