About the Author
"Jeet Gian was a happening person till he became a chartered accountant (and got married). He was born and brought up in Kutch (Motto: Nobody knows where it is) before permanently and successfully settling (after marriage) in Dubai.
His present dream is to become the President of India and continue his writing passion full time without tensions and work at Rashtrapati Bhavan (Motto: We deliver best ISO-certified awards), New Delhi!
He is a great communicator and is on good terms with clients, media, and almost everyone around him, except his in-laws. He has been interviewed by Dubai TV, Zee TV-Gulf Pulse, CNN Arabia, Radio 103.8, and on many occasions by his mother-in-law!
Divya, his life and business partner (only in profit), is also a chartered accountant. Both are blessed with two kids: a daughter, Falguni, and a special-needs son, Krishna. For Divya, children come first; the rest of the world is just Tom, Dick, and Jeet.
He is up by 5 am, even if holidaying on Star Cruise, and is a fitness buff. Plus, he eats once every two hours, just like how babies do.
Jeet is a published author, and his debut effort is named The 3 U-Turns of My Life, which is well-received by nurseries across PAN India and it is highly recommended by doctors for patients suffering from insomnia!
For more information about Jeet, call his mother directly on the toll-free number: 1800-MENTAL HOSPITAL."

Cover- The cover has light coloured scheme and perfectly proves the motive as it has three monkeys in the most wierdest poses which will surely make you laugh. This gives us an idea about the element of humor being a major part.
Title- The title is witty and grabds the attention of the reader. Three Wise Monkeys is an apt title which is a pun intended by the author.
Blurb- The trio – Amar, Akbar, and Anthony – had no clue whatsoever about their goddammit indecisive careers – and – indefinite – struggles.
And that was because they were born with the Peter Pan Syndrome and were simple enough to be tricked by anyone, including their mystifying girlfriends – Meghna, Farah, and Sarah.
And as is the fate of all morons, they were drawn into trouble – deep trouble – of hiding crores of rupees of black money in secret offshore companies.
Will their mistake of turning a blind eye to the philosophy of ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ cost them their careers and put them in prison?
Will Lady Luck change their fortunes forever?
Plot- The plot is gripping as it revolves around the lives of three people Amar, Akbar and Anthony and the way they handle the situations in the most humourous ways. They have serious issues but always tackle them with their witty attitude even if they are in grave trouble.
HUmour as an Element- The author has artisitically added humour in his novel and the use of witty dialogues related to politics and bollywood is appreciable.
Theme- The themes of relationships, love, comedy, corruption can be noticed in this novel.
Characterisation- The author has crafted his characters artistically. All have their own stories be it Amar, Akbar, Anthony or their girlfriends. The way the girlfriends play with them makes the readers pity them sometimes. The situations created are extremely serious but depicted in a light manner.
Style- The style of author is simple, lucid and pithy. The way he has used puns, witty sentences, comedy of manners is mind blowing. The readers end up with hearty laughter in the end.
Having a CA(Chartered Accountant) degree to your name isn't something to be proud of unless you are making some cash out of the job, same was the plight with the trio of the book. Amar Alwani, Akbar Khan and Anthony D'Douza three CAs with their hard earned CA degrees are clueless about their careers when they meet the loves of their life Meghna, Farah and Sarah. The desperate search for clients makes them run into Ashwin Kolhatkar, a cunning banker with a never filling greed who tricks them into the dirty business of money laundering without their knowledge.
Wanted by the police, tagged as terrorist by the media, their lives run haywire when they try to find the real culprit and the proof for their innocence. The Three Wise Monkeys is a story of three unwise monkeys and how they help to settle the mess in the lives of Amar, Akbar and Anthony.
The story starts with the reader's introduction with the trio, passing on to the weaving of the plot and then a funny and rather chaotic climax.
Not every author makes his characters pour "chai" on bun maska, Jeet Gian did and it was pleasant.
Most readers skip the acknowledments and about section etc of a book in a hurry to reach the story, but if you want some extra treat, do not skip the first few pages as the author surely knows how to tickle one's funny bone.
Batman in white pajamas, ill fitting Joker and a Scarecrow riding a triplet tandem cycle is the funniest thing that can happen even in the wildest of dreams.
Ratings- 3 out of 5 stars.
The horror porno scene with Tukaram was a bit confusing though the understandable details were humorous.
Despite being fun, the book happens to be an one time read.
The book is not for the ones with low imagination as the scenes in the book are fun only when the whole thing is imagined, just reading would tag them as boring.
The climax was way too much chaotic to be kept track of while reading. The plot would be better as a movie than what it is as a book.
