An offbeat Yellowback is a collection of stories and anecdotes for readers with short attention span and lack of time.
A book for the millennials who slog for a meagre salary, go broke by end of each month and yet recklessly spend on weekends. It’s for the chronically depressed & the anxious insomniacs who live in denial because therapy is more expensive than a drink. It’s also for the abused and for the lost childhood.
It’s for those who have a bitter-sweet relationship with traffic and rain, who archive their lives on social media and wish for one last day to live. And about cab rides and first love.
But mostly, it’s for you because you’re destined to be reading this at this moment, right now.

A very thin handy book of 70 pages that has powerful bold unapologetic ways of describing the harsh truth of our so called modern society. The hypocracy that goes through people 's blood and mind that the author has presented in sarcastic ways ornamenting with appropriate words at places makes this book a thing of beauty. .
From the splash of nostalgic memories of teenage love to every day struggle of an ordinary Good Daughter's coming back not late than 6 pm to getting unwelcomed humping of dirty minded men in crowdy buses, various chapters in the book touch all such incidents that add to happiness and agony of daily ordinary life. Through her sharing of her own incidents of life she asks us to think how will we choose to live our life if we knew the day was the last one we have. It talks about coping with depression as well.
Unique book that is a non-fiction without genre but one that covers everything we go through in our life , from daily incidents to our complex thinking process. .
Absolutely not doubt a very nice book at such an affordable cost with excellent page quality , binding , cover , font. .
I rate it a 4.5/5 and definitely recommend it for a light read.
P.S-People who want to begin reading as a hobby -do start with this book!
These stories showcase a fluidity of humanity – I loved turning the pages in this short collection of stories to find myself in these words, these thoughts, and this foray of emotions. The reader ends up recognizing pieces of their thought processes in the words between the pages, if not all; then definitely some of them.
As with all short story collections – I wasn’t able to read this one in one sitting – it’s an issue with me, I need time to process the myriad of emotions that the collections tend to arouse in me – so this collection, a total of 63 pages still took me time to get through.
But it is also a collection that I do believe the Indian millennials would love to read – for it would show that the feelings that have, the thoughts and opinions they come under doesn’t mean that they are alone in this world!
The sarcasm and humor is something to witness. Reading this book was more like having a conversation with a friend, who is illustrating the highs and lows of their life and sharing the experiences with you.
This book was a pure delight to read. The stories were short and relatable, and it was a pleasant read. It talks about topics ranging from crushes, relationships to the heavy burden of being the "good girl". More harsh realities and put to perspective in her books that are at times left unsaid. Sensitive topics like depression are also talked about in a subtle manner in the book.
At moments when you feel trapped in a reading block or when you can't read a lot, you can pick this book up and read it in one go and feel confident about your reading.
I enjoyed the book as it stood different from the monotonous genres and stories and concepts and was something fresh and delightful.
If you are a beginner and even a hard-core reader, I would recommend you to give this book a chance.
PS: One thing that I do want to mention is that the book is 70-80 pages long and is 110 inr so if you find it on a steal deal during sales then pick it up. Otherwise the price to page ratio is high as compared to other books. If you don't mind spending a bit more on a good book then go for it.
