    Description
    Imagine your hometown with a plethora of colours, having the most diverse people, a multitude of languages, religions, mindsets and gods. One word immediately pops up in our mind - “INDIA”. Now imagine the entire world like this – This is exactly what this novel delivers, topped with emotions and romance. Colourful, creative, fast-paced and informative are the words best describing this imaginative world where everything is meticulously planned with a masala mindset. Set in an imaginary British village dubbed Mayfield, this book explores the lives of an ideal middle class British family, through all their happiness and heartbreaks. The Britain in this alternate world suffers from poverty, filth, corruption, stench and dishonesty, whereas India is technologically advanced and everything around the world, ranging from machines, beliefs, food, attire and architecture have an Indian flavor to it.

    Must Read

    The Yorkshire Biryani is nothing like anything I have read before. It's a laugh riot for the satire lovers, a breath of fresh air for the history buffs, and is informative for anyone who wants to read up on India. As an Indian, we all want to see our country as the dominant force in the world, and the author imagines it for us in the best way possible, with the right dosage of humour, plotlines, character development and information. Definite read and highly rated.

From technologies in place to the culture difference and how India is the powerhouse of the world economy. Hindustani customs rule the roost.

    It is a story of a family residing in Britain which is a developing country a...

    Very engaging read till the end

    Funny situations imagined very creatively in this book. I loved reading about the characters and how much Indian vedic society can influence the world in its advanced technologies. It makes you aware the world never imagined before yet every Indian wished for.
