There is madness in the city

Monday, August 13, 2012

Once Upon the Tracks of Mumbai by Rishi Vohra is the first novel written by a Certified Specialist of Wine, and a real heady tale it turns out to be, set in the heart of Mumbai. This is life described in a railway colony. Babloo is variously seen by his family, teachers and doctors as autistic, schizophrenic, while gossiping neighbours uncharitably brand him as dangerous and psychotic.

It is only Vandana, all compassion, who looks at him differently and gives that rare level comfort to his tormented and troubled mind and life. This girl-woman is yearning for a soulmate. Here is a story of two families arranging the wrong marriage, two brothers who hate each other being in love with the same woman, a villain of a cable operator. There is also the court decision that will change all their lives.

A nice and interesting story with lots of middle-class values and happenings, with the good trying to overcome evil.
