The author “Ajay Pandey” has a unique, simple and engaging art to connect through his book.
Abhay loses his wife Kanika when their child is too small. He struggles to match pace with his personal and professional life. He finds a babysitter through his boss recommendation. Abhay is in shock and dismay when he discovers the babysitter, Sheetal is a transgender. Though he is not angry on her identity but for the fact she hid her identify from him. Sheetal love for Ayush was that of as cold waters to a thirsty soul.
The author, Ajay Pandey beautifully portrays the struggles and tussle that a transgender faces to lead a normal life in our modern society. Some incidents make you ponder as being a respectable citizen and our duties to society. Language is very simple and a quick read. A bit emotional towards the end and comparison between Krishna’s two mothers Devaki and Yashoda was apt and vivid.
The author has vividly substantiated the character with a touch of mythological fact and leaves a guilt feeling of being blindfolded towards the fake concept and the comfort web weaved among us.
This book gave a new perspective of thinking that transgender person life is they are far beyond dancing and singing on the street. It displayed the other side of them which longs to be a mother, a daughter, a sister, a wife and above all to be acknowledged as a third gender in the society to lead a normal happy life.
My favorite lines are – “ A true hero is one who smiles through silent pain and fights battles nobody knows about”.
Easy to grasp language and flawless writing makes it a single sitting read
