Book Review: The Windfall

This comedy/satire on manners and etiquette amongst the newly rich & bougie class of New Delhi India was reminiscent of ‘The Jeffersons’ with the dry humor of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’.

Author Diksha Basu has a keen eye for the juxtapositions that abound in modern Indian society at the moment; is a wry and witty satire that had been laughing aloud several times.

I can easily see this being made into a movie!

With a fabulous Bollywood soundtrack, naturally. Smile.
