DEMOCRAZY – a gentle dose of crass capitalism and misadventures of godmen
Author Atulya Mahajan with Stanup Comedian Neeti Palta during release of his book DEMOCRAZY at India International Centre, New DelhiJaico Publishing House released a book titled Democrazy by author Atulya Mahajan at New Delhi recently. The book was released by well known stand-up comedian Neeti Palta. Democrazy is a satirical look at the madness and brouhaha in present-day India, where nothing is what it seems to be, power is all-important, and everything people do is to win the race to power. Gul Panag, who has recently been through the election grind, has written the foreword to it. During the launch Neeti Palta said, this is one of the best books I came across where with fictional characters Atulya has tried to portray the reality in a satirical way. It was an impactful fun read.
“This book is a wild spoof on the ways of the land. Of course none of the crazy cast of characters was inspired by real people who spend their days planning conspiracies, running the government into the ground or shouting at news panelists. I can’t wait to see protest rallies against the book at Jantar Mantar,” said Atulya Mahajan. Insisting this book being a complete fiction, Atulya added that no politician or a real person were hurt in the writing of this book, thus it was named Democrazy.
