Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, a journey back is a step forward.  

When 26-year-old Ayan is sent to live with his grumpy old grandfather Gopal Shanker in a tiny village in Kerala, he is understandably devastated. What can a sleepy, idyllic village without even internet connectivity offer a young man?

A brilliant story. Extraordinary 1980's feel.

Pros - Story is extraordinary. Letters exchanged between characters are so emotional and nostalgic, especially life of grandfather.

Cons - Atleast they could have used a female voice for Rohini & real elderly voice for Gopal Shankar. Aayan voice was perfect.

A few background sounds (just a few) could have made the whole narration super easy and interesting.

This way narration could have got more emotional and heart wrenching.

Amazing story and beautiful narration

A touching story of Muthachen beautifully woven around his various life experience. My eyes were wet many times. Thanks Preeti Shenoy for this wonderful story.
and even better was the soulful rendition by Aswin Varrier. He gave life to every scene so well that I was transported to actually witness them. A must read/hear

Engrossing Story and narration

Though the story started off with a new-age work life setting, it gradually moves to a serene idyllic Kerala village lifestyle. The story builds up pretty fast after that. Never a dull moment.
