Written by the well known man of humour, Cyrus Broacha, this book, is a satirical point of view by Cyrus on his own brethren-the Average Indian man. It touches upon the typical traits displayed by this man as in being a mama's boy, mismatched sense of fashion, one who holds another man's hand while walking etc.
The language is fluid and is laced with Cyrus's brand of tongue-in-cheek humor, popular phrases and all the observations which we keep making in our daily lives. The objective is not to give a philosophical study of the Indian male psyche but accept it with all its quirks, oddities and masala. You will smile, smirk, laugh out loud, secretly connect the dots, point out the similarities between what you read and someone you know from your own life.
The book is divided into two parts. The first part is like an agony aunt column-generalized questions are asked by fictitious men and women and Broacha answers them. The second half discusses the psychology of Indian men, answering questions like why they are never on time and why they avoid walking on pavements.
Divided into two parts, for making the reading more logical, the first half contains a letter and response format where men and women ask questions that maybe what we think of ourselves too. The second part has Cyrus's own thoughts, perspectives and astute observations. There are jibes, and common references to men losing temper over nothing, the family friend angle, the friendly bhajiwala, etc. Designed to take you back to your own musings, this book aims to provide a slice of life across the typical male persona prevalent in all the four regions of the country.
