ABOUT THIS BOOK

The Sardar joke has an unmatched originality, verve and versatility, not to mention a wild balle-balle undercurrent. Capturing all the affection and abandon that accompanies its best renditions, funny but not tawdry, an ode not a slur, this eclectic collection introduces readers to a hitherto unexplored dimension of sardar humour. Through the rustic foibles of Banta and his friends, we are gently reminded that the joke really is on us and all our pretensions.
