He studied law in Bangalore and was intent on entering the Indian Civil Service when circumstances forced him to turn to crime. Starting from the early s, Sreedhar found himself entrenched in the bitter gang wars that shaped the contours of modern Bangalore.
Since I'm familiar with most of the places mentioned KR Park, where he extorts gay men, happen to be my favorite place in Bangalore it was like discovering a secret history of your country.
He doesn't indulge in deep discussion of his morality or try The subject matter is really interesting and worth more; at least a 4. He doesn't indulge in deep discussion of his morality or try to justify his behavior except that one sentence - there is no hero or villain, only circumstances , but I really enjoyed trying to understand his morality and philosophy from the subtle hints strewn around. It's very interesting that he thinks criminals, aka thieves and robbers, are different from the Underworld Folks, or that he is okay with murdering for revenge but is apparently horrified about murdering for money.
The book got a little whiny and self righteous at the end. But overall, the subject matter is excellent. The writing however is a different issue. I assume the Kannada version must have better language the title itself sounds so much better , but the English is best described as dreary.
Plus who describes a man as having 'paused' anyhow? I also have an issue with the amount of foreshadowing.
The author must have been really concerned you'll miss the subtle hints of crisis to come. I would have liked the book much better if it didn't read like a narration of the defendant's crime presented in a court of law. Sreedhar is almost obsessed with keeping every event cut and dried.
For example, he understood some events only years after they happened. But he compulsively explains everything while describing the event. That kills suspense and makes it read less like a memoir and more like a police report. I disliked the writing enough to think this is slightly on the higher side of 2. Just barely. But still it's definitely worth a read for Bangaloreans.
Aug 22, Joseph rated it liked it. Interesting book. Not my usual thing, but a coworker recommended it and it seemed interesting enough. It was really different from what I was expecting though. Sreedhar is a BAMF, going through Bangalore kicking ass and taking names by extorting gay men, running an oil business, and other such things , but is scared of guns.
From my perspective, there's a vaguely innocent quality to all of this, watching people in the book freak out over guns and alcohol, even after they hacked to pieces a huge Interesting book.

From my perspective, there's a vaguely innocent quality to all of this, watching people in the book freak out over guns and alcohol, even after they hacked to pieces a huge rival don.
The one major disappointment I get from this book is Sreedhar's reluctance to share much of his interior life. We get to read about all of his exploits, many of his crimes, and most of the turning points that led him to where he is now, but in all of it, it's mostly told in a detached, descriptive manner, and I didn't get to learn much about who he was at these points in his life, or how he decided to make these choices.
Overall it's a pretty interesting look at the underworld in Bangalore, though it's not the most accessible book for Western audiences. So if, like me, you're not from Bangalore and don't know much about it or its political and cultural makeup, and, unlike me, don't work with someone who is, you probably won't get as much out of it.
Jan 13, Abinav Athreya rated it really liked it. It took me time to finish this book. There were too many characters in the plot and time to understand the situation takes time. But it is worth a read to know about the activities of the Bangalore Underworld. Godfather by Mario Puzo has inflicted images of gangsters in our mind which this book changes completely. In this book, the gangsters are not killing for business. It is personal revenge that matters more than business.
Now the rating time Plot Jul 27, Viju rated it really liked it Shelves: A very very engrossing read.
The fact that a lot of the locations in the narration are places that are within a two kilometer radius of where I live or are places that I frequent, this despite being something about the underworld was very relatable. I loved the narration style and the way the book was demarcated into sections. Jan 25, Dinkar Sitaram rated it really liked it.
The good: The bad: We never understand why the author was so ready to resort to violence in many incidents where other people would have filed a police complaint.
Winner of a Karnataka Sahitya Parishad Award. Too strong to take some of it Yet very touching!! This book explains the brutality of Underworld at the same time it explains the love and affection people have..
Trusting people in underworld doesn't seem to be an easy thing But it proved the unexpected Oct 09, Guru rated it it was ok. As an account of the author's adventures in Bangalore's underworld - this has all the colorful characters one could expect, complete with colorful names.
The narration is completely arbitrary and most parts are kind of pointless. Strictly for Bangaloreans. Nov 20, Santhosh rated it liked it. Good one to understand the perspective of a committed criminal. Sep 03, Sandeep rated it really liked it. An essential guide to anyone who would want to know and understand the runnings and players of the Bangalore underworld in the 70s and 80s.
Well written and the insider angle is definitely helps. Jul 22, D is currently reading it.
