Way to go Melvin!I have been reading Melvin's columns for more than a decade now. So, when he came out with the book, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The book is a laughter riot, but at the end it also brought a tear or two to my eyes, when Bala actually takes the plunge! I must also commend Melvin/Kedar with the work on the book cover. It's different!

Having my Fingers CrossedJust ordered this book @ Flipkart. Can't wait to read it. The description by itself is very humorous. Always loved Melvin's Columns.

Melvin takes a plunge...right into our funny boneAs someone who've loved Melvin's quirkly style of puns largely centered around mad word play for over 10 years now, I got to say, the book doesn't disappoint at all. Do NOT read this for a great plotline or a twist in the tale or as a great literary classic, it makes absolutely no such pretentions. The book is meant to be a fun joyride on a lazy afternoon while lounging around in a cozy sofa. The characters are well-etched with all their witty eccentricities which makes me suspect of a movie in the making. I especially liked the dad, with his series of malapropisms, all of which are even more … (Expand)

Muffled giggles on an airplaneI picked this up because it looked like a nice, easy read for a two-hour flight. I hadn't heard of Melvin Durai or read his columns earlier and the book was my first introduction to his writing--and what writing! I had to keep from emitting loud snorts and giggles on the plane. An absolutely wonderful book--I could totally relate to it. Funny and sensitive, it shows great insight into Indian culture/thinking.

12.5 hours later, it's still funnyGreetings. I am a big Melvin Durai fan, living in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Bala is not yet available here, but I would not miss it, because I read all of Mr. Durai's e-mail columns and post them to friends. Hope you enjoy reading the book.

Dog eared most pagesI had bought 2 copies for my friends in Chennai before I finally got one for myself as I knew this book is a blast to give and read.
