Many times there are very simple moments that I witness and I feel like putting my experience in words but I stop myself thinking that what will I say about it that has not been said before How will I differentiate my description from thousands of others And in this respect I admire writers for their ingenuity They describe omnipresent emotions like love hatred jealousyetc everyday events like sunrise going to the market etc and make each experience their own Anees Salim is fabulous in the way he makes you a part of Vanity Bagh which is a make believe colony from which he hails His description of the streets the trees the lanes smells everything is so befitting that my dreams are actually taking place in the lanes of Vanity Bagh And his comic sense is superb In no book that I have read before was I able to laugh at so many places His comedy comes from the simple ways in which he describes the idiosyncrasies of the beautifully etched charactersIf you read this book it won t leave you And I won t be surprised if you find yourself as much a permanent fixture of Vanity Bagh as I do

By Anees Salim Grade AIt is not easy to write a book that represents a religion which has innumerable followers all over the world is a beautiful faith and is also infamous for the various terrorism attacksIt is difficult to set the plot of your story amidst the growing Islamic culture in India in order to capture the essence of a faith which is on par with all other religions in the world and yet stay objectiveIt is a hard task to write a novel set in a culture one belongs to where one s identity is suspect on the basis of one s religion and yet deliver the goods without falling prey to the influence of Islamic fundamentalismBut the author of the novel Anees Salim is successful in portraying ordinary lives of Muslim people without resorting to any sensationalism He comes out with a story that portrays the life of a group of young Muslim boys living in a mohalla called Vanity Bagh who are inspired by the legend of Abu Hathim an aging don of Vanity Bagh or Little Pakistan as it is referred toThe protagonist is Imran Jabbari who is part of a gang called 5 Men comprising of young friends whose only goal in life is to appear to be powerful like dons while leading ordinary lives like in any household irrespective of faith or statusThe story moves slowly helping the reader to sink his teeth into the plot chewing the elements that make this novel a simple and abstract one simultaneously The author s wit is splendid and pops up when least expected Here is an exampleextract Yahya another one of us with a popular Pakistan name as you can see was born dumb But he was not dumb dumb he was smart dumb When the Almighty pressed the mute button on him at the assembly line He gave Yahya something exceptional in damages and rolled him out into the noisy world with a set of remarkably big ears that heard things that no one else did ants marching across asbestos roofs beetles sneezingand even the sueal of the public lavatory door as the ghost of Iskander a young man who died from having too much of fake cocaine went in to pee The novel centers around the life of Imran Jabbari who like any other young chap has dreams of his own albeit a wee bit difficult to accomplish because of various constraints of everyday life So what is it that makes this novel different Well the gang of 5 Men are unexpectedly caught in a terrorist attack certainly not of their making Their dreams definitely did not involve becoming terrorists and killing people All that they wanted was just doing things that would make others think great of them murderous hatred was never on their agenda Unfortunately life does not go as planned and Imran is jailed for fourteen years Does his jailbreak plot work out What happens to his friends How does his family take to this sudden terrorist tag on their son What of Vanity Bagh What does the mohalla have to say of it all What about the scenario in prison Will the history of Vanity Bagh catch up with Imran Will the communal unrest and simmering violence destroy the life of an unassuming youngsterThe author s narrative is like a journey in itself making the reader feel danger lurking in the corner ready to jump upon you any moment Read on to know Kudos to Anees Salim for writing a novel with a message without sound preaching Very much neededOriginally reviewed at Vaultofbookscom a close knit community of fanatical readers We are looking for perceptive readers who can write well and we are eager to provide lots of free books in exchange for reviews Shot us a mail at contactvaultofbookscom
