A compelling read, beautiful, nostalgic and poignant!

You don't judge a book from it's cover they say, I did and I was definitely not disappointed in this case Ashim Choudhury has used his splendid descriptive abilities to the full as he relates to us his childhood experiences as Kalu Biswas, in retrospect.

The Sergeant's Son is an exceptionally well written account of the life of a boy as he grows up among his 3 brothers in a lower middle class Bengali family in Mumbai and later in Allahabad, the quest for his identity, his penchant for art and the choices he makes between his passion and his responsibility in the face of insurmountable odds.

An excellent experience

I took a chance to buy a first attempt of an unknown author. But the title and the cover design attracted me as also the excerpt. As a first attempt, it is superb. I do not have an iota of doubt that the protagonist is the author himself, and when he describes "Kalu", he writes about self. However, there are places where the author could restrain himself - he could avoid the detail description of a new game, long chapters on sex, repeated attempt to establish antithetic characteristics of his parents, etc. Although he almost successfully establish his father as a villain in the novel, he fails

Nostalgic & tende

As reviewed, Nostalgic & tender. Clearly depicts those days of a simple living life.
Characters are so enlightened, can not stop reading in half-way until you finish the whole story.
Though I am yet to finish it, I recommend this is a must read to calm the texture in you and this novel indeed justifies the tenderness.
