Consisting of just around 100 pages, this book definitely makes you yearn for more of Tabish’s writing.
Set around the 1990-2000’s the book centers around Mr. Mehrotra,a business royale and the mystery and suspense surrounding hia long term aid Ahmed, who is his right hand in business.
The plot is so intriguing till the very end that you will not want to put the book down. The story is exceptionally well developed and the suspense build-up is commendable. The story is quite different from the ones that we come across nowadays.
I was personally very impressed and attracted by the character of Ahmed,which is rather a complicated one according to my perception. I re-read every other major scenes that included him because the character was made to feel so real.
Anil Mehrotra’s character could’ve been better organized with a bit of trivia of his family. I felt that his back story lacked a little and the author could’ve done justice to him,being the protagonist.
The “gazaar ka halwa” scene and the “graveyard” scene will be my most favorite scenes ever written in a book and for these I gave the book and extra star.
With a simple writing style, and several failed attempts at creating memorable quotation lines that only felt repetitive, Tabish Khair's novel shines only because of the heart-wrenching plot that makes you question humanity and the position of women in the society.
3.5*/5 * , could have been a 4 only if the writing was more polished. A depressing read that I will remember for, well, quite some time now.
