Hey all there! Again I have come up with another interesting subject. You must have learned this: B for Ball, B for Bat but I want to take it to another edge, and that is B for Books.
Our country India is full of diversities and the same is reflected in case of the great Indian authors. They literally write the eclectic masterpieces, no matter whatever the subject line is! Be it superstitions, spirituality, religions, rituals, mysteries, myths or anything else, these authors weave their experience and imagination together to build an enchanting storyline and in this way, the zesty people like us get the stuff to satisfy our reading appetite. Following is the list of some mesmerizing fantastic books written by our own Indian authors that you should never miss. Let me begin with my favorite one that emphasizes on womanhood in a compelling way:
The Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Devakurni
Chitra Banerjee has stepped into Draupadi’s shoes and from a woman’s point of view, she has written a totally male dominant epic. She has described the critical emotions of jealousy, hatred, insecurity and love in a way that you would literally feel each and every word of the epic. The Draupadi here depicted by Banerjee I not the deceased and stereotypically weak woman but powerful, strong, energetic and strong. ‘The Palace of Illusions’ celebrates the womanhood, so don’t miss this book.
An Obedient Father by Akhil Sharma
‘An Obedient Father’ is the story of a dishonest, corrupt and ethically insolvent character Ram Karan portrayed spectacularly by Akhil Sharma. Ram Karan sexually molested his own daughter when she was young and still he cannot stop himself. He repeats the same with his granddaughter. His recently widow daughter and her child are forced to move in by this rapacious character. The novel gets its reader through the darkness and inhumanity. It puts the reader in a great discomfort and holds with the storyline till end.
The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh
Written by the great Amitav Ghosh in 2005, ‘The Hungry Tide’ is a story about a young marine biologist. Piyali Roy is the name of character who searches an endangered river dolphin. A Delhi-based businessman Kanai Dutt and a young fisherman Fokir help Piyali in her journey. The whole journey is through Sunderbans.
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
Who doesn’t know Arundhati Roy? She does not need an introduction. She has marveled this book with her simple language and no peacock words. ‘The God of Small Things’ is the first Indian novel that won the Booker Prize and its more than 6 million copies were sold so far. Rahel and Estha who are living with their divorced mother in Kerala are her main protagonists. The book is all about social injustice, relationships and how the things fall apart.
Maximum City: Bombay, Lost and Found by Suketu Mehta
‘Maximum City’ is the best book written ever on one of the favorite metropolises of India. Through this book, Suketu Mehta brings the reader through the complete insider view of Mumbai. The storyline strikes on various realities of the city such as glamorous Bollywood, underworld, poverty, prostitution and most importantly, the dreamers who come to Mumbai to fulfill their unrealistic dreams.
Train to Pakistan by Khushwant Singh
If you have been really influenced by the religions and partitions, ‘Train to Pakistan’ is the best book to read. The story brings each and every dreadful tale you have ever heard about partition. Khushwant Singh has effectively showcased how the religious things become over sensitive in the country of India. At some points while reading this novel, you would feel extremely painful. The story would draw you from the feelings and emotions of a helpless human being.
