About the Book

Lolita's first delightful book is about her life through her twenties to fifties; recounting her funny escapades, from watching Amitabh Bachchan from the gent's toilet window in Wembley, to facing subtle and subliminal racism, and looking for work in the UK; from her utter exhaustion with her prematurely born child to her heartbreak now that he has gone overseas for his further studies.


Her columns are hilarious but hard hitting, and she has a self-deprecating humour…

Book launch at Kolkata

This is a book only a true Indian desi can write, that too a true Indian desi Female ! It’s non pretentious, warm, witty, insightful - having you smiling all through the smooth and quick read ! It has the right amount of earthiness and worldly wise blending in very well. Congratulations Lolita ! This is a hit !

Ironic Humour at its best

Reviewed in India on 20 September 2022

Lali has pulled off a rare feat in Indian writing. Dead pan straight faced self deprecatingly humorous writing, a rarety amongst Indian writers. The struggles with the multifarious English accents, their idiosyncracies are all brought out with the lightest of touches. You will feel that you've known the writer forever, so easily does she take you along. Heartily recommended.
