This book by means of Jhumpa Lahiri, a set of brief stories, and winner of the pretty coveted Pullitzer Prize, though no longer THE nice works by using an Indian author, sure ranks among the best.

Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun. Books are not only written to educate, they are written for leisure and even for the metamorphosis of the soul.There are a hundred categories to choose from when it comes to books.
Poor story line.

Being extremely acquainted with Indian cinematography and screenplays, I realize that Indians are inclined to over stressing o...Read More

Feb 06, 2017 07:30 PMRead

Jhumpa Lahiri is my all time favourite writers. She always hit the pain of the normal society and she has the ability to reach the targeted views of the people. Jhumpa's stories explore the spiritual fissures opened up bu the cultural dissonance of our modern age and this is the best part of the...Read More

The problem with most diaspora writers is that they do very little to write beyond their own realm of experience. One might say its an advantage , however, since writing about something one is familiar about brings in a personal perspective, which is interesting, to say the least.How much of...Read More
