A Book

The Sundarbans….. India, West Bengal. A labyrinthe of rivers, formed by multiple tiny islands where the tide ebbs and flows and mangroves are the main scenery.  A time travel between past and present. Political turmoil and natural catastrophes.

Piya, a marine biologist, Kanai, a business man, Nilima, head of a Hospital, Nirmal, an idealistic school teacher, Fokir, a Fisherman, Tutul, a wild child, Moyna mother and nurses to be, are all so different yet tide together by fate and nature.

The characters are at the mercy of nature’s ruthless temperament, wild animals and moral ethics that are compromised when strong feelings arise.

It’s not about words, exhaustive talks, more like feeling what the heart needs to do, to connect with a soul or flea the imminent danger of a storm, but  maybe love. An ode to wildlife and ideals.

Amitov Gosh will lead you gracefully through time and space, a tight web of fiction and facts, wars and migration. A novel that will teach you some history of the great India, it’s myths, customs and people. It kept me reading till I was finished.
