    Description
    Agni Sreedhar is an underworld don turned writer turned journalist turned filmmaker. He studied law in Bangalore and was intent on entering the Indian Civil Service when circumstances forced him to turn to crime. Starting from the early 1980s, Sreedhar found himself entrenched in the bitter gang wars that shaped the contours of modern Bangalore. This book is an intimate, first person account of the two decades he spent in the world of crime. But My Days in the Underworld isn't just a tale of murder and blood. It is a study of a system that runs parallel to the world ordinary people inhabit, a lateral universe, one with its own police force and laws, one where the criminal justice system has all but failed.
    This is a story of a city as seen through the personal histories of politicians who ruled Karnataka, men like Gundu Rao, Ramakrishna Hegde, Bangarappa and Deve Gowda, as well as those who were responsible for shaping Bangalores underworld - Dawood Ibrahim, Chhota Rajan, Sharad Shetty, Kotwal Ramchandra, Jayaraj and Muthappa Rai.

He recounted his experiences in the underworld in the bestselling Dadagiriya Dinagalu, which won the Karnataka State Sahitya Akademi Award. He has six other works to his credit, all of which have run into multiple editions. He also writes extensively on quantum philosophy and his book In the Path of Modern Mages, based on his personal experiences, is considered a classic in Kannada. A film based on his life, Aa Dinagalu, which he scripted with award winning playwright Girish Karnad, received critical acclaim. His other films, Slum Bala, Kallara Santhe and Edegarike, also received popular and critical acclaim. Thamassu, on communal intolerance, which he scripted and directed, received the Karnataka State Award for Best Story.

    Mind Blowing ..... !!

    Books starts with a slow pace ends like a maverick. I personally felt all the lives mentioned in the book. Last words by Sreedhar has really made me curious to know the lives of his and Bachan after they started the the weekly newspaper.Thanks to the translators for doing an awesome job :)

    Agni Sreedhar is one amazing writer. The book is plain, descriptive and the incidents are presented very well. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I must admit it was a bit difficult to let go this book, once you start reading it!
