Usually I do not want to give less than three stars even to bad books Writing books is not an easy thing And this is true even for books They demand the same kind of effort energy and commitment that great doThis is one of the most annoying books that I have read in recent times The plot situations even dialogues feel unreal and contrived Only because someone knows English and can string sentences together should not jump to fiction writing I am not aware of Hariharan s other writings but this book does not speak to me at all It is like an atheist person writing a novel only to recommend atheismIt seems to me that she has the right kind of ideas about politics religion and Indian academia and an easy access to Delhi s elite She knows what is going on in Delhi how things unfold and so forth in middle class households what scares them what moves them and how they negotiate with life in general in ever changing political scenarios She uses all this to write a novel Of course there are no limitations in literature one can write about anything However the book often feels like journalism It seems like the writer is not really telling us a story but she has an agenda and this agenda takes over the story I am sure that the writer instead of writing this novel could have written academic essays on history caste and contemporary culture and politics The novel is centered on an upper caste mild mannered liberal university professor of History He writes about a medieval poet Basava who fought against caste This angers Hindu fundamentalists including some faculty members who oppose his writing On a personal front he goes through an unexpected phase in his life He feels attracted to a young student while his wife is away for a few weeks All this creates disharmony in his lifeAs I went through the novel I saw the activist in Hariharan on each page The only part I liked about the book was the historical component for instance when she tells us the story of the reformist poet Basava I guess I would have much preferred to read an essay on Basava by her than a novel Even though one can admire her activism and politics one cannot appreciate these concerns if they siege the story
