The Wheel of Surya Summary ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB A brother and sister's epic journey to independence spans India and England in war and peaceIndia August 1947 Fleeing from their burnt out village as civil war rages in the Punjab M. Synopsis There is massacre in India and war in the world Marvinder and Jaspal live among the violence with their mother Jhoti Alone and faced with the contempt of her husband s spiteful family they wait for Govind to return Govind the father of the children has gone to England where he is meant to be attaining a University degree before heading back to his family in India But war among other things keeps him from returning In the midst of destruction when hatred and intolerance drives Jhoti and her family out of their town they find themselves on a trek to seek out the father that never returned to them in England It is at the train station that the children plan to leave with their mother her humble savings and their grandmother to establish their new lives A terrible scene separates the children from the women however and the kids must face the voyage alone Escaping death captivation and the threat of losing their goods the children meet an old Muslim man who takes the place of their mother and guides them through the next part of their adventure in Bombay The children live and learn from him until Jaspal manages to get a job working on a ship When the time is right the children leave the man to stow away on the ship which is bound to England Caught on board the ship they are in inescapable trouble until a familiar face recognizes them Their remaining time on board they suffer discrimination while they learn the ways of the British which prepares them for their next step In the care of this man a friend of their family friends they stay in England and begin their hunt for Govind with only an outdated letter and an old address to guide them Arriving at the address the trio discover a location that has been destroyed by the war as well as an old girlfriend of Govind who helps send them in the right direction The next location they discover is in fact the home of their father but he is not the only one there The children are received by his other new family and they must all learn to accept each other Disappointment follows as the Jaspal and Marvinder learn that their father is not who he claimed to be He is all they have now though and they must make adjustments School proves difficult because of racial and cultural differences and Jaspal nearly gives up until he is faced with the frightening opportunity to prove himself and to help his father out of a grim situation Peace is finally restored and adaptation is made but all is not over As a displaced survivor of his village Govind if offered land in India When he asks Jaspal if he wanted his land back Jaspal answers yes and leads us to believe that there is a continuation to this beautiful story a return to home and peaceful beginnings Review In each of the three parts to this story before the third person objective narrative begins we are brought into the mood with uotes from the Upanishads Hindu scriptures I found this touch a nice way of setting the tone for each segment The reader is immediately brought into the action which is clearly detailed at a fast pace from the beginning of the first page We are introduced to interesting character at a time of turmoil and instantly begin to understand the conflicts being suffered While the last portion of the book does tend to drop the excitement and pace in comparison to the first it still manages to never get stuck on one non climactic event for too long It could perhaps be shortened or altered to keep the intensity of the beginning of the book or it could remain as is as it s a beautiful story regardless It could very well be intentional that the writer changed the pace throughout the story Perhaps the intention was to keep us feeling the same level of excitement as the main characters had throughout their journey This being considered a children s book comes at a surprise to me The subject matter is very adult and although there are children in the story the messages the author encourages readers to consider is very mature In addition the tragedy seems a bit heavy for children I think of Conjure One Center Of The Sun may be a song in the soundtrack if this book had one The subject of violins bringing peace is comparable to the symbolism of violins to Marvinder This is an item I would have liked to see as a consistent piece throughout the story not just in the beginning in the end Nonetheless this was a beautifully crafted book and a very thoughtful piece to reflect on uotes I Enjoyed P106 Even the gods seemed to be engaged in their own petty power struggles p 99 The train began to move again very very slowly as if overburdened with the weight of humanity
