When twelve people with varying mindsets decide to share a cab from Dilsukhnagar area to their “out-of-civilization” workplace, it starts off as a joyride. It is a relief not to have to think of ways to commute every day, as Chandrahas aka Chandu kick-starts the process, introducing the others to the popular and disorganized “share auto transport system” in Hyderabad. They have to travel 40 kilometres one way. “It was like doing a car-pool without owning a car.”
Jatin Kuberkar forte lies in his penchant for describing people and he often juggles reality with humour. If the child-like Raghav is “a treasure trove of funny Hyderabadi taglines”, Vijaya is a traditional married woman. “The dark circles around her weak black eyes were silent witnesses of all the hard work she put to make ends meet.”
The bespectacled Binodh, forever on his phone with his fiancée, resembles Droopy, the cartoon character, while Saina reveals perfect “speech, body and face” co-ordination in the way she speaks and is individualistic and choosy about her needs.
However, it is Mohan’s description, along with his half-baked English, which makes one smile. “If a spoon full of Abhishek Bachchan, a little Hrithik Roshan and a whole lot of Keshto Mukherjee were to be blended together, the result would be Mohan. Confused, heroic and Keshto.”
Despite the initial hiccups, the ride falls into a harmonious pattern as the passengers work out ‘The Cab Constitution’, listing out the rules to be followed by all. They are aware that they have come together to sort out a common problem – that of commuting to work and back on a daily basis. Gradually, “what used to be a drab journey transformed into a fun ride”.
The cab group look forward to their regular discussions and debates on current affairs, films, cricket, finances, women’s issues, TV soaps and investments. They enjoy chaat stops even as they rail against their unsympathetic managers. They rejoice in the positive energy that has made them all more productive at work. “The cab had become a place where we could give a cathartic outlet to our emotions.”
What, then, is it that throws a spanner in the works, and derails this cab journey that had started so enthusiastically? Is it a clash of personalities or their “live and let live” policy that starts playing havoc with their see-sawing emotions? Are they “a group of ‘friends’ with a common goal” or “just ‘co-travellers’ united with a common interest without any emotional attachment?” Is it need that drives the world or friendship?
A well-crafted narrative that adheres to the spirit of the cab!
Jatin gives good description of his characters, has great perception and carried and conveyed perfect emotions of characters. Get into the CABbing all the way.... and experience the ride. Kudos……. Jatin Kuberkar
and to talk about the book, I found it interesting.
language is very neat and characters relatable. - this makes me read fast...
My full marks to the author who has done justice to all the 12 + 1** characters
Go green...Cabbing All The Way!!!
At some point or the other the working class has faced the problem of commuting to the office. A group of people in author’s office, driven by the day to day hassle of traffic jams, long distance and public transport, decide to hire a shared cab. The cab is run by this group of twelve people living in the same area.
During the running of the cab the main protagonists Chandu, Sushant, Raghav and Jatin come across many hiccups and roadblocks, but they sail through them with flying colors. The humor and exasperation, of dealing with illogical and selfish motives, has been brought to the fore leading us to ponder over complexities of human nature. Though the group splits due to some unreasonable arguments and cab stops, in the end the entire group realize their folly and come together again bound by a common goal and spirit of togetherness.
In this light hearted narrative the Mr. Kuberkar has expertly taken us through the pains and joys of commuting using a shared transport. The story has romance, drama, manipulation and a message too. The language is simple. Local slang and terms used add spice to the narrative.
I was able to relate to some of the anecdotes and enjoyed it immensely. I would highly recommend the book to anyone looking for a light, jovial tale carrying a profound message.
The Corporate India, as we know is growing exponentially in almost all the aspects of life, both professional and personal. You can call Cabbing All The Way, a tribute to the travel one does to reach work, on time and every time.
It is interestingly divided into various phases like the planning done in organizing the transport service which will reduce the cost of daily traveling, will save time and add convenience to their traveling. It is the shared transport that the colleagues think of organizing among themselves. Another important part of the story is the agreement part of every single individual involved, imagine convincing everyone to be on time, every time.
One thing that I didn't like about the book is that it fails to keep you engaged throughout, you engage with the book in bits and parts, it becomes repetitive in places, but the tiny dosages of humor at regular interval covers up for that. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a quick and simple fictional read that revolves around the life of people who live to work.
