A Review of Bariatu Tales by Author Kiran Manral

“A compilation of anecdotes and vignettes from growing up in the 1970s, Kumar Kinshuk weaves together a nostalgic trip that must be savoured piece by piece. A harkening to a gentler time when television and the internet had not yet become the mainstay to fend off boredom, 70s children would definitely identify and enjoy these charming reminiscences, universal as they are to that day and age.”

A Review by Author Kanchana Banerjee

“It is a very interesting book that will take you back in time, back to 1970s and thereabouts, and the characters, their lives and how life was in its simple form in the past. I found it especially interesting because most books are contemporary, in the present times in the society as we see it today. Kinshuk has done something very interesting with his book and he has strived to recreate the world of the bygone era, which I think is a remarkable feat, so do buy his book, read it and I am sure you will enjoy it as I did.”
