Overview: Amreekandesi: Masters of America

About the Book:

Amreekandesi: Masters of America is a witty and satirical story of two young Indian students in US trying to find their versions of the legendary American dream, in the land of opportunity. The first guy is Akhil Arora, a young, nerdy engineer in Delhi who just wants to get away from home and one and for all prove to his folks that he has the ability to be on his own.

Meanwhile in a rural town in Punjab, is the other guy, Jaspreet Singh, also known as Jassi, who is busy dreaming, of a way of life straight out of American Pie movie series. As fate would have it, they end up as roommates in Florida. Just like family, you can't choose your roommates. The two boys are the two extremes in their viewpoints and expectations of America. While Akhil is very patriotic, an Indian at heart and wants to return to India in a period of few years, Jassi though looks at his Indian identity as an uncomfortable burden and dreams of finding an American girl along with whom he can live his life happily ever after.

Filled with funny anecdotes and witty observations, Amreekandesi gives you an exemplary immigrant experience, emphasizing the tug of war between cultures, the protagonist's search for identity, and the capacity to survive in a foreign land.

A lot of authors have written about the big American Dream. But Mahajan, who goes by the nom de plume 'Amreekandesi', attractively captures the moments of self doubt, disconcertment in embracing an Indian identity in post 911 America and the pleasure of being young in a land where youth is freed from familial pressures.Peculiar anecdotes, easy laughs and an easy pace are the reasons you never keep the book down.

About the Author:

Atulya Mahajan is the writer of, a famous Indian satire blog. He was Born and raised in Delhi and moved to the United States Of America in 2004 for his Post graduation degree and stayed there for five years, but in a Swades-inspired moment he returned to India. During the time he spent in the US, he created a blog to chronicle the lives of Indians living overseas, and this book is the conclusion of that idea. He also writes sporadic humour columns for the famous newspaper Times of India, Crest Edition.

From the time he returned to India, Atulya has spent hundreds of hours shouting at random cab drivers and bikers who overtake from the wrong side. If you want to see him transform into the Hulk, just sound the horn at him at a red signal. When not busy writing hilarious sections, Atulya works as a technologist at an investment bank. He claims to be the first human ever to have 24-pack abs, and has supposedly tried about 485 tonics to stop hairfall, though none of them appear to have worked.

  1.  Entertaining read 2 June, 2013 On
    Amreekandesi manages to bring back days you have spent in the US. If you haven't been able to then you know how exactly it feels out there esp. for Indian students. One of those books which are not easy to put down once you have started if you like humor as a genre. Now waiting for this to become a movie (which I certainly feel it will).
