Foreign : A Novel (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.399

A woman must travel back to India to find her son who has gone to find his father, in a village where every eight hours a farmer commits suicide in Foreign, Sonora Jha's debut novel about poverty and suicides among farmers in India.

Summary of the Book

Katya Misra's quiet academic life is turned on its head when she receives word that Kabir, her teenage son, has absconded to India to find his father, a man he's never met. Katya's rage to find him is fuelled by the fact that she hates her country. Kabir's search takes him to Vidarbha, Maharastra, a village that is plagued by an epidemic string of suicides. He finds his father at the heart of it, trying to save the farmers from their own hands and instantly he is mesmerized by the man his mother once loved. Katya rushes from Seattle to whisk Kabir away, but things don't go as she planned. A woman damages her own life to save Kabir and asks Katya to take care of her husband and see to it that he survives the epidemic. In doing so, Katya finds herself again in front of Kabir's father and begins to question her own past decisions. A story that explores the poverty plaguing India's villages, Sonora Jha's novel explodes with all the passion and colour of India.

Story of forgotten prople

The description of book says : "The book is a fictionalized account of the farmers suicides in contemporary India. It is set in Seattle and in Vidarbha, Maharashtra, with the two worlds tumbling together in a web of suicide, politics and betrayal."

I would take one word out - "fictional". May be story-line is fictional and less real than the reality but it is enough to make you realize what we are doing to our people.
The narrative is good and it does show the amount of research done. It is the story of our people - of thousand splendid suns in our country. I know it i...

The narrative is good and it does show the amount of research done. It is the story of our people - of thousand splendid suns in our country. I know it is not right to compare this to other masterpieces ; but yes it does make a space for itself.
