“The Old Man and His God” Book Review

Living In Fiction

The Old Man And His GodAuthor: Sudha Murty

Publisher: Penguin

Number of Pages: 131

“The Old Man and His God: Discovering the Spirit of India” by Sudha Murty is a collection of short stories from Sudha Murty’s life including her time as a philanthropist. These are non-fictional tales of times she has spent with her family, friends, colleagues, students, people she has met as a part of her activities as a social worker.

During this time she has varied experiences. These experiences surprised her, saddened her, made her happy.. but most of all enriched her in a way no book or tutoring ever can. Reading this book was a small attempt from my end to absorb a bit of it from her!

Each and every one of us go through such experiences, touching innumerable lives throughout our lives and each meeting, each departure writes a new story. Most of these get lost in time but…

“The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk” Book Review

Living In Fiction

PicsArt_03-15-08.45.22

Life is like a beautiful garden and each encounter/experience is one of the components that make up this garden. When you look around, you see a dash of colours.. the reds, the pinks, yellows, white and an array of greens to soothe your eyes. You notice the beautiful flowers, the pretty lush leaves, but what you fail to notice is the weeds and thorns.. Nevertheless, they are there and when you get too close to the flowers you feel their presence too. The wonderful diversity that held your gaze from afar made everything look pretty and while it made it clear that variations and diversity is what made it so beautiful, a close encounter taught the harsh truth that not only are all components different from each other but there are good ones and bad ones as well.
