REVIEW Í If It’s Monday It Must Be Madurai A Conducted Tour of India FREE DOWNLOAD ê PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ä Srinath Perur Srinath Perur ä 0 REVIEW A delightful travel bookThis entertaining travelogue around ten conducted tours co. Travel writing as a genre had never really interested me I am fairly certain that the numerous English Comprehension tests I wrote in school that featured extraordinarily tiresome pieces on places around the world are to blame After I passed out I d read very little travel writing and whatever I d read I found to be too introspective and unnecessarily geographical for my taste if not boring Through the years I managed to maintain the same distance one does with dull but well meaning uncles with it far but somewhat friendly So I suppose it was slightly out of character that I picked up Srinath Perur s If It s Monday It Must Be Madurai a collection of ten travel essays based wholly on conductedgroup tours the author has taken It was one of the essays Memorial For The Victims Of Repression which was published as an excerpt in the Open Magazine that initially piued my interest in the book The essay featured his participating in a conducted sex tour to Uzbekistan Perur as the self appointed fly on the wall among a group of repressed Indian men is a joy to read What I particularly loved in that essay and as I would later find out the entire book was that he does not pass judgment on any of his travel companions He merely observes but his observations bear the kind of extreme sincerity that toes on sarcasm and delightfully so I laughed with this book in ways I have not laughed with a book in a very long time There are some paragraphs in his essay on a conducted tour of Rajasthan Desert Knowledge Camel College that are so hilarious that I read them a couple times for extra giggles The Grace of God an essay in which he describes his experience travelling across Tamil Nadu on a temple tour made me reminisce about my own family s seemingly never ending temple trips on which I was a very reluctant attendee In Saare Jahaan Se Accha he takes on Europe with his Desi tour group Perur makes many earnest and thoroughly amusing observations about his group s uniuely Indian characteristics However one stood out for me that of the the foresight of some of the members who had packed snacks and food from home The reason it did was because it brought back a rather stark memory from a trip my family made to Hong Kong in 2010 where we wandered around Ocean Park hungry we were vegetarians and finding vegetarian food in ocean park was akin to finding the proverbial needle in a literal haystack for close to an hour until we bumped into a family who were kind enough to give us the food they had packed from home for their trip Perur writes about taking a trip to the North East in According to Their Own Genius Reading the essay made me feel uite sad It seemed I was familiar with the places and culture discussed in the essay about Europe than I was about places in my own country Real India Santa Claus Aa Rahe Hai and The Same Water Everywhere were good to read but Foreign Culture seemed a bit like a filler arrangement something that he wrote because he wanted a nice round number of essays in his book Incidentally Foreign Culture might just be the only essay among the ten where it seems the author actually had a holiday so you can t help but feel happy for him and his toddy induced stuporMy absolute favourite essay in the book was The Taste Of Sugar Perur undertakes a Wari the traditional walking pilgrimage to Pandarpur It is not often that you come across a piece of writing which balances being insightful and being side splittingly funny with as much grace as this essayIn all I cannot recommend If It s Monday It Must Be Madurai enough Read it for the places he s travelled to but importantly read it for the people he s travelled with

Travel books Are they a thing now that most of the travel we re getting is between our living and bed rooms If you re open to group tours and even open to the humour that s innate to escorted group tours I wholeheartedly recommend Srinath Perur s If It s Monday It Must Be Madurai A Conducted Tour of India Ten different places in its ten different chapters Perur touches upon the uirks of his co passengers as well as their different reasons for embarking upon conducted tours In this process there are occasions for jokes and introspection as the oneness of human nature hits you Through this journey I also started to realize that conducted tours are the bread and butter of India s tourism industry as operators spend hours in carefully designing the itinerary jamming in as much as possible to ensure the best bang for the buckpaisa vasool experience for the customer I first came to Europe through a conducted tour many years ago with my family and some memories that have stuck with me include Chanting Hanuman Chalisa each time we got onto the bus to ensure a safe journey eating Dal Chawal on the Swiss Alps and being chased away buy Pisa s shopkeepers for bargaining And this book encapsulated my bizarre memories from that trip beautifully The diversity in the tours as well as the people he s travelling with bring character and entertainment to his stories While the book stays true to being a delightful travelogue it is also a great primer portrait of India and her people Recommended
