Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 6-7 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Asa Mi Asami (?) Price: Rs. 80

This book is a light account of the life of a middle class Indian man, set in pre-independence and later post-independence India.


Summary Of The Book

Asa Mi Asami follows a first person narrative. It is told from the viewpoint of Dhondo Bhikaji Joshi, a clerk who is working for a British firm. The book begins in the pre-independence period and continues till the post-independence era. This novel is not about politics or the freedom struggle, rather, it is about the everyday life of a middle class man.


Dhondo’s life revolves around his family and his job. He is so removed from what is happening around him in the society that he is not even very aware of the freedom movement and the upheavals around him. In fact he first learns of India’s independence when his company is taken over by an Indian businessman. He gets a promotion, but that involves a change in his place of residence, which he finds challenging.


For a man who is used to living in a chawl, one bedroom dwellings in a multi-storied building with several tenements, seems awkward. He finds life in the new system difficult to get used to.


He also finds the rapid changes in society hard to deal with. He goes to see a modern play written by a friend, but spends most of his time outside, taking care of his children. His wife gets her photo published in a paper in association with a function at a Ladies Council. This is a strange concept to him, but he likes the way his wife looks in the photograph, wearing makeup and dressed fashionably.


He is disappointed when his kids perform poorly at school, but then, when he goes through their books, he finds out that he cannot understand the topics covered in the new syllabus.


The religion that he has practiced, which was known for its restraint, is now played out in an extravagant stage, as he finds out when he is taken to visit a baba, who is surrounded by the rich and famous.


In this vein, the author highlights the fast changes taking place in post-independence Mumbai, and the struggles of a simple man to keep pace with it. Through all this runs a rich vein of humor, as the protagonist sees the irony and humor in each situation.

Go for it!

This is my third purchase from flipkart.

1) About flipkart:
i) I placed an order on 17th October 2012 and got it delivered on 22nd October 2012. So it was delivered on 5th working day. A bit late.
ii) Book was in excellent condition. Nicely laminated in very thin plastic to keep it safe and then wrapped in thick cardboard paper. Also bookmark was given with it for free. So that was nice!

2) About the book:
Paper quality was good. Print quality was nice. Loved it.

Verdict: Go for it!

Salute to the Great Pula...

The book starts a bit confusingly but after a few pages you start to enjoy the writings of the most prolific Marathi writer. The protagonists' stories of common day to day chores and the people around him are very funny and amazingly detailed. A must read for every Maharashtrian who has grown up in Mumbai(and others also) as he also manages to capture the perfect essence of post Independence Mumbai. Three cheers to him.
