Genus Eitiktikitabodopechonpaka



Those of you who are fans of Samit Basu's work will know what I'm talking about. But for the uninitiated, all you need to know is that this gentle creature was once a God. A god called 'Unwaba'. He moves at a glacial pace but he knows exactly where to go. In fact he knows everything. Everything about the past, the present and the future. It's very annoying to have him around. He has a very bad habit of saying what you're going to say. Like a true Indian, I believe in white hair workship. All respect to the 'Unwaba' the grand old one.

oh man! i want i want i want!!!!!!! :D I googled it, sounds great!!! :D (There are innumerable allusions to literary works from all over the world, including fantasy fiction and other fiction, to tales of superheroes and occasionally even to movies. He draws inspiration heavily from Indian and Greek mythology, Indian folklore and modern fantasy fiction works. This medley of ideas creates a comic and absurd world. Basu liberally uses puns, tangential references, and situational humour to augment the hilarity. At the same time, the text is interspersed with pithy observations and revelations.) I wonder if people understand all the infinite things he puts into his books (Im sure I wont get them all - still fun to read?)
