Wings of Silence

When you start reading Wings of Silence, you tend to go back and recheck if Shriram Iyer is a first time author!!. Read on to know why..

The read starts of with a glimpse of Ajay Sethi, a man of few words. The breadwinner of a typical Indian Family,who has the voice in the house.

For Ajay Sethi , an ex Air India Official, Discipline and success comes easily to him. Expecting the same from his Sons are something of second nature for him.

His sons Raj Sethi and Saurav Sethi as as different a...

Must read book

What an inspiring story!

The author has done full justice to the story. The book reflects a very strong research on deaf people and especially their life back in the 70s.

The novel has a strong, very interesting and heart touching storyline. One can really connect and relate to the feelings & emotions of all the characters, Raj’s desire to achieve his dream and Saurav’s faith and love for his brother in the story. The suspense keeps you reading. All the characters are very interesting and...

Wings of Silence- Family vs. Dream. What would you choose?

Shriram Iyer’s Wings of Silence touched many emotions which perfectly depicted a family drama, passion, determination, and a fight for survival. Intelligently crafted to capture the minds of the audience right from the very beginning steadily building up the hunger to know what happens next. Characters so beautifully personalized made you feel strong emotions towards them. I was sad when I finished this novel because i wanted more. Cannot wait for Mr Iyer’s next release.

An earthy, grounded adventure

The kind everyone can relate to, the main character is NOT perfect, but is rather a realistic reflection of what we would be like if we were in his position - this only makes his story more compelling and his sacrifices more heartwrenching. The suspense keeps you reading, and the desire to see Saurav attain not only a "win" but also self-confidence, and self-appreciation, grows with every page. I recommend this book to anyone who likes reading realistic, well-researched stories with a believa...
