Looking for protection from being beaten by nuns, priests, and aunts, who are all doing this for the good of his soul, he turns to dreams of Heaven .

. . which become redefined from the Heaven of a bearded white God to the Heaven that is America, the land of milk, honey, and Campbells Cream of Chicken Soup.The unstoppable copious funniness is Shandian, said a major newspaper review of this novel, which includes the childhood first half of The Revised Kama Sutra, two new chapters, and a new epilogue.

Being mainly about an Indian childhood, this adaptation of the widely praised and published novel, The Revised Kama Sutra, is chaster (far fewer four-letter words or sexual thoughts) and more compact than the novel it was derived from, and may be more suitable for readers who are uncomfortable with sexual material.The Telegraph, a major Indian newspaper, described One Little Indian as a surprisingly delightful novel by a genuinely irreverent Indian from Mangalore, a town that was once a net exporter of nuns, nuts and tiles.

Crastas raunchiness is a mix of Khushwant Singh and Laurence Sterne. The unstoppably copious funniness is Shandian. It is a pity that, apart from Rushdie, the official Indo-Anglian tone is lugubrious rather than hilarious. Writers like Crasta do not fit this priggish mould, and hence remain obscure.
