About the Author
Srinath Perur is probably the funniest indian writer I have read recently.....His travel book would have made for an excellent reality TV show. Imagine the episodes in Tashkent, Dharavi and others. Pankaj Mishra when he started wrote - "Butter Chicken in Ludhiana" and then went on to write more serious books. His Butter Chicken book was delicious but not funny. Srinath is genuinely funny. VS Naipaul invented a new travel genre with "Among the Believers" and other books, but was inherently a cynic and viewed the world in a narrow, negative way. Having said that Naipaul still remains my favorite author. I actually predicted him winning the Nobel Prize. Paul Theroux did a similar journey like Naipaul, but with less depth and even more cynicism. Srinath ( i hope and pray) continues to travel and write books that are funny, optimistic and like Naipaul dig a a little deeper into the history of the places he visits. He has joined my "must read author list"....My only request - please retain your irreverent and unique style. Don't try to write serious books like Pankaj did later in his career. His books have actually become boring with time. Srinath, please keep traveling and keep writing. Maybe you can start a blog that we can follow in between your books.
