In 2009, when ‘Pink Slip Daddy’ was first published, it was called the best work of fiction in recent years by esteemed literary monthly ‘Kathadesh’. It is one of the few books in Hindi which deals with the theme of deceit, cut-throat competition and wacky intellectualism of the corporate world.
The second novella in this book is ‘Simsim’ that is appreciated for its groundbreaking contribution in Hindi fiction. The English translation of ‘Simsim’ has won its translator Anita Gopalan the prestigious PEN-Heim translation grant.
‘Gomutr’, the third novella in this book, is based on the world of bank loans and credit cards. With paper-thin characterization of middle class psyche, Geet impeccably depicts the irony and paradoxes of contemporary Indian society. Merging reality and fantasy, ‘Gomutr’ creates a significant critique of India’s economy and politics of the post-1990 era.
