Kh riots post Indira Gandhi’s assassination Ram Janmabhoomi Rath Yatra anti Mandal Commission protests economic liberalisation Babri Masjiddemolition and Godhra riots readers will find themselves in the grips of a chimerical tale asking and answering the uestion Is India truly a mad nation. The book begins with the shocking murder of an mentally handicapped boy; the investigation of the murder is what really makes the reader feel like heshe has hit the ground running already Some characters are deliberately portrayed to resemble real life political figures and the resemblance creates a wonderful reflection of the perceptions they have created in public life The beginning has a uality that keeps you guessing about the next step in your dreams; were you to sleep off without being able to finish itPart 2 of the book Introduction of some solid characters with enormous maturity here Some characters do seem too good to be true The careful spinning of the murder into the lives of these characters takes us through a slow churning of History Politics Religion Authority Non conformity and Philosophy I particularly liked how the author captured the misconception of 'greatness' through a laid back conversation between 2 friends One friend's nonchalance and the other one's perturbance are both palpably real That said the book slows down immensely in Part 2; it almost feels as if sudden brakes have been applied on the super hot pace of part 1Part 3 Picks up the loose ends and all the hints thrown in througout the book The only disappointment was that there wasnt enough written on how the supersleuth fits it all together All in all this book serves as a great combination of mystery suspense religion politics history secularism the mafia and even a student's star studded world in a kaleidoscopic read The author deserves praise for weaving it all in so seamlessly

    The story begins with the protagonist Vikrant Vaidya writing to the President of India from prison Convicted of murdering his neighbor Vikrant instead of the usual mercy letter that prisoners write writes a letter that intrigues the President As a result the President reuests his friend and former CBI head Vidyasagar to look into Vikrant’s case When Vidyasagar picks up the case he has little knowledge but soon he is ensnared in a loop of conspiracies that are much larger than one expectedI was born in a mentally retarded nation The first line of the book had me hooked to the book The author is speaking about my country and I cannot deny but I have often thought in the same lines As a result I immediately warmed up to the character of Vikrant He was a voice that I loved hearing throughout The author has done an expert job of narrating his story just right – without going overboard in any aspect It would have been so easy to have turned preachy and have the author rant about some issue or the other for pages But instead everything was kept straightforward and to the point The book covers everything that our nation stands for cricket books caste system religion politics and even corruption The book gives us an unbiased at least I felt so view at our nation and at us And while most of it is not pretty one cannot but appreciate the author’s viewpoint The plot has enough to offer to something to everyone and some twists did take me by surprise too However I do have issues with the ending and I am not sure if I agree with the author on itThis is one of those books that might elicit extreme reactions from people because of the sensitive topics included You may love it or you may hate it – but you certainly will not be able to ignore it

    I had the opportunity of having a glance at the Autobiography of a Mad nation today from the blurb and some reviews and also looking at the background of the writer from the back cover – I concluded that it will be another addition to the countless books on the pros and cons of the glorious democracy of IndiaThe impact was hard when I started it reading a bit reluctantly –at a cosy AC coach of Kolkata Metro It was a forty minute journey I was so much absorbed at the book that if the voice of the announcer announcing the next destination was not unluckily heard by me I was sure to miss my station I was sad that it ended when I was in page 60 The story was running at a breath taking pace –the former CBI chief was interrogating a convicted murder and fascinating facts are about to be revealed then the announcement marred it all It should be at least two hours journey then I might have plunge deeper into the storyline god do always plays spoilsportTo me it was a thriller from the very beginning the murder mystery started to grip me so uickly that I forgot the outside world almost instantly To me there was only an innocent boy trapped in a shadowy world who needs to be rescuedFull review athttpsjayasreesownwordpresscom20

    ‘I was born in a mentally retarded country’ says the first line of Sriram Karri’s ‘Mad Nation’ And while he comes across as a cool sort of a guy I met him at a Lit Fest in Lucknow his prose is anything but that It is incisive cutting and bitter or rather rant ish if I may say so Karri makes no effort to hide his frustration as he profiles India as a perfect example of an oxymoronic nation “where genius is punished but madness gets condoned angels of mercy and pity work overtime while statues of justice sleep” When I started reading the book I thought it was a light read; far from it the narrative has layers within layers and you would need to at least read this book twice to understand it The story revolves around a twenty four year old Vikrant Vaidya who has axed a Muslim boy for “stealing his poem and making a paper boat out of it” Vaidya has been awarded capital punishment and while he waits his end in an Indian prison he writes a letter to the President which triggers a series of events which will finally reveal the real motive behind this murder and many other murdersThrough Vaidya and many other youngsters like him Karri makes scathing attacks at everything our society politics religion education and the way these have evolved over the years Just as the book blurb says this book springs forth from and weaves its way through the Emergency anti Sikh riots post Indira Gandhi’s assassination Ram Janmabhoomi Rath Yatra anti Mandal Commission protests economic liberalisation Babri Masjid demolition and Godhra riots I really enjoyed reading it and here are some of my favourite lines from the book My father wanted me to be a brilliant chartered accountant play chess for India in the world championship and become an excellent Carnatic singer Therefore I became a pathetic journalist who plays dirty politics at office and a hoary voiced bathroom singer who specialises in forgotten raunchy Bollywood songsBut is it compulsory to be secular in a secular nation?History too like very old wine is for sissiesA nation should not have a sexy Prime Ministera reference has been made to Rajiv Gandhi

Is it fair to give birth to my children in the Indian democracy? Are India's notions of 'fair' and justice in dire need of a revamp? Who really revamps India's make up and who has so far? Should it if it does already even matter as to which dynasty reformed India since its formation 50000 years ago? Are the uestions asked by me an average citizen of India or any other like me going to make a difference at all? If our opinions don't and won't then whose will?Believe me when I say these are uestions you will ask yourself even if you didn't intend to as the book progresses The jump from being a murder mystery to political commentary might be a rough and bumpy one for some readers but persevere and you will find it was worth the discomfort Part three within the book is what every dead relationship and residue emotions need — closure You might hear a chink of your heart break as the book draws to a close; I know I did For 259 pages until I reached the third part I'd lived through laughed at and cried for India's struggles and events and idiocy and intelligence with sheer joy It was a flight I didn't want to disembark; a place I didn't want to leave Sriram held my hand as he took me through my country and I wasn't willing to let go I read the book in its digital format but I'd definitely pay the marginal premium price and buy its hardback version if one exists or a paperback too This one's for the bookshelves This book needs to be a part of the legacy you leave behind if you are an Indian — and if you don't know what your own personalised legacy is going to be then that's reason than any to read Autobiography of a Mad Nation right away

    First things firstI just don’t have to wait for about 100 pages to get into the story that’s a big relief The narrative is powerful explosive emotional bitteragonizingprovocativeand thought provokingwhat can you ask for all in a single booknot to forget it’s an unusual treat for vocabulary freaksit surely will strike a few raw nerves for readers as it did for meIntelligence is not an unrecognized virtue it is much a hated vice The book starts with a letter written by Vikrant Vaidya waiting to be hanged to the President of India The letter in all ways is blunt engaging sarcastic challenging and bold; and I must confess the most entertainingthough his language seems like a sarcastic outburst there is lot which makes senseresultrest of the storyMost troubles with our world are caused by people suffering from mega reform obsession They destroy the existing societies The worst irony is they do this in the name of a better worldNothing inflames present better than pastthe book covers a host of subjects’ right from history politics cricket religion art journalism Bollywood media and above all true friendship Sometimes there is too much on your plate that it gets difficult to handle all this heavy duty stuff or to put in author’s words “highbrow stuff” but its worth it the content might be offensive to some and some might disagree with lot of aspects as everyone is entitled to have an opinion But let’s look at the bigger pictureWhat appealed the most to me was the second part of the bookthe bond of friendship between “The Batch”all for one and one for all each discovering their passions in life and pursuing themand ready to give them up in a blink of an eye for the values they believed in and for the friends whom they love so dearlyAll in all definitely a must read

    I had agreed to accept a copy of this book because the blurb looked uite interesting to me It promised to cover a lot of topics which are uite controversial sensational for the people of our country The book started on an interesting note for me The promise of a murder mystery thriller made me uite excited for the ride ahead of me and to a great extent I was satisfied tooThe highlight of the book for me was the fact that though the author has encompassed a huge number of topics to build in his plot nowhere did he sound preachy about his thoughts and opinions What he did was provide an insight into the things that has happened over the past few decades and make us thinkRead full review here

    Autobiography of a Mad Nation is about India about us about the forest of our shared minds that’s a mishmash of intellectual shallowness gargantuan brilliance backslapping mediocrityFreewheeling through a non linear narrative that’s addictive comic and dark at the same time strangely tangible in its sensibility too Sriram has created characters so real that you can almost hear them chat up and near laughing jabbing at one another altering what they do or think as students first and professionals laterThe neglect the divide and the aloofness that being an Indian brings this book deserves to be read by everyone who believes India will be the center of the world soonMore here
