About the Book :

The wave of liberalization in the 1990s changed forever the face of India. It bolstered the economy. It raised the stock index. It raised hem lines of skirts even more. It led to the growth of the fashion police. And also the moral police. Numbered items became item numbers. To the twenty-two scheduled languages were added C, Cobol, Java. You were either watching sitcoms or starting dotcoms. News became entertainment. Entertainment became news. Terror struck the country -- sometimes in the form of gunmen from across the border and sometimes in the form of Bollywood movies.

To SMS-ize – 'It wuz da best of tyms, it wuz da wrst of tyms.'

Having been a part of this chaotic revolution in popular culture, blogger Arnab Ray of takes a funny, sarcastic, politically incorrect and totally irreverent look at assorted random stuff including Bollywood C-grade revenge masalas, ribald songs of the people, movie punching, fake educational institutes, stubborn bathroom flushes, unreal reality shows, the benefits of corruption, opulent weddings, brains in toaster ovens, seedy theatres and pompous non-resident Indians.

Nothing here is off-limits and no cow too holy.

But from the moment I read the first (or is it the latest) post on the blog, I was hooked on to it. The satiric, sarcastic writing of the dude is so interesting to read especially since I am a great fan of that sort of writing. I liked it so much that within a couple of days, I ordered the newly written book of Arnab – “may i hebb your attention pliss”. And what a delight it turned out to be. What I would have wanted to be more in the book? More twisted views on politicians of India. Something on the Yoga of Baba Ramdev. Probably a chapter on the blind faith practiced in the Indian households… the lost continues. Oh well… you can’t have it all. Some typos and minor such errors which can be easily ignored.

If you are a regular reader of Arnab’s Blog you will obviously like it…but if you have never read his blog earlier, you will be hooked to it from now on…thoroughly witty and humorous…especially the professor in a class in the 24th century explaining his pupils about the concept of Bait & Switch in the memorable songs like “Hum to Tambu mein Bambu lagaye baithe” or like “Padosan apni murgi to rakha sambhal mera murga hua hai deewana”, the amazing experience of Poltu when he went to watch a movie (Charlie Chaplin’s)….The Grand Indian Bengali Wedding (Arnab’s), and you think only you suffered in your wedding …the best chapters as expected were the ones based on Bollywood…you will know more about Gunda - the best creation in the celluloid history of Indian Cinema (or rather World cinema)…about the avant-garde film like Aatish which explored the concept of “you now what” long before Brokeback mountain was released…your child doesn’t listen to you and care a damn to your warning when you tell him that he will become a good for nothing clerk if he doesn’t mend his ways, well either show him the Manoj Kumar’s chef-d'oeuvre ‘Clerk’ but if it is too difficult to find a VCD for that then make him read this book in which Arnab has explained his own metamorphosis from a careless student to a diligent one after watching this Gem… How to start your own business school, how to write Hindi TV serials, NRI Aunties…these are also interesting satires but I would desist using adjectives like Superb, extraordinary for these as I am not a paid reviewer of Great Bong… And ofcourse you don’t want me to tell you more about the chapters of this book…after all as Kulbhusan Kharbanda has uttered in a super duper hit movie and which arnab has used in the book, “kuch baatein (pause) gupt rahnee chaiye”
