Book Review of - The Day I stopped Drinking Milk- by Sudha Murthy
Sudha Murthy’s books are pleasure to read for its simple story telling and descriptive of the Indian life and culture.
Her Nonfiction books are anecdotes from her life, about the people she knows and meets,and stories from history.
The stories are inspirational, and the simplicity in them is endearing. Her description of the Southern Karnataka towns are delight to read.
I got a special treat few weeks back, when I entered a book shop and saw a new book of hers.
I couldn’t believe to my delight, and in fact asked the book shop whether it really is a new one.
I brought the book thrilled to be able to read a Sudha Murthy writing after long. This Book is filled with anecdotes like her earlier books. The inspiration rags to riches story of a young girl whom she found on a train trip from Mumbai to Bangalore and gave shelter to.
The Story of Rahman,a Muslim who was raised by his Hindu neighbor will shame many a bigots and warm many hearts.
The Anecdote, "The Day I stopped drinking milk "shows her asceticism attitude which really is the Main strength of who she is.
“Ganga’s Ghat" is an awesome story of an old woman who was looking for a purpose in life and found it setting up a bathing facility for her fellow villagers.
“Changing India” is the story of her two different experiences of hearing opinion about India in America.
Rest of the book has other inspirational stories from history and others.
Sudha Murthy books are a must read for every who likes Indian culture, as it is that which reflects mainly in her books.
Read this book and her other one's also, if you haven’t. ***
