Having heard so much about the writings of the authorI had to read this acclaimed book It’s nothing like what I have read there’s Raghuvar Prasad who teaches mathematics to primary school children in a small town college who lives in a single rented room He takes a jitney to the college and is on the verge of starting a married life with his wife The story could have gone into any direction about domestic life about life’s purpose about relentless struggles about poverty or about battling social ills It’s none of this instead we are taken to in a different realm altogether with the characters in the book through a window in the wall And then you find yourself marvelling at the word play the poetry that emerges from short sentences the languor that envelops the pace taking the reader to the sheer delight of what our imagination can lead us to discover The writing touches upon the magic of simplicityof wonder and joy in small things the uniueness that we miss in what we assume are the mundane matters of everyday life It is not something to be boxed up neatly in a genreit’s vibrant in terms of the imagery it evokes in the simplest of word play

Simple village setting A very poor teacher stretching ends to meet living in a small room with a big windowThis is the story of the couple's fascination with a pet elephant and his mahout Sadhu a bluethroat bird a nearby lake full of lotus and natural surroundingsTheir imagination takes flight when they jump out through that window to enter a world of their own Magical realismThe language is very simple But the narration is very much abstract and vague which is why it would have won the Sahitya Akademi I guess and which is why I couldn't like it much

The tin box in which Sonsi keeps her precious things But there is a magical place beyond the window which sustains Raghuvir Prasad's and Sonsi's spirit This window lived in a wa. Best thing about the book is its style of narration its language that deals with articulating subtle and sinuous often contradictory ways of human thought told through the innocuous characters of Raghuvar Prasad and his wife Sonasi The story has several moments that tickle you and perhaps bring you to chuckle over it as well The only thing I did not like about the book was its pretension of trying to be a regular novel of story where there was none At times the repetitiveness of plot begins to bore to the hilt If only author had still further reduced the size of an already short novella it might have had fared better In short an amazing narration style and innocuous characters make this book a worth read but overall book has the deficiency of overdoing the good thing and going nowhere with that Read it if you are a regular Hindi novel reader to enjoy its lyrical prose that is all to it
