parsai rachnavali (vol. 1-6)parsai rachnavali by Harishankar Parsai
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

He is the best satire writer in hindi, period. If you want to know post independence India through literature just read parsai. He is humorous, witty, thorough and brutally honest. He has a keen eye for details. He does not spare himself too. Well he is my second favorite Hindi write of prose after Premchand (who is the best of course). I would highly recommend him to anybody who wants a good laugh but doesn't like slapstick. His wit will amaze you and entertain you. Most importantly he is a thinking woman writer. SO he will make you think and introspect.
