The book has a very catchy cover and title. And when I first laid my eyes on the book cover, it gave me a very happy feeling. Every color and the illustrations speak of us as Indians. The cover is a story unto itself.
“Hilarious – India at its very best!”
This book, a fun trip through India—with all the peculiar experiences of the country, has the ingredients to intrigue, the spice to savor, and the nuggets of reflection to delight!
Meet the characters of Chand TV and Changa Times—Madam Chandni, Mr. Chatu, Mr. Raja Chata, voluptuous Ms. Kitry Kat; and the others—the boyfriend Runny Singh, Tinuji, swashbuckling Mr. Anal Manbee, Jamal and the Mangoman. Watch their lives intertwining with the young and lively Ambling Indian’s, as they navigate through the lanes, bylanes, gallis, and mohallas that make up much of India. Coast through Bollywood, the elite Indian Institutes of Technology and the Indian Institutes of Management—hallowed Oxbridges of the East; weddings, politics, and modern offices. Duck and dive as you avoid the cows, potholes, and street dogs. Celebrate the functions and everything else that is the substance of modern India; chaotic yet captivating. Sit back, brace yourself for a quirky, rollicking auto-rickshaw ride, and lose yourself in time as you travel with the aam aadmi (the common man). Discover an India as you have never seen before— through the mirror of the Ambling Indian, Aina; who discovers an unknown side of herself too.
Where characters like Madam Chandni, Mr. Chatu, Mr. Raja Chata, voluptuous Ms. Kitry Kat; and the others make us laugh with their quirky personality.

Ambling Indian Diaries has a different take on Life in India. This is a story of Aina, who is a reporter in Chunga Times and Chand TV
So, what makes India so different? Author Aina Rao here gives us a glimpse of what goes into the making of the Great India Curry. It has quirky spices to make it more interesting. I could see true India in every chapter.
It is a satirical take of events experienced by Aina Rao. The Author has poured her heart out in this book. Though sometimes, it may fail to tickle us in right places, but nevertheless it is an entertaining read.
Author Aina has a unique writing style. Interesting but a wee bit difficult for readers. The book is a short read. I finished it in just 4 hours.
Yes!, If you want to read a book with a unique perspective on India and People living in India. Then you must.
I give it 3/5
