Servants of India

E neighbour's servant who is besotted with her; and Ramaswami a trusted retainer who reappears mysteriously much to the consternation of his employer long after he has been presumed drowned Marked by Laxman's trademark wit and including pencil sketches drawn especially for this edition Servants of India is a delightful read Cover and inside illustrations by RK Laxma. Going by the title anyone accustomed to R K Laxman would assume this to be a book on the esteemed politicians of our country but it is not so This book is basically about the most important person in the Indian household the servant something that is even unheard of in our western counterparts of similar social status For Indians the servant of the house is of utmost importance for the plethora of activities they perform at lower rates which constantly seem to rise and the topic is worrisome as well due to their unpredictability inefficiency or sheer unavailability And our dear Mr Laxman tries to write by hand a picture of the helping handIn a single sentence it is a nice little book So this review is going to be a short and a crisp one The first two stories were amusing enough A crook handyman and another cook who emerge as a priest and motivational speaker after taking a well informed leave respectively The following stories are ordinary incidents narrated with Laxman s signature satire and sense of humour They do give you his perspective and Indian people s outlook of the servant condition of India but I would especially mention not spoil two of his servant stories which I actually loved very muchFor the next part of this so detailed review please visit only if you have a bit patience than usualHappy reading
