Are you there Krishna? is a hilarious account on identity, narrow minded people, sexism and taking life easier without forgetting who you are. At least once in a while, it is also about ghosts, meeting celebrities and one-night stands. 'If you're easily offended, don't read this book', but if you do, you will get some good funny waves out of it, because when everything goes wrong, a smile can wipe everything. Tomorrow you can start anew again.
Behind the laughs and the fun and the ridiculous situations - the account of the trip to Europe makes you laugh loud for minutes - there is a serious layer questioning the ethnic stereotypes, rejecting the stupidity of male-centered world and the assigned gender limitations. But she is coming along with all of them in a way or another, and sometimes also finding a good antidote to all of it, because 'fashion magazines are cheaper and healthier than Xanax'.
It is a book that make you both laugh and think, maybe change your mind too about the way in which you accepted all those family, and society and gender and class identities that sometimes do not have nothing with you as a free human being.
If you are looking for some inspirational reading while on the way to work, this is the best recommendation. It can change your mind so much that maybe you will consider leaving your job and, who knows, going out in Europe finding yourself.
