Just one word Truely Nostalgic This book took me to my school days All mischief, feelings, amateur crush in school, tension of exam, books, classes, Middle class family, friendship, values, teenager things etc etc Must must read for everybody as everyone has gone to school and undoubtedly, is missing all the fun we had in school Kudos to the author who through his writing makes the school live in your imagination It keeps you entertained all the time Its enjoyed a lot as it connects to your heart wherein you have so many nostalgic moments, you embrace them from time to time.Looking forward to watch national award winning movie based on this book.yes, I experience my Shaala again through this. Awesome book Takes you back to school days Although the end is tragic and a big disappointment. I wish I could give Shala six stars because this is easily the best novel I will read this year, and of that I am bloody certain Where generally books take me 2 3 days to read, this one took the better part of a month to enjoy and finish, but what a ride it was Joshi, Surya, Phawdya, Chitre and Shirodkar these aren t just names They are heartfelt characters whose memories and antics will be hard to forget.I have never agreed with a blurb Set in the suburbs of Mumbai during the Emergency in 1975, this book is a heartwarming novel about adolescent struggles that are as torturous in real time as they are amusing in retrospect. I read this book back in my 10th when they were not even remotely near planning a movie about it This book was referred to me by a very precious and interesting friend Nikhil Moholkar.The Book has rightly put emotions of a Boy in Maharashtra s Small towns.A delicate love story which goes smooth and steady along the entire book.The story is from the times of emergency and gives appropriate focus on the situation regarding the emergency as well as has sound touch of typical dialogues and happenings of school life.In a nutshell,A must Read. Ever been to school YES Then this book is definitely going to set your heart racing at points and leave you wanting for.You would actually start wishing for the protagonist s love story to meet a successful ending The setup unfolds in a small town with Mukund Joshi as the central character.Not only then you fall in love with the naive imagination of the kid but start remembering your own school days Probably those who had done their schooling Marathi medium can relate to it.Mukund,Ambabai,Surya,Chitrya and Shirodkarthere are enough number of colorful characters in this voyage.Every character shapes up and end up contributing to Mukund and Shirodkar Love story which subtly matches with the central theme of the book SHALA About the Author,Milind Bokil,has done a great job depicting the 1975 76,Mid Emergency era and amalgamating a common man s life.So swiftly one feels like going along the flow.Kudos Mr Bokil Finally I would love to quote Mukund Shala sampliye,ata rahilay te fakta dahavi navach Bhayan warsha. That day I realised the real fun of school There are classrooms, benches, students and teachers There are subjects maths, geography and even civics But I am not into any of these I am free like that white bird, sitting gaily on the back of a cow I am sitting in school, but I have a separate school of my own That school does not have classrooms, walls, black boards and teachers but the lessons it teaches me are really beautiful Review Shala is a beautiful novel that took me on a nostalgic journey back to my school days It is about a group of friends and the story spans one year of their life 9th standard, the best year of our school life Set in the 70s during the emergency period in India, the story is narrated by the protagonist Joshi It is a story of a bunch of friends around 14 years of age, just on the threshold of adolescence a story of their school, friends, their bhankas , competitions, cricket matches, scout camps, those butterflies in stomach before exams, first love and their coming of age Bokil has a lucid style and the book simply casts a spell that takes us straight back to our favourite bench in the classroom from where we can steal a glimpse of our first crush The main story line revolves around Joshi s first love and his attempts to catch her attention Those were the days when He talks to girls was an adjective seeped in either derision or jealousy, mostly both So Joshi has to be very discreet in his manoeuvres, not even letting his best friends in his secret I know this sounds ridiculous today but this was fairly the state of affairs in most schools even in metro cities till early 90s On a different level, the book talks about love, infatuation, schooling system, discipline, those wonderful days when we wanted to be care free as birds but were caged by the system, society and their so called ethics and morals It is about despair and loneliness of a young boy in love It is also about inseparable friends who will soon step into a new, adult world waiting for them outside and may never see each other again Bokil has captured the urban middle class and its outlook succinctly What makes this book highly enjoyable is that this could well be your own story We all have a Joshi hidden in us somewhere and Bokil through his perfect portrayal of the school, its atmosphere and different characters I am sure you will identify most of them in your life pokes the calm surface sending ripples that bring back the bitter sweet memories of the good old days once again.
