Are you kiddin’ me. Is a collection of humorous stories, with a medley of emotions and anecdotes from our everyday lives. From the aspirations of a wannabe entrepreneur, to the fate of the student who thinks he knows more than his teachers; from a young management Trainee in love with his bosses daughter to the out of body experience of an urban man. Each story has been carefully crafted to brighten up your day. The stories are unique, each with a subtle underlying message for the discerning reader wanting to read between the lines and find that elusive deeper meaning. These hilarious stories will not only entertain but also inspire and motivate you to love more, live better and laugh louder. And yes, there is a deliciously wicked twist in each tale. Ps: don’t Miss the footnotes.
Humour is the genre which is least explored by the Indian Authors, yet the most famous & interesting one. It is the genre which gave us writers like P. G. Wodehouse and many others, who not only entertained us but tried to improve our society with a little help of fun. This book is also an addition in the comparatively small, than others, but better genre.
This book is a humorous collection of 20+ stories based on similar as well as different topics and all of them are good. There is a total of 13 topics having 2-5 stories under each topic. For Example, there are stories based on a wannabe entrepreneur, a student and many others. The characters and stories are picked up from our day-to-day life so you won’t find it hard to understand the jokes or stories. The author has used satire and irony in some stories also. Written in a unique style, these are not the stories which pretend to be humorous, in fact, they are indeed humorous and worth reading multiple times. Each of the stories inside this book will have an everlasting effect on you and you will find yourself laughing abruptly by just remembering them.
Overall, this book is a perfect read for those who want entertainment and read something funny. The author Anirban Das has done a praiseworthy deed by writing this book.
P. S.- Don’t miss to read the footnotes because they hold a very important key role in the stories. You will miss a lot if you don’t read them.
P. P. S.- There’s another book from the same author also which I haven’t read yet but after reading this I have made my mind to definitely read that book. I will share my opinions on that book also very soon.
P. P. P. S. – Go & buy the book ASAP.

Are You Kiddin’ Me? is his second book, following the runaway success of his first one, Just Kidding…Yours, Destiny.
