Item description for Nation of Fools: Or Scenes from Indian Life by Balraj Khanna...

The age-old conflicts between father and son are played out in this humorous and gently satirical novel set in postpartition India. Omi is just one of the boys in Camp Baldev Nagar expected to pass his exams, agree to an arranged marriage, and generally improve his station in life. However, he comes to resent the traditional life laid out for him by his hot-blooded, sweet-vending, social-climbing father. Creating a great deal of ill will as he challenges his father's authority, Omi strives to establish his independence and chart his own life. Along the way he surprises everybody, including himself.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nation of Fools: Or Scenes from Indian Life?

Gentle, funny and chaotic --- like India  Dec 12, 1997
I read this book years ago and loved it. One quote from the book my husband and I say to each other often is about living in chaos: "Right Kaliyug, this." Meaning that we are living in Kaliyuga, or the age of Kali, when everything is bad and wrong --- but we are cheerful about it.
