About the Book

 

 

Victor Kalyan Ghoshe, a young Indian writer. communication adviser and musician, writes:


The most important offering of the novel is the series of interesting social scenarios portrayed by Mukherjee. Through the lives of Tiger and his friends, Mukherjee picks up and presents insightful snapshots of different classes of society and their interactions.    The author’s charming and free flowing language and descriptive style keeps the book continuously colorful, and he manages to paint a beautiful 'Big Picture’ with the help of many small colourful ones between the front and back covers of ‘Chopped Green Chilies in Vanilla Ice-cream.’ 

Mukherjee is nothing less than the ever popular Indian snack ‘Kolkata's Jhalmuri'.    Truly, this is such an easy read that one can smoothly travel down to the city of Calcutta in the 80s, loiter around and come back to 2011 with lots of delicious fragrances from the past.

 

In short, this book is a delicious read.
