India Both are forced into the past to confront their dreams and losses and to explore the love that binds mothers and daughters everywhere From the Trade Paperback editi. I am obsessed with Indian authors The book was interesting maybe not an unputdownable oneI couldn t find any other word that conveys the feeling but worth giving a shot It is a cliched plot but that shouldn t stop you from picking it up and reading till the end There wasn t an element of surprise or novelty only familiarity That made it easier to read Like comfort food or clothing Indian women always have an air of mystery around them I do not know if the perception of Westerners is different but I would say most Indian women carry some secrets with them to their grave randomthoughts

Tamarind Woman

A beautiful and brilliant portrait of two generations of women Set in India’s railway colonies this is the story of Kamini and her mother Saroja nicknamed Tamarind Mem. I picked up this book because I wanted a rich way of exploring parent child relationships in a South Asian context It s well written I guess and not without some worthwhile reflections But you have to dig very very deep past a lot of ugliness in traditional Indian culture to find them And I couldn t be arsed to do soSo to me the book is needlessly depressing and contains no positive messages It s along the lines of Hey life may suck and be loveless and suffocating for women but at least you can write beautifully about the sadness that comes with it intermingled with the smell of jasmines Nope Not my thingA book in the same genre that fared much better for me was A Cycle of the Moon It s about familial relationships than parent child ones and it conveys very worthwhile messages in an understated way without taking itself too seriously What I loved about that book especially now that I m comparing it to Tamarind Mem is that it is so unapologetic and doesn t stumble over itself trying to explain the norms to a non Indian It s a refreshing change from the popular Innocent Indian women as helpless victims narrative

Due to her sour tongue While in Canada beginning her graduate studies Kamini receives a postcard from her mother saying she has sold their home and is travelling through. A 35 really The first half of the book was a tedious read because it was from a child s perspective and as such was daunting However it picked up its pace when the Memsahib started her tale I related better to her experiences her emotions because I have always wondered about arranged marriages and the underlying effects which for me in this book some light was shed Not a bad read

    I really enjoyed the narrative thread of this novel I liked reading from the daughter's perspective Kamini and then from the mother's Saroya It reminded that though you think you know someone and how they feel in reality we only know pieces of that person and their story You have to listen with your heart and to want to know the story in o

    I really enjoyed the story about family life on the Indian railway but I had a few issues with the story It took me a while to realize that the novel was chronological with breaks for the narrator's present interactions with other characters I also missed the chapters but that was for my own personal convenience to know when to take a break Badami offers two sections one narrated from Kamani's perspective and another fro
