Bahir is a book about Survival. Survival is a big and a difficult term to express; this book has been the paragon to do this arduous and challenging task. The book begins with the fateful birth of our protagonist, Sawera, who like the light of dawn brought good luck to her family during the initial years. As she grew and landed into the jaws of confusing teenage years, she started discovering her new found femininity which always delighted her but during these eventful years the lady luck hid behind the cloud for her which made her get dogged by misfortunes and adversity. Raised in Saudi Arabia, the lack of shine of dame fortune on her landed her with an abusive husband in Pakistan, who did nothing but satiate his lust by exploiting her with no shame and humiliation. Finally managing to get back to Saudi, hoping to get free from the shackles, she, somehow was able to get God bestow the talent of beautifying people, on her, which was one of the only things she was grateful for. Having 4 children to keep care of and the constant bullying, abusing and manhandling she suffered was enough to break anyone’s spirits and to take away their dreams and the life they had hoped for, All the hardships were enough to have a person emotionally beaten down to the point where they go from being who they were to someone who has lost all hopes but our protagonist wasn’t the one to get beaten down. After falling again and again, she rose back onto her feet with her indomitable courage and unshakeable hope. In her earnest endeavor, she became an epitome of sacrifice who promised a new hope for women like her.
The writing style of the author is commendable and one cannot stop themselves from calling this book a gripping page turner which makes the today’s generation question the morals of the society. In its own raw and vulnerable form, this gem of a book will never let you down. Would recommend to all!
Bahir is a brutally honest account of struggles and survival of Sawera. A girl who is disappointed by everyone in her life; faces turmoil and unfortunate events in every stage of life; still manages to fight and survives. The author doesn’t sugar coat anything and narrates the hardships faced by Sawera very bluntly. The kind of misfortunes thrown at the protagonist are enough to break anyone’s spirit but she fights back and survives everytime. It’s an intense and cynical plot where we see how society, culture and so called family honor ruins her life. Even though the protagonist is a Muslim girl from Pakistan, this is a story of many more, not limited by their religion or country. I, myself, came across a fighter like her and was truly inspired.
Characters are limited but well developed which makes it easy to focus and create an impact in reader’s mind. Narration is really brave and brings out the struggles faced by Sawera. You will feel like you know Sawera and everytime she is about to commit a mistake or make a wrong choice, you will feel like reaching out to her and warn. She is REAL. You will feel sad for her; you will get angry on her actions.
From first chapter itself, author manages to grab your attention and would keep it till the very end. It is a page turner which will keep you hooked. Ending might seem a little abrupt but epilogue will answer your questions.
Overall, an engaging read which gives out a strong message – Past doesn’t matter and can’t stop you from having a beautiful future. You can always start fresh. This is something I strongly believe in. Highly recommended!
