Book: A Broken Man
Author: Akash Verma
Publisher: Srishti Publishers & Distributors
After reading this book I couldn’t help but was tempted to read another one from the author. So I directly jumped into his other book “Three Times Loser”, I didn’t wait to write a review about the book because of the feeling (more specifically and urge) to read another one by the author.
#QOTD : What do you think is more important, social status or money?
“A broken man” is a typical romantic tragic story based in India. Our protagonist Krishna is a hardworking Dalit boy and Chhavi, daughter of a politician, falls in love, but then they are separated on the basis of (Yes you guessed it right) social status. One belonging to a lower class and the other one is from a higher class.
This book brings up two of the very deep rooted flaws in Indian society which are- Political Powers’ exploit and Caste based differentiations. Author was able to highlight the issue from his perspective and it was kind of a typical Bollywood movie plot.
The story is quite adventurous and will keep the reader to stick to the end. And the poems in between is one of the highlights and are pretty good. If you are looking for a typical romance read then this is a go to book.
Now why I had to rush to another book by the author- I myself found it a little incomplete like I was satisfied but not completely, I needed something more and it was missing in this one and decided to read another one by the author because I liked the book but due to this little empty space I felt like reading something more.
