This is a difficult book to review because I do not speak Hindi and did not know that my ebook had a glossary at the end of the book. Nevertheless, the language play was exhilarating and occasionally hilarious.

Hindu poetry is quite interesting. My copy came with translations, and you don't really need them to get the basics.

He's done it again! There's only one Daljit Nagra. Jump on!
