Book Description

About the book

Humour from Hyderabad is a collection of thirty comic episodes that emanate from the ordinary, everyday instances as effective catalysts of humour. Seen from the eyes of a professor in the city of Nizams, the humorous situations and characters not only tickle your funny bone but also teach you how to rejoice life come what may. The variety of situations, characters, interests, obsessions, aspirations give an ample idea of how we are all fools of life without knowing about it. The healthy family feelings, friendly sentiments, parental affection, and professional contentment can induce abundant joviality in one’s humdrum existence. The pieces in this collection give a testimony to the fact that life has in it an inbuilt mechanism of automatic titillation to further its onward flow. Fresh from the garden of life, this bouquet of diverse hues and colours, each with its own amusing illustrations, will have you splitting with laughter.
