A Respectable Woman

A Respectable Woman characters ↠ 107 Easterine Kire ´ 7 download read & download A Respectable Woman   In her new novel Easterine Kire explores one woman’s journey through these altered realities In doing so she also uncovers the underbelly of a society in transition one that is reluctant to cast off traditional ways even as it entangles itself in the problems of the modern world. Rating 4255I had almost no knowledge about Nagaland and the battle of Kohima during the Second World war when the Japanese tried to invade and capture Kohima I have seen it and felt it that the bigger picture of WWII rarely involves India and most people fail to recognize India s importance in it And this is why books like these help us understand that India was a part of it and was affected as much as other nations if not It follows the story from the eyes of Kevinuo s mother Azuo and her grandmother Atsa and herself I got to know so much about their culture and traditions I love how supportive Azuo s was and how calm and sorted Kevinuo wasThe very first line of the book will grasp your attention and the story captures the pre war and post war situation in Kohima and how the lives of the people were affected The whole city was re built from scratch and turned out to be modernized the new houses were strong people started to understand the importance of education But of course the war took away so many lives and left the city with clouds of sorrow and pain shadowing it into the darknessThe way the author has talked about death is comforting and satisfying I know it sounds weird but I felt this way I would like to uote one line from the book which I couldn t stop thinking about There he was a vibrant lovely young man who everyone loved and suddenly he was dead and lying in a coffin It was unreal unacceptable But death is always unacceptable I know it s not something new to know but it really shows the beauty of her writing I would really recommend this bookThank you so much zubaanbooks for this bookEasterine Kire
