Book: Coinman - An Untold Conspiracy by Pawan Mishracategories: Book, Literary Fiction, Humor, Office Parody, Philosophical, Indian Literature, Satire
Pawan Mishraabout this book: This book is a "day in the life" look at a humble Indian man trying to make his way through a rather extraordinary world. While highlighting the issues of prejudices and social isolation, the book also plays a parody to those who have ever felt stymied by the bureaucratic process of office life and captures successfully and mercilessly the inertia and ennui that's inherit in most corporate cultures.
The book was inspired when the author heard about someone's disturbing habit of jingling coins in his pocket. The book was written as a personal writing between years 2003 - 2007, but author did not think of publishing it until the year 2015.
The hardest part of the book was to write in a way that could convince a reader that a simple habit like jingling a coin could become such an important matter to a large number of people!
The background of the book is set in a small town in northern India--and portrays most of the characters in a way where day to day pain gives way to humor.
