I read this book for the first time in 10th grade and absolutely loved it. Later I re-read it again and loved it even more. I have been searching for a english version of this book and hope to find it one fine day. This is an amazing piece of literature and one of the funniest novels I have ever read.

బహుశా తెలుగులో "కనయాశులకం" తరువాత నాకు నచచిన పుసతకం "బారిషటర పారవతీశం". మూడు భాగాలను ఒకే పుసతకంలో (రంగుల చితరాలతో)2011 లో పరచురించటం జరిగింది. మొదటి భాగంలో పారవతీశం గురించి అతను ఇంగలాండ కు పరయాణానికి సిదధ మవటం వరకు రాయటం జరిగింది. రెండవ భాగంలో ఇంగలాడ విషయాలు అకకడి చదువు గురించి, యుదధ వాతావరణం పారవతీశం తిరిగి సవదేశానికి పరయాణం కావడం గురించి పరసతావిసతుంది. మూడవ భాగం అతని సొంత వూరిలో అతనికి లభించే పరధానయత అతని వివాహం మరియు వకాలతా, కోరటు వయవహారాలు మరియు సవతంతర ఉదయమంలో పాలగోవటం గురించి ఉంది. మూడు భాగ ...more

As many others mentioned, I read this book first when I was in my 10th standard in school. That was an awesome experience then. later I bought this book recently again and read it. This time all the three parts were included in this new printed version. I felt mesmerized reading this book all over again after 11 years.
One may get bored in the later parts, but this is the best for the times this book is printed and for the following it has acquired through Radio and Weeklies. The pace of the book

Really this book is amazing.I have read this book of 1st part in my tenth standard and recently I had read other 2 parts. The 1st part was humorous and 2nd and 3rd were not that much humorous but not boring and we can read once. The second and third parts contains about his studies in ENGLAND and his practice as a lawyer and freedom movement in our country.

This was the first Novel i read as far as i remember and though it is nearly 100 years old, the simple humour/comedy of the book is what i still cherish. I do read this book very often in bits and pieces what ever i feel like reading again and again. The story is set in early 20th century wherein A brahmin boy born in an Arthodox family ventures in to doing Barrister in UK and the situations and people which he encountered while travelling to UK and his studies at Britain and his life after retu ...more

I read this novel some two or three years back. it is a good novel depicting the life and lives of the Telugu people who had to go to England either for studies or for profession. My only amazement of this novel is why this novel has been labelled as a COMEDY Novel. There is little comedy except the stark reality of life.

I came across this book during my 10th standard. This book was a part of 10th academic syllabus then. In our syllabus they have included only the part where Parvateesam travels from India to England, I was eager to know how did he survive in England and how did he become "Barrister" Parvateesam. This one is quite a page turner. The author has built the character of Parvateesam very well. The character, Parvateesam, makes us laugh at his silliness, pity his naveity..! Quite an entertainer..!

This book is really an eye opener for me. I knew that our ancestors faced difficulties but this book told me about those difficulties clearly. I was also amused by the fact that our currency has a lot more value than it has now. Parvateesam just spent 10k rupees for his trip to england in 3 yrs. I spend 10k when I want to have a round trip from my college to my home. I really enjoyed reading this book.

The author is so full of humour, he makes you laugh at the silliest things. The protagonist is an innocent and sometimes almost stupid teen who sets out to London from a small village in India to pursue law as his career. It portrays, also, snapshots of social and cultural aspects and taboos in India before independence. If you can read Telugu then start immediately and appreciate the rib tickling sarcasm. Hats off to the author!

A good one... Comedy, innocence, intelligence
Sometimes we see ourselves doing things in the books it is just amazing how the writer depicts typical life style of a common man globalising himself
During my first assignment abroad I felt many things reflecting from the book.
