Spotlight: Half Pants Full Pants by Anand Suspi

Greetings Everyone,
Do you go into flashbacks of your childhood remembering the games you played, your friends, your school, sweets you loved, tricks you played, sneaking around the house when mom was taking a nap, the pretend-plays of teachers/detectives/restaurants/... ?

This book will take you on a nostalgia filled journey as we explore Author Anand's childhood in Shimoga. Do read it. Im sure it will remind you of RK Narayan's Malgudi Days :)

Im slow-reading this book to absorb a peaceful, fun, humorous account of innocence.




HALF PANTS, FULL PANTS
REAL LIFE TALES FROM SHIMOGA
by
Anand Suspi



Blurb

Half Pants Full Pants is a sort of childhood autobiography set in Shimoga of the 70s and 80s. Given the era and milieu that he grew up in, it carries a flavor similar to that of Malgudi Days. All the characters in the book are real and most of them are still in Shimoga, of course now in their mid-40s. Quite a few are from prominent families and are now active and important members of Shimoga. The book vividly captures the real childhood adventures of this generation of people in Shimoga. It’s a glorious reminiscence as well as a tribute to this wonderful town.

R. Balki says

“After Malgudi Days, I could never imagine that someone could create a childhood classic for adults to regain their innocence even for a few hours. Suspi’s tales would have made R K Narayan smile. Oh! That beautiful Kannadiga gene!”

Half Pants Full Pants is his first book, a sort of childhood autobiography set in Shimoga of the 70s and 80s. Given the era and milieu that he grew up in, it carries a flavor similar to that of Malgudi Days. The notable difference would be that every story is real and the characters are all in their mid-40s now, often reminiscing about the gloriousness of their growing up years.
