  • Description
    "Jami is the Gigolo King of Kalkatta. A Bihari smuggled into India from Bangladesh, he is given refuge by his uncle, a leader of the ruling Communist Party, and grows up in Zakaria Street, dreaming of becoming a pukka Kalkatta-wallah. When friendship with a local gang leads to his dropping out of school, he ends up as assistant to a passport forger, and then as a masseur. Kalkatta opens its doors and Jami is soon drawn into the world of the rich and famous, housewives, tourists and, occasionally, high-paying and dangerous ‘parties’. His life takes a turn when he meets a young boy, Pablo, and his mother Mandira. But his love for the boy threatens to destroy everything, and even drive him away from his beloved city."

    The other Kolkata, what Kunal Basu addresses as Kalkatta.

    A complete different rendition of the city Kolkata. This books takes us to the blind alleys of this city that we generally do not visit. This book compels us to give a second thought to the concepts like Refugee and Gigolo. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. N yes this book is worthy enough to be in someone's collection as well. and last but not the list how can I forget the outstanding front cover of this book which is an absolute stunner.

    Awesome

    I only have praise for this book. Very well written book about a Muslim immigrant growing up in Calcutta. It is engaging, riveting and one of those unputdownable books. Read it even if the summary bores you to death. The book will not. I wonder why I picked this book up to read. But I sure as hell am glad I did.
