Writing humour is not easy, but in these bleak times, these two award-winning mavericks, Ramendra Kumar and Santosh Bakaya, whose oeuvres stretch across multiple genres, have given us much to laugh about. The vignettes in the book, are sure to tickle the funny bone of the reader, and even make those supposedly born without it, realize that actually, they had these missing bones all along, but they had not been tickled enough.

Their words can make Mephistophelean frowns vanish, sinister scowls scurry to safer zones, and gloomy countenances break into gargantuan guffaws. These two Mad Hatters have unabashedly unleashed a torrent of laughs on an unsuspecting public. Be it a roaring lion suddenly mutating into a bleating lamb or the follically challenged man gnashing his teeth at the sight of one with a thick mop of shining, black hair; or the VIP in a ludicrous hurry to answer a very important call or the lady with a compulsive spending disorder, who manages to clinch a deal after 18 minutes of negotiation, during an African Safari in East Africa — the book bubbles over with incisive wit, tongue-in-cheek humour, and satirical punches. Once the laughter riot is over, the tremors of the laughs will linger on, making the reader crave for more.

If you find the reading fraternity suddenly mutating into perenially grinning Cheshire Cats, you know who the culprits are!

'Book Review: Mélange of Mavericks and Mutants by Feby Joseph'
The book is simply called “Mélange of Mavericks and Mutants” and from the cover one can deduce that the contents are of the ha-ha variety. Beautifully divided into two halves one for the anecdotes of Ramendra Kumar and the other for the accident…, I mean anecdotes of Santosh Bakaya, this book, while no PG Wodehouse, is nevertheless very funny.
