The Tattoo on his Breast : A Short review
Reading Time: 2 minutes read
THE Tattoo On My Breast is a Love story based in Pre Independence era of Undivided Bharat, taking the climax to post independence. The Story is set against the background of WWII & quit India Movement A book which kept me awake till wee hours of morning.
It’s a kaleidoscope of Human relations between generations, gender, religion, politics & above all driven by Love. The cultural background of Sindhis, in Sindh. Story is so passionately woven like a spider’s web where every character entangles you till you reach the climax of the story.
Sadhana’s confused heart is so relatable….Dada’s leadership & respect in the family. Rehman & Anil’s true love for Sadhana….each & every family member of Sadhana has relatable character for keeping up the scale of story…but what broke my HEART was NILOFER’s Destiny, no Woman deserves this!!!
Being a Sindhi & having heard my Pre Independence stories from my Grandfather ( who was a migrant from Sindh in 1947), the plot connected so well with me. The beauty of Sindhi words used, at various points of conversation with the food, is so nostalgic!
The book is recommended for readers who are interested in pre independence stories.
Ravi Rai’s 1st book & I must say, he has penned from core of his heart.
