A journey of a man’s trial called life from nothing to everything and once again a dissolving into a cipher. A tale of a country, a record of a city. The waves of an ocean splashing its cooling waters to enliven a life and then receding into a low tide leaving everything dry and waiting. A beautiful story woven around reality. Enigmatic moments in lives associated with Mumbai which was once upon a time Bombay. The building and the breaking of a country. The heavenly forgiveness of mankind to his monstrously flesh tearing, blood sucking brother.
Amidst all the chaos of war, the victory of freedom. Beautifully woven. A must read.
I would really want to meet the hero whose birth and death are so majestically simple. It’s truly a story of a great hero who was a simple man.
