Paradise Lost Or Gained?

A novel that accurately captures the ethos of Indians who leave their homeland in search of a better future

What is really Paradise? Is it the land where we live or is it the land that we seek. The old phrase “grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” holds true as we Indians try to grapple with understanding which is a better world. 

When first time author Smita Kale sent us her maiden book, we thought it would be another ‘run of the mill’ NRI novel. But when I started reading What A Paradise!, I found the stories about the four protagonists – Jane, Namita, Lila and Rukmini quite relatable. Most of us who moved overseas in the 1980s come from similar backgrounds and have had similar experiences. Despite being ‘progressive’, settling down in a new country can be quite challenging. We try to adapt to a new culture while also trying very hard to stay rooted to Indian values. And when these characters meet at a Big Fat Indian wedding, they realise that India too has changed. The stories unfold amidst these festivities and some problems in-between.

    You made a great post about the Paradise and what it is all about. I like such idea to learn about it. Also from https://www.resumeshelpservice.com/theresumecenter-com-review/ I learn the detail of such amazing ideas.
