In this collection of over fifty anecdotes, well-known humour writer C. P. Belliappa showcases, with his trademark wit, warmth and wisdom, the funny side of life. These slice-of-life stories, drawn from his personal experiences, cover topics such as the ‘wonder years’ that is childhood and hilarious cultural bloopers, and are replete with pithy observations on everyday situations. From embarrassing diplomatic gaffes committed by State dignitaries to the author’s language misadventures in Paris and China, from ‘It Happens Only in India’ to other rip-roaring social blunders, this book has it all.
Sit back and enjoy the eloquent wit and sublime humour contained in Tongue of the Slip—this is Indian satire at its best.
