A short and realistic novel. This book describes a small part of author's life and all the characters are his family members. He didn't try to insert plastic situations or dialogues in this book.. Simple languages with natural slang and his narration of the story as himself makes the story more natural and alive.

Humor is invisibly tied with almost all dialogues in the book. I really like the simplicity of the book. The book really worth 5 stars..

യഥാര്‍ത്യങ്ങളിലും നര്‍മം തുളുംബുന്ന ആഖ്യാന ശൈലി. ബഷീറിന് മാത്രം അവകാശപ്പെടാവുന്ന രചനാ വൈഭവം .

Are you a Basheerian(forgive me for the coinage) or not is a question that often hears in the literary circles in Kerala. I would say he is a good writer with a good power over the medium and could communicate what he wants well. There is no need to make him an icon, he is already achieved that position. The book was part of the syllabus in SCERT, so everyone will be familiar with it. Good work indeed.

Ramshi Reloaded
the first novel which made me laugh alot. With his normal native slang and Genuine comedies and Impossible narration, this has been historical one in literature field itself. Thr novel was his own real life and the characters are the real members of his family, including a goat, Hens, Jackfruits etc. !! No plastic situations and humours... I love all the Basheerian novels and stories
I loved this book because it gave me a glimpse of how life was like for a poor muslim family (women mainly) in the time period around india's independence. About how clever women have to be to provide for their own.

Set in Northern Kerala, India.

Read when it came in my Malayalam subject for 10th class, each class burst out laugh and enjoyed the story. It made everyone dull whwn the story ended up. I wished if the story never ends..Its a real great work by basheer.
