And debating ideas such as discipline and Bohemianism Set in a small Maharashtrian town during the Emergency of 1975 Shala is a heart warming nuanced novel about the adolescent struggles that are as tortuous in real time as they are amusing in retrospec 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 forgetI 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

Mukund Joshi is fourteen and newly in love He attends the same private tuitions as his classmate Shirodkar just for a glimpse of her and follows her back home every day Sadly she has not a clue that he is pining away for her because in their society boy 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 90sOn 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
