‘Patyala down the throat is an adventures odyssey of a twenty one year old boy who experiences sweet-bitter tastes of life. The story is set in an educational institute (sort of a Grukul) where a soft natured boy turns up seeking solution about his carrier. Dev the protagonist being the only hero discovers facets of love, emoting, sacrifice and other varying emotions across a series of unfortunate events that happens to him. What follows the whirlwind is the advent of Mirchi Seth, 37 china town, dukes of hardcore drinkers rally and the quixotic dilemma keeping the racy style of the novel alive till end. But what seems to change him is a single statement of his mentor which touched his life.
Making full use of his in-dept imaginative power, Chandraprakash has used simple literary words, racy fiction style as well as lots of characters to highlight the inherent attributes of love life and liquor being given more important in front of the carrier stuff in this 21st century life. The book subtly touches human emotions which get entangled in confusion over work or friends. It deals with the complication regarding the toughest part of being an entrepreneur. The question arises whether the protagonist will listen to his own conscience by being the same or will he bring work and his future an important thing in his life.
Though the charm of the book is the story but what needs to give an eye is the cover and the paper quality. Rest i believe this book has the potential to grow above five point some one.
Best wishes to the Author!!
