ShantaramMy mother-in-law recommended me to read ShantaramShantaram
by Gregory David Roberts. I’m glad I did. I was born and brought up in India but I had no idea about the India portrayed in this novel.

I have seen “foreigners” in India but never thought that they could be living in India in this way and never expected them to know Hindi. Also, it gave me a perspective into the lives of slum dwellers. Also, I could never imagine about people committing crime to have consciousness. I never imagined them to delve so much in the purpose of life or to be seeking God at all.

My toddler would often suggest that I should let him play outside so that I can read my book. He could tell that I was hooked to this book.
