    Description

    Under Delhi is an angry and humorous novel by Sorabh Pant. It is a tongue-in-cheek satire on the issues of rape and sexual assault in India.

    Summary of the Book

    With his hilarious flair and blatant voice, Sorabh Pant writes about a girl’s tribulations with the issues of sexual assault and rape in Delhi. As wise politicians and holymen will soon tell you, girls who are raped are merely “asking for it”. They wear skimpy clothes and eat fast food and chow mein, all of which add to their sexual vibes. Women need to take care of how they dress in public, and to do this they may need to ask a certain president’s son for fashion advice. After all, he is only too willing to offer it for free despite his busy schedule. And, of course, there is always the failsafe. Call your would-be rapist “bhaiya” and he will be filled with brotherly remorse, letting you go free. These are all that any woman in Delhi needs to do to avoid being raped. Or, they could just ignore the words of these wise men and kick men right in the family jewels. Angry with the issues of rape, Tanya Bisht decides to do just that, over and under Delhi.

    Great book!

    I am a great fan of Sorabh Pant's and I love that his writing is so great. This is a very good book with a fabulous story that is relevant to our times. It deals with a serious issue in a mature and sometimes funny way without getting dull or morbid.

    Fantastic read and a must buy!

    Under Delhi

    Under Delhi is a story of Tanya Bisht, who is living in Delhi and is far removed from the stereotypes of the typical Indian woman and rightly so, reality being her guide. But she is one of the few women who rise up from her abuse to a pedestal of a vigilante; she teaches the perpetrators their much needed lesson on girl power. With a fetish for fingers, Tanya also has a dark sense of humour, something that the author lends to her character from his own self. Under Delhi is a page turner and i...

    Excellent book!

    Under Delhi is a sparkler of a book by a writer who is best known for his comedy and should be equally known for his writing. I would recommend this as a must-read for everyone.

    Delhi’s Batgirl

    The narrator and protagonist of Under Delhi, Tanya Bisht, is a vigilante. Traumatised by an incident in her past, she vows to eradicate perpetrators of crime against women, or rather, make them pay. And like Batman, Tanya would never kill.

    Outwardly, Tanya is a typical Delhi girl. Come night, however, and she transforms into a destructor of evil, roaming the city in search for those perpetrators who, due to loopholes in the legal system, slipped through the cracks. She catches them, beats t...

    Manic Dark Humor

    Sorabh Pant is Indias leading standup comedian and his book Under Delhi is replete with humor albeit of the dark kind. Purely adult comedy which hits you at the right places. It talks about the 'R' word, in Delhi, in a thrilling account of a young womans life.
    It is interesting how the author describes gory crime against women intertwined with humor. The protagonist, a vigilante has a life that is troubled, lonely, and centres around punishing men let off by the arm of law. Add to that a perv...

    Witty one-liners with a routine premise

    It is always interesting to see popular bloggers and standup comedians become authors. One, it shows if a good blogger than hold a reader's attention through an entire book as opposed to a blog post. Two, it shows if the standup comedian can work his way around a book the way he does with a show of his own. Sorabh Pant mainly succeeds in the second category by ensuring that is a enough hilarity in his narrative of a very average premise.

    With some good writing and a generous seasoning of so...
