A Breath of Fresh Air….

A Breath of Fresh Air

by

Amulya Malladi

Wow

Where to begin.

as you read it is as if you are sitting with a person from India and you can hear his/her voice in your head as you read

the tragedy lies in that the Bhopal Gas Tragedy….Happened( no really….it happened, this part of the story is historically accurate!)

this video shows the aftermath

Back to the book,

Through her writing,

Amulya makes it clear that

dysfunctional families are universal

that loving your child so much you would do anything to cure them is also universal

with a rawness I’ve not seen in other books

she deals with life, death, betrayal, and forgiveness.

The story is one

told in different voices

each chapter headed with whose side of the story is being told

Anjali: The divorced/remarried school teacher, mother of a child affected at birth because of the incident at Bhopal

SanDeep: The Second Husband, mild, calm, accepting,  the father of the child affected at birth/Bhopal

Prakash: The first husband, undergoes transformation(no plot spoilers so you’ll have to read to find out more about him)

This book transcends boundaries, international, racial, economical.

It is descriptive, and beautiful,

enough said?

Go buy!
