'Miss Laila Armed and Dangerous' review: Manu Joseph's satire-cum-thriller is inspired by politics

A lanky woman, arms akimbo, wearing a tucked-in white shirt, divided skirt and red high heels is standing with her back to us. There's a mike in front of her and she's addressing a nondescript crowd, waving flags -- the 'Bhagwa Dhwaj' the saffron flag of Shivaji, adopted by the RSS to be specific. But what catches the eye is her dress -- specially her khaki shorts. The woman in the Sangh outfit is Akhila Iyer, one of the protagonists in the book. And if the way she dresses is any hint, Miss Iyer is that rare breed that has both a sense of humour and strong political views.

Ayyan Mani is a man born to greater things, which wouldn't surprise his neighbours in the vast tenement building in which he lives, Seventeen-year-old Unni has done something terrible. The only clue to his actions lies in a comic strip he has drawn, which has fallen into the hands of his father Ousep - a nocturnal anarchist with a wife who is fantasizing about his early death He lives in Delhi and is a columnist for The Mint Lounge.

The building collapse coincides with the election victory of an extremely conservative Hindu nationalist party. The influence of politics on the characters in the past and in the current emergency is never far away. Author Joseph is known for his biting political satires and the reading pleasure of this book is enhanced by his sly observations about the state of Indian politics and nationalist politicians in general, perhaps and an exploration of the consequences of Indian anti-Muslim sentiment. Akhila discovers the unknown man alive and mumbling. The intelligence forces see the need for drastic preventive action but no-one knows the who, when and where of situation. Will they overreact like they have in the past? Nevertheless, this bit of news energises the rescue attempts and much effort is made to extract the man and, failing that, to learn more about the would-be perpetrators and their target.


'Miss Laila, Armed and Dangerous is, undoubtedly, one of the most scathing social and political satires of our times. It's funny even when it makes you reel in.

A building collapses in Mumbai. In the debris is a man who is mumbling something in delirium. It appears that he is passing on the real-time movements of a young Muslim couple. Elsewhere, a young intelligence agent is assigned to shadow two terror suspects, one of whom is a teenager and the sweetheart of her street, Laila. Taking up a slice of recent history, the novel glares at the entire system - not just politicians, the bureaucracy, the police and lackeys, but also the good folks.

Manu Joseph born 22 July [1] [2] is an Indian journalist and writer. He is the former editor of Open magazine. Joseph was born in Kottayam , Kerala , and grew up in Chennai.

Manu Joseph's thrilling third novel casts a keen eye on not just law enforcement officials and politicians in flared shorts, but also investigative journalists, environmental activists and the good folks. Illustration by Amruta Patil. Mukundan is unable to guess the nature of the relationship between Jamal and the girl. He is yet to see an indisputable sign of love in the blue Indica, like kissing, or a hand reaching out to squeeze flesh or a man throttling a woman.

An exclusive extract from Manu Joseph’s ‘Miss Laila, Armed and Dangerous’

 Не стану вас затруднять, - ухмыльнулась она, - благодарю за предложение. Но все же кто. Беккер держался своей легенды: - Я из севильской полиции. Росио угрожающе приблизилась.

It s funny even when it makes you reel in horror, and it makes you hope even in the throes of despair.
