Duniya Ne Oondha Chashmah Book: A Satirical Masterpiece by Tarak Mehta

Duniya Ne Oondha Chashmah (The World Upside Down) is a collection of humorous essays by Tarak Mehta, one of the most renowned and celebrated Gujarati writers of the 20th and 21st centuries. The book, which was first published in 1971, consists of 80 essays that cover various topics such as politics, society, culture, religion, sports, entertainment, and more. The book is based on Mehta's weekly column of the same name that appeared in the Gujarati magazine Chitralekha for over four decades. The book has been translated into several languages, including Hindi, English, Marathi, and Bengali.


The book is famous for its witty and satirical style of writing, which exposes the absurdities and hypocrisies of the contemporary world. Mehta uses humor as a weapon to criticize the corruption, injustice, violence, superstition, and ignorance that plague the society. He also makes fun of his own experiences and observations as a common man living in a chaotic and complex world. The book is full of hilarious anecdotes, puns, metaphors, and sarcasm that make the readers laugh out loud. The book also reflects Mehta's deep love and respect for his native language and culture, as he uses various Gujarati idioms, proverbs, and folktales to enrich his writing.

The book has been adapted into a popular television sitcom called Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (Taarak Mehta's Inverted Glasses), which started airing on SAB TV (now Sony SAB) in 2008. The show is one of the longest-running and most-watched comedy shows in India, with over 3,000 episodes as of 2023. The show features a diverse cast of characters who live in a fictional housing society called Gokuldham in Mumbai. The show follows their daily lives, adventures, and misadventures as they deal with various issues and challenges with humor and optimism. The show also promotes social awareness and values such as unity, harmony, friendship, honesty, and patriotism.

Duniya Ne Oondha Chashmah is a book that has entertained and enlightened generations of readers with its brilliant humor and satire. It is a book that showcases the genius and legacy of Tarak Mehta, who was awarded the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award of India, in 2015 for his contribution to literature and culture. It is a book that deserves to be read and enjoyed by everyone who loves laughter and wisdom.
