The longer we suppress something mightier the explosion is. Do mind that I am using the term explosion in a metaphorical sense and this is strictly metaphorical only. India is a country of peace and chaos; and mind you, they both remain in this nation at the same time! If you see the Indian subcontinent from the moon, you will believe that ‘God in his heaven and all is right with the world’ with so colourful a combination of people and vivid traditions and ways of life. Nevertheless, once you descend from the height and come to the real India, you will find all the antonyms smiling at the face of your imagination. And to bring the minds to reality, we need some good literature at intervals and this time, I have found one to share with you all – The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter by Shilpa Raj. Her book and the author herself, both are the testimony to hard work and determination! Shilpa, through her memoir, has tried to present to the world what lies beneath the shrouds of aspiration and dreams.
