In the news on '21/05/12' in 'MID DAY'

This is the story of Rukhsana, a savvy Afghan journalist, and someone accustomed to independence. But with the arrival of Taliban her freedoms have become severely curtailed. Unsurprisingly, she’s desperate to flee Kabul, but is held back by an ailing mother and younger brother. Then, one day she’s called to the Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice to meet its head, the notorious Zorak Wahidi. He tells her that the winning team of the cricket match he’s organizing will be sent to Pakistan for training to prepare for an international cricket match.

On the face of it, though, the idea appears ridiculous: hardly anyone in Afghanistan understands cricket, and Taliban will never embrace a game rooted in civility, fairness and equality. Only Rukhsana knows how to play cricket through her time in Delhi. The tournament offers hope for an escape for herself and her cousins. So Rukhsana starts to work on a daring plan that might just give them all the escape route they so desperately crave.

A cliched yet feel-good novel

The book in itself doesn't teach you anything new. The backdrop itself is a rip off of other novels catering to the Taliban theme. The writing is a breath of fresh air. The words are subtle ad the language lucid. All in all, not a must read but something which will keep you engaged for a day or two.
