A scary peek into a subculture about which we know nothing, a tour of Vancouver suburbs as alien as Mars, and Dhaliwal makes as believable as your own back yard. Halfway through the book, I started thinking that this book could either be a textbook on how to become a gangster, or this could arnj deter youths from getting into that lifestyle. So far I like the book. Whenever there is violence, it stems from a struggle for power and control.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys gang-crime stories. The entire novel is replete with awkward sentences, awkward and grammatically incorrect sentence structure, and weak prose in dnaliwal.

Unfortunately this was a time when minorities were subjected to discrimination and racism, which Dhaliwal faced firsthand. After I started reading, I rranj, wow, this stuff makes sense. In the violent and ruthless world of Indo—Canadian gangs, Ruby Pandher is on his way up. If you’re interested, the post is here: The teachers have no clue.

My first guess as to why a young boy would join a life of crime is that it may look like the best way to make money in a situation where socially acceptable ways are out of reach.

Ranj Dhaliwal is a Sikh. People were getting killed on a regular basis. They have no interest in any religion. We hear so much about dnaliwal violence here in the US and we’ve been having a serious problem in Boston recently.


I found it to be a powerful story and one that I was very glad to read. So glad I had the opportunity to read it. Although, in the gangster life, its not ever just rainbows and daisies. Until then, keep us up to date on books of this nature through your marvelous reviews. I or dhaoiwal I say the anthropologist in me found this book fascinating!

Daaku: The Gangster’s Life by Dhaliwal Ranj

If anyone has any doubts as to my criticism, read the first few pages of Daaku and you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from. And then I took typing lessons. Deepak Panesar marked it as to-read Jul 07, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. These Punjabi gangsters couldn’t tie a decent turban if they tried!
