The BDD chawls, scientists, their idiosyncrasies, power struggle, office romance and one underprivileged mind's cunning to take on a big scientific institution.
Really disappointed by the book.
Setup and the characters are really interesting.
But it failed to impress me beyond first 100 pages.
Too much unnecessary description and predictable drama made it boring for me.

Within in a blink of an eye, what a person may miss or do is captured by the author is an unpredictable way.
The reality which seemed harsh will rub your belly bones with laughter.
Serious Men is his first debut novels, which is a cunning war between the Dalits and Brahmin in the daily hustle of life.
The colorful spectrum of men tamarinind thoughts and carnal feelings towards women, the eerie of her eye lashes and swing of her hip bones how a man carves his own canvass is all opened by the author hilariously.
Story: Arvind is a legendary astrophysicist, a perennial Nobel candidate banned from the Vatican for having whispered something naughty in the pope’s ear. his unusual or unsettling personality traits and the unabashedly ambitious, taboo and hubristic nature made him deny the theory of big bang and search for aliens as microscopic particle falling on earth, this is what all he is concerned of, but somewhere he is suffocated by his aloofness which eats him within only due to his own lure.
Ayyan is Arvind’s personal assistant at the institute, a sweeper’s son of the untouchable caste with an affinity for mischief equaled only by his aptitude for it. Whose great grandfather's were harassed by the Brahmins, who therefore consider himself as a Buddhist even though being a Hindu, his wife who doesn't talk to neighbor watches television and his genius son who is perlingual deaf doesn't like to be called special, he and his father play games which shocked the entire school, his mother and the ethnic Brahmin people in the Indian Institute of theory.
How the father sons game flips up and down everyone's life is all you need to see.
I totally loved this book. The characters were unique and we could totally relate or see in our daily life's, but what goes behind the walls and curtains is all we know but no one says it loud.
The author has graciously penned down, the lives of the people living in the old traditional tenements in a shanty room divided two ways kitchen and a common bathroom.the efforts of newly Weds to find privacy in cramped spaces and the fear to accept the change on losing out unity, camaraderie ethos. The rising star of the chawl and praises to mother for giving birth to such a genius, saving penny by penny to to live up for months
A witty narration of child prodigy, office politcs, external affairs, mocking people up winds up your head and calm the temple with a smile on your face.
I didn't just like the switching of life between the main characters.it bored a little in between.

Serious Men is a work, where so many things happen at so many levels, so many issues are tackled or brought forward, that you tend to lose your way at places, but Joseph does manage to bring you back to the shore deftly. Joseph's prose is again sparkling, racy, his vitriolic sarcasm and ready wit regaling you in almost every page. The book is full of myriad characters, with their individual quirks and idiosyncrasies masterfully described, but for me the standout performance was always Ayyan Mani's. Ayyan is the rogue who went to Mensa, he is the Everyman, and also the Big Brother, with eyes and ears everywhere, he is the little big man of his 'chawl' society, and also the Dalit secretary who decides to wage war on his Brahmin superiors, and how! Ayyan's scheming mind is a puzzle that you revel in unravelling, and every time you feel that 'this is it, this time Ayyan Mani, you have gone too far, you and your lot are done for', the man comes up with yet another ace up his sleeve... Sometimes it's absurd, it's crazy, it's like hitting the jackpot, but you never stop rooting for him and his son Adi, his puppet extraordinaire, because of the very familiar middle-class yearnings that makes him do what he does. It's also because of the very real treatment of the prevalent class divide, which becomes a direct catalyst for the supposed 'intellect-divide', that you are not forced to suspend your disbelief anywhere. The plot, though having parts, where you are somewhat taken for a ride, a "balloon ride" at that, is ultimately grounded in the base realities of living in a honeycomb-chawl, the Indian attitude towards education and prodigies, the hypocritical behaviour that one encounters at every strata of society, where serious scientists can drop the mask of politeness and engage in washing dirty linen in public just like politicians, where infatuation turns to obsession, and betrayal is a double-edged knife... How does one rise above all this? Ask Ayyan Mani, the seriously ultimate "Un-serious Man".
