Dancing with Maharaja - in the IAS Exam Gullies (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.80

Set in the late 90's and the millennium year, Dancing with Maharaja is about how Satish - the only son of Rajaraman, a rich liquor - shop owner in Madurai and rated "beyond repair" by all his school and college teachers - much against his will finds himself in the streets of Old Rajinder Nagar teeming with tea shops, moms on rent, book stalls and IAS coaching institutes; and what is in store for him in the demanding and eventful journey of IAS exams.

Woven around the rigorous IAS exams schedule of prelims-mains-interview, the story captures the lift style of the civil service aspirants and explores the myriad hues and shades of all that go into making the steel frame of the country.

About The Author

Before joining the civil services in the year 2007, Sundar had a brief stint with Tata Chemicals Ltd. An engineering graduate from BITS, Pilani, the author completed his MBA from SIBM, Pune (2004). A person with no specific interest, Sundar is fond of many things in life like - movies, writing, a bit of reading, traveling, photography, some cricket, music, etc. Married to one of his IRS batch-mates, Jayanthi, the author is currently serving as an Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax in Goa.

Dancing with Maharaja

Wonderful.. Awe-inspiring

Yes, Wonderful is the word which first comes to my mind after reading it. I have to admit the day I got this book in courier I started reading that afternoon and didn't really bothered about anything unless I finished it. So YES, it is quite involving and with the simple yet descriptive language it transformed me into the world of Satish.
Sundar has done a good job in gradually building up the story and providing reader with kind of 3D view of whats happening around.. how the apartments in Delhi look like, how a wine shop is doing business, what is happening in O...

So YES, it is quite involving and with the simple yet descriptive language it transformed me into the world of Satish.
Sundar has done a good job in gradually building up the story and providing reader with kind of 3D view of whats happening around.. how the apartments in Delhi look like, how a wine shop is doing business, what is happening in Orissa during the disaster and even how Delhi monkey family treats themselves and stranger ... haha. And I lived in all the moments while reading through.
We all know our cultural inhabitance where parents' desire to see their kids what they regard as best for them and on contrary the new generation thinking themselves as freethinker completely ignore them. And Satish's story depicts how strong and sincere feelings of parents can transform the spoilt brat like him. :)

I am sure this story is worth reading (also its now available on 25% discount ha ha ;) )

You know what.. I think.. If Satish could do it Then Even I CAN :)

Cheers Sundar
I thoroughly enjoyed it... and eagerly waiting for the next one.

a fantastic debut novel

Dancing With Maharaja, a fantastic debut novel by a prolific writer Sundar. Every generation of fathers impose their dreams upon their progeny .Satish, the protagonist is also not exception, and he too ran after chasing his father???s dream relinquishing his own ambitions. The novel narrates the journey of a hopeless and pampered son of a rich liquor contractor to his achievement of becoming IAS. The story is well written in lucid languages. The readers nowhere feel boredom while the flowing in the storyline. The beauty of the novel is that the author is in his own style and absolutely free... ()

The novel narrates the journey of a hopeless and pampered son of a rich liquor contractor to his achievement of becoming IAS. The story is well written in lucid languages. The readers nowhere feel boredom while the flowing in the storyline. The beauty of the novel is that the author is in his own style and absolutely free from Chetan Bhagat effect which is prevalent in budding young writers of these days. This novel of Sundar augurs well for abstaining from introducing sex or love-making scenes just to prepare a saleable stuff. The last scene of DWM reminds me a little bit O Henry endings. Lastly, while reading this novel every IAS aspirant will see himself as Satish toiling hard to achieve his goal and having a longing for a Payal

The book as well motivates the aspirants that the examination is open to all.Clearing it requires hardwork,intelligence,innovation and not just I.Q.In cinematic sense the book is FULL MEALS. It has a real story,sensible comedy,relevant action,acceptable romance, neat climax.Mr Rao

On the whole the novel is perfect and go on to show that if you believe you can do something extraordinary and strive for it things will automatically fall in place for you.It also go on to show how the half of our beauracats are being churned out in the intense atmosphere.

Dancing with Maharaja

Dear Sundar,
Congratulations on your first book, 'Dancing with Maharaja'. We hope it is one of many more novels to come.
This book has been explicitly written and the detailed accounts are beautifully described. As a reader my imagination was running along side the book page by page.
The suttle humour is great. Easy reading and well understood by an 'Indian' reader.
The most touching feature I found was how a father channelled his son to taking on responsibilities without pressurising him and encouraging him to leave home taught him to become a man with responsibilities and passion.

The book holds the reader's attention page by page and until the end the suspense awaits you.
Keep writing and try also to expand your audience to international levels.
Good luck,
