4.0 out of 5 stars Another heartwarming tale
By Anshula @thebookishlawyer on 18 August 2019
The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters written by Balli Kaur Jaswal - Book Review.
We are born into the family we have. It's not a choice made by us, but a choice made for us. But still we spend our entire lives nurturing them, protecting them, loving them selflessly. We'd do anything for them. The book is written along similar lines, the value of family and the importance of culture highlighted in every way possible. The story is of Sita Shergill who dies leaving a last wish for her daughters to fulfill.
And what's that? She writes out a letter, shortly before her death, penning down in specific details of what tasks lies ahead of them in India. This is a heartwarming tale of the three sisters, scattered across the globe leading different lives, coming together to fulfill their mother's last request.
As the story progresses, it's abundantly clear that their lives are not in a place where they had imagined it would be and they are struggling with it. Right before Rajni left for India, her son declared that he's in love and wants to move in with his girlfriend, the only twist is that she's older to him and Rajni doesn't approve of the match. Though this sub-plot is based in Britain, the apprehension, fear and illogical conservativeness of an Indian mother is depicted perfectly. I loved how she thought of fainting in front of her son to win the argument. She detests the idea of her son marrying an older women and destroying his entire life. How beautifully the author brings out the anxiety of an Indian Mom and the inherent orthodox mentality about the age of a woman.
Meanwhile, nothing is perfect with the other two sisters, Jezmeen is a struggling actress desperately trying to claw back to the position where she once stood, before others overshadowed her on the stage. Lastly, Shirina, the obedient child who went for an arranged marriage but her marriage wasn't as rock-solid as she liked to portray in front of others.
Liked the book simply and I'll give it a 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!
By Craartology on 12 July 2019
Balli Kaur Jaswal's latest book is about three sisters Rajni, Jezmeen and Shirina. The Shergill sisters don't get along well and are on a pilgrimage to fulfill their deceased mother's last wishes. Their pilgrimage to India is nothing less than a rollercoaster ride as each sister battles with her inner demons while trying to get along and make the trip happen the way it's planned.
The reader travels to Delhi, Amritsar, Chandigarh along with London and glimpses of Melbourne with the real, flawed and bold characters.
Conservative Indian culture, women's safety in India, adjustments in a relationship, superstition and family feud which cost a great deal of happiness are written with the great ease. They make the reader laugh, feel sad, empathize and ponder over what people make out of their lives when pressurized with such unfortunate factors and their choice of decision and the responsibility that trails.

Nothing but sheer joy and love pour from the heart when the sisters walk the path together for each other and for the better.
This book is highly recommended for it's simplicity and honest characters coated with the author's wit and humourous writing style.
Don't miss it for anything else. Must read.5⭐
