    Met Expectations

    A Broken Man, a Review
    Akash Verma, the bestselling author of two previous novels appears to have done it again with A Broken Man, published by Shristi.
    This is a love story, but not just another love story. It is a story about politics, caste, student movements, the vernacular versus English divide, culture shock and the creative process.
    The protagonist is a dalit boy from the backwaters of India’s hinterland who comes to a city to try and escape poverty through education. Here he gets inv...

    A good one time read

    Overall, a decent read. The book is essentially a love story about a man from a "backward" caste and an "upper" caste girl, who meet in a city. Set in UP, the feel and ambiance of the book is rather earthy and could be a tad difficult for a Bombay person like me. Not a bad thing, frankly :) The characters are well etched but nothing extra-ordinary. Possibly, that's how the author wants us to relate to them. The situations (barring 2 - 3) are quite realistic in their setting. But the absolute ...

    Inspirational, worth reading

    The book is certainly worth reading where the author put the facts about Dalit community on our table. It is just not a love story but a story of Dailts hardships, their never-ending struggles and the differences and rules set by the society for this deprived section of the society. Author has skillfully woven the love story of a Dalit boy and Brahmin girl where Chhavi becomes the light and guide for this low caste boy called Krishna. It's story of a time, inspiration, patience, inequality an...

    Simple and intense

    Review of “A Broken Man” – Akash Verma
    ‘A Broken Man’ is a college romance taking place in the backdrop of student politics.

Family pressure leads them to part ways. What follows is the everlasting impact they have on each other’s life. With no communication except for a yearly birthday greeting, it is the only thing that keeps them g...

    Nice read

    The story is very well written and neatly presented. Even though the central theme is highly sensitive, that is the caste issue, the author has highlighted it so effortlessly amidst a love story. The story brings about a varied set of emotions that range from being emotionally shut down to bursting with joy.

    While reading this book, have a background sound of any of the tracks by Arijeeth Singh (That’s what I did) to literally get lost into the book. The words pop out and touch you while do...
