The writing is powerful because it is thoughtful and authentic. I didn't feel like I was being preached to, sold to or coerced. The women in these stories face enormous challenges and in my mind are heros and champions of the human spirit. They face tremendous adversity and yet they meet the challenges and strive to overcome them for themselves and their children. The stories reveal some hard truths about the human condition and the horrible things we do or let happen to each other but it also shares some truths about our potential to be amazing and do great things. The setting is India but the scope of the lessons and insights for me were much bigger.
We can and have to do a better job caring for, respecting and helping each other!
It's a powerful story about a side of Indian life that most outsiders are unaware of.
I especially enjoyed reading about her own journey of personal growth, and was left wanting to know how a similar journey might develop for the young women at Kranti. Perhaps we will find out in her next book? Either way, no matter what she chooses to write about next, we can be certain that Seervai has a promising and exciting literary career ahead of her!
