The book is about a homeless man and a social worker whose stories intertwine. The many social issues troubling India are depicted in simple language. I read the book within 2-3 days, as I found it hard to put down once I started. I was unaware of the condition of the Miya Muslims before reading this book.
The issues covered in the book were serious but they were related by the author in a matter-of-fact way. There was sadness and pain, but there were also positive outcomes. The author has researched the locations where the story takes place, as well as the issues being faced by Miya Muslims, women and migrants to cities very well.
Although the title made it clear what was going to happen to the homeless man, yet the ending of the book was still a surprise and left an impression on the reader.
Suggested improvements: The book needs more editing; hoping that a revised edition will take care of the spelling and grammatical errors.
Looking forward to many more great stories from Paromita !!
