Cabbing all the Way

If you have had the experience of commmuting to and from office in a cab shared by colleagues, or are currently doing so, you would be able to identify with the book right away. Don't worry if you have not had this "exposure" - it is a book that can be enjoyed, nevertheless.

The story revolves around few colleagues who have to travel a fair amount of distance to reach office, using various modes such as overcrowded public transport, autorickshaws, pooling on two wheelers, etc. Needless to say, the idea of a cab is welcomed by everyone as it seems to take care of the common challenge. However, things are easier said than done. 

After the initial hiccups, issues such as people not reaching their pickup points on time, girls requesting for doorstep pickups and drop offs, especially if it is raining, start cropping up.

Jatin Kuberkar, in his simple narration style, portrays each situation with care and brings out the straits in each character. From colleagues, they become friends who provide tips to each other in critical moments, and also develop special bonds.

Nothing remains the same, but coping with change is also important. The book ends with a positive note.

I would give this book 3 stars out of 5.
