Nautanki Diaries is a love story of a man and his ‘doodhwalla’ bicycle. Nautanki has her own tantrum and she is the best travel partner and a companion one would think of. She worthy to be trusted and takes good care of her rider not creating much ruckus when treated with love and care; regular service and oiling of her parts.
The time I started the book, I fell in love with Nautanki. She looks like the best companion Dominic can ever think he had. She is his travel partner and a girl-friend he trusted with his life.
The writing is at its best. One could not think of a better-written travelogue than this one. This is one of the best-written non-fiction travel diaries and I will like to read it again. It is a well-crafted smooth read with a quirky humor and candor. I like every inch of it and recommend to every reader wants to read something refreshingly new.
