This is the first book Iv’e read that has been written by a journalist, a friend,a wife,a daughter,a sister,an editor,a painter and a theater director. It touches all the right notes and sets you off to another dimension, where you think and remember similar moments that you have witnessed or experienced in your own personal life. Purva is not afraid of bring out the “real stories”, the real struggles, the real emotions and the unreal horrors of what different people go through in life.
This books gives you a new perspective on people, on life and love, on sacrifices, challenges and struggles. It makes you think, it makes you feel and it makes you “remember”. A must buy for everyone who has ever stayed, visited or heard of India.
This is the kind of book you can buy for yourself, as a gift, for your mother, grandmother, best friend, spouse or colleague… everyone will find a little bit of themselves in one or the other chapter. An easy read, superb stories and excellent flow.

Purva, however, has done a fabulous job with 'The trees told me so.' And though I found myself wanting more at the end of each tale, there was a sense of closure in all of them.
The stories revolve around multiple themes- family, society, addiction, love and even rape. You get to soak in a variety emotions from nostalgia that tickles your tummy warmly to angst that questions, "Why why why?". She has a knack for punch lines. Some of my favorites:
"My pot of gold is full and the women are spent. But we are neither exhausted nor content. We wake up thirst, imagining the adventures that lie ahead."
"Standing there in the miasma of rickety buildings and damp love, I tasted passion for the first time. It was bitter, stark, powerful and overwhelming. It was dark and pure, just like the night."
I highly recommend this book. It is both a light and meaningful read.
