It had its share of dry moments here and there and to top that, the editing went hay-wire with mis printed names, but it gave me a nostalgic feeling. During his stay in the US, he launched his blog amreekandesi.

His mother agrees to send him only if his father would go there and settle him. Maybe people who have absolutely no idea about American life in general and student life in particular would enjoy reading about the experiences detailed in the book.

If u know US of A by only movies and news then this is a must read! Its amazing how the author has made the every-indian-goes-through-experiences so ,well, funny! The book is going to be released on May 6, when its print and e-book versions hit the stores. And I believe that they should be befriended! Aug 28, Locomente rated it liked it.

Very well written, crisp and hilarious. Jul 21, Vinay Leo R.

Amreekandesi – Masters of America

Read more Read less. Jassi and Akhil meet in Florida and become roommates. The reaction of parents is certified properly. Well the title and the cover page of the book give you enough hints about the story. Great for a light vacation read. On the other hand, Jassi does not want to carry on with his Indian identity as it makes him feel embarrassed and uncomfortable.


So in reality we know little about the life of our desi students in the US, the troubles,travails and the struggles they goAmreekandesi-Front-Coverx through, the cultural shock they face, the hard realities life teaches to them, the way the education system moulds them and makes them work hard and harder, the way they enjoy their lives and their trips, the way they get smitten by love, the way they search for jobs etc.

Its a perfect-ten when compared to the plot of the story: His sense of humor is obviously judgmental but extremely tacky, worth a follow. While, Jassi does not seem happy to carry on with his Indian identity as it makes him feel embarrassed and uncomfortable.

Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down.

With Amreekandesi, the case was the same. One of those amreekandeis which are not easy to put down once you have started if you like masers as a genre. It’s characters are like us not the complex and “colors”ful ones with real ways and realistic dreams and thats why are easy to visualize. It seemed to me like a documentary – chronologically recording each and every action and thought of the characters, rather than a fiction.
