  • Usually Delivered in 5-6 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

Backseat - A ride worth taking!

I live in Singapore. But when I got into Aditya Kripalani's 'Back Seat’ I was transported to Mumbai. My Mumbai. I tell you, this is a ride worth taking’.

For the rainy Sunday afternoon, you could pick up an Indian, city bred author and read about some ‘elitist’ theme or Pop romance about pub hopping, OR pick up an Arundahti Roy or White Tiger and get into ‘poverty porn’, which is another form of elitism.

OR you could pick up Backseat - a refreshing breath of air that takes a real look at the intersection of the urban and rural. That gives you insight into the life of Mumbai in

A very satisfying and wholesome read!

Backseat is a fantastic book. It's real, with a slight dash of well oiled tadka.If I were to give an awful analogy, I would say backseat is like a perfectly made glory-filled Punjabi dish. With the right amounts of masala, sweetness and raw
taste. (bear in mind, I'm south Indian, so my idea of punjabi khana might be a little different than yours.)

It drew me in extremely quick, Backseat did. Asawari, in her pristine, unspoilt town. Her 'ordinary' everyfamily. The parallel story of another young man going through his own set of troubles. Yet another one about the struggles of being al

She'd driving the car from the BACK SEAT

Nikita is a rockstar.
The ride is a rockstar.
The end is a rockstar.
Must read. I've read it twice.
I used to think Shantaram was the best fiction book about Mumbai.
but now i think this is also a contender from the recent lot.

BACKSEAT.. AN AMAZING STORY

Backseat is an amazing STORY.. It is a book which is UNPUTDOWNABLE.. Being busy with my exam preparations and daily chores then, I would read Backseat only at night.. I read Backseat over 3 nights before going off to sleep.. And every night I would read much more than the decided no. of pages.
What a beautiful story!! Lovely characterisations of Nikita, Vijay and Shashank and the most important, of Mumbai! The characters are so real that as a reader you actually feel ONE with all of them, though each of them is diametrically opposite of the other.. The author actually gives you a peek-a-bo

Back Seat - What a beautiful read !!

I really enjoyed reading Back Seat . It was one such book where I was so attached to the story that I felt like not putting it down and wanted to just keep reading it . I used to wait to get back to reading it & to know more about whats happening in Nikita & Vijay's life . It was like she had become a friend & I had to be there for her.

Once I finished the book I remember feeling a vacuum in my heart as though some very beautiful chapter in my life had come to an end or some really close friend had decided to move to a different country & I would not get to meet her again .

Finally something which has a woman hero and isn't dumbed down!

After a fair amount of what is called chic lit, handed down to me by my wife, i thumbed through this book and ended up reading it cover to cover.

Just goes to show heroes who are women can be as shocking, intelligent, unique as any in any other regular commercial stories.

Publishers are you listening?

A Must Read!

Backseat is a story that is as real as it gets. When I first starting reading it.. I was not too sure that i'd like it. But the book grows on you as you turn each page. The characters Nikita, Vijay and Shashank transition from fictional characters and become real people. I have smiled, cringed, laughed and felt sad and scared along with Nikita, Shashank and Vijay.

I remember jokingly telling Aditya(the author, a friend and a great guy!) that I might just learn to speak Marathi by the end of the book! It feels like that TV show that becomes part of your daily life and you just don't wan

Backseat is unputdownable

Backseat is like a journey into Mumbai, into its murky corners where lies a lot of heartfelt stories. And I feel Aditya has been able to tell Asavari's story very realistically. Every character has a lot of depth and is dealing with different struggles in life but they still have a lot in common. Every Bombayite must read it! It's fast paced, exciting and has well thought out characters. The lingo takes you back to Bombay every now and then. I wanted to continue reading the book and not stop till I find out what happens to her in the end. That's why, unputdownable. It's a very good read! Can'

UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE : BACKSEAT ROCKS!

Backseat made me fall in love with this girl Nikita. She is an unforgettable character. Throughout the story, it made me feel that it all happened.. and Nikita is somewhere in this world.. In a few parts it actually made me cry, especially towards the end and also made me raise eyebrows.. Profanity at it's best! Hats off to the amazing writing skills possessed by the author.. He's done a tremendous job and it has developed in me the habit of reading, really thankful to Aditya Kripalani. I imagined all the characters in my mind just as they were described in the book and actually felt my existe
