Kashi Ka Aasi is widely regarded as an exceptional chronicle of Varanasi, an extremely important religious place for Hindus, by the river Ganges. Assi Ghat is a ghat in Varanasi (Banaras) on the banks of the Ganges River. The story is set in the post-independence period. The language used is necessarily explicit, portraying without coloring the popular culture of one of India's holiest cities, while maintaining a sense of humor throughout. Of all the written material on the ghats of Varanasi, nothing quite matches the colors, the water, the rituals and the history as presented by Kashi Nath Singh. The fields of Assi are rife with intellectual discussions of the fresh Babri Masjid demolition and the break-up of the USSR, in the late night adda sessions of the ghats. The conversations between lawyers, professors, poets, artists and student leaders are punctuated by anecdotes from Tulsidas and Kinaram. Kashi Ka Aasi was published by Neha Publishers Distributors in 2008 and is available as a paperback. Key Features: This book features authentic stories from the Assi Ghat. Its is also the basis for the Bollywood movie, Mohalla Assi.
