    1. The book was supposed to be about the Indians of the liberalised economy. But it turns out to be an autobiography through which we are to see the Liberalised Indians. Yes, it does give us a perspective of how our lives have changed. Coming from a middle class family similar to the author's I could relive many moments of my childhood when the author narrates the story. But the title is certainly misleading. But the writing style and the fun that you derive while reading the book certainly makes u [...]


    2. I misunderstood the premise of the book. I took it to be a personal history of the liberalisation of Indian economy by Narsimha Rao in 1991; A bit like Gurcharan Das's India unbound which mixed the story of Indian economy with personal experiences.This one is purely an autobiography except for d first couple of chapters. Liked d first half bcoz it was set in Kolkatta, the second half set in Delhi/Mumbai was a little stale. The writing is lucid and the author seems quite frank too.


    3. For anyone growing up in a middle class family in kolkata and later experience a taste of delhi and mumbai, this book is going down memory lane which will make you relive your childhood once again. the author's vivid description growing up as a kid and the way he has captured the daily nuances of our lives will make you emotional in case you have experienced it before
