    Description

    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.

    Discover Delhi

    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 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 angr...

    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 flig...

    OMG

    OMG

    That was precisely my first reaction to this debut novel:-)

    The book very effectively & at times humorously encapsulates many shades of this melting pot called Delhi. And the city has a palpable living entity in the novel with it's queer, weird & grey value systems. It's also a growing up & 'rites of passage' novel .One can easily identify & connect with the protagonists' angst & agonies as he goes thru life..The myriad collage of observations about the city & it's people are astute &...

    Quintessentially Delhi !!!

    For all those in Delhi since long, this book is a must read. Personal experiences, detailed research and gainful insight has given the book its distinctive flavour and has left me with mixed emotions - nostalgia, bliss, sadness and frustration of duality.

    The author has detailed out nuances which could not have been possible without experiencing the same first hand and that lends credibility to the book. The use of expletives, a communication style most prevalent and successful in Delhi, "t...

    No plot or storyline but great insight into Delhi

    In terms of a novel this has no storyline to speak of. It does however contain lots of insights into how Delhi ticks through the use of topical anecdotes. As a foreigner living in Delhi I enjoyed identifying with some of the experiences of the protagonist as well as learning new things about this great city

    Wonderful reading

    I did not keep the book down till I finished it. So realistic! It took me back to my younger days in Delhi. What a city this used to be and what a city it has become now! Vinod has succeeded in mesmerising and touching the soul of the reader? Looking forward for more books from him. Wishing him all the best.
