Exceptionally well written.Thoroughly enjoyed every single page. Mr Mittra puts down the story of an unassuming bureaucrat facing the music of the administrative machinery and personal turmoil.The analogies are superbly funny and witty. The novel reads well though the narration at times (very few) borders pomposity. Overall a refreshing read!
I couldn't finish it; and I have an obsession to finish something that I have started. But this book was impossible to carry on with. I tried twice at a gap of years, but I felt stupid wasting my time.
Maybe because I've heard these things many times or maybe because I'm biased against books written by bureaucrats I didn't like the bookI could not go beyond the first hundred pages or soWouldn't recommend at all
