Kurzbeschreibung

What do you reply if your trusted coconut vendor asks about your salary?
How do you take a shower using only a bucket?
What do you do when you miss the night bus to the beach?
How do you bargain with a dentist?
How do you get a tailor to deliver your dress on time?
Why are your colleagues offended if you don’t bring chocolate to the office?

Aurelia happened to be in all these situations during her past four years in India. India unplugged is an eclectic and highly personal collection of stories to let us have a peak into her colorful travels and life in India.

Part travelogue, part memoir, and part advice for India travelers, this book is brimming with hilarious cultural misunderstandings, witty observations and quirky one-liners.

Entertaining, witty, and insightful, India unplugged is an irresistible treat for armchair tourists, experienced expats and adventurous backpackers alike.

Aurelia Zoss grew up in Austria and loved to travel from an early age. During her studies, she traveled across the Indian subcontinent once as a tourist and once as a researcher for several months. She has seen every corner of India: from the Himalayas to the Southern tip of India; from the Northeast to the coasts of Kerala - and every place in between.

After graduating from university, she moved to Bangalore and started working and living in India.

When her friends and colleagues urged her to chronicle her hilarious stories in a book, she wrote this honest, compelling, and entertaining memoir based on private journal entries.

I suppose it’s possible to use this book as a travel guide when travelling the first time to India, but primarily it’s very entertaining. It is very nice and funny to read and the stories are really amusing. I’ve never been in India so I can’t compare to my own travel experiences, but I’m sure the book isn’t just entertainment, you can really learn much about the country, the culture and the Indian way of life. Fascinating!

By the way: If english ist not your mother tongue don’t be afraid, it will be possible to read and understand the book too if your english skills are a little bit out of practice. Just like me.

Aurelia describes her experiences of the daily life in a very refreshing way. After six month travelling and staying in India by my own, so many of the short story's make me laugh, remind me how it really is and let me dreaming of going back.

For a first time traveller, this book could give you some impressions to see behind, gives you insight of the real life and help you to feel more comfortable in some situations.
If you are already back or experienced India traveller, Aurelias "India - unplugged" will wake up some of your memories and brings India directly back in your hands.

I hope you enjoy it, like i did and do.

I have spent the last five years in India, and let me tell you this much: This woman shares stories that sound like she spent an entire decade in this crazy country! So many expats live in their air conditioned offices and enjoy being driven around by their drivers to fancy restaurants and clubs but have no clue what is really happening in ‘their’ country. Not so Aurelia. She immersed herself in this India experience like a naïve but curious girl. And her openness paid off: She was able to fill an entire book with crazy and funny stories about her travels and her life in India.

Just to be sure:
This is not a boring account about lame and uptight expat parties or hanging out on the beach. This is an expat memoir of a different kind.

Instead of bragging about her superior lifestyle, or lamenting about the ‘tragic’ deprivations she had to endure in India – as you can find in plenty other expat reports – Aurelia really took the plunge. She is telling us stories about REAL people: Bus drivers, coconut sellers on the street, Indian bosses, co-workers, dentists, tailors, and her hilarious interactions with them.

I was amazed at the humbleness with which she shares her stories in such an authentic and unassuming way. Lastly, I have to admit that I am impressed by her deep understanding of this complex country.

Totally worth a read.
