Description

Behram Contractor, aka Busybee, wrote a satirical column every day for thirty-six years which became a part of the daily lives of countless readers. He wrote on every topic under the sun, with great depth and sensitivity. His columns were sharp and witty but never hurtful or malicious. And people grew to love his fictitious characters: Busybee’s talking dog, Bolshoi the Boxer; his wealthy friend on the twenty-first floor; his little sons, Darryl and Derek; and, of course, The Wife.

This collection brings together for the first time the finest selection of the column Round and About. It is a must buy for all those who have enjoyed and been brought up on Busybee’s writing.

REVIEWS

Anybody who writes a social history of Bombay in the second half of the 20th century will find that his most essential source material will be the columns of Busybee’s.
-Dom Moraes

I always felt Busybee’s presence through his writings.
-Sachin Tendulkar

No one could write like him, his thoughts composing themselves magically, somewhat like the symphony of a rain shower, into an everyday poem.
-Khalid Mohammed
