TheMoreRiveting anecdotes about domestic help from Indias best-loved humorist In Servants of India, R.K. Laxman profiles ten hilariously idiosyncratic people, who are among the countless men and women who run the lives of the middle class in India.

The tales are put together by Ganesh, a freelance journalist trying to write a feature article on servants he has known. As his chronicle progresses, what emerges is a richly embellished narrative starring unforgettable characters. There is Swami, the cook, who finds his true vocation as a godman- Kumar, who deserts his household duties to pursue his tinsel-town dreams- Anthony, the driver, who makes money on the side by giving lifts to strangers- the maid Shanti, whose life is thrown into turmoil by the neighbours servant who is besotted with her- and Ramaswami, a trusted retainer who reappears mysteriously, much to the consternation of his employer, long after he has been presumed drowned.

Marked by Laxmans trademark wit, and including pencil sketches drawn especially for this edition, Servants of India is a delightful read. Cover and inside illustrations by R.K. Laxman
