Description
Here is a wonderful introduction to the residents of Firozsha Baag, an apartment complex in Bombay. We enter the daily routine and rhythm of their lives, and by the time we reach the final story we are as familiar with the people of Firozsha Baag as we are with our own neighbours. The crowded, throbbing life of India is brilliantly captured in this series of stories.

Admirable

I recently started reading this book and was floored by the simplicity and "humane"ness of the book. It touches various aspects of human relations and does it quite well.

I recommend it to everybody who likes reading short stories which are, to be simplistic, "plain and simple"

An insight to Parsi community of Bombay

Needless to say that Rohinton MIstry is a remarkable author.
