This book or less defined a phase of my reading life I used to walk to my school reading this book, and naturally,would hit a stone on the road or a tree and hurt myself.I read this when I was in eighth standard and used to have such fond memories of Dasan as if I had grown up with him I am reminded of him even now, when I see on someone, that curly hair, falling onto the right eye,those small eyes which hide a naughty smileThat is how I think of dasan Now when I look back, I don t really see w [...]

    6. We are so used to stories and historical accords of European colonization and the atrocities they inflict upon the natives Well, this book says the story of now union territory Mah , which was previously a French colony and an ace example of communal harmony and cultural assimilation post colonization French settled here along with the natives, getting mixed with culture and believes, raising their generations It s really interesting and refreshing to read on life at Mah , in its innocence and i [...]

    8. loved the story wasted some time trying to connect the locations to the familiar places in Mahe and took a while to adjust to the French words used.was a great experience touched my heart at some point superb description of different types of people then now loved the way it explored the history of a place through the lives of its peopled particularly one or two families who might have played a huge role in them.

    12. While on holidays to Kerala last month, with nonstop rain in the background, I happened to re read this amazing work, some 20 years after I first read it as a school boy Beautiful I found this work amazing, and on the plus side it brought back memories of my own childhood days when I first read the book Also it s thought provoking in a way that it made me wonder who all lived around what I now call my village some hundred years ago, what would have been their stories had someone recorded them

    13. The booked that touched my heart But can t say I liked it to the core It is a tragedy which was written while there was no scope for tragedy in the story Why the male protagonist behaved in the way he behaved in the later part of the story is a little difficult to comprehend This story is being highlighted as a great story only bec it is a tragedy.

    14. Beautifully captures the essence of life of MAHE during the transition phase of independence Sketches of pre independent life and the pleasures and pains of foreign rule are very well caricatured Again it starts looking like a saga, but comes to logical end May be the writer is himself a communist, hence the typical mannerisms of a communists are visible in his characters.
