Society – Mehernosh Kapadia

Dear Friend,
My first novel SOCIETY will hit all the major book shops next friday in India , Pakistan, Bangladesh and Srilanka.
Please let me have your feedback after reading it.
Warm regards
mehernosh kapadia

A drug addict, Dalit prostitute is accused of murder of the only son of a powerful politician, who is hoping to become the next prime minister.  A most successful lawyer in Mumbai is appointed to defend the dalit prostitute. He believes in justice but is his belief strong enough to withstand the loss of everything he holds dear – his highly paid job, his rich lifestyle, his family ?

    Mehernosh Kapadia with his novel Society

    Excellently written.

    All community members should back a man like this , all Parsee papers should give him exposure and the Parsee Panchayat honour him

    excellent

    Geart work brother keep it up

    Let us know when ever you write the next novel , which i am sure

    • Mehernosh Kapadia

      Thankyou very much for your kind words.

      I intend to bring out my next novel by May this year.

      I will certainly keep all you wellwishers posted.

      Thanks again.

  • In my part of India where i live there are hardly any Parsees, so when i saw a novel written by a Parsee i picked it up—Society by Mehernosh Kapadia
    He has really captured the Society as it is today , it depresses me as a youngster that this is what society is today. But i must say his writting is excellent. as good as Dan Brown’s -Da Vinci Code

  • Mehernosh Kapadia

    Thankyou very much for your kind words.

    Dont let anything in life depress you.
    Be Positive and trust God

      • Dear Friends,
        I came across a novel SOCIETY written by a one of our Parsi brothers Mehernosh Kapadia.

        The novel is very well written.
        It is fast paced and deals with what our SOCIETY is today.
        The novel has emotion, action and reflection.

        Many people have appreciated the book from all walks of life, which you can see from the comments they have given on the back cover of the book which is attached.

        Once you start reading the novel you will not want to put it down. Happy reading to all.

  • Dr. Aban Movdawalla

    Mehernosh’s first book ‘Society’ is difficult to describe- in one word it is ‘UNPUTDOWNABLE’
    -A brilliant first effort, it is racy, well written and keeps the reader engaged from the first page to the last-a thought provoking novel about the inequality of society, the downtroddenness & humiliation of the backward classes and Dalits and a reflection of the general degradation of our times
    – A must read for all lawyers- the hero, N. Dev, a ‘Utopian’ lawyer is simply a hearthrob
    – Great work Mehernosh-A bollywood blockbuster is in the making! Looking forward to your 2nd, 3rd and other novels!!

  • I truely enthralling novel SOCIETY by Mehernosh Kapadia.
    He has understood the Indian political and social structure exceptionally well.
    Nothing better to read than this novel in the market.

  • mehernosh kapadia

    Thanks I Karanjia for your kind appreciation

  • Folks I picked up SOCIETY written by Mehernosh Kapadia.
    What a novel —WOW.
    The novel you just want to finish in one go—excellent.
    I throughly enjoyed by Saturday and Sunday reading it.
    He has a unique way of educating you about the Dalits by a seperate chapter at the end after the novel is over.
    He much better than Chetan Bhagat. Hope to read your next novel soon.

  • All I do in life is read novels eat and dream.
    I must have ready over 500 novels by now and all subjects.
    My favourites so far have been Sydney Sheldon, Harrold Robbins and Aurther Hailey.
    Today i have added one more name to them –Mehernosh Kapadia. His novel SOCIETY is complete in all aspects. It sends a message and also entertains which very few authors are able to do. They just entertain. Mehernosh I want to meet you. Lots of kisses and hugs.

  • Hi Mehernosh,
    I have not yet read this book, but certainly will.
    Very soon. After reading all the praises showered on it by our fellow parsis, my curiosity is cerainly piqued.
    I am in Kerala at present and there are “0” as in no parsis here.
    Do keep in touch and inform me whenever your new work comes along.
    ALL THE BEST.
    Jesi.

    • mehernosh kapadia

      Thanks Jesi.

      My next novel will be released in May 2010 hopefully.

      Please let me have your constructive criticism, also do recommend it to your friends after reading it and if you like it.

    • Who says there are no Parsis in Kerala. Come to Wayanad and you will find one living at the edge of the woods.
      Regards

    • mehernosh kapadia

    • mehernosh kapadia

      You bring tears in my eyes dost.

      Hope to see you soon in India.

      Thanks for all your warm wishes.

  • Through my friends i came across this site when i was recommended Mehernosh Kapadia’s novel SOCIETY. Great work Yezdi.

    Your site is very informative.

    Also what a great novel mehernosh has written. Just UNPUTDOWNABLE. The best novel i have read in many many years. Let us all Parsees support him and make it a grand success.

  • I had started reading The Afghan by Frederick Forsyth the great novelist who gave us The Day of the Jackal and Oddesa Files. But i feel he has lost touch with writing and i put down The Afghan as it was just boring and nothing in it. My circulating library man suggested Society by Mehernosh Kapadia. What a great novel he has penned. I finished it in 2 days. Great work from our Parsee brother. Should not all our Baugs support his novel?. I am sure he will be the best novelist in the years to come.

  • Excleent site for Parsees Yezdi.
    I only came to know of this site when my friend Rusi said that a new Parsee author has written an excellent novel SOCIETY.
    Honest;y i did not believe him that the novel can be so good.
    He asked me the visit this site to read the comments of the readers. So i came on this site. It has excellent information for Parsees. Great work —keep it up. I will certainly read SOCIETY .Good luck Mehernosh .

    • mehernosh kapadia

      All credit to my dear friend Yezdi. Yezdi is a very hard working and a humble man who i know from my college days.

      Thanks to him i am getting exposure through this site.

  • Excellent interview by Mehernosh Kapadia.

    The man is absolutely sincere and his clarity of thoughts were evident.

    I am sure the man is going to go places and we are going to hear a lot about him in the years to come.

    When are the community papers going to recognize him ?

  • Only two words for the novel SOCIETY. EXPECTETION SURPASSED.

    I have known mehernosh since college days when he and Paresh Rawal ( now a famous Hindi film actor) used to perform on stage. Both were excellent actors, but mehernosh also use to write and direct plays also.

    I am so happy to have read his first novel and i can only say once again EXPECTATION SURPASSED.

    We college friends of Narsee Monjee College are proud of you Mehernosh

  • mehernosh kapadia

    Friends ,
    I received from a reader who liked by novel SOCIETY very much, asking how many novels are sold. Honestly i dont know as that only the publisher would know. My reply to him was “The number of copies is not so much a measure of success as the depth with which you touch people. I am at a stage where I would rather touch a smaller number of people at a deeper level than a larger group superficially.”

  • Very well stated Mehernosh

  • mehernosh kapadia

  • Dear Friends,

    I have launched my website with help from Yezdi Tandra.

    http://www.mehernoshkapadia.com

    Also launched is my new novel Crime –A One Way Street as an ebook.

    SYNOPSIS

    This is the story of a bastard son against the backdrop of the gang-wars in Bombay (now Mumbai) in the sixties, seventies and the eighties, who entered the world of crime.
    He forgot the principle of the gangs- Firstly not to fall in love and secondly- interest of the brothers of the gangs come before your beloved. He made the fatal mistake of falling in love and realized that “CRIME IS A ONE WAY STREET.”
    The decisions taken by the father and son in this relationship will shock the readers.
    Through this novel the author is trying to convey firstly that crime never pays.
    Secondly —who ever you are, whatever your religion, from whatever part of the world you come from –one needs and seeks love.
    Lastly — the author has juxtaposed old Hindi film songs in the novel –reminding us how beautiful the words and music were.
    I am looking forward to your support.
    Kind regards,

    mehernosh kapadia
    9870327564

  • I had read SOCIETY the first novel of the author and now his second CRIME –A ONE WAY STREET.
    I really must compliment you sir for you have handled two completely different subjects flawlessly. This shows your versatility as a writer.

  • Both the novels are a lovely read.
    Both the novels keeps the interest till the very end and is fast paced .
    They are better than the recent novel Theodore Boone by John Grisham.

  • Dear Friends,
    If you all are members of facebook see the proposition ( and the comments of others )of Mehernosh Kapadia on Ajmal Kasab —I have a different view.

  • wish you all a very Happy and prosperous new year

  • I WANT YOU TO WATCH MY WIFE novel by Mehernosh Kapadia is faster than a James Bond movie

  • I Want You To Watch My Wife is a real crime thriller. It has all the ingrediens to be made into a fast Hollywood movie with Sean Connery as the investigator.

  • Goodbook, Mehernosh..Dr.Aban gave it to me to read.. Get it edited before the second edition..There were 3 or 4 bloomers which i do not want to mention..Along the banks of the Tapti in Surat there are no bars due to prohibition in Gujarat..From the cricket stadium in Bandra ur view is really restricted..

    Anyway ,a good debut effort..Keep it up

  • Just finished reading SOME WOMEN WILL NEVER CHANGE by Mehernosh Kapadia.
    Nice suspence, sex and romance.
    seems to be inspired by Salman –Aishwarya romance story

  • Congratulations Sir for now your novel SOME WOMWN WILL NEVER CHANGE in paperback after great success as an ebook

  • Mr Mehernosh Kapadia’s novel SOME WOMEN WILL NEVER CHANGE is Salmaan —Aishwarya love story in parts.
    Excellently written and very good suspence.
    Abbas Mastan should make a movie out of this novel.

  • Loved your novel CRIME A ONE WAY STREET.
    In volvement of a man with 3 women so very well handled.
    The best author of the world could not have handled it the way you wrote.
