Summary A River Sutra

With imaginative lushness and narrative elan Mehta provides a novel that combines Indian storytelling I hate reading HindiSanskrit poetry in translationNow that it is out of my system I have mixed feelings about this one Stories are interesting some than others but there is no novel here There is the common theme of Narmada and love but no central narrative to bind all the storiesAlso the book is targeted at the western audience which becomes painfully clear when 2 Indian talking to each other about Indian music feel the need to say that I was not even permitted to sing the seven notes of the scale the sa re ga ma pa dha ni that are the do re mi fa so la ti of western music On reading that sentence I suddenly felt like when somebody seems to be talking to you and you look back and realize that they are talking to the person behind youI seem to be running into this thing again and again with Indian English writing Perhaps this is what has changed with the current crop of writers That they are telling stories of Indians for Indians
