  • Description

    A Flight of Pigeons, written by Ruskin Bond, is the story of the Labadoor family, set in 1857. The patriarch of the family is killed in a church, and Ruth Labadoor and her family have to take the help of Hindus and Muslims to find their way to their relatives.

    Summary of the Book

    This is a mix of fiction and non-fiction, which was also adapted as a major motion picture in 1978 by Shyam Benegal called Junoon. The Indian rebels kill Ruth’s father in a church, right before her eyes. Ruth’s mother, Mariam Labadoor, takes the whole family to a trusted friend called Lala Ramjimal, who does help them by giving them shelter at his home. But Mariam and Ruth get taken away by the Pathan leader, Javed Khan. He insists on getting married to Ruth but Mariam plainly declines the offer. Grab a copy of A Flight of Pigeons to find out what happens to the mother and the daughter and the rest of the family.

    Remarkable novel......As expected from Mr. Bond

    Story is set during the 1857 Sepoy mutiny. I'm sure many of us have read about the revolt and views on it from different people. But this book narrates the events and their effects on non-Indians, as viewed from the eyes of a small girl.

    And Ruskin Bond's skill in conveying emotions through writing is top notch. The novel is comparatively short and never loses it's grip on readers. Once you start the novel, the story has enough content and drama and suspense to keep you hooked to the book.
