    1. Shrilal Shukla s masterpiece Raag Darbari is a representative novel of the rapidly changing or degrading values ethos in India s rural heartland post independence Ranganath, a research scholar looking for some recuperation and tired of banalities in urban life, arrives in a village called Shivpalganz Once there, he comes across Vaidyaji, a distant relation the village tout Vaidyaji literally rules over the village, with two of his sons acting as his henchmen most of his cronies occupying importa [...]

    3. If i were marooned on a god forsaken island with just one book, this is the one i d wish to have Hilarious, sarcastic and intense, it has the same charm even if you read it for the n th time The modern day shining India, depicted through a village in a most natural manner make it one of the best satires you ll ever come across The book is full of conversations reading which you d be compelled to pause for a while and have a laugh A must read.



    4. Set in rural India post independence, the focus is on the political agitations in the village society.Every couple of pages have that sarcastic punch on the government and system, which will have you rolling And the fun actually sad part is all of the sarcastic pokes still holds true after 50 years when it was first published.Easy flowing Hindi topped with some Avadhi dialect conversations making it humorous throughout.I love books which have intelligent chapter titles This one is devoid of chap [...]




    5. Raag Darbari is a lesson in cynicism It is a heavy satire on the so called intellectuals of modern India and although the book was written in 68, it remains relevant and contemporary till date.Read it for stark dark humor.



    6. One of the best books i have ever read Awesome satire and comical book Everyone who is interested in knowing how our great country actually runs must read it.



    7. It takes great skill to pull off satire in the midst of corruption and decadence Rag Darbari manages to do just that and the medium of Hindi is one of the main reason behind that achievement.Set in the small fiction town of Shivpalganj, the novel moves through different aspects of corruption, gullibility and bullheadedness found in the rural folks Shukla comically highlights the bureaucratic sclerosis in the provincial establishment and the emergence of local satraps in small towns who oscillate [...]



    8. Indian democratic moment was of huge celebration in theory a largely poor and unlettered society marching on a leap of faith by introducing universal adult franchise And after 70 years it will not be an exaggeration to say that India has built itself robust democratic institutions But is this success only a superficial one hiding beneath a depressing story That is the question Raag Darbari explores and in what ruthless, take no prisoners style Rangnath, an educated youth, with grand idealism in [...]


    9. My way of joking is to tell the truth It s the funniest joke in the world said G.B Shaw And this book does a complete justice to what he said Different from fiction that talks about allusions and hints, I like the way facts or reality is a common place in this book however shitty it might be This makes it humorous Shukla captures those moments in any setting, that no one talks about, and mentions it with negligible verbiage and or floweriness He can be compared to the comedian who would never la [...]


    10. Raag Darbari is a novel so cynical and brutally realistic in its outlook that any other work of fiction appears as an ideological dream sequence It is one of the saddest tale ever told the story of India after independence No, not the partition, but the story of its moral, social, political and intellectual corruption True to reality, all the people who are even marginally honest and fighting for justice are thoroughly lampooned in the novel by other characters The novel is drawn across a fictio [...]


    11. Outstanding.Brilliant.Haven t read a better satire.Not a single line of the novel could be skipped.Each sentence is filled with wit and aphorism Humour is so subtle and finely woven in the fabric of the story that you keep chuckling to yourself throughout while marvelling at the imagination of the author First paragraph of the book describing a truck parked by the roadside sets the tone of the novel.Thereafter, it s a hilarious journey through the rural landscape of Shivpalganj where Ganjhas eng [...]


    12. A must read book for Hindi readers who like politics , , , , , , , , 50 1968 Anyone who has spent one s childhood youth in any village, will find oneself in this novel.


    13. Highly nuanced even though the style is a classic satire Witty one liners and references to leaders like Nehru, Panth like they were just their to be read in the newspapers or to be heard on the radio can cover the book in sepia Leaves the taste of raw mango pickle that most of us sourced from our dear Grandparents tinged with their wisdom and humor Part social commentary and part piece of literature this is a book rolled many things into one.Glad I picked this one.


    14. A huge number of people consider Raag Darbari to be the funniest book they have read This book has given me chuckles than any other work of literature or movie Srilal Shukla was a bureaucrat, and this book is a product of his life experiences as well as many stories he exchanged with his colleagues He managed to put it together in an amazing narrative, which is funny, satirical, without sounding facetious or bitter.





    15. when I started reading this book, I thought that the writer was cynical about village society that s why there were such Harsh satires but slowly after continuing the book I realise that the writer tries to bring the reality rather than romanticising about living in villages of India it is an unusual novel where you will see reality and its bare truth it is not a story about any person or place but a collective understanding of writer about failure of executing the plans at ground level and the [...]


    16. 1 , 2 3 4 5 6 7 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Summary It s the story about Shivpalganj, any generic village in rural India The problems like corruption in cooperative, no education in schools and colleges, obscene politics played by strong players of Shivpalganj and the weak resorting to sycophancy constitute the central plot of story Socially abhorred things like inter cast marriages, low cast assuming high post, heaps of untidiness, red spits of Paan on all public w [...]


    17. This book almost felled me And induced an annoying ass reading slump It only took me three months to finish this tale of venal power broking Like someone told me, the aroma of North India envelops you as you read this book A little too strong, this aroma, for me In large part, this flavor was imparted by the nature of the English translation, which reminds me of something Ken Liu said about his translation of Cixin Liu s Three Body Problem The English words are arranged in such a way that the re [...]


    18. One of the landmark novels of Hindi literature, Raag Darbari by Shrilal Shukl, is a must read for lovers of Hindi fiction Published in 1968, it is a sarcastic take on the Indian societal and political system Quite interestingly, the narrative of this timeless classic still holds good in the current scenario.


    19. The book makes you self introspect and realize your helplessness in the context of the way things work in India As the Author has himself quoted an old review of the book in the preface Apathit rah jani his iski niyati hai A must read for every Indian, who can read Hindi.P.S If you like the The White Tiger by Mr Arvind Adiga, you are definitely gonna love this book.


    20. This is a masterpiece of hindi satire ShuklaJi has seen government functioning and rural life from very close and is able to stitch them together in most satirical way in brilliant Hindi However, it felt a bit repetitive and longish.
