Format: Kindle Edition
Sohan Koonar is a fresh name in historical fiction authorship. His debut novel about the destiny of an exceptionally gifted 'untouchable' youth, born into the awakening world of pre-war India, gives readers an open window into one of the largest social evolutions of the modern era. A journey that explores the true meaning of race, clan, caste, religion, mysticism and fate with a delicate touch and a soothing voice.

Unlike other contemporary authors, Koonar leaves room for readers to make their own decisions about the power and morality of complex matters. A fictional protagonist painted as a transparent layer over the beautiful tapestry of Indian history, Karam is a character carefully crafted to reveal the nuanced conflict that exists between the tradition of rural mysticism and the bright lights of urban science. His journey through the infancy of a modern Indian educational system, and his eventual realization that great competence also comes with a duty of self-sacrifice, gives this story heart and speaks to the courage of people willing to change the world through their own daily deeds.

In Koonar's skilled hands the prejudices we all struggle to reject are illuminated without shame or penalty. Instead, Koonar shows his own inherent belief in the best of humanity by asking questions of his audience without spoon-feeding us the answers. The full spectrum, from modern reason to a traditional belief in divine forces, is well-represented and readers are asked to examine their own views with a sense of humility that is uncommon in most open debate. Some self-analysis is best reserved for the kind of private exploration that fits perfectly into the realm of a very good book by an exciting new author.
