4.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing story with an unexpected ending !!, 27 May 2015
This review is from: Shamsuddin’s Grave: The Story of a Homeless (Paperback)

The book is about a homeless man and a social worker whose stories intertwine. The many social issues troubling India are depicted in simple language. I read the book within 2-3 days, as I found it hard to put down once I started. I was unaware of the condition of the Miya Muslims before reading this book.

The issues covered in the book were serious but they were related by the author in a matter-of-fact way. There was sadness and pain, but there were also positive outcomes. The author has researched the locations where the story takes place, as well as the issues being faced by Miya Muslims, women and migrants to cities very well. Read more
