Blurb/Shorttext:
According to N.S. Tasneem, former Fellow, Indian Inst. of Adv. Studies, Shimla, “Parody is an essence of witticism, as it inverts, and not subverts, the truth of a saying. With the passage of time, the human mind is reluctant to register the impact of a proverb even if it has stood the test of time. Something that has become stereotyped is seldom taken seriously for long. But a sly remark or an ironic comment on the age-old wisdom enshrined in a saying or a proverb, may unleash a positive response from the tight-lipped reader. J.S. Anand, who is the author of ‘Bliss: The Ultimate Magic’ besides several other publications, M.S. Anand and Kiran Preet have taken pains to refresh our memory in regard to the proverbs which have been ignored in the age of tension and anxiety. The authors deserve congratulations on their venture into the field of parody that aims at making the lips smile in the workaday life.
