I’ve no quarter for poor use of English in books I read. Yet, I felt that the way this book was written added a certain richness. Very little would I change, because it immerses me deeper into a culturally rich text that exposes you to the traditions, religious differences, difficulties and so much more of the people of India. It’s written as if I were sitting with a friend who was retelling to me a story. That I love!
I’m told that future editions will have some definition footnotes, and those I desperately wanted to save me from having to google traditional terms.
If you want a book that will whisk you away to a foreign land, to read as if it were happening to you. A book from a genuine experience. To love and to weep. This is it. Not an inch of this book was wasted with filler. 100% genuine purposeful beauty.
I truly look forward to future texts by Paromita
