  • eBook: Belonging by Umi Sinha

    Umi Sinha's unforgettable debut is an intense, compelling and finely wrought epic of love and loss, of race and ethnicity, of homeland and of belonging. 'Belonging is one of the rare books in which as a reader you are in love with all the three characters simultaneously. The narrative is like an exquisite tapestry... There are perfectly crafted glimpses of violence perpetrated by the natives against the British in 1857, loyalty of Indian soldiers, the insensitivity of the British army towards Indian soldiers in the First World War. The author remarkably paints the societal system where sahibs and their bibis, paedophily, incest, cheating wives and friends are juxtaposed with loyalty, honour, valour, sensitivity and true love.'
