A small r changes the perception of kama Sutra to Karma Sutra

Karma Sutra is all about the real people with whom we never get a chance to interact. We
might get a chance to encounter them on Juhu beach or any local train in Bombay but somehow we
never try to see what Rajendar is able to see and retrieve it from them. The next time I visit
Juhu beach in Bombay I would really feel that all the people there would have their own story
to tell!

The author Rajendar Menen has the fantastic ability of narration. His write-ups take you right
there to the characters he is talking to. You feel like that you are there with Tara (the sex
worker in kamathipura)in...

Juhu beach in Bombay I would really feel that all the people there would have their own story

The author Rajendar Menen has the fantastic ability of narration. His write-ups take you right
there to the characters he is talking to. You feel like that you are there with Tara (the sex
worker in kamathipura)in her cubical watching her making tea for you or Tulasa Thapa, the
rescued sex worker from Nepal, sitting beside you in the hospital garden near Kathmandu.

Without using big and heavy words the author packs a powerful punch. The power and command
over the English language is fantastic. He prefers to play with simple words in a very clever
way. This makes the book more than just a documentation of characters; one enters their lives
and feels their pain while reading the book. You are left teary eyed.

The title of the book I find very interesting. Even though a lot of the book is on sex work,
by inserting an 'R' in Kam Sutra, the author changes the perception of the subject! His book
is even spiritual and one tends to look at one's own life and suffering. At the end, we wonder
about our lives and its purpose on this planet.

It is a fantastic book! Starting from the introduction, the author invites you to come along
with him to see the other side of the world which is unknown to most of us. He then unfolds to
us the reality of such a world. There is no judgement and no moral stance as the author takes
on the so called 'vulgar world' with dignity and empathy.

This book is a must-read for all those interested in the 'other side of midnight'.

Karmasutra- Adventures Of A Street Bum

Reading "Karmasutra- Adventures Of A Street Bum" was quite a "journey". The book is a true along with being a raw documentation of incidents which evokes emotions of every shade and that itself was quite an experience. Being "kind of aware" about such characters and also events present in the society, is nothing compared to know them closely through the pages of this book. Hats off to the author for being so brave and selfless- in every way to delve into people's environments and psyche, in spite of the lurking dangers all around him. Mumbai for the world is a... ()

The book is a true along with being a raw documentation of incidents which evokes emotions of every shade and that itself was quite an experience. Being "kind of aware" about such characters and also events present in the society, is nothing compared to know them closely through the pages of this book. Hats off to the author for being so brave and selfless- in every way to delve into people's environments and psyche, in spite of the lurking dangers all around him. Mumbai for the world is a city of glamour, glitz and commerce. This book is a "on your face" account of the strong under-belly also such an integral part of this city. Also was quite impressed with the author's sense of humour while writing about such real and dangerous incidents, which besides giving a good laugh reading about them one realizes that there are so many sides to one event. A big "thank you" to the author for writing such an awesome book and may we get more.

Mumbai not seen by even the native

I'm a native but I didn't know this Mumbai existed. The author took the blanket off my eyes and showed me the real Mumbai in flesh and blood. Aside from street life in Mumbai, this book is about life itself. Amazing book. A must read if you want to understand Mumbai a little bit.

Underbelly Exposed

Rajindar Menen has presented facts of the life in the streets of Mumbai. He writes about pimps, prostitutes, devdasis and the third gender with understanding and understanding based on decades of study. He does not romanticize it or bring out the sleazy side thoughtlessly. The customs and economic reasons push young girls into the trade. Many opt to continue in it as it is more acceptable than life at in the village. Readiding this book is worthwhile by all those who are interested in a proper social understanding.
