When I heard that Sudha Murty’s new book has released, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I finally read the book in Diwali, my husband gifted it to me and I was so ecstatic.
Being an ardent admirer of Sudha Murty, I knew this book would be special. And I wasn’t wrong. This is a beautiful book which everyone should read.
I found the title to be a bit different and unique, but once you read the book, you understand why she has chosen this specific title. Coming back to reading her books is like going home and having the special ghar ka khana feeling.
This book is a collection of 11 essays which show a different perspective of life. She has highlighted ordinary people but the extraordinary ways in which they make life so special.
Murty has given a personal touch to this book by sharing some funny and some beautiful anecdotes and incidents from her life.
I personally loved the essays ‘A life unwritten’ and ‘Cattle Class’.
Each essay is different from the other but glues you to the book! I finished this book in a single sitting and it left me speechless as usual.
If you loved ‘Wise and Otherwise’ by her, then you will fall in love with this book. It’s a gem. Highly recommended.
