Quirky, funny and intelligent. #GoodForNothingNalayak is a collection of short stories written to add a smile on the face of anyone who reads this book. If you didn’t smile, buy the author’s next book. In India, parents keep reminding their children on how they would end up working as laborers laying bricks for a house or raising cattle in the fields – if they do not study well. Children are reprimanded by their elders as “Good for Nothing” or Nalayak (unworthy in Hindi) most of the time. The author has written these stories as a true and upcoming Nalayak, so he hopes to live up to that reputation.
