The tone of the narration turns serious and tragic as the child grows up. One can forecast what will happen but it is still tragic when it happens. The last chapters can make your heart cringe and feel sad for the society. A book which has a flavor of friendship, love, parenting and dreams is a great debut by the author.
The only cons which one can feel are some unanswered questions, like what was the exactly cooked up story of Himmat? Why no one questioned on Himmat’s saving account status and what happened to their own house in the climax? But the book still works well and the presentation of book is amazing. One gets immediately attached to the narrator as he is so innocent. The supporting characters are developed too and the story is fine paced. All the best to the author in future, I hope he excels to great heights with each book and gets a big audience,
Written in a very simple manner, the book is sarcastic and filled with a lot of innocence as well. There are also lessons to learn and chapters where you would emotionally break down.
It is the story of a cobber's son who is born in immense poverty. He is brought up with a constant teaching of fears, hopes, and respect.
The book shows a lot about middle class and lower middle calss habits. It satirically talks about the difference between the two classes and how the bureaucracy doesnt even bother to serve the lower class.
There are 3 big teachings in the book thqt i learned.
1. It talks about the fears that we middle class people have within us. This fear stops us from moving ahead in life.
2. It talks about hope. How we always rely on hope and devine faith even when someone else does wrong to us. It shows how we are crippled with it.
3. It talks about dreams. And how persistent a dreamer should remain. It also shows how hardships occur in between but, why we shouldnt stoo in between.
The book teacjes about making your own way up the ladder in society. It is in itself a big question to the society we are living in and the law and system that protects us. And i feel justified that it is written to the Prime Minister. Because whatever the book talks is a matter of national debate and notice.
There are real life incidents like The Hashimpura case too. All in all, this is a worth read. I am glad there are writers coming up who have such strong observation and ability of storytelling. Look ahead for what's next to come.
The central character of the book is a cobbler's son. He lives in a village, stays in a hut, his parents have a buffalo, and they are servants to a minister.
Just imagine, how long has it been that we read something of this kind. This book was a total refreshment to me,fZZZZ while I was reading about corporate tales and stories of millionaires and billioniars.
Thanks book talks about the lower middle class in a nation like India where they are always suppressed. There is no voice to the lower middle class in India and this book speaks of it in a very beautiful manner.
This story is not driven around a love story plot, instead there is love in the story. It gives you everything to taste and x while the story keeps getting stronger with each turn of page.
The beginning Is filled with innocence. His childhood, his manners, his lessons, his dreams and his freedom and servanthood.
But as the story progresses the book takes on to communal tragedies and personal issues. It made me cry a lot to the helplessness that it talks about of people and the character.
I loved the book to it's core. Once I had begun reading it, I put it down on day 2 after finishing it. Will try to read again sometime... It had everything.
Recommended above personal TBRs.
