First fiction of 2018...
Enjoyed reading it.

The first page of the novel starts at a coffee shop set up in bangalore .... So, half way through.... I too,needed some south Indian filter coffee.

“It’s true what they say – it’s not we who control money, it’s the money that controls us. When there’s only a little, it behaves meekly: when it grows it becomes brash and has its way with us.” - Vivek Shanbhag in Ghachar Ghochar, a racy yet engaging read.
What caught my attention were the simple details of the author, the matriarchal characters, the personality of the ants, and similar such gripping scenes. Set in Bengaluru, Shanbhag has also brought out the local flavours in more than one ways.
@bringbooksback thanks for being the inspiration that you're!

We are already through half of September and my reading journey is going great till now✌. I have finished reading three books and have already decided which one will be my next read, no confusion which book to pick next this time😉(told u September is treating me great)...


Coming to the book with such a simple yet attractive cover, 'Ghachar Ghochar' by Vivek Shanbhag is a story/ journey of a family from economic status of a low middle class to wealthy, their upgradation from a small house to big bungalow and hence from integrated relations and family to disintegrated one. This book reflects how money plays as a catalyst to bring happiness, luxury, comfort and finally friction and discord to a closely knit family. Although this book is originally written in Kannada but people like me who can't read or understand Kannada can undoubtedly thank 'Srinath Perur' for translating this gem of the regional literature so skillfully that it didn't loose its essence and soul. This book is a powerful masterpiece and a must read.

One of the finest books I have read by an Indian author.. This book is truly a gem, you simply cannot put this one into one genre.. it's so much in the details and also nothing overall.. and then the ending hits you so hard.. #mustread #ghacharghochar #vivekshanbhag #bookstagram #booklover #avidreader #bookworm #thatsjustcoffee #readingmakesmehappy 😊

Current read 📖☀️

It was not easy coming out of a book hangover (not fully out of it yet...), but a good short novel never fails to bring back my ardour to read. This is my current read; I was going to wait for September to start but my hands were itchy to hold a book so, I chose Ghachar Ghochar by Vivek Shanbhag to wrap the month 📚 I've read so many good reviews on this and I'm so excited that I finally have the mood to pick this up! 😊

Sie kicherte. »Ghachar ghochar.« Ich hatte diesen Ausdruck noch nie gehört. »Was heißt das?«, fragte ich. »Ghachar ghochar.«, wiederholte sie und ihre Augen leuchteten dabei. »Was soll das bedeuten?« (Aus: Vivek Shanbhag - Ghachar Ghochar) -- Mehr zum Buch unter http://www.aufbau-verlag.de/ghachar-ghochar.html
Am 13. September findet die Buchpremiere statt: Der indische Autor Vivek Shanbhag liest im Rahmen von LITERATUREN DER WELT beim Internationalen Literaturfestival Berlin aus seinem Roman. Mehr Informationen zur Veranstaltung: http://tiny.cc/bp_ghacharghochar

The cinema of a writer is language so rich it can't help but crawl off the page.

A tough day for the body calls for easy happy reads. And easy binge too 😋
This was fun.

Well done! #ghacharghochar

What we’re reading: Ghachar Ghochar: entangled beyond repair by Vivek Shanbhag. Described as a ‘classic tale of wealth and moral ruin’, this satire packs a serious punch in the space of 118 pages. Also goes nicely with a spot of Prosecco. ..

Oggi una delle semistroncature dell'anno. Semi perché questo romanzo ha due pregi: è breve ed è ambientato in India (che è poi il motivo per cui avevo cominciato a leggerlo). È la storia di una modesta famiglia di Bangalore che fa fortuna e che tira su un primogenito inetto e immaturo.
Proprio lui ci racconta della sua esistenza fatta di tentativi di colmare il tempo libero e al contempo mantenere un contegno con la moglie, che non approverebbe le sue mattinate trascorse alla sala da tè a leggere il giornale. Le vicende narrate purtroppo non sviluppano le premesse e rimangono un po' insipida, a mio parere.
Non mi sento di consigliarlo ma vorrei sapere da qualcuno che l'ha letto cosa ne pensa.

*Book review*
🌼
"Words, after all, are nothing by themselves. They burst into meaning only in the minds they've entered."
-Vivek Shanbhag, Ghachar Ghochar
🌼
A story of a close-knit family which goes from living in a cramped, small house to being the owner of a large house in a posh area of Bangalore, all because of a member of the family, turning his spice business into a fortune.
The story unfolds how when money comes along, the family dynamic changes, how the definition of love and support in a joint family transforms and how 'Ghachar Ghochar' things go once an average middle-class family, turns rich almost overnight.
🌼
Originally written by Vivek Shanbhag in Kannada and translated in English by Srinath Perur, this psychological drama is so well written that even though the work is translated you can't help but marvel at the beauty of the words. The various analogies that are drawn while describing the story of a dysfunctional family, are quite enthralling. The fast pace with which the story unfolds, the warmth and humor found in some parts of the book, all the while maintaining an undertone of suspense, just keeps you wanting for more.
🌼
Read if you want to how things can go so "Ghachar Gochar" - a nonsense phrase that means something tangled beyond repair.
A 120 page read that is sure to blow your mind by the end.
