Excuse Me Can We Have our Country Back?

What an apt title for a book which deals with every Indian’s wish to have a better India? Every day, an average Indian struggles against the ills of corruption, poor governance, pollution, a dysfunctional educational system and more, leaving them betrayed, helpless and abandoned.
With tongue-in-cheek cartoons, illustrations prose and poetry, this book highlights the problems of aam aadmi. Sometimes humorous, sometimes satire – the book gives us the author’s take on the present and his vision of the future.
Readers would definitely agree and smile at some of the cartoons, which reflect the state of our country. In the time when general elections are fast approaching, the book seems to be well-timed.
