"A sweeper discovers a cache of black money and escapes to see the Taj Mahal with his underage mistress; an untouchable races to reclaim his life stolen by an upper-caste identity thief; slum baby's head gets bigger and bigger as he gets smarter and smarter, while his family tries to find a cure. One of India's most original and audacious writers, Uday Prakash, weaves three stinging and comic tales of living and surviving in today's globalized India. In his stories, Prakash portrays realities about caste and class with an authenticity rarely seen in English-language fiction about South Asia. Told in compelling, vivid and thoroughly modern voice, sharply political but free of heavy handedness, these stories leave an imprint on the mind and heart long after the final page is turned"--

"The stories in this collection should be read not only because they are coming from an extremely important voice in Hindi literature, but also because they are not just stories but a profound mapping of our times' civilisational crisIs resulting from the blend of an awfully oppressive social order and brutal imperialism."-"The New Indian Express"
"Three...stingingly comic tales with an] appealing mix of social realism and pungent sarcasm. Uday Prakash uses a kind of wry documentary style, combining incisive humour with gentle pathos, interspersed with occasional poetic passages, creating a new kind of narrative style that has been well caught by the translator." -"Frontline" (India)
