    Description
    It's true what they say - it's not we who control money, it's the money that controls us. When there's only a little, it behaves meekly, when it grows, it becomes brash and has its way with us.' From a cramped, ant - infested house to a spacious bungalow, a family finds itself making a transition in many ways. The narrator, a sensitive young man, is numbed by the swirl around him. All he can do is flee every day to an old - world cafe, where he seeks solace from an oracular waiter. As members of the family realign their equations and desires, new strands are knotted, others come apart and conflict brews dangerously in the background. Masterfully translated from the Kannada by Srinath Perur, Ghachar Ghochar is a suspenseful, playful and ultimately menacing story about the shifting consequences of success.

    Awesome

    It's a beautiful story of a family that strays from age-old values as it embraces a wealthy life style earned by spurious means. At another level it works as an allegory of the state of our nation: a strong, unflinching leader who holds the reins and demands loyalty and silence from his family in return for the 'good times' he gives them.
