Bala dreams of making Tamil films and directing his favourite actor Rajnikanth – a dream that leads him naturally to study engineering in college. This earns him his father's approval and the opportunity to export himself to America. As Director of Design at Flexit Inc., thinking up new ways to help Americans shed the excess weight around their middles and in their wallets, he is at least some kind of director. Bala loves America, and America it seems loves him even more. He has everything he needs to be happy: a green card, a satellite dish to watch cricket and a companion to share his home – albeit one with a very limited vocabulary. But he is now less than a year away from the big 30, and if he doesn't act fast he might have to settle for whichever bride his Amma chooses. So begins Bala's quest for romance as he meets both American and Indian women, some who are too old, others too young, and yet others just too stuck up. Will he ever find someone just right for him – and good enough to inherit his mother's Corelle dishes?

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.
