    Description

    No Onions Nor Garlic is a story of four friends, Amandeep, Murugesh, Rufus, and Sundar, who feel that attempting things like removing the muffler from their motorcycles or talking dirty makes them men. The title of the book is derived from a of class of Tamil Brahmins who rewrite Shakespearean texts in order to make them onion-and-garlic-free and thus uphold the Hindu order. Such transcribers are found both on and off the campus of Chennai University. It is a story how these four friends find themselves in a situation that is much to their dislike. It is on an occasion when Professor Ram decides to stage a remake of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the college fest that the four friends find themselves being casted as fairies. Such and other characters like NRIs who look for marriageable girls and visiting Canadians who are taken aback by the condition of the Dalits in India are all part of the fabric of the novel.

    Srividya Natarajan teaches English at the King’s University College, University of Western Ontario. She earned her Phd from the University of Hyderabad. Her area of interest is the caste system prevalent in south India. Some of her other books include The Tamarind Tree, Wrestling Mania, Sweet and Salty, and Mazoo Mazoo.

    Its a complete waste

    This book is a complete waste of your money and more important time.. Even a drunk or illiterate would write a better book. Completely headless with no direction. On a scale of 1 to 5, this book is a minus 5.

    A Brilliant Satire!

    This is a hilarious, brilliant satire about casteism in Madras University. The writing invokes pure laughter on almost every other page. A book that is almost as good and funny as Wodehouse at his best, I am surprised that more readers are not raving about it.

    Look forward to read more from Natarajan.

    Castrating 'Caste-logic'

    A fantastic book which breaks boundaries of criminal casteism and shallow Brahminism.. Scathing,acidic.. This book is a must-read for people who believe in a society where there is no 'dirty' downtrodden or 'pristine' uptrodden.
