Tell Me a Story (Hardcover) Price: Rs.459

Set partly in the small, buzzing town of Amritsar and partly in New Delhi, this is the story of Rani, a young woman in contemporary India. She enjoys her work in a local beauty parlour though her lower middle-class family lives in a state of constant struggle?to make ends meet, to hang on to their dreams, to keep their fragile lives from collapsing.

As their financial troubles escalate, so do Rani?s sister-in-law?s taunts, brother?s frustration and father?s resignation. Random events happen that affect each of them, changing their lives forever.

Tell Me A Story displays remarkable clarity and depth in drawing up the real semi- urban living in India. Fragile and touching, it reminds us of how thin, tenuous are the connections which bind us to our illusory, sane-seeming lives.

When Amritsar met Delhi

The rich and the poor live alongside each other in India. So do they in Rupa Bajwa’s book. She is candid and compassionate. The author who won the XXIV Grinzane Cavour Prize for best first novel in June 2005, the Commonwealth Award in 2005 and Sahitya Akademi Award in 2006, has given her readers another novel, one that has stories that reflect the chaos of life. Readers will squirm and sometimes smile even as they enter a world they seldom connect with.

Poor will remain poor

A book that keep you thinking when a story will start but you are already halfway across the story.

I would look at it as a documentary about a lower middle-class family and how things revolves around her life only because of her financial worries.

Rupa Bajwa is getting a good recognition as a social writer. She can get to the depth of the real world scenario with an awesome story line.
