Get Ready for Swami and Jigneshbhai!

The one thing that Jigneshbhai likes is a quite life. But his restless friend doesn't let him have much of it. Especially when it comes to his health. "My cholesterol has gone up. My triglycerides are also on the higher side, The sugar level is also not very comfortable. I am on the edge of being prediabetic," Swami announced, and that was just the start.

When that innocent health check-up report was seen by Raji Periamma, it leads to Swami and Jigneshbhai meeting a specialist. And it turns out to be only the first step in a series of unexpected episodes. It starts with an accidental meet with astrologers, leads them to a funny drunkard and results in some unnecessary action at the cinema hall. It starts a set of funny coincidences and uneasy trickery leading up to a temple visit that shakes Swami’s faith. As Jigneshbhai and Swami manoeuvre this motley group of the bad and the silly, it takes a speech and a doctor’s appointment for the confusion to unwind and let the multiple cats out of the multiple bags!

The author builds an intriguing tale of good vs evil through a set of motley silly characters and everyday situations that accompany Swami's book smartness and Jigneshbhai's street smartness. Often delving into the difference between knowledge and wisdom with philosophical musings, the author peppers them with tongue-in-cheek humour. The characters of the wealthy old man and a spiritual talking dog Deja add a taste of comic wisdom.

Ranjit Kulkarni takes us on a ride with Jigneshbhai and Swami in his debut novel - a ride that is a mix of humour and wisdom, and as the title aptly suggests a mix of the good, the bad and the silly.

About the Author

Ranjit Kulkarni is a writer based in Bangalore India. Born and brought up in Mumbai by a police officer and a homemaker, he was educated at NIT Warangal and IIM Lucknow. He spent 22 years in the Technology and Consulting Industry before taking up writing books. When not writing, Ranjit is often found reading, tracking the stock market and talking to his wife and son on philosophy (though he suspects they rarely listen).

He created Swami, the confused bloke with a heart of gold and Jigneshbhai, his wise friend and advisor. They have featured in many of his blog articles and books with their discussions and exploits, pursuing a world of their own. Other characters like the wealthy old man and Deja the spiritual dog add a flavour of comic philosophy to Ranjit’s writing. Ranjit's writing style, according to readers, blends the humourous with the spiritual, the mundane with the meaningful, and often revolves around philosophical musings peppered within tongue-in-cheek, slice-of-life anecdotes.

Ranjit married Kshitija on the last day of 1997 and, with their son Parth, they live in Bangalore India. Ranjit is reachable by email at
