A broken man: book review

Book blurb
Take a deep breath before you are born here, my child! You take birth in a land where I struggled; Gave it my sweat and blood. A land that I thought belonged to me..… Unbridled, uncompromising. 

Krishna is a Dalit boy from Bihar who struggles too overthrow the chains that hold him back. Chhavi is a high caste Brahman girl fighting for the rights of others, propagating equality in a politically charged Lucknow University campus. After Krishna saves Chhavi from getting torched during a protest against reservation, love slowly blossoms, only to be ruthlessly crushed by a society that thrives on divisions of caste and religion. From student politics in Lucknow to the interiors of Bihar, from the corridors of power to the glitz of media and the film industry in Mumbai. 

A Broken Man is the quest of a deprived Krishna to redeem hope from despair, love from separation and success out of repeated failures.

The story is about a dalit boy, Krishna, and the challenges he faced in his life. The major turn in the story came when he fell in love with a Brahmin girl, Chhavi, who is an activist in college, and is the daughter of a local politician, Pandit ji. Will this love story blossom against the deep rooted cast system?   

The story deals with the love and faith a couple requires to fulfill their commitment of staying together.  

Chhavi’s character is portrayed beautifully. The protagonist, Krishna, is also sketched lovable. The stories that Chhavi kept telling Krishna, are worth admirable and leave impressions on the readers. 

The poems written in the book are awesome. Poem lovers will certainly admire this part. These poems are thought provoking and hence making this art a deep and intriguing one.

The language used by the author, Akash, is simple, formal and understandable. This makes the book easy to read. 

The story got predictable at a few sections, but this point can be ignored. All in all, this is an entertaining one time read. 

Kudos to Srishti Publishers and Akash Verma for ‘A Broken Man’! 

Book cover

There’s nothing to appeal in the cover. It is simple and ordinary. It certainly could be improved.
