REVIEW Things to leave behind

REVIEW Things to leave behind READ Û Things to leave behind SUMMARY ´ BUILTBYAJ.CO.UK ´ Namita Gokhale R Mall Road for Europeans and their horses and Lower Mall Road ‘for dogs servants and other Indians’ And this is the story of feisty young Tilottama Dutt whose uncle hangs when he protests the reigning order and her daughter Deoki who will confront change as Indians and as women Things to Leave Behind brings alive the romance. I m very glad that I picked up this book randomly at the airport As someone who grew up in the Himalayan hills this book felt like a piece of home I carried with me when traveling so far away from home I am always longing to read good historical fiction written by Indian authors to get a vision of times past and the lives my ancestors might have lived This novel is well researched and well written It really does transport you to the Kumaon hills in the British raj The matters of cast religion nationalism are all discussed delicately through the varied view points of various characters I am surprised to see so few ratings here this book definitely deserves to be read by people The book has it s flaws I particularly felt that the steady rhythm of story gets a bit lost in the last uarter or so of the book where too many things start happening too uickly And over the course of the book some characters and their plotlines fail to find their place in the bigger picture Hence a 45 rating instead of a 55 I would still recommend this book highly and would be on the lookout for other works by Namita Gokhale We are always in a need of and better Indian authors

SUMMARY ´ BUILTBYAJ.CO.UK ´ Namita Gokhale

REVIEW Things to leave behind READ Û Things to leave behind SUMMARY ´ BUILTBYAJ.CO.UK ´ Namita Gokhale A rich panoramic historical novel shows you Kumaon and the Raj as you have never seen themIt is 1856 in picturesue Kumaon History has already begun its steady march Six native women clad in black and scarlet pichauras huddle around Naineetal Lake attempting to cleanse it of threatening new influences For these are the days of Uppe. Based in hills of kumaon and spanning three generations of Indians and their British rulers it should have been pleasantly enjoyable Instead it managed to irk me by meandering aimlessly A description would commence and then be left abruptly with no correlation to the story There are puerile repetitions and stereotypical simplifications There is no story as such however book talks of a royal physician his wife his nephew nephew s wife nephew s crush who is British wife s mother and father who is a surveyor mother s uncle and aunt and her mother I know you can t make any sense Neither could I Going by the pedigreed appreciations on the jacket it s entirely my fault that I couldn t enjoy the book
