The worst kind of loneliness you feel is the one you feel in a crowd says an author. I have very often gone back to thinking about this line at various occasions finding it to be true when my thoughts are well and truly dislocated from my physical self. All around you is a buzzing mass of humanity which is conversing,laughing, loving and hating and you feel an outsider to all this. The mind wanders through long corridors where light plays with shadows and your eyes strain to catch a familiar mo ...more

"പുതിയ ഒരു സംസകാരം വളരുകയാണ-
ആൾകകൂടടതതിനറെ സംസകാരം;
ചുററിലും ഒഴുകുനന ജീവിതം"


ആധുനികത എനന ജീവിതബോധയം മനുഷയജീവിതതതിലുണടാകകിയ വിഹവലതകൾ. ആശങകകൾ.
പുതിയതെനന പറയപപെടുനന, പരിചയപപെടുനതോറും അപരിചിതമായിതതീരുനന ഒരു ജീവിതകരമതതിലെ അസവാസഥയങങൾ.
ആകുലതകൾ.

ജോസഫ, സുനിൽ, ലളിത, രാധ, സുനദർ, പരേം - വരണടുണങങിയ കുറേ ജീവിതങങൾ.
ഇലലായമകളോടും, അവനവനറെ അസതിതവതതോടു തനനെയുമുളള കലാപം.
സവാതനതയാനനതരം ബോംബെ നഗരതതിലെ ആൾകകൂടടജീവിതങങളെ വരചചിടുകയാണ ആനനദ.

ഒരുപകഷെ, ആധുനികതയുടെ സങകർഷങങളെ ഏററവും സൂകഷമമായി അടയാളപപെടുതതുനന മലയാളനോവൽ.

One of the best books I've ever read.I remember reading it when I was 13 and how the 13 year old me found it boring in the beginning but since it was the only book I have loaned from the library I decided to stick up with it & I'm glad I did.

The novel analyses the miseries of young people living in one of the most populated city of India,Mumbai,surrounded by a group of autocrats.These young people have to crush their dreams inorder to support their family.In between all their troubles they f

Bombay – the city that never sleeps, the city where thousands of men still come in search of their dreams. I first fell in love with this city from the words of someone whom I loved. For him, this city was everything . I used to wonder how just a city, not even hometown, can evoke such emotions in a person. I realized it when I first stepped out of the train in Kurla station all alone in the midst of buzzing autowalas and coolie. There I learned how it feels like to be truly free and gained conf ...more

The book offered a despotic glimpse of life at Mumbai of a hand- view..but more than that through them, Anand offered a more deeper insight of life general; of perspectives' - individual and of a crowd evolving and disintegrating.
With no dramatic overturn of events or thrilling adventures to tone up the pages, in seemingly dull but totally honest narrative Anand takes you through the life of not one but maby similar unfortunate millions..profoundly honest and sad in it's caricature!!
