Dibei
What a wonderful book - captivating story, lyrically written. The richness and generosity of relationships. The richness of Indian history culture and society. The richness of lives well lived through years of social and political turmoil and change. Although not all change is good and some things, in the end, never do change after all, do they? And where else but in a story about India would I learn about the differences between the very European styles of the Baroque and Rococo? This gem of a book is well deserving of the prizes it has won. Highly recommended with great enthusiasm.

While I know everyone is entitled to their opinions, I was surprised to see such a harsh criticism of this wondeful piece of literature which not only tells the personal stories of two women but also captures the time when Emergency was declared by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in India in '75. The impact of the Emergency is viewed through the eyes of Sonali, a civil servant, and Rose, an Englishwoman who has lived in India for more than forty years. I loved it because it covers so much ground and Sahgal is also such a good storyteller. Anyone who knows a little bit about the history of India will know what dark days those were for many people, when democracy collapsed for a while. I think Sahgal does a wonderful job of capturing that darkness and desperation that people felt. I also liked it because it is laced with irony and humor. I highly recommend this book.

This book is the epitome of all books that should have never been written, or to a greater end, books that should have never been read. I was forced to read this book for class and I cannot believe that works this degrading to the world of literature are actually published. The plot is non-existent, it is impossible to tell whose thoughts are being conveyed (or more importantly, why those thoughts are even relevant in the first place). This book is mildly historical, however it isn't anything one could not find in an encyclopedia. Nayantara Sahgal should have been content with being Nehru's niece, a much better legacy than what she has given herself.
