A Place For Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza (must Read )
Its very rare to find such book which tells a reader, so minutely about someone’s spiritual journey, every line is so meaningful and every emotion is felt before writing, every word is cherished and she clearly lived this book before bringing it to this world. I am deeply touched by how she defined such complex relationships and diverse Human Nature
A Fine Family by Gurcharan Das (must Read )
Stories of partition have always touched me whether its ‘Toba Tek Singh’ by Manto or ‘Train to Pakistan’ by Khushwant Singh or Gulzars Short stories. All these tragedies are similar to the story of my grandfather who left his Home and farms in Pakistan and came to India, he also told me how his entire savings were taken during the journey.
While reading this book, I felt the pain of the countless women who were physically abused, these incidents prove that deep down every individual is filled with FILTH and they exercise their power when they know they will not punished.
I feel “Its not the MORALS that is stopping people from doing the wrong thing but the FEAR of LAW”
(Read Book) Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
This book is equally impactful as his other book ‘Remains of the day’ but if I compare then I will say remains of the day is better. World is cruel and corrupt in both the books but in this one story appears fictional, he did justice again in the end by explaining many new aspects of the same incidents. He surely has alot to give and his writings define his intellect.
Although Movie based on this book involve stars like Keira Knightley & Carry Mulligan still I will not recommend that ! I guess details of incidents and characters is required to understand his work.
(Read Book) Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman
This book is remarkable, the way he expressed love in its purest form (‘even if its for the same gender’, i apologize to mention it but my intent is just to point out that “it was little difficult for me to Imagine) and also shown the obsessive and physical side along with a very strong desire to preserve all the memories. Please don’t consider movie as substitute because its not half as good as the book.
Those of us who are looking for hope may not find it in this book, it might prepare you for harsh realities of life.
(Read Poems) Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.
it’s not easy to write such bold views and raise voice against such immoral acts. I don’t read poems but I say go for this one, u will not regret it
Watch Movie) Siddhartha(1972)
Based on the book written by Hermann Hesse, the book is one of the best spiritual books ever written and movie is equally good because of the Indianism. These days people lack patience for reading so i say go for the Movie, i guess message is way bigger than the medium.
