Gurmehar creatively uses her words and wisely shifts her stories in parallel to her grandmother's and her mother. The narration is very clear, strikes right through. What I actually liked about the narrative is how there is no air of pretense in her writing (almost as if the character Gullu is a tiny little girl whom you can see from a distance and visualise her movements and her words). The tantrums, the growing up before age the constant thought process of getting to know and finding ways to get her father back are some moving moments which touched me.
You have to read it to know it to be honest. This review is more for the people who get misguided from the negative reviews. It's a big thing to come out in the open and actually face your fears and battle against goons on social media. So much for trolling and hatred yet she still went strong.
Honest criticism of any work is allowed and should be there, but trolling even on Amazon review page just shows how willing we are to put someone down. Shameful. Get up and make a change irrespective of whether you agree with someone or not but at least have the courage to contribute instead of being an anyonmous prick about politics and free speech.
Absolutely loved it. It left me wanting to read and know more about Gurmehar and her family.
The book opens up with the brief encounter of the violent clashes between students of Ramjas College and ABVP, which bought the author Gurmehar Kaur into the limelight.
No, this book is not about violence, or ABVP or hatred. This book is the story of three generations of women in Kaur's family who fought against fate and hatred. This book is about the courage and determination of these women.
The story of the book shuffles between 1947 to 2017. Some of the chapters are written from the perspective of Gurmehar Kaur, her journey from childhood days to now, her vivid memories of her father, the innocence, purity and honesty of thoughts. The other chapters are written from the perspective of her grandmother, who came from Lahore to India after partition, the sudden death of her grandfather, the childhood days of her mother and the story of her parents romance.
This book will give you an insight of the people and the families who loose their loved one for nation. It is about a child who lost her father to war at the age when she was not able to decode the meaning of either war or death. This story is about courage, determination, journey and the sacrifices.
Hats off to the families of those, who are fighting for us on borders.♥️
Although a few chapters fell into disarray, nevertheless I have really liked the book...how much I accept her views form no background to the review, but this book does get me a sneak peek into the life of families, who have members either in the army fighting for the country, or attained martyrdom fighting for the country.
