Simple soul searching
This is 53 pages of pure soul searching. This book really touches the heart. Written in effortless English, it is an inspiring read... an interesting take on some of the most common situations in everyday Indian life. Jalebi Ink
Straightforward yet sensitive
It’s the story of the dilemmas faced by single parents (how to deal with the missing half) and kids with single parents. Mini Shrinivasan deals with it in a straightforward, no-nonsense yet sensitive way. Neat and sparse, the book (which won the Sahitya Akademi Bal Sahitya Puraskar 2010) is a simple read about how, often, life is not what we’d imagined it to be, and we must make the best of whatever it has on offer and move on. It can... be consumed in a single gulp like a ‘roshogulla’. Goodbooks.in
