Raag Darbari, the best social-political satire of IndiaOne of the best social-political-satire written in any Indian languages, including Indian English writings. The narratives are brilliantly photographic and humorous and the depiction of events is so live and vivid that it will remain with you forever. The language of the novel is a new experiment in Hindi as the events have been described in most hilarious and funny manner bringing out the strength of words to its best. This is a must read to experience rural and semi-urban India and its social-political constitution and their conflicts. The best part is that by the sheer strength… (Expand)

One of the best pieces of proseThis book is undoubtedly one of the funniest to have come out of India. The author has created his own genre and is so downright funny that one cannot do with just one read. You would want to read it again and again. Although Bawasir, Mela, Panchayat Scenes, Introduction of Chotte...stand out for me, I can bet if you pick any random page and read any random paragraph, you cant just help feeling playfully amused!

Timeless ClassicOne of books to be read for those who have interest in Hindi Literature. The story is set in post -independence India, but doesnt seem stale or out-dated. In fact, some of villages may be having the situation depicted in the book. The author has good command over the local slangs and dialect of Awadh region and this is very well reflected in the language. The story is absolutely hilarious and the language, though in some places seems to too adult/brash, has been used such beautifully that reader will have a good time in reading this book.

Taking Satire To Another LevelI had heard about this book so much since I was a child that I had to read it. The book however proved to be way above my expectations. It is a masterpiece by Srilal Shukla that he himself was never able to match up to again.

भारतीय समाज का सच्चा चित्रइस पुस्तक को खरीदने से मैंने नहीं सोचा था कि श्रीलाल शुक्ल जी ने भारतीय (ग्राम्य) जीवन का इतना सजीव चित्रण किया होगा। शुक्ल जी ने जटिल बातों एवं घटनाओं को इतने सरल एवं व्यंग्यात्मक तरीके के लिखा है जैसा पहले कभी नहीं पढ़ा। ४५ वर्ष पहले लिखी पुस्तक आज भी प्रासंगिक है।

Classic!Must read for everyone who has spent their childhood in a vllage or a small town in Inda and also for those who did not. What a great mix of characters and their lives are presented to the readers. Every single line of this book is so relevant even today.
