Batatychi Chal (Paperback) Price: Rs.80

Witty and humorous, Batatychi Chal (Marathi) depicts the lives of the middle class families inhabiting a fictitious ‘chal’ or tenement in a place called Girgaon in Mumbai.

Summary Of The Book

Batatychi Chal (Marathi) focuses on the lives of the dwellers of a tenement called ‘Batatychi Chal’. The families living there come from lower middle class backgrounds, and the members include school teachers, music teachers, and clerks. The poignant and humorous narrative is set in the backdrop of India in the 1940s, and it laments the decline of the middle class section of the society.

The episodes in Batatychi Chal (Marathi) feature many interesting elements including a musical show, a cultural movement, songs for women, and also a few pages from the diaries of some of the residents of the tenement. Some of the main characters in the book are Baba Barve, Dwarakanath Gupte, Kashinath Nadkarni, Kochrekar, Sammel Kaka, Janoba Rege, Raghunana Soman, and Kushabhau Akshikar.

Scores of a one man show based on the episode of Batatychi Chal (Marathi) have been presented in Marathi by Deshpande himself. The first show was held in 1958, and it was the first one man show that was presented in the Marathi Theater.

World class humor..

Pu La is the most versatile personality I know so far. I mean, one can not be top Scientific writer, top musician, top screenplay writer, director, actor, singer, comic writer, play writer etc. etc. AND a visionary at the same time, like he was. And to understand his work given that he excelled at so many fields, one must has achieved a certain level of understanding.

And to understand his work given that he excelled at so many fields, one must has achieved a certain level of understanding.

Batatyachi Chal is a must read for people who understand Pu La. In fact, if one knows Pu La, then he/she has read this book is an implication. This book is about classic lifestyle in "Chal". His homour always has a thin lining of sarcasm and criticism at the times. Pure fun and whole new perspective is a guaranteed gift one CAN get after understanding the work of this visionary.

Go for it!

This is my second 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.

** I bought it as a Birth Day gift for my friend and I got a Happy Birth Day bookmark with it! It was such a sweet shock for...

Book's good

The book was delivered sooner than the delivery date which I have started to expect from flipkart. Nothing much to say about the book. The book was in a good and brand new condition. I cannot comment on the book's literary content because that's completely my subjective opinion. I love any of P. L. Deshpande's works and this is one of his best.

So buy if you like it; dont worry about the quality of the book or the delivery.
