Read Aftertaste ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB E Todarmal family glued together by money not love includes the weak and emasculated Rajan Papa who is desperately in need of cash; Sunny the dynamic head of the business with an ugly marriage and a demanding mistress;. Reading a second book by an author is much like watching a movie seuel the reader s expectation is a greater barrier for the author to scale than merely a plot or a narrative Namita Devidayal s first book The Music Room a memoir with a twist featuring the life and times of her music teacher as the centerpiece was a wonderful debut for this journalistLike the earlier book Aftertaste also has a central theme not music but something primal food Specifically the heavenly mithai that the matriarch of the Todarmal family has converted into a thriving business Mummyji as the powerful old woman is known is in the hospital suffering from a stroke from which she is not expected to recover The book chronicles the effect of this event on the condition of her four grown children and the impact her impending death has on the family dynamicsThe narration moves back and forth between the days prior to Mummyji s stroke in the lives of Rajan Papa the oldest son who is in a financial crunch which his doting mother is aware of but does nothing to alleviate Suman the once beautiful elder daughter who preaches spirituality and detachment but is firmly entrenched in the material world Saroj the unfortunate dark skinned younger daughter struggling with her personal tragedy compounded by Mummyji s tyranny and Sunny the youngest spoilt son who is juggling an extra marital affair while dealing with business problemsThrough the lives of one family the book shows the obsession of business families with money and its constant pursuit which becomes an end in itself even as the family ties chafe under the eternal pressure to maintain wealth and importantly social standing Mummyji transforms the sagging fortunes of her husband by using her skill at making mithais and as she traverses the traditional barriers she picks up the family honor and the power that accompanies her actions A strategy of bribing her kids either with food or money leaves a devastating trail in the dysfunctional family spelling doom even for the next generationThe story is fairly interesting but the author s use of similes and metaphors about food leave a bad taste Instead of the gentle show not tell style of the Music Room there is judgment and justification for each character s action an analysis of events from the author s point of view about the reason the characters behave the way they do While a few loose ends are tied up at the end it was heartening to see the surprise unresolved piece which is apparent but invisible to the ones who clamor for itI was reminded of a similar family saga Home by Manju Kapoor which focused on the lives of three generations of a business family that settles in Delhi after the partition Both books read like polished versions of the family soaps popular among TV viewers Perhaps it is in this element that as a serious reader I am disappointed
