English, August by Upamanyu Chatterjee
If you have been to any government office or if you’re working there, then this book is a must read. Upamanyu Chatterjee has presented how things work in an Indian office and it’s refreshingly funny. The story revolves around Agastya Sen and how his life changes when he goes to Madna, a small town. The author has also drawn heavily from his own experience in the Indian administrative service to paint a picture of rural India.
