It Happens Only in India

R N Sharma (Author)

The book is a collection of very interesting and readable pieces of narrations/short stories earlier published by the author in different reputed newspapers. Most of these pieces have India's local backdrop as their themes which revolve around common men and women with their beliefs lifestyle and cultural affiliations.

Written in simple language and easily comprehensive manner these short stories bear testimony to authors keen observation. The incidents picked offer a vast variety of issues of common concern for all sections of Indian society--rich and poor, educated and illiterate, orthodox and modern young and old and simple and fashionable. Each story narrates some incident or happening in an interesting way and leaves a message for the reader. Some of the stories like Death of a Park, Wait for Jaimala Gandhi Who? Backdoor entries etc. are satires on some particular social behaviour. They mostly deal with the issues and problems of Indian society.

There is a deep rooted sense of humour underlying all the stories which makes them so special. The headings of the stories are not only appropriate but also evoke immediate laughter. Some keywords from Indian dialect like Jaimala Samadhi paan filmi damad etc. have been used throughout the writings to create a humorous effect. Even commonplace situations are narrated in such a fascinating style that the reader is compelled to continue reading them with interest and enthusiasm.

The book will find favour with a wide cross section of people particularly those who prefer light and inculcating reading.
