My first book by this author. I picked it up based on recommendations on Goodreads. Now will probably be a good time to talk about how much I have come to love Goodreads. Especially the recommendation section. I think I log on to goodreads more than I do on to Facebook, and that is probably a good thing too. The delay in his picking her up changes her life forever, when the catastrophic gas leak poisons the city.
She manages to survive but her marriage does not. That night in the poisonous city, changed her life in more ways than one, and as she later came to realize, in ways that would affect her lifelong. Years later, remarried to Sandeep, and mother to Amar, a young boy who is severely affected by the ill-effects of the gas his mother inhaled, life is tough, but peaceful and she finds happiness with what she has. Until the day, Prakash, her ex-husband re-enters her life.
Prakash, the husband who is the reason her son is so very ill, Prakash who married her for all the wrong reasons, does that Prakash still have a place in her heart? Narrated by 4 charachters, it is a beautifully told story. Emotions, insecurities, expectations and even our cultural baggage which moderates the way people think and behave is brought out really well. A poignant tale, beautifully told.
The title is especially relevant too- through out the story, even at the very end. Fighting the odds, she lives her life, in the best way she can, without the bitterness that might have brwath with the trials she faced. Her husband Sandeep is another character you start feeling for. A book that had me crying.
Goodreads is really good, RM, I especially like the recommendation section. I had created an account a year back or so, but have started using it just recently -and am loving it.

Do read The Sound of Language by Amulya. I am sure you will enjoy it. I borrow them myself, from the library: Not heard of this breatj. Seems a interesting read with so many underlying emotions n feelings! Not really, despite the sadness, it leaves you light.
I am on GoodReads too, but do not log in at all. Loved the sound of this book. Have heard of the author, but not about the books she has written. Vaguely remember reading about her on some book blog. Looks like an interesting book. Will look for it in my library! I too have a goodreads account but not active on it. You are commenting amhlya your WordPress.
