Absolute Brilliant. I love everything about this book. The plot is unusual yet unique. The story has completely taken me by surprise. The characters are well sorted and the story flows like a river, smooth and serene. The story is full of unexpected turns and bumps and surprising revelations that lead to the end.
I love everything about Dulari. Death separates her with her beloved twin sister, Ujjwala. The bond she shares with her sister exists beyond life and death. Her spirit is a constant companion to Ujjwala and hopes to reborn as Ujjwala’s daughter and find a home for herself. She is formless, powerless, no one to love, no home but a dream for a rebirth.
I love how the author draws her character. I am surprised by her powerful and artistic imagination. You won’t be disappointed investing your time in the book. The book is a good read for the readers looking for new plot and a fresh story. This is a perfect read for ardent readers who dive deep and savor the story. Will Dulari’s wait ever ends? Will her dream of life ever fulfill?
The only downer could be for few are its length which comprises good 350 pages. You have to sit back and patient and let the story unwrap one layer at a time. If you are a rush reader or night reader, you need a good time to reach the end. You cannot complete it in one go or in one night or in one weekend.
Breaking the barriers of all the biases and custom stories. I congratulate Sanchali for bringing such a beautiful and poignant tale. The story depicts bond of sisterhood, life struggles, the upheaval of emotions and a tale of life and death and a long wait of Dulari. Give it a go.
