“In turn amusing and poignant, Nathan’s vignettes make for engaging reading. I thoroughly enjoyed them, and so shall you” – Jug Suraiya With fascinating insight, H.V. Nathan weaves several magnificent stories, anecdotes and episodes that pulsate with the quality of a gifted observer, who portrays people and events that make the essence of modern India’s vibrant cities. Stimulating or satirical; perceptive or amusing, Nathan’s themes alternate between the comic relief he finds as a commuter in a jam-packed train; the enigmas he finds as an insider in the grimy world of politics and the entertainment he shares in the melting pot of an urban scenario, thanks to his talent as a linguist. As an aide to a prominent politician and across a career that bridged Kolkata and Mumbai, Nathan views the pan-Indian scene around him with a tinge of irreverent humour, often mirroring the Common Man, immortalized by eminent cartoonist R.K. Laxman, as the inevitable hero. An excellent communicator, Nathan impressed V.S Naipaul enough to devote a whole chapter to this self-effacing man in his tome India: A Million Mutinies Now. Omnium Gatherum now presents Nathan as an author who can engross you in his scintillating sketch of India, in a book that you will mull over long after you have read it.
