The ’Ordinary Man’ is ordinary only to the extent that he is not a public figure or famous. He is ordinary to the extent that all of us are ordinary and lead mundane lives. Yet with his extraordinary thoughts he captivates us. He is involved in a conversation with someone, whom he calls his alter ego, on the events that shaped his life-his father’s demise when he (the protagonist) was just 13, his days at a premier engineering institution, his dabbling with painting, drama and music his tr [...]

I am not a great bibliophile but I was very keen to read the book of G S Subbo after I came to know of its publication from Face book. This was because I know Subbo, both of us having worked in the same organisation and more importantly I was familiar with his writings through his blog which I found highly enjoyable. So with great expectation I ordered a copy of the book. I took about two days to finish reading the book as I am a bit slow reader. I must admit that I have enjoyed reading the book [...]

“I am just an ordinary man” is an honest and contemplative exposition of the author’s mind in a well articulated style. Although the author’s life as brought out in this book is like that of an ordinary middle class person from a conservative family background, the book is not really a simple autobiographical account of the author. It is much more than that. It presents an extra-ordinary philosophical view of an ordinary man’s life. It starkly brings out the fundamental fact of life th [...]

I read the book in one sitting. The story of this "ordinary man" in parts is really the story of every person growing up in India in the 1960's. Those little infatuations, memories of looking at girls and their leaving an impact which the author still remembers are very interesting. Almost everyone then owned a motorbike, and I have heard at least of three other instances when the men would ride on without realising that their spouse was still to get on the pillion.The sadness of losing his fath [...]

I am Just an ordinary man is the fiction I picked up in the latter half of this year. It is also the first book for me to have been read entirely in my tablet. I had influences on my thought process which in my experience I can compare with that I experienced while reading Paulo Coelho an author I have been reading now and then in the past 8 years or so. The narrative is unique, conversational walking reader through a life which resembles that of reader in some ways but not without sharing a per [...]

Through his book “I am just an ordinary man”, GS Subbu brilliantly paints his biographical canvass with an admirable candidness. Since life of any ordinary person courses through series of struggles and undulating cycle of pains and pleasures, Subbu, through his book, endears himself to most of the readers as they are able to relate themselves to his experiences of the various situations and emotions that are concomitant to the relationships one gets into, as a son, as a husband , as a fathe [...]

A REVIEW OF THE BOOK BY MANOHAR LUTHRA put up by way of comments on his book page is posted here - I have just finished reading your book.I have to say something about the book. Firstly there are lot many similarities in the life of an ordinary man you have so beautifully narrated that I can easily relate to being myself an ordinary man like you. The conflict in the ordinary man' s mundane life and undercurrent of his search for higher consciousness and his quest for self realisation remains wit [...]

When you have to write review of a book written by a close friend it becomes more difficult as there always be a positive bias! While I have known Subu for years (almost for more than 20 years), I never knew he can pen serious articles and publish collection of such articles in the form of a lucid book like this. Any one who will read this book, will have a feeling that the book is written out of the reader's own experience. And that is the reason, "I am Just AN ORDINARY MAN" becomes extra ordin [...]

Reading a book in one session, is not something I am not used to in the recent days. But reading Subbu's book "I am just AN ORDINARY MAN" in one shot has been some kind of record for me.Subbu depicts like Samuel Beckett, the life of an ordinary man, but the capitals in the Title tell us something - that is no ordinary man. Life achievements are counted in the modern times through the number of wounds one carries, but unlike the ancient days to be a Bhishma, one does not need a bed of arrows any [...]

This is an extraordinary work which keeps you interested right through, may be because the story strikes a chord in your heart. The author’s style of story-telling is effortless and gripping at the same time. He analyses his own life in an impartial manner through the medium of a friend who is nothing but his own alter-ego. This is the life-story of a person who through the fever and fret of life never gets diverted from the search for the deep inner silence. The failures in life disappoint hi [...]

Reading this book was an unique experience. A first instance where I knew the author- he was my senior and also my guide through my early Banking days. The book reflects the personality of the author and also his many influencers. There is a part which is autobiographical of his early days, a kafkaesque reflection of life, some parts like speaking to a man was his introspection with is alter ego. The author brings out the meaning of life through his reflections and his family life and that all o [...]

A Unique, Philosophic CreationA philosophical and erudite work. The author's command of the English language is masterly.A very readable book but I'm unsure in which category to place it in. Is it an autobiography? Is it fiction?Whatever it is, it is honest and unpretentious. But probably not for an ordinary reader of racy paperbacks. More for the thinker and the philosopher.Hopefully, the writer will use his talents to pen more books.

Review for G S Subbu’s “I am an Ordinary Man” –2014By Kris KrishnaWhich male individual born and growing up during the mid 20th century in the rigid middle class in post independent India has not felt the angst of who they really were and what they were destined to be?G.S.Subbu in this semi autobiographical and fictional novelette has given voice to those “yearning to breathe free”. He connects with a whole generation of Indians that felt “left out” in the “freedom,” that Ind [...]
