Overview: Never Mind Yaar

The coming of age of three young girls from different backgrounds in Mumbai, a city fraught with communal tensions. ? When long time friends Binaifer and Louella meet Shalini Dayal at Gyan Shakti College, Gyan for knowledge and Shakti for strength, a true friendship that transcends cultural and religious backgrounds is born. Louella is a Christian and Binaifer, a Parsi. Shalini is from a traditional Hindu family. Brought up to believe her parents and autocratic grandma will choose her life partner for her, she is torn between her love for a young student and the safety of tradition. But she has two unlikely cupids to contend with. Binaifer (Binny) and Louella (Lou) think Bhagu, the young student, is perfect for Shali. The girls go through four years of college together, facing many challenges on the one hand but also the comfort and reassurance on the other, of growing up in the cultural, political and bewildering mosaic that is Mumbai. When a series of synchronized bombs and the communal violence in the aftermath leave them feeling badly shaken, Dr. Naakwa, the astute college principal, offers words of wisdom and healing. Why do the three friends decide the blame for the carnage lies squarely with secular Indians? ? ? The author admits there's a message - that of the curse of communalism (or racism). But first, the book is about the light hearted years of college and true friendship between the girls. This is how it all begins: Dr. Naakwaa of Gyan Shakti College couldn't help smiling to himself as he looked at the sea of eager, animated young faces. They all seemed to speak at once, or so it seemed to an old man like himself, their ceaseless chatter outdone only by sudden bursts of loud laughter. Even as they talked and laughed in their own groups, he saw their eyes covertly watching the others. An air of breathless expectancy hung about them, as if something momentous would sweep them up on a wing and fly them away to an unknown destination. Without exception,

  1.  Slow, Average Read 22 September, 2013 On
    They say one should not judge a book by its cover. But they also say first impression is a lasting one. “Never Mind Yaar” is on the disappointing side when it comes to the look and print. A lack of justice with the cover design and also with the dull, tiny font is pretty evident.

    When I started with the story, one aspect that totally pleased me was the narration of circumstances and locations. Mathur’s account is delightfully detailed and verbose. It builds a very clear picture in the eye of your mind as you read. An absolute beginner can find the vocabulary a little testing, but one can always have a dictionary as an aid.

    Albeit all the wonderful description, the plot is very slow. Dialogues are droning and repetitive and make the characters seem younger than their age. It takes some efforts to persist beyond the first forty pages. Almost all the characters lack substance. Bhagu is an exception, though. He has come out really well. Also, worth commending is that piece of dialogue in the debate. Point well made by the author.

    The story looks more like a light-hearted Bollywood college romance. However, the writing style makes it appear a little developed. I felt Mathur could have done more justice with Louella, Binaifer and the trio’s friendship. The college life could have been shown in a little more detail and momentous way. Also, in my opinion, Mathur lacked in justification of the title. Blurb says that the title is an attitude; however, it is not demonstrated in the plot in fair amounts.

    Mathur has given a nice end to the plot that leaves you with a goody feel. It will give you an insight into the thought process of youth belonging to varied ethnic backgrounds. Overall, this teen literature is a very slow and average read.
