Ik varri ik Sardar si.... Koi vaddi gal nahin.... Hum assaan saare Bante haan..... The Sardar joke has an unmatched originality, verve and versatility. Capturing the affection and abandon that accompanies its best renditions, this eclectic collection pays tribute to a hitherto unexplored dimension of Sardar humour. Through the rustic foibles of Banta and his friends, we are gently reminded that the joke is really on us and all our pretensions.

His articles on politics and current affairs have appeared in print and online publications in India and America. In other lives, he has worked for a bank and run two software companies.
