SUFI…THE INVISIBLE MAN
OF THE UNDERWORLD
The title is shocking, so is the novel, if you can call it that. It is really more of a documentation of two youngsters of the ill-famed Dongri locality of Mumbai. Together they take you on a journey into the dark, depressing world of Muslim society, peeling off layer after layer. This is the ghetto where the sun’s rays never reach, where the struggle for survival begins in the cradle, where danger lurks around every corer.
This is the neighborhood in which the author was raised during the golden period of gold smuggling. When Karim Lala was the supreme don, Haji Mastan was steadily moving up the ladder and Dawood Ibrahim played ‘gulli danda’ with other children. What the author saw and experienced in the formative years of his life is reported here, uncensored, in vivid detail.
