Brindaavan Express is a collection of narratives from a simpler time. Based largely in South India in the seventies and eighties, the book chronicles the life of the author across a forty year period, from his earliest days as a school-boy in Madras to his thoughts as a grandfather reflecting on modern society. Written in simple prose, in a style reminiscent of R.K.Narayan or P.G.Wodehouse, Brindaavan Express is the kind of book you will find yourself reaching for when you’re packing your backpack for an overnight journey, or when you are curling up for a lazy afternoon on the couch.
