Delhi OMG! (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.138

Delhi OMG! is the story of one man’s struggle for survival in the colorful, yet tough Indian city of Delhi.

Summary Of The Book

Delhi OMG! is the story of a man named Dinesh. It is set in the big, bad city of Delhi, traversing some of the key places in the city and exposing its shocking underbelly.

Dinesh is a middle class man who goes from living in government flats in Netaji Nagar to a posh, luxurious DLF residence. As Dinesh goes about his life in Delhi, he encounters various characters from all walks of life. His journey also takes him to several hot-spots of the city, acquainting him with a different side of Delhi, a shocking side often hidden under the cloak of superficiality. At once humorous and hard-hitting, the story presents the vibrant as well as the dark side of life in Delhi.

The book explores themes like bribery, obsession with foreign women, sex trafficking, and the well-known fixation of Delhiites on the concept of self-image. Common perceptions about the city of Delhi are once again brought to the fore, and perhaps even strengthened by the narrative.

Delhi OMG! was first published in 2012 by Om Books International. It received positive reviews.

For anyone wanting to know what ails the big bad Delhi, this book is a must read. The city of Delhi has a very peculiar character in how it manages to erode its inhabitants??? character ??? let it be surpassing queues, overtaking on road from wrong side, having the right contacts for school admission, stealing electricity from your tenants generator, conspiring with your colleague to pull someone down or being forced to watch from trees inspite of having a legitimate ticket at Ferozeshah Kotla ??? the list is endless. If Delhi was a person Rudeness and High handedness would be its identical twins

The story of the main protagonist Dinesh unravels like any other citizen of capital, someone who has the normal aspirations for a comfortable existence but how his character gets repeatedly tested amidst the shallowness of Delhi forms crux of this novel. Dinesh moves on to get a job after completing education but it is only after he is left alone in the city post his parents moving down South that his real battles begin. He is duped by his colleagues at work, the landlord tries to fleece him, his job at a posh Diplomatic Mission shows him ugly side of picturesque places, daughter???s school admission turns all about contacts, even the next door aunty wants additional free vegetables while shopping; in short he meets rough characters at every turn and if this was not enough also visits one of the better known locales in city ??? GB Road. No he doesn???t visit for pleasure but is moved by the innocence of a young kid whom he views only for a brief moment during a short official visit (people do official stuff there too! see Delhi never ceases to surprise). Years later he tries to hunt her down still believing the brief innocent spark he had noticed in her blue eyes but little does he realize that chasing innocence in Delhi will always be futile

While I was living in Delhi I never realized how a certain crudeness had become essential for existence, its only now having moved away that I am able to appreciate and also amazed by the lack of challenge at other places. Right from a school kid who enriches his vocabulary with all the profanities to a na??ve first-timer at DDA office who discovers that nothing moves without bribes, Delhi has a dirty way of robbing innocence and making monsters of anyone wishing to survive there. Coming back to the book, it is a telling commentary on snobbishness of Delhi; the narrative manages to capture and encapsulate the contagious hollowness of the city which unnoticeably and gradually rubs on its inhabitants forming an ever present and unpleasant part of their permanent personality. The book itself is indeed well written and manages to capture the attention of the reader right from start, nowhere does it lapse in narration and keeps one hooked till the end. Importantly it manages to trigger a thought process, a significant hallmark of any good read; and even while reading through the pages, one can get so enamored by the depiction of Delhi that it is hard to say if the main character Dinesh is actually an unknown fictitious person and not the bloke next door. What I liked best about the book is the subtle reference to the ills that plague the city; nowhere does the author go over board or abuse the rough character of the city, only understated hints are dropped on what ails Delhi

Thought provoking, well paced narrative and absorbing till the end???..Delhi OMG surely rocks, go for it guys!

The Bottom Line - A great book by many measures

A gripping story that you won't want to put down. Through its powerful story, the book is a page turner and covers all themes of life; i.e. good and evil, friendship, love, pain, betrayal, heartache, joy & self redemption.

Delhi OMG looks at how the main character, Dinesh, deals with situations in his past and how those situations shaped who he become.

I was drawn in by Dinesh's relationship and love with mankind, especially his father. I sympathized with him, cheered for him and felt angry with him at different points. The character became real to me, and it was difficult for me to p...

I highly recommend this book because you are certainly going to relate to this book and want to talk about it when you finish.

Delhi OMG...awesome read!

Simple, easy and a good read. Vinod???s brought in the nuances & small unknown facts of Delhi very subtlly, interestingly and are well placed. Its relatable- All have been in situations like that or have been impacted by people who we meet along the way. The books doesn???t have scary big English words and is written in a language people like you and me speak. I love the last page- well written.. summarizes what Delhi is all about! For a non avid reader, the book engaged me over a 4 hours flight till the end! Good stuff Mr. Nair.

A humorous and hard take on Delhi and dilliwallahs with the pretentions

If you are not from Delhi and have felt strange about the value of the city and how it evaluates its people, this is it !!! Whilst reading it I felt a sense of deja vu. Interesting take on the city of delhi and its various hues. Apt title, for one definitely says OMG on multiple ocassions as the city continues to surprise us at every turn and corner.
The pace is easy, the language very Delhi-like (!!!), thought provoking and raises relevant issues such as the `gori' complex,the compromise of morality and the fakeness of most relationships.
Well worth a read

Average effort

The book turned out to be disappointing. The Author seems confused between focussing on Delhi and the protagonist and ends up with an average effort on both fronts.There are other authors who have described Delhi vividly. (View complete review)
