    1. काशीनाथ सिंह का उपन्यास 'काशी का अस्सी' काशी का चित्रण नहीं है बल्कि इसे पढ़ना ऐसा है कि जैसे काशी को जी रहे हों | मैं अभी तक अस्सी गया तो नहीं हूँ लेकिन ऐसा लगता है कि एक औपन्यासिक यात्रा कर आया | इ [...]

    2. Deserves a re-read. After a good beginning, was disappointed by too much of political talks. Moreover there was no continuity whatsoever. Its a collection of 5 stories, each story in itself filled with loads of random thoughts and conversations.Let go of continuity and plot, and started reading like I was standing on crossroads of Assi Ghaat, observing and interacting with its people. And that's where the book does full justice. It takes you to Kashi ka Assi :)

    3. सबसे खूबसूरत भाषा वो होती है जो रोज़ बोल चाल में इस्तेमाल हो। यही भाषा का मानवीय रूप होता है। काशीनाथ सिंह ने इसी भाषा को उठाया है और लिख डाला है। इस भाषा के साथ है बनारस खासकर अस्सी। वो बनारस जो [...]

    4. काशी के अश्शी घाट के,फुरसतिये और हंसोड़ माहौल का पूरा देशी चित्रण है इस उपन्यास में,देशी मने गाली जिसमे प्रेम भी है,खिचाई जिसमें अपनत्व का आनंद है,बनारस की वह संस्कृति जो आधुनिकता में कहीं खोती [...]

    5. I remember a story a senior in BHU told me of his encounter with a Sadhu on the streets of Banaras. The story may be apocryphal but it went like this. Our senior was zooming along a street on his bike when he noticed a sadhu with a trishul in his hand walking in the middle of the street. As is the wont of the young, he honked at him hoping the sadhu would move aside. The sadhu turned around, pointed his trishul in the direction of the bike and stood there. The senior had to break hard and manage [...]

    6. To explore more hindi literature I did some research. So someone suggested this book. I bought it and read in a week. There is no storyline but the use of language and typical words and phrases is kernel of the book. Initially I felt offended by the use of language but after some pages I got used to it and craved for more. There are many axioms used which are apposite. I like to learn axioms of different regional language so this book taught me a lot. But because there is no story line this feel [...]

    7. In school i once read about Stephen Leacock's Nonsense Novels.That is the first thing that came to mind while reading it. No story, just a series of anecdotes, thoughts none lengthier than 2 pages. The second thing i m reminded of is Vishal Bharadwaj's Omkara. The foulest language used, though it blends very well with the unrestrained and ruthless satire.The first half races by (5/5) but the second half is mediocre or decent at best. Still a recommended read.

    8. The book would never win a Sahitya Akademi Award but it is more monumental than any other book on the same topic. It reports from the ground about what the man of Assi Ghat thinks about the head honchos in Delhi and elsewhere. It is a common man's silent fight against the might of capitalism. Kashinath Singh presents it in an unfiltered language that is very local and flavourful. A masterpiece.

    9. "मोहल्ला अस्सी" ( फ़िल्म) जो कि काशीनाथ सिंह के उपन्यास "काशी का अस्सी" के आधार पर बनी थी, सेंसर बोर्ड द्वारा नही रिलीज़ होने दिया गया। लोगो ने फिर भी फ़िल्म को देखा और सराहा । फ़िल्म देखकर पहली बार मुझ [...]

    10. सबसे पहले टिप्पणी उन लोगों के लिए जो क्षुब्ध हैं इस इस उपन्यास की "असन्सदिय" भाषा से | सच है कि हम ऐसी गालियों से लैस भाषा अपने घर में नही बोलते | पर सच ये भी है कि जिन चौक-चौराहों का ज़िक्र यहाँ हुआ [...]

    11. few pages into this novel and I was determined enough to visit the ASSI in future. I have always been fond of the language of purvnchal (east UP and BIHAR). This book represented the characters, their background, their lives, their thought process all in all everything is weaved through Assi. after a long time and few novels it happened that I was so immersed in the story that I was brought to tears at the climax. I am upset at how things turned out in the end. there is nothing left in assi as i [...]

    12. Back to the rootsRead something after a long time You'll realise that we have so much to cherish but still we choose to run after things which even if we get, won't enjoy as much as we thought. My father suggested me to read this. If you have some idea about UP politics of late 90's and especially Varanasi, you're gonna enjoy this a lot

    13. थोड़ी मुश्किल हुई पढ़ने में, अस्सी के सही दर्शनबहुत दिनों बाद हिंदी पढ़ा इसलिए पढ़ने में दिक्कत आई।किताब बिल्कुल खड़ी पुरवइया हिंदी में हैं।Description of Assi Ghat was very true to the core.

    14. It was so good, that in some places I didn't even get it, and still loved it.Kashinath Singh's language is not his language. It's not a writer's language. It's the language of people, and I'm assuming here it's the language of the city and the people he's talking about because the way he has described the city and its people, there is no reason to believe otherwise.Other than that, the only thing negative about book is that it's a little broken, as in, it doesn't seem to move in one straight lin [...]

    15. Good time pass book.Lots of obscenities,a bit dated otherwise brilliant book a good satirendle edition is all right but you cannot read it on Mac,or cloud reader.

    16. Awesome book. Must read for someone who wants to know about Varanasi, its much talked about culture and also disappearance of the same. The starting was funny, and i was thinking of it as some satirical work as done previously by Shrilal Shukl and Harishankar Parsai. But it was much more than that. It's hilarious, and tragic at the same time. Hard hitting sequences, deep analysis of thoughts and values of the ones who reside there and also of the ones who resided. Tanni Guru, Gaya Singh, Ramji R [...]

    17. Dr. Kashinath Singh's novel Kashi ka assi is definitely one of the best works written in the Hindi language. Some readers might be a little put off by the language but it is the authors refusal to tone down the language that gives the book the lived in feel. You feel like you are part of the gang that sits at the tea stall in the evening discussing the political happenings. The author includes the Hindu-Muslim riots in the narrative with ease and also brings forth the confusion that characterize [...]

    18. 'काशी का अस्सी' बहुत ही बेहतरीन किताब है। बहुत साल पहले लिखी किताब होने के बावजूद आज भी उतनी ही प्रस्तुत है। अस्सी की राजकारण के बारे में टिप्पणी आज भी उतनी ही सच है। जैसे की अस्सी की सैर कर आये व [...]

    19. Yatharth. Bolchal me sahajta se aane wali galiyon me kuchch bholapan aur kuchch masti bhari mithas bhi haihli bar kisi lekhan me inka itna behtareen prayog hua hai. ek sawal jehan me aata hai ki sare patra astitva me hain ya kuchch kalpanik bhi hain?

    20. ये एक उपन्यास नही,ये एक जीवनशैली है। बनारसी रंग में रंगी हुई अल्हड़ भाषा इस 'जीवनशैली' से अलग किस्म की घनिष्ठता का अनुभव कराती है। इस कथा संकलन सने कुछ किया ना किया हो,हम सब के मुह पे करारा तमाचा ज़ [...]

    21. ज़िन्दगी और जिंदादिली से परिपूर्ण यह उपन्यास मेरे अब तक के पढ़े गए उपन्यासों से एक दम अलग था. इस उपन्यास की भाषा शैली अदभुत है. उपन्यास में पारंपरिक गालियाँ प्रचुर मात्र में हैं जो उत्तर प्रदेश [...]

    22. A fantastic chronicle of times and how they are changing, not always for good. A book to be referred to every 6 months and be amazed at!

    23. A great book on the culture of Benares for those who love to read hindi too!Beware, it's full of expletives.

    24. A must read book to understand the change India is going through - detailed review here - anureviews/kashi-ka-as
