Band, Baaja, Boys! is a sure-fire laugh riot that will make you giggle, chortle, chuckle and often burst into large guffaws.
BA-pass Brajesh sold bras in Manphodgunj. Perhaps his destiny was sealed the day Babuji named him Bra-jesh. Under normal circumstances, Brahmins were not supposed to be businessmen. But Kumud Bajpai had brought along a hosiery shop as dowry and there was no looking back. Only front!
One glance and Brajesh could estimate, ‘Madam, 38D will be perfect.’
Together, they had produced and raised Binny, their twenty-year-old daughter, who they lovingly called a ‘happy-go-lucky’ girl: happy to spend her father’s money while different fellows got lucky.
As was noted by most of Manphodgunj’s male population, Binny had come of age. Who, from the queue of suitors will bag her? Raja, who has lost his heart to her? Or, the ‘gorment‘- job-holder Tarun? Or, will it be the Sanskari-N.R.I., Harsh? Or, will Binny spurn all of them and elope with Rahul Pandey?
Band, Bajaa, Boys! will take you on the laugh-o-coaster of your life!

A typical battered woman/love triangle tale with a unique supernatural twist.
Who is Cassandra Blakemore?
Well, to her friends and family she’s simply known as “Cassy” who’s got the perfect life. She attends college, has a cute boyfriend, awesome friends and loving relatives. Except that charming boyfriend, Raleigh, ends up being her worst nightmare. One minute he’s a sweet and caring guy, then when he has a few drinks, he completely flips out by becoming abusive in ways that Cassy’s never seen before.
After experiencing what has tragically broken Cassy’s heart, she eventually flees to another city in search of a new beginning. But just when everything finally starts to go well, Cassy realizes that even she isn’t who she thinks she is.
She soon discovers abilities that she never knew existed within her. Powers like premonition, telekinesis and levitation. This all too familiar story comes with a supernatural twist that will delight every reader. (more…)
